Dfi and enermax problem

Recommended Posts

i RMA'd and am thinking of picking up the FSP FX700-GLN quad rails and $170. i wanted modular and future, but, i guess the tech hasn't caught up yet. The Silverstone Strider i believe is quad rail too, but, FSP is a solid PSU company so i think i am gonna go that route. From everything that i read (wish i did it befire i bought the liberty) is that there is a load balancing issue with dual rail PSU's. that said single rail and quad rail(better balanced) have a lot better time operating at good levels. Supposedly you hafta load the 3.3v, and the 5v rails to a balance with the 12v rail on the dual rails which is straight up retarded. anyway, GL whith your next choice..

 

 

 

Edit: little review of the FSP along with the liberties

I had "initial" problems with my enermax liberty 500w

but showed up to be a rookie error from my side as i did not connect

the 4pin P4 12v connector as i could not find it, the board did not boot.

Found out later that the 8-pin connector was "splittable" and i connected

it and it worked 100% rock solid ever since, doing Opteron 165 @ 2,7Ghz

on water and the PSU is the most silent iwe ever owned! QUALITY!

I remenber a thing, with levicom i don´t need the extra power connections(hdd&fdd molex) to run. Could be posible that with enermax need this extra connections to run??

There are 4 connections you MUST make: 24 pin power, 4 pin power, 4 pin molex, 4 pin floppy.

 

you 4 pin power connector is the 8 pin which splits in half. You have a modular cable which has both the 4 pin molex and 4 pin floppy connectors on it that you will need as well.

Well, most likely its that, in _my_ case i was CRAZY no boot, i didnt think

not connecting the P4 connector would make a diff, but it made ALL the difference.

So now u know i have enermax 500w and it was a boot - no boot difference.

good luck :)

I see some users with this problem with liberty. Im waiting for Rma´s unit to try again. If don´t works fine, are the enermax noisetaker 600w a good change or this psu have the same problems?

Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by, "i didnt think not connecting the P4 connector would make a diff,".

 

The P4 power connetor provides current directly to the CPU power circuits. It is a required connection just like all four power connections on these motherboards.

My issue is different, i have a cheap psu that with 24 and p4 connections runs solid rock with mobo, cpu, 2 dvd units, 1 hd 200gb sata, 2x 120mm fan, 1x140mm fan, and overclock without problems, and enermax no even trying with fdd and hdd.

Im waiting for rma to know whats the problem.
