Decent PSU for mild OC + midrange GFX. This one? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Silverstone makes very nice PSUs... and that Element is good unit. 500W, and high amps on the 12V rails (35A). Can't go wrong with it.

Not bad on the 12V and 3.3V rails, but your 5V rails is too low (almost dropping below the 5% threshold, which is too lenient anyways). I don't think it's too big a deal, but it does seem to indicate your PSU is under a bit of stress.

PS: your PSU delivers 27A on the 12V rails, which is the limit recommended for an 8800GTS.

Even worse... but in that case, it might be a dodgy sensor.
