How many rails do I have?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an off brand Newton n1000p-00 psu:
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=N1000P-00-R

And I was wondering if it had enough rails to power today's modern cards in crossfire/sli. I'm mainly looking at if it's enough to power let's say 2 6950/6970's or 2 570s/580s or a single 590/6990. I don't know that much about psu's, but a friend told me if I don't have enough rails or something, then it won't be able to handle crossfire and sli too well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Erase the word "rails" from your memory. So many people who have no idea what it means and make stuff up and pass it off like they know what they're on about... Just forget it.


Newton Power are built by Delta Electronics for Dell, they're very high-quality units. That PSU could support SLI GTX480s with a PhysX card easily.

Sorry, I know I've asked similar questions about 10 times, and you keep telling me the same thing. People just keep telling me how off-brands suck and to buy a new psu, because they are more reliable. Frankly I don't want to buy a new psu, so I keep asking questions to make sure I'm set with the one I got. The only real issue is that if I wanted to crossfire, I'd have to get an 8 pin extender, but thats nothing.

The people telling you to buy a new PSU most likely do not know that yours is a Delta built unit.

Anyway, your PSU is good, so don't listen to people that say otherwise.

Most of them probably wouldn't know who Delta Electronics are, or their reputation.

Kind of like the situation with SeaSonic a few years back, with people saying "SeaSonic? lol what a cheap sounding off brand buy a Corsair". Main difference is Delta is unlikely to go retail like SeaSonic did in 2005 (though it still took until the X series in 2010 for them to get the recognition they deserved).

According to the site you linked it has 5 12v rails at 18A each.

phaedrus is an expert on PSU's if he says it is good, don't worry about it. He always speaks the truth.

The PCI-E slot can support 75 watts, but its +12V rail is limited to up to 480 watts. The remainder of the graphics card’s TDP thus needs to come from its 6-pin or 8-pin PCI-E connectors

Heres how it looks basically
