How do you calculate how much W you're pulling in to your CPU?

I was mistaken in my calculations kinda. I was calculating TDP in other words the amount of heat your cpu is putting out.

Really? That ram isn't a good price? Thats Canadian prices if you didn't catch that. I've seen it at $240+ on other sites. considering its 2x4gb cards, the 8-8-8-24 timing and the voltage it seems quite reasonable to me. *shrugs* anyway, I take it that its fully compatible with the 790fx/890fxa mobos?

Why would you get that RAM when you can get these with better timings and product feedback that confirms working compatibility with the 890fx chipset for less money?

mauro125 have you tried your build outside the case? Could the problem be a short with the motherboard mount in the case? Is the ram seated all the way?
will give that a try on my day off, hopefully it'll work. Thanks for advice.

Hello,

I fried my mobo recently about 3 days after putting in a new PSU and gfx. RMA'd it, getting it back soon but I wanted to double check something. My CPU is a Phenom II X4 965 BE. My old PSU some generic 450w had a single 4-pin connector for the CPU. The GD70 has 2 4-pin CPU sockets. With my old PSU I just used the one 4-pin connector and it worked fine.

My new PSU is a KINGWIN LZG-700 and it has 2 4-pin power connectors. Should I be connecting them both to the CPU power sockets on the mobo or to I stick with using one connector which worked fine with my old PSU?

Thanks!

790FX-GD70 has an 8-pin connector that can be divided into two 4-pin.

Only 4-pins works fine up to modest overclocking settings. But if your new PSU has two 4-pin plugs that fit between them as if they were an 8-pin connector, this is the better way of use even with stock settings.

Since when do motherboards carry 6-pins...
6-pin=graphics cards.
4/8-pin=CPU (on motherboard).

ok, sorry, yes, I meant 4 and 8, not 6 and 12. either way, you're saying I should use both 4 pin connectors on my power supply?

Thx

P.S. I'll edit my post
