Kiajoon Posted March 28, 2006 Posted March 28, 2006 Your NB should not overheat as the NB heatsink will spin up to cool it down through bios settings. Nvidia certified PSUs are not certified for overclocking. Its a different circuitry on the board altogether in regards to the PSU's power draw for overclocking and to the VGAs. They are certified as they can address the requirements of the 2 PCI-e connectors. I doubt they can even test it on a 3000+ running 2 monster VGA cards? Anyone knows the exact Nvidia test specs? Please correct my view if I am wrong. Most decent PSUs 450W and above will be able to run dual monster VGAs though they are not certified. You need to pay to get the certification and many companies are not willing to do that. Moreover Nvidia has stringent policies about certified PSUs and many manufactureres rather not comply, build a top notch PSU their own way, then to get it certified through a long process. Its like casings and processor heatsinks. Most of these best stuff are not certified by Intel or AMD as well. As Angry has said experience are the truths, much more reliable then 2 hour reviews or whatever they say to sell you the PSU. Ever wonder why some 600W PSU costs a quarter of the price of a proper one? For many here there are namely few PSUs they depend on -PCP&C, Zippy, OCZ, Seasonic, FSP to name but a few.
