I have to have 2 Box fans going at max speed to drown out the sound (Yes, It's THAT LOUD!). It’s possible that you may find yourself with a hardware upgrade that is physically compatible with your system in every way but still doesn’t work.

If needed, you can Message the Mods. You might be able torun it with your current setup, and a good quality 450-500w psu would be more than enough assumingyour mobo can accept a 20/24 pin connector as mentioned permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–][deleted] 0 points1 point2 points 4 years ago(0 children)Alright thanks! The time it takes depends on how well made the unit is, and how much headroom it was given. 3.

For example, my PC Power and Cooling was sold as a 750W power supply, yet is known to remain perfectly stable up to an 850W load. I switched out my E8400 and put in my old E6320. No submissions to crowdfunding sites or ongoing campaigns. I mean if you were careful I doubt you broke anything without realizing.

When I look up info on mypower supply I find that it's different than others in the way it hooks up. Your motherboard may technically have eight SATA ports, but what if a large video card or cooling fan is blocking two of them? It's a Compaq EVO D310 http://h18002.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/productbulletin.html#spectype=worldwide&type=html&docid=11348 that came with a 220 watt power supply unit (psu).

The reason it is recommended that you provide an overhead is because the PSU is less efficient and thus more likely to burn out at higher loads. Also upgraded the video card from the 9100 that comes with it to a GForce 210 since it only required 300w to run but wish to go higher to a 550.The AMD's website has it's minimum required psu at 750w. When I press the power button, all the fans start up, I can hear the hard drives powering up, and I can hear my optical drives looking for discs, but I

My power supply unit can handle a maximum of 220 watts, so the demand would not be greater than what's available. I'm not knocking down on the unit that you chose as it's still a good power supply. Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. And you also say "That 5500 will have very different power demands based on the clock speed (not all boards are the same!) and the power delivery." The GeForce FX 5500

It will also make you more familiar with your system and with computers in general, which means you’ll have less homework to do the next time you want to upgrade.

So I'm not confident in my ability to understand enough to buy myself.

My original question was do I really NEED (need does not mean recommended) more power if I'm disabling the integrated graphics and installing a low watt video card. permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]knightmare712[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago(2 children)I have an EVGA 600b. Which model is it?

I just got the CPU that's currently (dead?) in my main machine about three months ago. Mobo or power supply issue Dec 18, 2011 My PC won't turn on even after troubleshooting. If this is accurate, I still have 12 watts available from my 220 watt psu for a very modest headroom, but again, the estimate assumes all these devices are running at This is not a satirical or 'circlejerk subreddit'.

Once reported, our moderators will be notified and the post will be reviewed. If you configure the power supply for startup (with 3X normal running power for each hard drive for startup) I should need 255 watts (see above post #7).
