Phaedrus Quick'n'Dirty PSU calculator - Page 5

post #41 of 337
Guides like this is why I love this site. I have a new graphics card on the way (in sig. yes old, lol, but just fine for my board requirements and processor) and thanks to Phaedrus, I almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Still kind of weird, yet relieving that all I'll need is basically under 400w (even as low as 350w!). I currently have a generic 300w that came with the case, but don't plan on putting the new card in until I upgrade. I'm thinking the Antec Earthwatts 380D should be good.

Xigmatek is usually Channel Well, maybe a DSA Bronze? So it should, yeah.

This one (NRP-PC402) looks to be HEC actually.

Ah.It would be halfway decent, if it weren't for the fact that it totally fails on ripple suppression. Apparently HEC don't know how to design Pi filters. But it looks like HEC's knock-off of CWT DSA/SeaSonic S12/etc.

Have installed many Earthwatts 380W for clients when the PSU in their older workstations fail. In fact it is our office standby for low output PSU. Good choice!

And Phaedrus, thanks for the guide!
At long last...

Just as long as you understand the RX1000AE is an 80PLUS Standard unit based on the dated Andyson E series.


Ah, Raidmax. Even when you win, you fail.

I knew that going in. I read all the reviews, I did my research. I had a limited budget, and idk if you remember, but I need it to run 2 5970s, so It should be able to do that just fine. It was either get a really good 850w unit, or a decent 1000w unit. I went for the 1kw incase the 7990 is reason for upgrade
