Ive never heard of Earthwatts. But I can assure you Rosewell is not the place to hang out in the PSU world. I got one. It died thankfully not taking my rig with it. RMA's it.. NOPE.. RMA's it.. DIED after 1 hour. RMA'd it. Dead. REFUND time.

The older Rosewills aren't that good indeed, but they've put out some really nice units lately, including the one recommended here. Check reviews on reputable sites like jonnyguru.com and such.

Earthwatts is a model from Antec, and also received pretty nice reviews.

Jacko87: yours has four 12V rails... that's a totally different situation. As far I know, your PSU puts out more than 40A combines on those 12V rails. More than plenty for your rig.

Deezle98: There are 430W PSUs that push 30A on the 12V rails... that's much more than the 18A the OP mentioned. Again, a totally different situation. Wattage doesn't really mean a thing.

Xx573v3xX_Z28: here I need some proof. Which 150W PSU did you use? Link me to that PSU please, since 150W won't allow you to play games at all. YEs, it'll likely boot, but the moment you put *any* load on that PSU, it'll fail.

I would but theres no stickers on it. but i know for a fact its 150watt 300peak also Im not rewiring after my newest wire up job it looks to clean hahahaha

And it ran fine for 3 months and the psu still works but finally got around to changing it over, I even played a few games in vista without lag

SO it'll run but I don't know how good lol


The psu had very many converters and addons to it for more wires hahahahahah
I think it might be a typo, probably 350W. Theres a 350W Seasonic OEM that would have about 300W peak power, it has two +12V at 17A so its possible. I ran my x850xt off of a 350W crap PSU that was nowhere near as good as the Seasonic one.


Oh and second the Earthwatts 500W, I have it, and not only is it enough, its not undervolted like many PSUs (eg. <12V on the +12) and its quiet! My old Coolermaster was louder than my entire new rig.


Edit: @Xx573v3xX_Z28 How can a 150W PSU have a peak above it's rating...

Without proof, I don't believe it. And also, there simply is no 150W PSU that delivers 300W peak. PSU's simply don't have that huge a discrepancy between load and peak.

Plus, a 150W PSU would not have the proper connections for a modern motherboard (24-pin main, 4-pin or 8-pin CPU, PCI-E, etc).

It wasn't a typo And Come over and rewire it for me, It took me a 4 hour wire job and im not likely to show proof for a stupid thread lol.

Sorry for the anger i need me a smoke.
and Ps girls are SOOOOOO stupid at times.

Anyways IT trully did work..... I had it playing live for speed with a constant 100FPS

... I modded it and used lots of Converters If you checked my earlier post haha.

It said 150 after all the amps and stuff then 300 peak load.

If i could find the sticker i'd show u but its in a landfill... And i know it was a Orange company name thats about all i know


I CAN take a picture of the psu if needed.
