Possibly need a new power supply? Help - Page 2

post #11 of 24
yes, but a 450-500 unit from them would be plenty unless you plan to upgrade

How many watts do hard drives take up?

It's severe overkill and it's not a particularly brilliant unit... you'll be better off with a lower output, higher quality one.. check out the Seasonic G Series and the Rosewill Capstone units, they're excellent and currently very well priced at newegg.

Which one would you pick out of these?

I think its pulling to much power (660 ). Your psu can't take it. Get a good 650w from Corsair or Silverstone. Bronze or above.

Similar thing happened to me. I can't remember all the signs but my power supply died under high GPU stress. I upgraded to a GOOD 750Watt PSU and it solved my issues. I vote for the PSU as well.

As stated above, the G Series or the Capstone, but again, you don't need anything near to 600W... the 450W versions of either of these units would be more than plenty. wink.gif

10-15W at spin up, and around 4-8W under normal operation.

The only problem is everyone reporting that the PSUs die a lot

I'm afraid I don't understand, please elaborate (everyone who, what PSUs, etc).
