FAQ: Recommended Power Supplies - Page 133

post #1321 of 6730
Very interesting indeed. I think I'm going to play around w/the mushkin PSU's I have 4x 600w to see if I can combine two into one system safely and still have equivelant power to keep the system running w/out any issues. If I can pull that off then I may end up holding off on a larger unit for now until time/finaces allows for such. Either way I am learning from you as always.

Thanks a million,

Which Mushkin units are they?

If you can, make a thread with pictures of the internals so I (we) can properly identify them.

I bought them from one of their clearance day sales. I don't think they are any good though as they are the older 650w units. I asked you about them quite some time ago before the purchase. Oh I forgot I actually sold one on CL, I just remembered LOL.

It was still rapped in the factory plastic when the buyer got it from me so at least knew he was getting a new PSU. Be it good or bad :/

I'll dig them out in a few minutes. I'm cleaning my garage out atm trying to get it all organized so if/when the house purchase is finalized I will have an almost effortless transition into the new Lifestyle

I'm really liking the design of this unit.




I was not aware of a Patent on having a 140mm Fan built into any new PSU. I say Brilliant & wish I had thought of that

Quote:
Finally, our fan is a "Power Cooler" (an Enermax brand) PD1402512H. Although the part number would have you believe this is a 140mm fan, Enermax insists that it's 139mm. Supposedly this is because of a patent someone has on putting 140mm fans inside power supplies.
Edit: the PSU's are XP-650 Active PFC units

The MAXREVO design is actually rather unique, but also very "good" in terms of common sense.

The Primary side of the PSU (where AC voltage & current first comes in) is at the back of the unit (closest to the plug) while the Secondary Side (where DC Voltage & Amperage is generated) is at the front of the unit (closest to the connectors.)

Most units have the Primary side of the PSU on the left and the secondary side on the right.

The Mushkin XP-650 APFC models are decent Topower designs. It puts out power, and does it cleanly. Though in not any shape or form ground breaking.
The caps are Asia X and TMX, they will need to be replaced if you can do that.

Besides turning on and being inside ATX Spec, there is nothing good about them.

Yeah I don't see any thing spectactular about these XP-650's other than the price tag of $20.00 ea NIB when I purchased them

I pulled the lid off one of these units prior to testing to see if I could find any bulging caps. I did not find any bulging caps and they are just as you said. Asia X and TMX

I just paper clip jump started one and I get 5.3x, 11.93 & 3.4xv w/out any thing hooked up to it w/out a load.

I'm going to pull the HX620 from this system I"m typing this msg from and plug the XP650 into this system. I may be able to pull off 1x GTX 460 & 1x GTS 450 on this PSU.

I'll be back shortly w/the results.

5.3V is actually out of spec. Hopefully it stays in spec with some load on it.

The platform requires a 1A load on all the 3 primary rails. That's why.

I am on the system atm right now typing this all while listening/watching this


The system is one of the Destroyer's I have at my disposal w/a Athlon X2 5400+ BE & 2x ASUS GTX 460's installed and 1 Seagate 500G SATA No DVD/CD drive though.

I only have a IDE spare for my bench and it's a real pita plugging that thing in and making the cables not get in the way all the time.

So far all seems OK. I pulled one of these units out of the system my brother is using, M2N32 SLI Deluxe/2x MSI Cyclone GTX 460 768/1x DVD/1x Samsung F3 1TB SATA. I was having issues w/his system locking up and randomly rebooting w/one of these Mushkin units. I have two open and one still NIB un-opened so it's gotta be one of these two open units that was in that system.

Basically I put my Thermal Take Tough Power 700w unit in the M2N32 system a long time ago when the issue was happening and all the problems " magically delicious " disappeared.

So far so good.

The XP-650 is measuring the following volts In Everest while watching that video.

12v = 12.28
5v = 5.083 up to 5.110 but it stays at the lower 5.083 for the most part.
3.3v = 3.376 to 3.392

No f@h or DMM values yet. I just got it up and running and wanted to reply as I said I would.

Edit: This is how the XP-650's holding up so far w/the 2x GTX 460's f@h 865/1730/1840 100% fan 1.075v



Edit 2: IDK why but MSI Afterburner keeps crashing while using it with the ASUS 460's

I have the Seasonic SS-850HT, the OEM version of the M12D. I've only had this rig up and running a few days, but something has already caught my eye. The 3.3v line is reading 3.39-3.41, but stays pegged at 3.41 while under load(folding). Is this of any concern or is this normal? I know software readings are in no way accurate sometimes, but it is somewhat alarming to me. Didn't want to make a thread just for such a simple question, apologize if you'd rather not have questions like this in the thread.
