Q6600 on P5Q Pro Turbo OC 3.2 with Dual 9800GTX... need more than 550w PSU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi folks... title say it all but here it is

I have P5Q Pro Turbo with Antec 900 Case. I just plug my H70 with 2 fans on it. The Q6600 is giving me 3.2ghz as it is B3 version (cause too much heat) ... before I OC I was runing 2 EVGA 9800GTX... the problem is the following... when I try to boot ... the pc just shut off... like missing power and the screen light stay yellow (for no signal) ... so am I missing juice from my PSU? I have Cooler Master 550w... isn't enough?...

I removed a video card and everything seems fine... at least it seems stable

Possibly the PSU, since the eXtremePower series are generally crap. They change manufacturers often, so they suck to varying degrees, but they all still suck.

Yeah, I really wouldn't take my chances with that PSU and two of those GPUs. Either lose one card or get a new PSU.
