Nothing really wrong with the psu, it's design isn't the best for this application is all. You'd most likely be fine, but it's cutting it a little close .

I have a psu that is a single 12 volt rail rated at 84 amps I use for benching my 9370. Silver efficeincy rating.

this use to be a problem years ago and didnt know it still was - and not questioning your knowledge but where does it state that you need xyz for a 9370, i am interested thumb.gif

Got what you meant but what I was asking was not a show in benchmarks, more so, from Amd, telling you must have a xyz psu with a single rail.

And yes we builders have to be aware of wattage for overall build but how many nubies would think single rail?

Knowing he has a COUGAR CMX 1000w - a 1000 watt - do you see where i'm coming from? No! Surrey UK biggrin.gif

Most would go 1000watt - thats ok! thumb.gif
