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

28 October 2006 - 07:29 AM

Im running my NF4 on a 430 watt PSU rock stable @ 2620mhz. Whats with this forum and the recommended PSU's? Best? #1, #2, #3? OK.... thats a personal opinion and not a fact. The guys at Tomshardware, Anandtech, and Xbitlabs doesnt seem to think so. And whats up with the DO Not Buy the Enermax 620 PSU? Maybe the one you tested had a defect? My friend has the the Enermax 620 PSU powering his Lanparty NF4 and he doesnt have any problems. I mean who evers in charge here should really clean up the forum. It's really misleading. And kinda embarassing. I persoanally come here to see what other users have to say and to get help from the average user. Please Keep your personally opinion as is and dont put it up as a fact. I thought this was an official forum supported by DFI. And whats with mad russian? If he's a mod he should get banned from the forums, and if he works for DFI he should get fired. He flames people all the time, PMS maybe? ummm... Would expect better from college graduates but oh well I guess everyone isn't so fortunate.

weird.. I just went to extreme outervision and did that PSU calculator thing and it said I need atleast a 483w PSU for my current system. Volta Im not having any problems whatsoever with my current setup, and the PSU gets a little warm when Im playing games. PSU calculator is bull crap as I have a 430w PSU and Extreme outervision is saying minimum 483w PSU. HA!
Oh and my CPU idles at 27c and on full load around 37-40c. This is a decent temp for 1.45v no?

ROK stable at 2620, vcore @ 1.45. I just got a fan controller and a new fan to go with the ninja as the original fan was spinning too slow. Next target frequency = 2.7ghz. I was initially running at 2.7ghz before I went down to 2.6, wasnt very stable. Im going to try and get it stable in the next few days with more voltage and see what happens. Cheers.

Yes I appreciate your suggestions, my manual says a minimum of 400w I think. My PSU is running so cool you know, if I was stressing it it would be alot warmer. So I know I have enough power. PSU are overated in my opinion. Anyhow I o/ced my rig to 2.6 yesterday, memtest pass! I ran 3Dmark05 all the well through, I let my room for about 30 minutes came back and the benchmark was finished, so I click ok and bamm! reboot. so it was unstable. I was running it at 1.425v I may have to up the voltage a bit. I've noticed most people that have a 2.8ghz overclock has their vcore to like 1.5v is this safe? Do you guys know what the default voltage is on the X2 5000+?

nah I just got this power supply for around 120 usd. I dont see any problems as far as power goes as of right now. Maybe when I go SLI but I doubt I ever will because the only game I play is BF2, and starcraft ocaasionally. Yeah its a rock solid power supply with plenty of amps to go around. People seem to emphasize on the power supply alot but I use to run this rig on a 330w power with no problems. I only recently got this power supply because it looks cool(modular).
Anyways I tried lowering my cpu multi to 8, fsb to 350, and htt at 3, system wouldnt boot, corrupted my windows too, almost had to do a reinstall. Im gonna try it again see if I can reach it by upping the voltage. Let you guys know what happens. If I can get it stable at those speeds then Ill shoot for 3ghz. wish me luck!
