Scared to Shut Down - Page 3

post #21 of 53
out of nowhere i will recommend a seasonic m12d.

heaps of amps on the 12v rails, silver 80+ (its actually about 85-89+), cheap, and its very very quiet. usually a PSU is the culprit of a loud computer (unless you have ATI cards) and i cant even hear this over my 560.



bummer, newegg is out of stock on them

edit: this looks like the next best thing, based on my m12d i would assume that this is a quality power supply too.

So just to clarify - are you running *both* the GTX460 and the GTX260 (assuming 460 for main graphics and 260 for PhysX)? I may have recommended too much if you're NOT running both.

I appreciate where this thread is going, but I don't exactly have money to spend on a PSU at this moment. Before I start looking for my next power supply, I would like to know what more I can get out of the one I am currently using. Is my juiced up graphics card going to do harm to any other components if I continue to use it on this apparently out-dated PSU? I would like to use this one until it completely dies if possible...As I said, it restarts and hibernates just fine.

lol.

Sorry I wasnt very clear in my original post. I actually sold my 260 right when I bought the 460. That is why I don't exactly have another card to test atm.

Your post about the power consumption of the 460 seemed to make sense for me. I didn't realize that the 460 was much more power consuming than the 260 before I bought it. I had this problem the first time I installed it. I remember I made a bonehead move and powered on without the 6 pins plugged in...not sure if that does any harm. But it was doing that flickering thing. After I got it booted, I didnt have a problem with it for quite some time until it started happening everytime I powered on from a shut down.

Check the amps on the 12V rail or combined amps on all 12V rails if your power supply has multiple rails and compare it to your video card's requirements.

FTW :-)

My thought is your PSU should still be perfectly fine. I don't think it's dying necessarily - do you have another rig to test the PSU in? If it's perfectly fine in another case powering a less demanding rig (like my exact same PSU was) then you could probably off it on Craigslist or something for $30 and get yourself close to the cost of a new PSU.

Now buy the PSU listed here ($45 with $5 off coupon and $20 rebate = $20 PSU):
http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/52871

You will end up with a net profit of $10 (maybe more if you can sell your OCZ for more, nothing if the PSU was actually damaged).

Ha, hey thats a damn good deal for that. I will go to that if for some reason I can no longer boot. Not sure if that thing would have enough wattage to support a quad core? I am going to upgrade EVENTUALLY. Thanks for the tips.

CPU power doesn't run on the 12V rail - no worries there.

^^ Here is the specifications chart for my PSU

My box for the 460 says:

"Minimum 450W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 24A)"
