(noob) underpowered PSU issues ? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
This is my PSU Antec Earthwatts 500
It seems to be a pretty good one (by the time)

What's then your opinion ? Go or no go for a new PSU ?

I'm not sure to understand well, There was 2 plugs on the GTX 560, and I have (of course) plugged them (6 pins if i remember well yes). Did i do a mistake ?

I have had clients with random HP's and Dell's they would do "upgrades" and never change out the power supply and it would pop and you smell burnt wires, and usually will pop the gold lead on the motherboard if you arent lucky. Basically using a 5 year old PSU to power todays technology is never a good idea.

No, sounds fine. That PSU should be fine

nope no mistake, you did do it correctly. Both 6 pins should be plugged in to the power. thumb.gif
