I would not object to a Silverstone Olympia OP 800
myself. 800 W with a 66 A +12V rail. Unfortunately, I do not have the $200 I would need to get it. I seriously doubt that there would be a problem providing enough power to my Crossfires that way.
In other news, I am looking for some help regards my USB ports. I thought the USB hub in my monitor was going, so I bought an external. Again, the hub will periodically turn itself off and need to reboot. It is getting infuriating! So I went to device manager and looked into all of my USB ports. The all provide up to 500 mA of power. I looked into my devices.
Plugged into the motherboard:
7-port Belkin USB hub, 0 mA
APC Battery Backup, 24 mA
Patriot Razzo Thumbdrive, 200 mA
Into the 7-port Belkin USB hub:
UPEK Biometric reader, 100 mA
Microsoft Office Keyboard, 100 mA
Logitech G5, 98 mA
I also have a Microsoft VX-1000 webcam. That draws 500 mA, which is the limit of any USB port. I figured this is what causes the hub(s) to spontaneously shut off (over draw of current) but they seem to do it even without it plugged in. The ports on the motherboard are not going I hope? Anyone have an alternative suggestion as to what is happening?
