Will PSU support my setup?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am planning to salvage old parts for a system for my family to play on and use, the heaviest use will be starcraft play, I was wondering if the Power supply will be sufficient as my spare Video Card says it requires 600 watt psu. The Power supply is a 500 earth watts. supply, not sure of the exact model, I will try to find it.

The specs would be as follows, would it run with this psu?

AMD 1055T X6 2.8Ghz stock
Coolit ECO CLC
8GB Ripjaws 1600 Memory 2x4gb sticks
1 TB WD Blue 7200rpm
MSI 560 Twin frozer 2 (says needs 600+watt supply)
5 case fans

You dont need a new PSU unless the old one is crap and the Antec Earthwatts is not crap but take a photos of it if you can

You should be fine unless its a bad PSU. IIts rare that you need more than 400 watt.
The 560 would never require 600+. Its just a ultra save statement. I can run a Gtx 570 and i7 overclocked on a 550 watt psu without problems.

yep you´re fine. 500 W is enough. Never had a Antec PSU but I think its good enough to deliver the power.

That PSU is made by FSP and they and very up and down some of them range from trash to great

Its is rather old PSU reviews are from 2007 and 2008 so i think you sould change the PSU if you can

Antec Basiq 500w

Antec has branded and placed the Basiq 500w absolutely perfectly in relation to what the user gets as it is basic. Starting with the build quality and its steel gray punched metal housing to its component selection everything is basic enough to get the job done but without any flare or real stand out moments. The closest thing the unit could call a standout moment would be its efficiency which peaked at 82% at 120v. However, like many newer FSP based units it is still plagued by poor DC output quality as it hit the ATX12v limit of 50mV on the 3.3v rail at full load. Additionally, the transient response was passable but not what we would call standout. None of these facts though really doomed this unit to failure as up until the full load test at 100v it was still running and in specification, if just barely. It was the unit’s inability to run the full load test for more than a few moments that took the shine the unit was developing and turned it steel gray. At the end of the day the Antec Basiq 500w is not the worst power supply in the roundup or the worst choice a user could make at $50 (at time of purchase the unit was $50 currently however it is $69.99) but it certainly is not an award winning power supply or one worth $70.

Are there any big issues if I use it for now? will it blow or damage hardware?

I cant say for sure

Its not the worst PSU there is but its not a new PSU anymore so if you can you might want to look at a new PSU

5 to 6 years if you had it for that long then you sould not feel bad about buying a new PSU as 5-6 years are a very long time for a PSU

A good quality PSU has a warranty of around 5 years, and it's what powers all the hardware.

Keep in mind that a faulty PSU might fry all of your hardware tongue.gif
