yeah i wouldnt recommend going there, The creation of this thread proves my point the fact that because ive always asked there in the past i automatically assumed a Corsair 650tx wouldnt power a HD6870 just to find out that it could power two but in the past i have wasted alot of money based on there advice...

The power consumption of fans varies wildly depending on the type of fan, but a standard case fan averages <5W during normal operation. Check your fans, they should have a voltage and amperage rating on the sticker, do the math and you'll know how much they need

Usually not. Most case fans pull 3-5W on startup and 1-3W while running. LED fans take a few milliwatts more.

Only when you get into really high powered fans, like server fans from Delta, NMB, and Sanyo Denki, does fan power draw start to become a concern.

oh ok i get it, i mean i wasnt worried about it. if i can add an extra hd6870 then im sure my 5 case fans arnt going to kill my psu lol but thanks for the info interesting to know eitherway.

the reason i was asking anyway was i might add a 6th fan another 200mm top fan but i doubt that would draw as much power as a 2nd 6870

Yeah that would not be an issue. Those large fans are typically low power since they're quiet, your PSU will scoff at it.

Just saw the thread too. I read another thread there where some "other" moderator named Tyree claims a 550W PSU is minimum for a PC that has a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 and a 256MB 7300GS.

I remember Tyree. Stuck up, goose stepping little Dai wannabe.

I should quit this thread before I get in trouble for unprofessionalism.
