I'm running a computer not a powerplant...! :)
I agree, I am running a simple but effiecent 300W/180 combined PSU and it holds its own very well. I use MBM5 and it has yet to drop below 5.0v or 3.25 and other than a few extra case fans (haven't installed them yet) I have allot running.

Hi Cody,

Any powersupply that does the following or better would do just fine:

3.3V 30A Max or more
5V 36A Max or more
12V 16A Max or more

If you find those numbers on the PSU, you should be fine...
Also check if something like 3.3+5V=200W listed on it, anything at 200W or above is ok....

Normally you find these numbers on a decent 300-350W powersupply....

Hi Bas. I'm communicating with you on another thread but decided to read other things. I used the formula and MY POWMAX LP 8800C PSU rated at 350W, by your formula figures 164 for MS 6378 running ATHlon 1700+, 256M SDram 133 Kingston ValueRam, WD Protege 20 M hard drive, Liteon DVD-ROM Model 163 (which is tested for this board) and a Phoebe (Intel ) Soft modem.

Hey tweetyoost,
I use the Macron MPT-400. I this it is a good power supply execpt for it does not have much air intake space on it.
So I cut a hole big enough on the top and added a 80mm fan on it to help cool the power supply. :evil:
It works better now.
Oh and mine looks nothing like that picture, I must have and older one. ?(

Sorry guy's it's not good enough for modern boards....
Keep just this in mind for modern mobo's, any PSU with a 12V line of 24A or above should work trouble free.
Modern boards don't use 3.3+5V that extensive anymore.

The Enermax is supplying more power on the +12V line, which the newer MSI boards require. The Antec is an older design for when the +5V line was more important.
