Modular power supplies should have a star next to them.

The first post hasn't been updated in quite some time. Is there another thread on here I can peek at?

Above is my HKC 7630W, it's a rare brand, I've not heard of it b4, but my supplier gave it to me for a good price, wasn't looknig for anything fancy, but it's quite nice. It's shiny, you simply connect the cables u desire, comes with a pouch with all the cables and is 630W, not the 500W I originally needed!



Works good, does the job, but anyone of it being good, reliable n stuff? It was about 50-60 Euros.

HKC is the manufacturer: http://www.hpcelec.com/showPro.asp?ArticleID=358#. They are well known in China for selling junk. With only 30A on the 12V, you can at best call this a 400W PSU. That is only if it can even do that.

I would have to agree with you.

Hm....my GFX card requires a 450W minimum to operate, but still works, so I don't think it's running that low.
But exactly how did u deduce only 400W from 30A. I knw ok P=VI and all to get the Watts, but are you talking about the individual sections that should be higher, and which one the GFX card uses? Soory, but I ain't eactly very knowldgeable wen it comes to PSUs.

Had a look at Antec's PSU and I see even the 500W NeoPower has more than 15A per 12V so like 30A+...do you believe this is affecting the performance of GFX card in anyway?
Antec's calculator gives me 483W figure for my power consumption, and that's like with full utilization and all, probably like when playing a game.

Your system probably draws 250W max if everything is at stock clocks. A 9600gt draws 70W at most. 483W is ridiculous and that is the exact reason you should take these online calculators with a grain of salt.

There are three main rails in a PSU: 3.3V, 5V and 12V. Modern computers are 12V heavy. That means that a normal setup only uses a few amps on both the 3.3V and 5V. The CPU and GPU both run on 12V and are the most power hungry. When manufacturers go to rate their PSUs, they should be rated with a modern 12V heavy system in mind. In most good, modern PSUs the 3.3V and 5V rail shouldn't account for much mroe than ~50W of the total rating. For example, the Corsair cx400 has 30A on the 12V. 30A of 12V is 360W. Add ~50W to 360W and you come to the ~400W figure. That is based on realistic rail usage. Older computers were more 5V heavy. PSUs with large 3.3V and 5V capacity compared to the 12V are intended for older computers where the CPU was run on 5V. If a modern PSU is sold with a layout like that it means they are trying to inflate their overall wattage since very little of the 3.3V and 5V rails will be used.

And, I am not sure what you mean by this:

The NeoPower 500W has 38A combined on the 12V. That 38A goes to wherever it is needed, up to the 17A limit for each rail. 17A on a rail is more than enough to power any video card that a 500W PSU is intended to run. And to be confusing, even though these Antecs are labeled as multi-rail units they are in fact a single rail. The rails have been joined together, to put it simply, to make one larger 38A rail.
