PSU questions.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After trying to overclock my machine i am running into some issues with stablility. My machine boots at 3.0 gigs using a 11/273 with a vcore of 1.31 but wont pass a stress test. I think it is my Xion 450w power supply causing the problems. My Gpu says it requires 425w alone and from what i've heard my PSu is just a jazzed up 350w???? could this be the cause of all my headaches??

Thanks in advance

It's possible your PSU is acting up, but the problem is the crappy brand not the 450W. Your video card is incapable of consuming more than 75W as only 75W can be provided through the PCIe slot, and the x1650 Pro doesn't have any additional 6 or 8 pin connectors. There's no way your system needs more than 350W much less 450W.

Your psu is not the greatest since it came with your case?

450w @ 18amps (my old 305w had 22amps)
18amps is enough for it to sort of run but look into a psu upgrade.

Your psu is the culprit,now go and buy a GOOD QUALITY psu and never worry about it again!
get a good 600+W psu and you'll be good to go for quite some time(if the next gen cards are not VERY power hungry).

The next gen cards will probably put a world of hurt on people with older PSU's. The 8800GTX, I know, requires two six pin connectors, alone. Most modular PSU's now have eight pin connectors outbound off the PSU modular, so that'll help.

But bottom line for the OP, replace your PSU, irregardless of whether it's causing a problem or not, this should be done.

If it fixes the problem, that's great news. If not, then we'll continue to help you until you get it working right. =]

How true
The 9800GX2 and the 9800GTX will require a 6pin and a 8pin connection. I'm already looking ahead to see what's out there.
