Tagan BZ 1100 PSU compatibility question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm in a little bit of a tiz and pannic because I have just oerdered a chassis and a Tagan TG1100-BZ 1100W SLI Crossfire Modular PSU Power Supply, but I have just been to NVIDIA and I found a compatibility list and my PSU is within this list as being problematic and will not work with a single GX2 9800.

Please take a look at the list here and tell me if this is fuged and I should cancel the PSU and get one which is compatible. The thing I don't understand they are selling these are SLI compatible but this list says otherwise. To make matter wose NVIDA are contradicting themselves, because they are say yes in one paragraph and then no in another and then in the table of PSU they are sating it's not compatible with a single GX2 9800.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce...wr_supply.html

So you can see my confusion.

HELP please.

Where's the list, what's the reason?

Might be that the connectors need trimmed to fit the GX2 adapter, that's all.

The tagan BZ1100 is certified for dual 8800GTX's:
http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_build_psu.html

imo, it should thus be able to run a SINGLE 9800GX2.

However, TAGAN is NOT my favorite PSU brand by a long shot. I'd cancel it and get a better one.

A PSU to consider is the Corsair HX1000, which is certified for SLI-ed 9800GX2's (!)

Oh... saw the list now... it's just a small cable issue, and you'll need an adapter. Should not be a big deal. As nVidia stated, they're working on it (might be resolved already)

How about ThermalTake for a PSU?
post #5 of 10
Good pick also. If you plan NEVER to SLI your 8800GT2, the 850W Toughpower is very nice. If you DO plan SLI, look at the 1200W beast.

The chassis I have ordered is a ThermalTake VH6000BWS and I ordered the PSU at the same time and did not relise there was a compatibility issue with the 9800 GX2. I will SLI at a later date and 1200 shoud be enough. I have sent an email to the suppliers to advsie them to cancel the PSU and refund the money back and I shall get a ThermalTake instead. ToughPower are nice PSU's as well.

yes, and as you can tell from the link I gave, the Thermaltake 1200W is certified for SLI-ed 9800GX2's. Enjoy.

There is no "compatibility issue" with the Tagan PSU and the card. The Tagan 1100W is a fine PSU, although very overpriced, and can easily power a pair of GX2 cards without any "compatibility issues".

What Nvidia is talking about is a fitment problem between the clip on the 6+2-pin and the hole they made on the housing of the 9800 GX2. This is EASILY resolved with an adapter or simply snapping off the clip. That is, if there's a problem at all... only the first production run of cards had the small power connector opening and even if you don't have the larger hole, most power connectors would fit if you just wiggled them in.
