MSI REWARDS - PARTICIPATE ON MSI FORUMS, GET REWARDS
It's a different board/chip, but I wonder if the wattage of the CPU goes above 125W and causes problems on the board? Hmm
Doesn't want to crash now, yet last night it was about 10 times over and over.And when it does crash, the fans etc stop/turn off and the leds on the front of the case are blinking, almost like it's gone into standbyYou have to turn off the PSU at the rear, then back on again, to get the PC to boot up
Thanks WaltI feel stupidly guilty over the whole thing, I thought it'd make an awesome present, but it's been nothing but problems from day one.Wish he had a spare power supply hanging around
34Amps on a 12 v rail is 408 watts - but New Egg states it has 500watts continuous power.So I bought this to replace a 400w sparkle to give myself more of a power cushion, but apparently it is possible I have given myself all of 8 watts!
Cons: Had to get this to run my new HD 6850 Radeon. Come to find out the wattage is misleading so I think it's overloading. 12v only puts out roughly over 400w. Alot less then the 480 I was expecting.
Would sticking a 80-120mm fan in the case, loose, to blow on the board be sufficient?
I ended up replacing my brother's power supply as well, went for :It hasn't done it since and that was installed sometime at the beginning of November.
@Adresch: Thanks for the update. Hopefully it'll stay that way. At least that's a great psu.@pWEN: OPen your own thread and don't hijack others' please. You mustn't look for a thread similar to what you have but create a mew on on your problem. >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<
