PSU Enough - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
On the back of one 580 lightning box:

minimum 700 watt psu
42 amp 12v rail. 1200 watt had both as well as over 100 amps on the 12v rail. One of my clan buddies thought it could have been voltage drops. Ups should take care of that, plus I needed it anyway. Since I got a refund on both of those parts I am about to get replacements. I will keep you guys updated. I am sure some of you are curious as to what the issue could have been. Voltage drops sounds very realistic to me.

That's 100W more than the reference version.

Still, this 700W recommendation is referring to peak-rated units. So even a high quality 600-650W unit would have plenty which means that maybe a high quality 850W is about the minimum to power a system with two of these in SLI which means something like Corsair's TX950 is a good fit.

So I'm saying that the AX1200W is still more than enough, and so I guess I'm agreeing that maybe it was something funky like voltage drops or something.

I suppose you can experiment by first trying to run everything without the new UPS since you'll have a completely different PSU. If the problem persists but ends up being fixed by the UPS, then you'll be able to say that it was an external problem all along and not the PSU.

True, but at this point I just want my computer back up and running and I have a very limited time to do it, so I will probably just plug everything up as safely as possible. I've been out of my desktop for a couple weeks now, and at this point, I just want to play my video games, considering I also have two weeks away from college classes as well.

Got my 1500w in and hooked it up, it was running and everything shut down after about an hour. After numerous troubleshooting techniques, none of which seemed to make any sense because they all led me to believe something that wasnt true, I realized that this psu has 8 12v rails, so I put my 1000w back in and everything has been working fine for a few hours now, even with both video cards in. Last time I buy corsair power supplies, and the last time I buy a psu with more than 1 12v rail. I almost feel like an idiot after all of these computer problems, since I had the psu I needed the entire time. *sigh*

Returning the 1500w to newegg for a refund.

also, during my troubleshooting, I did take my psu and plug it into a surge protector rather than my ups, and the 1500w did not blow out like the corsair did. In the case of the corsair 1200w, it was the psu, and in the case of the silverstone 1500w, I believe it is because of the multiple 12v rails. Figured I would let everyone know just for future reference. Thank you all for any help that was given. I am posting this from my desktop running my 1000w psu once again, and that psu will be going back in my computer.
