Time for a new psu

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Mine is a crap load of noise and im going to get a new one. Im most like getting this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371039 . Does anyone else here have it? when the fan is on low is it quiet? also is it better to have the voltages higher or lower.

Look at my system, I only need a 1000w PSU. Bulldozer and sandy bridge don't use as much power as my i7 875K, So a good 1000w would work out well in your new build.

If your going to be running 3 6950's, ATI recommends 150-250Watt per card! So you probably will need that much power.

That's adjusted for the mass of horrible PSUs on the market; a solid unit will draw much closer to 150 per card (perhaps even less).

Do yourself a favor and grab either the Seasonic X850. That will be enough for all of that with room to spare.

why? what game actually require that type of power? how many monitors are you using at what resolution and refresh rate? wouldn't you be MUCH better off with a single or a pair of 7970's?

also, WHY is this post in the SILENT computing section? biggrin.gif
