I have a huntkey psu (see rocketfish) i got it for like 40 bucks from my work with my discount, i haven't really had any problems with it so far, but i do let everyone know that they're not for dual high end gpu setups. I'd heard awhile ago huntkey rates their psus 100w above what they should be.

Actually, you have a 650w Huntkey PSU. Best Buy decided to market it as a 700w unit.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

And it only has 41A on the 12V which makes it a 550W PSU .

Who rates by continuous output? Peak output is better.

The older Huntkey PSUs were pretty good considering the cost, but yeah the new ones are completely crap.

I can think of a good comeback for that, let alone keep a straight face when I read it.

It's better for Huntkey .

The key word here is combined 12V rating. Just because it has 4 rails that will allow a max of 18A per rail doesn't mean that the rails are supposed to be added together.


12V combined rating is 509W or ~42A. That does not make it a 700W PSU by modern standards. That should be rated for 600W at best.

edit: And actually the manual states it has 41A on the 12V, but on the label they decided to add a few watts on the 12V to get it up to 700W so it was a nice even number. The 41A comes from the PSU it is based on, the 650W Huntkey Titan.
