I understand that this obtains its power from the motherboard power connectior. I just wanted to know if it supports the new style ATX (EPS) 24-pin connector?

I was thinking otherwise...I can't see exactly, but that pass-thru thingy looks like a 20pin male-20pin female in which case i can't use it

Yeah....i was just interested in the 'more stable voltage' side of it, and also i believe ti goes up to 3.9v which may - or may not allow me to get this ram on a 1:1 with a 285-290fsb (i could be dreaming tho)

3.9
That would be some pretty sweet bandwidth scores at that speed though. I say give it a shot
If the psu will work that is.

Yeah thats what i was hoping
I'm getting a little bit worried about my Tagan being up to the job now (which is bad as i'm half way thru sleeving it). Its got 28amps on 12v rail, but im not sure if i need to go for one of the big 550w jobbies with around 35A or more.

I would give it a shot first, and keep a close eye on that 12V rail. Of course I recommend a 550watt 35 amper or so, but you have a pretty nice oc there as it is. A spiking psu can fry your mobo, so I would just keep an eye open for major fluxuations.

Yeah i'll see how it goes...i can still probably take off the sleeving and return it to the shop - pay an extra £40 and get a 500w one. I really like the look of the OCZ PowerStream 520w with adjustable rails.

Yeah, those are some very nice psu's. Probably going to be my next purchase, either that or the PC Power and Cooling. $200 is a little pricey for a psu though.

I suggest reading some reviews on it before you buy it. I just read a few, and the booster has major compatibility issues, and doesn't get to 3.9 volts on very many boards at all. Just FYI
