PSU question about A8N-SLI Deluxe

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have the A8N-SLI Deluxe, and my power supply is the Antec True Power 550 Watt. MY friend has told me that the power supply that i have does not fare well with my mother board. I cannot run Call of Duty 2 with out my computer shutting down after a few minutes.

Is there any advice on how to fox this. Does anyone have any ideas on what power supplys work best with the A8N-SLI Dlx. Thank you

What about load temps? CPU and GPU.

Are you using the SLI??? Go to user cp and fill out your rig info. The PSU in my sig is probably the best one for an SLI rig on the market right now. The watt rating doesnt realy mean squat. My 510 watt actualy puts out twice the power of other PSUs with around the same rating because it is an industrial PSU modded to fit into a PC.
