My uber Conroe build.-Up and running.- - Page 9

post #81 of 310

I'm thinking about it... Thing is DX10 cards take twice as much power as a X1900xtx (that's a lot of power!), and if they come in crossfire... 2 DX10 cards will need as much power as 4 x1900 cards. Can the armor fit 2 PSUs?

Twice as much?? Where'd you get that from? I have not seen any DX10 cards on the market, and any specs coming out now are likely based on early prototypes. If anything, I expect the power draw to be less, since the cores will be based on smaller technology. If true, however, Phase becomes mandatory, since even water will not keep it cool (although you can brew a nice cup of tea with the water from your watercooled rig). Logic would already lead to the conclusion that this is not true.

But, the ones I mentioned are each more powerful (based on current, and the Enermax might have a disadvantage because the way the rails are configured) than the PC Power & Cooling 1KW.

Yeah it was just some rumors on other forums, logic does point to the opposite. I might go for the 900w.

Now what I'm trying to figure out is why I'm buying X1900CF when X1950CF is coming out so soon.

Also, it's considerably smaller (170mm long instead of 230mm for the PC Power & Cooling - that's more than 2 inches shorter), and cheaper at $349.99 on Newegg (unfortunately out of stock right now):

Also, consider the 750W PC Power & Cooling for $199. A single 12V rails boasting a thundering 60A (just 6A less than the 1KW PSU they have). And, at a length of 180mm, it's 2 inches shorter than the 1KW beast.

And finally, this bomb also looks pretty darn good! Combined non-modular (including 2 PCI-E, 3 SATA, and 3 Molex connectors) and modular (for about a million other connectors). Unfortunately, just 10mm shorter (or less than 1/2 inch) than the PC Power & Cooling 1KW PSU. 75A over five 12V rails. The only issue I have with it is that it's designed with dual CPUs in mind, thus there are two rails dedicated for two CPUs, total 34A (new EPS12V standard) and three other rails for all the rest, total 41A.

can be bought here for $339.99: http://www.axiontech.com/prdt.php?it...ca7e0ecd1d7cf5

PC Power & Cooling really needs to drop prices on their 1KW giant.. competition is real, and cheaper
I really like that 750 watt PC Power and Cooling PSU. However, I could not find it anywhere online....

You can order it right off the link I gave there, but I think it'll be available through the retail channels pretty soon also.

I guess I'll use my current x1900xtx until x1950 comes out... dunno what card I'll give my brother.

Unless 2 X1900 in CF can run any game at 2560x1600 max settings at 60FPS (except oblivion). Can they?

Pro for sure

Home does not support dual core CPUs! And I think MCE is based off home, and thus does not support dual core CPUs either
