Is anyone using the Super Flower PSU's?  They are a bit cheaper, than the most known top PSU's, but according to http://dansdata.com/sfpsu.htm, they can cope with the load.

any experiences?

Hi,

I consider Q-tec crap, their 550W doesn't do anything near that number....
They are crap in a chiney box :D
Even most cheap 350-400W's can do what they do :D
Decend PSU's are:

Enermax
Powerman
Zeck
AOpen
Antec

There are many more.....allway's check the Max numbers total power like 550W or so don't say anything at all, for all I care, it can be just a model number :D

PEAK numbers are bogus, max is the number you want as it tells you the max continue load......
Those numbers are important.....

Hi,

Just checked their website, and their numbers look fine to me.....
Their 320W does what could be expect from a decend 320W.....

Hi..
it's me again  :))
Now I look at some PSU and as my slef question
what good specs should be on a 450W psu
the combinet power of 3.3+5= XXX-XXX Watts
wonder what good range should be here.
Anothe one is it posibble to have too much power out of those 2 important Voltages.
like PSU 300W 3.3+5=380W and  like everything else 20W (whitch i think probably bad)

Hi,

Well it doesn't work that way....
The 3.3+5V combined gives the maximum power those two rails can do.....
As these rails are moslty taken off the same circuit inside...
Like my PSU, it has 205W combined and 3.3 can max out 30A and 5V 36A but if you add those two like Q-tec does :D
It should be: 30*3.3=99 and 5*36=180 you would get 279W, but the rails can't do that, not even an Antec Truepower, but that one gets close to it :D
But the ampere numbers give a good idea of what it can do on it's own....
So it can max 205 on those two, and the rest is left for the other lines....
That's only 12V mostly still more then 150W.....
You can forget about 5VStandby......a few watt is enough...
The -5V and -12V are hardly used on modern boards, only for serial ports, but they don't take much....
The biggest users of the PSU are on the 3.3+5+12 lines where 3.3+5V are the most used for allmost all logic...
12V is mainly used to feed the CPU, motors and fans....

Do I still make sense???? :D

lifes a balance and so must a psu be

thats why some with only 14a 3.3v are no good despite being over 400 watt rated

you should see 200 plus combined on any 450 watt overall probabley nearer 220 watts

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.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying. If you want a power supply calculator, try the one in my signature.

For you hardware it gives:

Recommended PSU: 306W (99W on +3.3v & +5v rails) for:
-1 x Motherboard without onboard devices
-6 x Fans (including PSU fans)
-4 x Memory (128MB DDR)
-1 x Graphic Card
-1 x PCI Sound
-1 x HDD
-1 x CD-RW
-1 x Keyboard
-1 x Mouse
-1 x PCI Modem
-CPU: Intel P4 3.0D GHz 0.13 µm µPGA478 @ 1.525 V with HTT

The 24V 206W (306-99) requirement gives 17A.

If you want my experience, buy the 465. The Antec 430 will handle what you have now but if you add a better video card you may run out of juice.

watts = volts x amps

+3.3V x 28.0A = 92.4W
+5V x 36A = 180W
+12V x 20A = 240W

Total: 512.4W

However, the entire supply has a limit of 410W on the above voltages. That's why you can't make a decision based on Watts alone.

Enermax is available both on-line and through computer stores.

Hi, again all there

I have tried all day :fear:, I'm sure i don't know how to PSu calculator, have some questions: :confused2:

A. is it correct my done math of psu calculator? and why different them of amps? how much most important of amps (+3.3v,+5v,+12v) (see below)
My PSU calculator:

EnerMAX EG465P-VE FCA
3.3V @ 0.3A / 35A
+5V @ 0.3A / 35A
+12V @ 1.5A / 33A
-12V @ 0A / 1A  
-5V @ 0A / 1A  
+5Vsb @ 0.1A / 2.2A
---------------------
+3.3V & +5V=200W  
Total O/P=460W

Calculator PSU:
+3.3V*35A = 115.5W
+5v*35A = 175W
+12v*33A = 396w

total = 686.5watts---No way! :shocked:(this is too much)
3.3v + 5v = 290.5 watts

686.5@70% = 480.55w

686.5@30% = 205.95w

686.5@50% = 343.25w


So, the 396 watts from the 12v rail and its running @ 70% = 227.2W,
now 396 watts @ 30%  118.8W, and 156 watts running @ the optimal 50% = 198Watts.


--AND--

Antec Truepower with blue LED 480
+3.3V @ 0A/30.0A
+5V @ 0A/38A
+12V @ 0.8A/22A
-5V @ 0A/0.5A
-12V @ 0A/1.0A
+5VSB @ 0A/2.0A
-------------------
+3.3v , +5v & +12v = 410 Watts max


Calculator PSU:
+3.3V*30A = 99W
+5v*38A = 190W
+12v*22A = 264w

total = 553watts
3.3v + 5v = 289 watts

553@70% = 387.1w

553@30% = 165.9w

553@50% = 276.5w

so, the 264 watts from the 12v rail and its running @ 70% = 184.8W,
now 264 watts @ 30% = 133W, and 264 watts running @ the optimal 50% = 69.3Watts.


Can I choose Antec TrueBlue 480 watts? is it OK? :confused2:


-------------------------------------------------------


B. is it right my done math of PSU calculator? how much one choose my good psu?

USB S-bracket
firewire card IEEE 1394



My siguration all system to caluclator
from http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/ about 475 Watts


475 watts --> 475 + 475*30% = 617.5 then 617.5 - 617.5*30% = 432.25w as same as
475 - 475*30% = 332.5 then 332.5 + 332.5*30% = 432.25w...enjoy!


other from http://www.adecy.com/psu/ about:

Recommended PSU: 425W (143W on +3.3v & +5v rails) for:
-1 x Motherboard without onboard devices
-8 x Fans (including PSU fans)

Can anyone help me, please????:cry:

with almost every thing in your box running of the 12v rail

make sure the 3.3v is over 28a

and then get the biggest 12v amps value going

in your case the enermax you listed

but if you have that antec 430 now why do you need a new psu

i would have thought thats fine

Sorry I forgot, I've tried calculation at http://www.adecy.com/psu, and I got I need
423 W, does it mean I need a PSU whose features give 423 following your calculation or what?

Thank you, I can not understand what all these numbers mean

Trust me when I say that ThermalTake and PowMax are probably not the way to go. I don't know about Vantec, but I'm using an Antec True550 fine.
