Just bought a new computer, need help concerning the PSU

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I bought a new computer today, and some told me that the PSU that I bought just wont do it, since it has only one +12v rail. I'm afraid the PSU will pop my entire computer, so any help here would be appriciated.

The PSU is more than adequate for the system - the person whom told you that should read up a bit more on PSU's - just because its a single rail design doesn't mean it cant handle your setup.

You could have easily gotten away with a 500W PSU, so that 620W will be more than overkill.

It will work fine. The amount of rails means nothing by itself.

I have that exact PSU in my sig rig, and it is way more than enough. I should have enough headroom to SLI another 560, and I am going to be bumping my ram to 8gb soon. No worries for you.

48 amps will be more than enough. You do not have anything that will be pulling that much power.

Don't worry as everybody else mentioned. You will be fine. As previously mentioned, number of rails itself really doesn't matter. And the 48 amps will be more than adequate. It will handle it. Game on!

You'll be fine. I only run a 600w PSU and I run about 7-8 fans, same RAM, almost same Mobo, same RAM, and same CPU along with my other sig rig parts and I've never had a single issue, which I originally ran it all on a 500w RocketFish psu but I got a good deal on this 600w so don't worry man.
