Yea I'd imagine that more than enough watts is better than 100w less than enough. confused.gif

Yeah I am waiting for BD so I will probably use the 950w when I change over.

I know your psu is based off of Seasonic, and I'm gonna put my neck on the guioteen and say it's an S12II, even if I haven't seen the insides it would be farily safe to say that it was based off the s12II platform.


I think your fine, unless BD uses like 200w extra watt's you should worry.

He's running 2 5830s. He ought to switch to that 950w ASAP, there's no reason not too if it's just sitting around. While his PSU may not be in danger of exploding I don't see the point in using a PSU that's atleast 15% less than what is recommended.

Here's a review of his PSU.

Here's a review of his PSU.
It's not going to explode, that platform has alot more overhead then you think. Want to know an inside secret? Just because it says it's 520's doesn't mean it's not based off a higher wattage platform, which it is with the S12II. Being rated at continuous 520w just means theres a possiblity that the OCP is more strict, doesn't mean it nesseccarily is as you can see in various seasonic psu's which greatly go over their rated continuous. It's not going to wear out, it's not going to break, and it's not harming his computer. The S12II is one of the best lines of psu's you can get. If it wasn't enough it would shut off, so please sit down and shut up.

Also I see no charts on that Review, nor do I see where they are getting their values. If they are HWmonitoring those voltage readings then that article has no worth at all. Anadatech is a respected site but that doesn't mean they are qualified to judge a psu, as you not only need the knowledge and experience for them but the correct equipment

I think Shinji2k said it pretty well.

First off, I would like to specify what makes a good PSU review:

Load testing using a special purpose ATE or a custom built resistor or MOSFET load tester.
Ripple and noise measurements.
Testing above room temperature, preferably 40-50C.
Commentary on build quality and detailed analysis of components used.


A bad PSU review will include:

Testing at room temperature.
Loading with a computer in lieu of a load tester.
Voltage measurements using a multimeter or worse, software (without the use of a load tester).
Anything missing from the list of what makes a good review.

No reason to be rude and tell me to sit down and shut up.

I said it wasn't going to explode, maybe read my post before trying to tear it apart.

I posted the review because you asked for internals of the PSU. Don't worry I won't bother trying to help again.

Sorry but you're exhibiting what I call the alarmist attitude. The same reasoning behind your post is the reasoning that people buy 1000w psu's for their $500 HTPC's. I seem to cringe whenever I read it so I'm sorry I kinda overreacted.

Edit: I also want to say I overracted to that review, but in this forum, reviews aren't always very good. Some are, and we've outlined the sites who do a good job, but your average Joe reviews are not something you should post up.

Thanks for the apology but I don't think I'm being alarmist. I didn't say that he ought to go out and buy a beefier PSU immediately but just that because he has one "just sitting around" he has no reason not to switch to it. Maybe the "ASAP" made it seem alarmist, how about "as soon as convenient" rather than putting it off until he upgrades to BD which is what I meant.

Actually that bold on the "2" was it, try not to use bold. I knew he had two cards in his system. I knew it the first time he posted, I also know that psu is fairly capable of handling it.

I'd imagine that Rosewil would be fine, Jonny Guru gave the 850w a review and it did well. But it's got 2 fans and one is an 80mm, I bet that thing is noisy.

Zippyduda( I try to only bold for names)

Yes, if memory serves me correct that PSU is good and plenty for your system.
