am I overloading my motherboard?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
all my hardware info is here

I'm running 3 80mm fans, the cpu fan, 2 ddr3 sticks, 2 5670's (no direct psu connectors), and a 1090T on the board, powered just from the 20+4 connection.

my psu is a 530w bequiet with 18 amp on 2 12v rails, only 4 molex though so got another 3 fans and the cases lighting running off that, with 1 extention going to the HDD.

I'm sure i'm only clocking 450w's max but am i running too much off the mobo?

i dont have any spare molex to 3pin + the molex rail is pretty stacked already, any ideas?

You're not overloading your motherboards. Motherboards are designed to provide power to all devices that are connected to them.

This is correct.

You're fine. You're on a motherboard whose direct variant (the MA790XT-UD4P) I have run with a 1055T, 2 cards in (unofficial) SLI, 4 DDR3 DIMMs, sound card, and plenty of USB & firewire connections.

BeQuiet PSUs are also usually good, though I think it'd depend on the model. A good quality 530W should have no problem handling two 5670s.
