I'm having troubles with my new system, so I havent really been able to test it out, but how good/bad is this PSU?

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...148-001&depa=0

I already have it, so I cant re order something else, but I'm just wondering if it might be causing any problems with my system below VVV I think the problems are with the mobo, but I'm not sure...

btw, problem is: Turns on for about 8-10 seconds, does a short beep, then whole comp turns 100% off. Checked mobo for beep code thing, and found nothing...

Looks like a fairly good PSU. Have you tryed it on a different PC??? Maybe it's something else... Or you got a fubared PSU in the first place.

if its that good, i want one! 500w for like 54 bucks?!?! are you kidding me?

Ok, so if I hook this PSU up to a Ultra Infinity only the 20 pin ATX plug should be on it, and not the 12V? Or should the 12V be plugged in and not the ATX, or both? I've tried both, and I tried just the ATX, and I was having troubles with both....

If the motherboard has sockets for both the 20-24pin ATX and the 4-pin 12volt ATX, plug them both in

If we are talking about the DFI nForce2, You shouldn't need a 4 pin molex, socket A mobo's don't require that. It is interesting that this mobo has it. Does the manual say what it is for? Maybe for the AGP Slot? I think that you should remove everything except for the the CPU, 1 stick of RAM, Video card and hard drive. See if it boots up. Also try clearing the CMOS.

My knowledge of nForce 2 and Socket A is pretty limited having never had experiences with it, but I know, for whatever reason, that DFI nForce 2 boards had the 4-pin 12 volt connector, and it could be for the simple reason to get more juice to the CPU for better overclocking. Regardless, if it's there, plug it in, because it was likely put there for a reason. The higher end XP's might need the 4-pin since PSUs are usually labled "Pentium 4/AMD K7 Compatible"

I have one and it works great. The Rails arent anything outstanding, but they are within the tolerances, and none of them are particularly low. It provides enough power for my system, and it looks f'in sweet. Also all the cables are sleeved not just the 20 pin on mine.

Yes its clean, and its within tolerable ranges. I say buy it just for the price. In my situation, I bought it because it looked sweet and was the only 500watt PSU I could afford, and I am more than happy with it.
