CIT 700w - i5 compatible?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

My friend just went and bought a 700w CIT power supply to try and fix his currently dead computer, but it turned out that it never fixed the issue so the problem either lies with the motherboard, processor or ram since he stripped it down to that minimal setup and it still aint working. It briefly comes on for a second or two and instantly shuts itself off.

Now that we have eliminated the other hardware and boiled it down to the board, cpu or ram we have been discussing upgrades and he is tempted to get an overclocked bundle from scan.co.uk ( overclocked to 4.5ghz ) with 1600mhz DDR3 and a Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 motherboard.

My question is basically will his newly bought power supply have enough juice for this new i5 system, he's only running an 8500GT graphics card. I have the feeling that people are going to recommend a more solid power supply, but is this likely to work without failing since he is using a low end graphics card?

Thanks guys

I see no reason it wouldn't "work" I most cetainly can tell you it wont put out 700w...maybe 500 at most.

The 2500k has a relatively love power consumption. His result may vary on the overclock though. 4.5 is quite common and I believe those come with a CM 212+.

I go back on what I said a bit... is hes going to invest that much cash in a system why not get a better PSU ? And it looks like it s a AC 13 cooler ( not so great IMO). You two should be able to overlcock it yourselves and get him a better PSU

Why just the 8500gt ?

because he is not a gamer, he is a music producer and doesnt require a high end graphics card. So you think this PSU aint gonna cut it then?

It would cut it yes in some ways but if any programs are CPU intensive then itncould be iffy. I'm not very knowledgeable on what music programs require beyond being CPU intensive. I figured maybe he was an artist of some sorts. Since we are dealing with expensive hardware its hard for me to say " Yeah it will be OK" with the CPU being the only big power draw on the system it should be OK. But its my part to always be more safe than sorry smile.gif. He could get away with a 400-450w good psu for 50 pounds.
