Psu For Me

Recommended Posts

hi guys, i'm new here so please help me with this problem :( . after installing some new hardware in my pc, i'm having trouble with my OS. it looks like the hard drive keep corrupting the files i installed upon restart ( including the OS itself! ) at first i tought the hard drive is the culprit but installing new hard drive still does not solve the problem so i made a conclusion that there is not enough power supplied to the system since the old setup was for low powered hardware ( unless u guys got other opinions :blink: ).this is my new hardware installed and my pc specs before upgrade

 

upgrade

 

athlon x2 7750BE

Corsair CM2X1024-6400 1GB 5-5-5-18

 

specs

 

athlon x2 BE2300 1.9 [email protected]

WD Caviar SE 160GB sata

LG 20x DVD-RW Sata

1 x 140mm fan

2 x 92mm pwm fan for cpu cooler

415w low end PSU wich operates at 70% efficiency (dont wanna tell the brand cause it sux )

Do you mean to say it doesn't have a brand, or You don't want to tell us?

If you don't tell us than how do you expect us to know if your PSU is the culprit?

a quality 500 watt power supply should be plenty to keep that rig going without problems...but i have no experience with cooler master units so i don't know of the quality?

 

can you post a link for the unit you're thinking of purchasing?

 

must you purchase in malaysia or can you purchase online? what online vendors have you used?

 

what is your budget?

Based on your system specs and links provided, I would go with the Corsair VX. You didn't specify whether you were looking at the VX 550 or 450 so if you can afford I would definitely go with the 550. It is a great PSU and would offer you some headroom for future upgrades. The 450 should run your system just fine but I like to play it safe and go up one level from what I need.

i am getting the 550 cause insufficient power sux, also i have been try to oc the x2 7750 and i managed to get 3.27ghz so i think the review this month is quite odd since they say it will only go 3.17 . not to mention i,m using PSU that sux and a asus mainstream mobo

I agree. The 7750s seem to be very good OC'ers and the average seems to be in the 3.3-3.4Ghz range with little voltage increases, ~3.1 is very weak and the lowest I've seen so far. I can boot into Vista at 3.5Ghz so far with the one I have, but it's not too stable. I'll play it with some more one of these days and see if I can get it any higher / stable.

 

Good choice on the 550. You won't regret the purchase. Your system should perform better and your OC may improve from having a much more stable power supply behind it. Good luck and let us know how it goes
