I can't decide between a few powersupplies - Page 3

post #21 of 28

Wait....

 

Facepalm. I missed the red circle.

 

Question: why would there be a capacitor right there? What's it connected to? How is it connected?

It's a computer!

They do it to "clean up" the power going to specific components like the graphics cards. Silverstone uses them on their Evolution line of power supplies.

Sliverstone has this to say about them.
"To reduce electrical whine/buzz associated with high performance graphics card’s dynamic loading changes, 2200uF capacitors are attached to PCI-E connectors. This design also helps to maintain better voltage stability and improve ripple & noise performance. "

Haha yeah exactly. Lutro0 has posted that he just cuts them off when he is sleeving psu's. Which I suppose I could do, but I would rather not.

these are for filtering .. for sure thumb.gif
post #26 of 28
of course the last pic .. is not for evga


so evga should have those filtering, since they are new PSUs

So the evga filters should be like this? (This is the Super Flower 750 watt).



I don't remember where it was but I remember reading someone saying that his 1300 watt unit from evga had caps on the wires when he was taking the cables apart for sleeving. There is for sure a very noticeable bulge that I'm seeing which looks just like a capacitor on the 6 pin power cables.

You can see it on the cables with the red connectors.

(This is from Techpowerup's review of the Super Flower 750 leadex psu)

You can also see the outline of one the cpu 8 pin.
