For the safety of your system (and its stability), I recommend no longer using it. For people like you and me, there's never a good reason to use two PSUs in one system.

Why won't you stop using it? Maybe I should start using one. What do you think?

Brother, the 800W Odin GT is extreme overkill as it is. You would even have enough power with a quality 550W power supply.

Stop using it.

3 years old or not, it's still way more than enough for powering a system that only has one 580 in it.

Hell, I bet it's still more than enough if it had 2.


(by the way, it's better to think of it as a decent 750W unit because its +12V is 744W which is exactly what many high quality 750W power supplies have)

I Have a Wattmeter and It maxed out at 391 Watt (included the LCD screen). So maybe it's indeed an overkill... And I could use the slot the thermaltake is occupying

391W? That means the system pulled about 330W from the power supply.

that means a big big overkill. maybe even bigger than the GTX 580 . It even means that before I bought the 580gtx, the odin GT was an über overkill And still my radeon X1950 pro died because of a circuit burn....
