is this PSU good enough ?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hello dudes.....

I already asked you about this PSU, which was my best bet, but now I have purchased it, so today I went and received it, and its standing infront of me in its box.

this PSU is Everest 80plus 800 by FSP.

I already found some infortmation about it, but now as I have obtained it, I can give more details so you can help me know whether its suffcient for my in-progress (P55 - i7) upgrade or not ? I may go CF ~ SLI in futre .
so I am going to post as what's written on the box, which is as the following:

(they explained the following on the box

- compliant for Intel Core2 Extreme & AMD Athlon series
- ATX 12V V2.3|EPS 12V V2.92 ready
- Quad | 4-channel 12V Rails Design
- High Efficiency > 85%.
- supports serial-ATA for HDD
- supports multi-GPU graphics cards.
-environmentally friendly PSU with active PFC
- energy saving on standby mode < 1W
- 120mm variable-speed fan with ultra -low noise
-full range input complete protection (OVP, OCP, SCP)
- true total power.
- module cable management
- quad PCI-E connectors
- quad channels 12V rails.
- L*W*H = 150 *86 mm


Electrical Specification:

AC input: 100-240 Vac ~ 50-60Hz.
DC Output :+3.3v /+5V/ +12v1/ +12V3/ +12V4/ -12V/ +5Vsb.
Minimum Load: 0.0A/ 0.5A/ 0.0A/ 0.0A/0.0A/ 0.0A/ 0.0A/ 0.0A
Maximum Load: 30A/ 30A/ 20A/ 20A/ 250A/ 1.0A/ 3.0A
(1)+3.3V & 5v Max Combined Power is 175W
(2) Total Power is 800W
.................................................. ......

Conectors Q'TY


20+4 pin 1PCS
4+4 pin (+12V) 1PCS
4 Pin (+12V) 1PCS
PCI-E (6+2 pin) 4PCS
SATA 9PCS
PATA (Big 4) 6PCS
Floppy 1PCS
so these were all written on the box, plus some other cerifications/logos indicatig something like testing proof like: (Overdrive by tom's hardware) & (TTP.... True Total Power)

- so now as I have given more details than before, what do you guys say in general about this PSU ?

- if this PSU was certified for Core 2 Extreme, do you think it will handle Core i7 860 (maybe overclocked too) ?

- what setup of CF or SLI will this power supply be able to handle ? ( so what are its highest cards? )

- and will this PSU handle overclocking an i7 860, with an overclcoked GPU (may be HD5850) ?


I am waiting for your input.

800 watts is probably plenty for one gpu, even a little over kill. It should be able to run most crossfire setups, but it might not SLI. Especially SLI 480's, I have read they need more power.

2 5850 crossfired draw around 470w. A single 5850 draws around 300w. You should be okay but any videocard higher than that and I might start to worry a little.

I couldn't really tell you about the quality of that specific PSU though.

It's fine. Mediocre (the best word to describe FSP as a whole), but not horrible and it can provide nearly three times as much power as you need.

I mean that lets not only talk about whether the amount of wattage is adequate or not, I want to know about its other specifications, are they good as well, compared to those PSUs we see today ?? so I want to know, do they meet my system upgrade requirements ?? (the i7 860, HD 5850 (CR maybe) that I am supposed to upgrade to as I mentioned already).

so what ?

It'll run it.

It'll run it but has much poorer ripple suppression on the 5V/3.3V lines compared to other units out on the market.

It is reliable but not that great.

All the connectors are modern, it meets ATX12V 2.something, and it can deliver three times as much power as you need. The electrical performance at high loads is kind of mediocre, but at your loads it will be fine, and it would be fine at high loads too, just not great.

I don't know what more you want.
