Huntkey 700W APFC/ GTX 660 Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I'm looking to replace my old 8600 series card with a Geforce GTX 660. My main concerns are about the reliability of my PSU to handle the card as the Huntkey brand has a dodgy reputation. I think it's a decent power supply for a Huntkey though. My PC specs are:
Intel DQ45CB motherboard
C2Q9550@2.8 ghz
4 GB DDR 2 RAM

and the power supply is
Huntkey Max 700W APFC
Watts: 700W (600 continuous)
+12 Volt continuous current rating of at least 36 Amps
Cooling: 1 x 120mm Fan
Molex Connectors: 4
SATA Connectors: 3
PCI-E Connectors: 1 x 6+2 Pin
dual & four +12V rails
Product Code: HK700-52PP

This particular unit does seem reliable, however. I also read a couple of Russian reviews that rated it pretty solid. Please can I get a definitve answer as to whether this PSU will handle the GTX 660 and comment on how the GFX card will sit with the rest of my rig. The specific GTX660 is a Gigabyte Windforce OC with 2GB ram.

Regards.

Its a really low budget psu but it will do fine for the hardware you have. GTX 660 is a very power efficient card compared to the previous generation ones, TDP is only 140W and it requires a single pcie 6pin power connector.Total power consumption of a modern system with a GTX 660 is around 300W.

I dont know what resolution you plan in playing games at, or what games you plan to play, my buddy has the same CPU with a gtx 460 1gb and seems to play most came extreamly well at Max except for bf3 which his setup didnt like lol

But you should be fine with gtx660 and should be able to Max everything, but if you can afford to buy a gtx660, you should be able to buy a decent branded psu, 500-600watt psu arnt overly expensive .

The windforce cooler works amazing I had one on a 6970 I used to own and two of my friends have that cooler on there 7970s

What's wrong with Huntkey?


@OP, you'll be fine, that's ~250W system at full load.

never heard of them, and going from what the op says about them "Huntkey brand has a dodgy reputation", me personally with that statement i wouldn't trust them and a bad psu potentially can fry your whole rig , a risk i wouldn't want to take, psu is the one part i wouldn't cheap out on, being a electrician ive seen what bad transformers can do thumb.gif

But like i said ive never heard of that brand, for all i know it can be a perfectly good psu, i was just going be what the op was saying.

Huntkey is an OEM/ODM, a quite large one actually.... and while they do sell a lot of low end, trashy stuff, they do make and sell excellent units also. wink.gif.. Huntkey shouldn't be automatically dismissed.

Thanks for your replies guys. Looks like I'll be sticking with the HuntKey.
