CPU Requiring And More Voltage!!! - Page 3

At maximum rated power outage this PSU is rated to maintain 30 Amps on the dual +12V Rails.

Ripple and noise are very manageable as well. Why anyone would advise a 700 Watt PSU for this system is beyond me. One can buy a 700Watt PSU when the power is needed and in this case it is definitely not needed in my opinion.

I own that PSU, I recommend it to anyone here that has system like mine or want to dual boot PSU's

Which review was that? I'm curious 'cuz I've got one on the way.

I'm thinking future upgrades are always a possibility, so why not a 700 watter? I don't know about ripple and noise

No, a 300Watt PSU would not be desirable for that specified system. One needs to consider is true wattage opposed to peak wattage though as many end users see the big number and think that is what they are getting. I would personally be surprised if that RAIDMAX could output 475W of clean power during 3 hours of gaming. Take a look at your RAIDMAX's rails. 18A on +12V RAIL #1 and 16A on +12V RAIL #2. That says quite a bit right there.

I would purchase the PSU in the future when you purchase the "Future" System. Very likely the prices will fall and you can sell this PSU with this system when you make the move. This system is still valuable. If you decide to go with a very high output PSU right now, just be certain to research well and get a good PSU for your money.

Another name on my no-go list is OCZ, yet another memory module manufacturer that has taken to producing power supplies. Alas, its new PSUs (actually manufactured by FSP Group) have disappointed me with their noisiness and not very stable voltages. As I had already seen in my tests of the FSP Epsilon series, power supplies based on that platform can be very quiet at work.

The +12V Rails are maxed out at 18A and with a high end video card I would not advise this PSU for long session gaming personally.

The box says that rail 1 has 20A and the second rail has 18A. I think Newegg's info is wrong, or it's not the same exact model (That one says "Volcano" and mine says "Modular" on the box).

Edit: But whatever, my generic PSU is already doing better than my raidmax, so it looks like there's my problem.

You might find that in time your generic PSU will not pull the load either. My advice is to research your PSU very well, as well as you do your CPU

Well what i mean is that since the raidmax couldn't do Prime95 with 1.625 vCore but the generic one can (for now), that means that the raidmax has a problem, right? I just wanna diagnose this properly so i don't end up wasting more money....

Yes, you are very likely correct and that is the method to diagnose issues. A testbed analysis.
