Some slient, glow-in-the-dark case mods


Recommended Posts

I think there is something a bit wrong with the recommendations from that site Caintry.

 

I just put my hardware specs into it, and it said all I needed was a a 283 watt power supply. :thud:

 

AMD 6 core processor

 

2 sata hard drives.

 

1 DVD Burner

 

Nvidia Graphics PCI-E

 

16 GB of DDR3.

 

Front Bay card reader

 

I wouldn't let a 283 watt power supply within a mile of my computer :P

 

Minimum PSU Wattage:233 W Recommended

That system probably draws a lot less power than you think it does though Bruce.

But 283 is a bit low. I'd say about 350-400 mark sounds right, unless your video-card is super-high end.

 

It told me 690 watts for a massively OC'd i7, 6 sticks of DDR3, 6 HD's, CF 5850's, 1 BR drive, 1 DVD/CD RW combo, sound card, PCIe eSata, and various USB devices/fans. My system has a 1000watt.

 

The only way for us to really know is to use a tool like this.
