[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 199

post #1981 of 7108
Updated owner's list.

Went to get my oil changed today, luckily I had $98 in-shop credit at the mechanic, so didn't cost me a dime. And I have money left over.

Unfortunately I need to get my timing belt and water pump replaced soon, but it can probably hold off until mid-September as I have 5000 miles to go before I hit the recommended mileage for replacement.

Luckily I only travel 100miles a week, AT MOST. 10 minutes from work feels good man.

The ATX devil has been talking on my shoulder once more, wanting a 990FX chipset from AMD and the Sabertooth board (which I am a HUGE fan of those series), but am trying hard to not go that route, because mATX is where it's at.

That guy is a wizard with PSU's.
PSU calculators are marketing tools.

A 2500K @ 4.5 GHz with GTX560TI @ 900 both at heavy load draw around 350 Watt
- another GTX 560TI needs max 225.

At the specified combined dc output a Seasonic X-660 draws around 730 Watt.

X-660 is way enough.

Just now got back with the HD5670..
Had some trouble with my credit card..
Gotta change my bank or something, freaking fed up with the BS I get from Osuuspankki.

BUT, I think I'll have some time later this evening to test the card and see if I can recreate that bug. Or tomorrow, we'll see.

Now I'm off to the booze shop hehah

E: Ironage, yeah I agree with you but AX750 or AX850 would be imo way better choice, the fan profile on those psu's is just pure awesomeness. Idle = fan doesn't even spin.
The fan is temperature triggered so.
Don't know about the X-660 fan though so..

Same with the Seasonic X-660 or Corsair AX 650W ATX 2.3 (CMPSU-650AX).

They are all based on the Seasonic X-Series topology.

That slim scythe fan moves almost no air, and has a static pressure near 0 too. Forget it.

If you dont have the space for noctuas star destroyer, just go for another. There are a lot of 120mm fan CPU coolers out there, or just get a mini watercooling kit, like Corsair Hydro series, or Antec H2O.

This isn't some PSU calculator from outervision or anything. This is an OCN PSU Editor giving his recommendations in a thread since so many people ask for his advice, because he knows power supplies so well. Who is he marketing for? Click on the link next time.

That been a statement about PSU calculators in general.

read it carefully now and you should do that to btw....

since that guy just wrote the same about GTX560 TI SLI Quad Core: 650W is enuff

Sorry, I'm siding with Ovlazek this time (but not next time! -shakes fist until he gets Ovlazek's WC set up).

Phaedrus is only recommending what wattage, he doesn't mention "buy the Seasonic X650" or "buy the Corsair TX650" or anything like that. His calculator is not a marketing tool, it's a utility to help us decide what we need because he gets asked nearly 50 times a day what type of PSU should we run.

UltraSwank also mentioned that he might like to upgrade to higher performing gpu's at a later date. An 850W would be plenty for dual 580's and even pushes towards dual 590's. So, if anything, I told him to low of a psu when I recommended 750W and the 850W was on the small side as well.

not very hard to calculate btw since the specs of the PSUs, CPUs and GPUs are know.

GTX560Ti with two 6x PCIe Connectors may just draw 225W peak each SLI ~450W
(in fact they most likely will not come very close to that)

An i5 Quad Core needs around 90-100W without OC with average OC around 120-130.

Now count in efficiency ... this is no wizardry at all ... it is pretty simple math.
