Problem With Desktop PC - Page 3

First, you don't add the rails together it doesn't work like that. The Glacial Power 550 is a dual rail unit with 18A on each of it's two rails. I actually found several reviews for it and it looks acceptable. As it says in the review though it has much higher ripple than average, no active PFC, and it isn't 80 plus certified. The Chieftec is pushing it close so I'd go with the Glacial Power over it. I really wish you could find a cheaper Seasonic, Corsair, or Antec unit.
It's your system, it's your choice, and your risk.

That's the stock memory speed for an Athlon II X2 so it defaulted to that speed.

533x2=1066Mhz.... so that is what it is running at.......

1333/2=666.... so that is what you need to set it in the BIOS....

just checked the specs on your motherboard

it should support the speed....

you will have to set in manualy in the BIOS

It'll do the trick. Your system, while at stock, requires around 250W from the 12V rail. This is an estimate, and should be treated as such, but you should be alright to do some overclocking.

It's ok and is feeling the difference between this and other two psu's.

How much should i overclock the CPU and GPU? The default clock of CPU is 2800 MHz and gpu clocks are...



For overclocking the GPU i will use Riva Tuner. Do you have to suggest me some software for overclocking the CPU?


Thanks all for helping me out so far.

i would use afterburner instead of Riva Tuner....

and you can either use the AMD Overdrive software i mentioned before...

or just mod the setting in the BIOS (would recommend this)
