That PSU won't work for you. From your motherboard's manufacturer's website:

The OCZ does NOT have both 8-pin AND 4-pin.

This one does:

PS Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V $159.00

Also, you can't beat the quality of the PC Power & Cooling.

OMG thanks a million,with all the new PSU`s and the fact this is my first build in almost 2years its hard for me to catch up on everything ,been so into MOBO`s,Memory,video cards- Oc`ing...

So of course since you sent me to that PSU the 620W will be good enough?

Also im building a 2ed system will that OCZ PSU be good, i was also looking at the Antec Trio2 650W?which one is better?

Asus P5B-DX-i think, still unsure,or P5b-E or GIGA DS3)
E6600--light OC around 3.0 with air,if not no biggie-
3 W.D HDD
Quadro FX 1500
2G of some memory Corsair,OCZ--still stuck on this issue,PC800.5400?looking for a stable match between,OC-MOBO-RAM

Anyway you saved me with that PSU

Peace

The PC Power & Cooling will definately be good for the Dual Xeon rig. Plenty power. It's a highly reliable PSU and rock solid. It's hard to find a better one.

For the other rig, I'd say the OCZ is indeed a good pick. The 600W version probably is enough already, but for $115 after MIR, the 700W GameXStream is a good pick. It's a good PSU, just lacking the proper connections for the Dual Xeon rig. For the Core 2 Duo rig, it's plenty powerful enough. I have the FSP Epsilon 700W for my rig, and the OCZ is identical (built by FSP). See what it powers for me (E6600, dual X1900's, 4 WD Hard drives)

Regarding RAM, depending how much you're willing to spend. I'd recommend these kits, depending on budget:
- low end: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) $209.99
- mid range: BUFFALO Firestix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) $244.99
- high end: Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) $307.99 - $25 MIR

given that you don't plan to overclock too much, I'd say either should do fine. The Buffalo kit is nice, since it does have the nice Micron D9's and it's not too expensive. In either case, I do recommend at least DDR2 800 (especially since the cheapest kit I recommend is not much more expensive than DDR2 533 or DDR2 667)

Regarding your motherboard choice: If you plan to run those hard drives in RAID... Do NOT get the Gigabyte DS3. The DS3 only supports RAID on a secondary controller over the PCI bus, limited to 2 drives in RAID0, RAID1, or JBOD. Somehow I am guessing you plan RAID5. The P5B-E and the P5B Deluxe would work just fine for you.

You know its so funny how so many people have different options on the same issue,most everywhere im looking for memory to OC people talk about,OCZ XTC,GILL,Patriot,Mushkin,Corsair etc you get the point,but none were on your list!!Go figure

Based on the ## of posts and overall knowledge im going to STRONGLY consider the mid-highend memory you suggest!!But let me ask you will i have to do anything special out the box, timming wise with the memory(P5B-DX-MOBO), i dont plan to OC for a few weeks!!And based on what you said i guess i`ll have no problem getting to 3-3.2G!

After you told me about the 24/8/4 pin connecters i went all over the place looking arond,since im placing my whole order from zipzoom i tryed to find a PSU from there and came up with the TOUGHPOWER 700W,but i think im going with the PC Power & Cooling,

are these the same from your link?
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...7;20TECHNOLOGY
A bit cheeper

I know this a PSU section and thanks for your time with the links and info but i must ask 1 last question, Would the Samsung FB 667 memory be the most stable memory i can get for my Xeon`s!!??

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147011

Thanks again ,

and after your response or anyone elses i will move the memory topic to the proper section

You can actually get 4 Pin to 8 EPS connectors that work just aswel

However for an actuall Server its best to have all those features already incorperated.

For that specific motherboard he needs BOTH and 8-pin and 4-pin connector A feature that the Silencer has.

Oh I see. Well I know my PSU has 2...However th other 4 pin is to create a 24Pin ATX Connector.
post #9 of 9
Yeah, and he needs the full 24-pins also. Here is a diagram of the Silencer's connectors, from top to botton: 8-pin, 4-pin, 24-pin and two 6-pin PCI-E:


Regarding memory for the Xeon rig, yes, I would consider that Samsung, or otherwise this Kingston stick. I am not too experienced with Server RAM, but I know Kingston has a solid position in that market, and probably not without reason.

And finally, I am retracting my recommendation for the Buffalo kit. The one I linked is the one with CAS5, which is not as good as the one with CAS4, which I wrongly thought it was. My apologies. And regarding the Crucial; it's specifically the DDR2 1000 kit I recommend, since that has the Micron d9's.
