SATA and PCI-E power supply question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am going to use the old enermax 350w for upgrade components but it doesn't have sata and pci-e power connector. Does this mean I have to buy a new one?

hi.

That depends upon what hardware you intend to push with the PSU.

If the ratings can handle your components, then there are molex-to-PCI-E connectors.

Sorry... but I really think that you should consider a new PSU.

350 isn't really much anymore when you start getting into decently ranged products, even the 6600 series graphics cards require more. For 50 bucks you could grab a Coolermaster Extreme Power 500watt which i HIGHLY suggest, just got one myself, its awesome!

Most likely, this system will pass to kids. I saw this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817190011
Is this OK for 1 year timeframe?

That unit has good rail specs.
Some of the reviews make me wonder a bit about it though.

I am not sure that you can replace Dell power supply with that Enermax one. The instant when you apply you power with a Dell non-standard PSU one with a Dell motherboard both of PSU and mobo will be destroy the moment you apply power. Dell PSU and motherboard might look they are ATX equipment but they are not!

Even though you should get a new power supply, I'll tell you this: You will be able to use that PSU with SATA hard drives, because SATA hard drives have both Molex AND SATA power connections. You only need to use one.

Not all SATA HDDs have both.

This isn't for Dell. This uint is try-out uint. Most likely, I pass it to kids.

Really? I thought they did. *Imaginary REP+*

Well, just make sure to check your HDD if you do end up buying a power supply like that
