yeah no $h1t, powmax makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it
. i also had a powmax 400w psu and the rails sucked ass, the +12v rail was always over 12.5v (Very bad). best thing you can do is get a better psu. tell us your budget and we'll be here for you.

if you're running stock you should be fine but this website is all about overclocking so i'd recommend getting a new one if u plan to OC.
