Need advices for my PSU

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
my current system is like below

Athlon 64 3000+
(I OC'd my CPU from stock 1.8 to 2.655Ghz (295*9)) @ 1.52v
2* G.Skill DDR500 1GB
(running mem 166Mhz, so now is 241.2Mhz)
Samsung SATA2 250GB HDD
WD 40GB HDD
SB Audigy Platinum
DVD RW
1 x 120mm system fan
1 x 80mm system fan
eVGA 7600GT

I have TT 430w PSU for my system.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

my system is only 2 week olds.
currently I have an issue with game play
it freezes like every 10~30sec
there is no artifacts, no lagging,
but it just stops and then work again and the stops

I could run prime95 for 12+ hrs to test stability of my system without any error/problem

well I decided to RMA my 7600GT and sent back to get replacement

but if the video card is not a problem, then it would be PSU

Is my PSU too weak to run my system, espcially with my video card?
If so, any suggestions or idea to check it?
Thanks

When you receive your new card you can retest and find out. Do not overclock the video card when you test. How many amps are on your +12V rail?

Which harddrive is the game installed on, if it is installed on that 40gb harddrive then that may be the reason.

I actually have no current measurement device with me.
so I cannot tell you how many amps on 12v rail.
but the spec says 18A, at least I know it should be around that value.

and I do want to OC my video card lil bit
for enjoying some 7600gt oc power

I do not have any programs or games on that 40gb HDD
that's just back up HDD, which is using for mp3 files currently, almost full

You have a lot of power draw on that PSU. 18 amps is fine for a non overclocked system but is a bit flimsy for the overclocking you are doing on both CPU and Video card.

What I was saying is to do it for testing purposes. Don't overclock and test. If the errors occur on a non-overclocked video card then RMA could well be the route. If the errors only occur on the overclocked video card then you need to drop some of the overclock.

I personally would think that the problem is the PSU.

It only has 18A on the +12v rail..... A bit low for a system with such an overclock.

you'll want a 500w+ psu for that system.

sunbeam nuuo 550w
ocz powerstream 520
seasonic S12-500 or S12-600
Enermax Liberity
FSP epsilon

those are all high quality psus that will have no problem powering your system. take a look at them. the prices range from about 85 shipped to 160

I took your advices, and decided to go for the Sunbeam one.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709004

I already ordered it, and it will arrive soon.

and I asked newegg about refund for my current PSU
they said I can get a refund for that w/o paying restocking fee even I cut UPC code for rebates.

once I get new PSU, I will send old one to newegg.

I spent like $40 more, but I know it will be worth.

Thanks for helps, I will give you out reps
