Ultra X3's 2000W Modular PSU - Page 4

post #31 of 72
Just plain dumb. is not the whole Idea to make thing that are less power hungry than there predecessors I though the C2D was an example of this concept less power draw = less heat = better OC would be my logic...guess it really comes down to my _____ is bigger then your _____ so you need to buy mine.

Sorry I don't think I will ever buy anything higher than my 750W

about the housing circuits (in the U.S.) most washer, driers and things like that run on a 220/240 supply with two 30 amp breakers, most of the time. and most rooms in a normal house each use a 20 amp breaker, not 15 amp. the only rooms that normally use 15amp breakers are bathrooms, laundry rooms, storage closets and small rooms like that. but offices, living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and things like that use at least a 20 amp breaker. so and 2000 watt PSU should be ok on a normal circuit, but anything over that, probably not. also, if you need a 2k PSU, and the room your computer is in only has a 15 amp breaker, you can just replace it with a 20 or 25 amp breaker. just make sure the total of amps of your breakers in your fuse panel don't exceed the house supply. IE, most homes have a 200amp breaker panel. if all you breakers only add up to say...190 amps, since most homes don't utilize all slots and 200 amps of the panel, then you could switch a 15 out for a 20 or 30 amp breaker.

doesnt the wiring also have to be able to hold 20 amps thou... if the contractor used sub-standard wiring and the breaker doesnt trip at the 15 amp to protect it, it will prob melt the wiring and cause a fire... lol im in the army and live in the on post barracks, sooo im pretty sure ill have alot of mad ppl if i burn down the barracks.. lmao.. hell it was built by contractors looking to save a buck or two


EDIT: ive seen overloads cause fires in vehicles before

That's what I'm talking about. It's not about the circuit breakers, it's also the wiring.

I think this thing would fry my house, with its ancient wiring (I live in a 100 year old house with wiring about half that old), scary.
