DFI Recommended Power Supplies (UPDATED October 20th, 2006!)

Recommended Posts

Well, just to let you know, my Enermax AWT620 blew out a couple days ago. I guess it's still under warranty, so I'll try to get it replaced, then sell it. Seemed to be running fine for a couple of months, then just suddenly went.

 

CPU was running at 2.64Ghz @ 1.45Volts

VGA and RAM were not overclocked at all.

Just did my first DFI build want to thank every-one for the info!

I found the forums a day late because I bought a BFG 650watt power supply.

After research I found out that it is a rebadged epower ($69 at the Egg). I paid alot more. Going to do the return thing and get an Corsair or OCZ.

Thanks again.

(sig is coming)

Hello Ladies :)

 

first day in and already nasty...

--> any experiences yet about DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G (RD600) and Enermax Infiniti 720W ?

 

Same *old* probs like:

Dear Sir:

 

I have noted that you have submitted a number of requests for service over the last few months for a variety of boards. At this point I must ask if you represent a shop which carries our products, or if you represent a private individual who happens to use alot of our boards? I beleive that this is the 3rd request.

Dear Sir:

 

I will grant RMA service on the board, but I strongly recommend that you discontinue use of the Enermax Liberty PSU. DFI does not recommend the PSU type any longer. I suspect that it has had a gradual destructive effect on the board to the point of the current failure. Please see the following link for a list of recommended PSUs:

This may not quite be in line with the subject of the thread, but I have a question.

 

What PSUs are recommended for very low-end systems? We're talking, for example, Socket 754, Sempron, onboard video, 512 MiB of RAM, one HDD and one optical drive. And no overclocking in any event. I'm thinking definitely under $50 but right now I've got a PSU in mind for $25:

This is not a planned build, but rather a screen shop I was doing at Newegg last night to see just how cheaply I could build a decent system. Now what I came up with, excluding the case and optical drive, came up to under $200, and I know a lot of people for whom this would be an upgrade. Now the question is, would that PSU do the job for a really low-end system?

 

 

I have another question, but it relies on speculative estimation, so take it with a grain of salt. What PSUs are being recommended for R600, if any?

Not exactly recommended but have a look anyway because I think this is as close as you are going to get to recommended.

I think this one answers my question quite nicely.

 

The Full PSU list in the beginning of this thread is nice for midrange to high-end systems, but there's nothing there that matched my tight budget assignment. In practice though I don't think I'd come across many who would mind spending a little more cash for a bit more decent system - this was just an experiment to see how cheaply I can build an acceptably decent system. The lists you showed me (well the one in particular since I already knew about this one) are a great resource though, so thanks. :D

 

So any recommendations on the R600?

Sorry I don’t have a recommendation for the R600 as you can tell from my SIG I am not exactly on the graphics card cutting edge by a long way although my OC'd 6800GT plays Call of duty & Medal of Honour well enough for me.

 

Its just I have also experimented with cheap PSU's mainly for my work because they wont pay £100.00 each for nice ones.

 

I found although the 120mm fans are poorly balanced & 6 out of 10 PSU vibrate because of this the EZ-COOL 600W has never let me down in a 24/7 business environment running DFI experts & Opty's

I vote the Corsair.

 

If you're gonna go SLI, the Expert would be good for the extra space it offers. The Venus? Good luck on that :D
