A message to the community on enthusiast power supplies - Page 3

I just want to say that the Antec Earthwatts 430w is beast.

I run a backup/folding Rig with a GTX 275 24/7 which nvidia says needs 575w minimum.

it's been a almost a month and no problems whatsoever

And remember, weight isn't all important. My Zalman weighs a ton, but is easily outperformed by lighter, cheaper and smaller units.

It's sexy though...all that silver

On that note, what would it be? Enthusiast? Mild-enthusiast lol?

The OCZ's aren't bad units, their just not high-tier like the AX/TPQ/X-series.

When you buy a high end enthusiast power supply, especially one that I can vouch for, you should know that you're buying into more than just a name. You're buying a machine, and one that's a lot tougher than the typical dreck you might have used before. So don't be afraid to use it for what it's intended for. Forget about "extra headroom", forget about babying your PSU or keeping some massive unnecessary safety margin. Go ahead, get that second Fermi and go wild. Most of you have already paid for that ability, so make the most of it.
This, as I'm also tired of how people keep saying I would need a 1000W for GTX 580 SLI while I know I'll be safe with the AX850. Thanks Phaedrus2129

When you run components off a PSU that does fail (some crappy PSU, or you push that headroom too far) what damage can you expect to your components?

Is it just a matter of the PC refusing to power up until the PSU is replaced, or could there potentially be permanent damage to say the MB or graphics card?

Good to know. Now I don't need to hesitate or give a second thought, when I get another 480.

It depends on what fails inside the unit. Component death can definitely happen.

Absolutely. However, try to think of it in terms of powering your entire system with the GTX 590 in it.
