I will keep the WD in mind as I have read that WD is a way better route to take concerning HDDs... I am new to the building computer route..
There is no harm in having a RAID setup with different HDDs is there?
I was wondering if anyone had a link to setting up the 790FX bios for intial setup...
Has two 25A rails. Plain and simply not enough juice.
When you look at the numbers on the OCZ they do not add up correctly.
Tkae the 12v rails, They say 25A but that is not possible if they can do 552W best they can do is 23A. That right there is enough for me. If you cant label it properly then I don't want it.
Likewise if you look at the 3.3 and +5 and check by the amps, 3.3 x 25 = 82 and 5 x 25 = 125 82 +125=207 not their stated 150W so it is wrong there too. Like I said the numbers don't add up and that scares me!
Also notice the corsair numbers for max if you add them up they are over(by ~23%) 750 for 924W that is because the numbers are MAX if only that is used. Now the OCZ when looking at their numbers = 718W notice how much less it is over?(~102%)
in other words OCZ is lying about how much power their supplies can put out.
When you think about it the PSU is one of the main things you don't want to skimp on, It powers everything and can fry everything! So is saving $30 worth it?
