Can the Coolermaster Extreme Power+ 700w handle it?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Right now i've got:

e8400 @ 3600Mhz @ 1.3v
6GB Corssair Dominator @ 1066Mhz
8800GT (stock)
1.5TB HDD (3 SATA)
5 x 120mm LED fans
2 x 140mm Fans
Coolermaster Extreme Power+ 700w

Everything worked fine till my GPU died
Now it's that time of year to upgrade to a
ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II

My question is that will my PSU be able to handle it (cause I've heard some bad reviews about it ) or will I have to get a new one?

Thank You

That should handle it no problems

If you have the money to spare it wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade to a corsair hx750 or a Antec SG-650

Quick question why do you have 6GB Corssair Dominator @ 1066Mhz and in your sig rig
Corsair 2048MB 1066 + Patriot 4096MB 1066

ah right was wondering

It could well of been a over voltage that caused it to mess up or it could of been a natural death,

Coolmaster's psu's can be unpredictable their psus are either very good or very bad Im sorry to say you didnt get the golden egg one

If your going to replace the 8800gt with a higher spec gpu then it's not a bad idea to upgrade the psu aswell.

alright
would my previous OCZ Stealth extreme 600w be a better option than the Coolermaster ?

It's not a bad PSU. It's bad compared to other power supplies that are 80+ certified yeah, but it will be more than enough to power your GTX560 Ti. I think it will run nicely with your C2D.

(FYI: My friend has that card and an Extreme Power+ 650, and runs fine with OC on CPU and GPU.)

only just tbh, A friend of mine had one, his username is driftingforlife if you want to ask him about it.

He had one and it sparked out and took his board out took a month to get his computer back working after all the rma-ing you honestly will be better of with a corsair/antec for your rig

Well he's not buying the PSU, and the EP+ 700 would be suffice. Doesn't need more than that until he actually does a MB and CPU upgrade.

Dude 700w is more than sufficient what im saying is that persific psu is a pile of dog droppings and when it goes the way of old yellow he will be lucky if it doesn't take out his rig.
