Default Re: 285 too much for CoolerMaster 600 Watts eXtreme Power PSU?

Hey wustl285, welcome to NVNews!

I checked your EVGA card and CoolerMaster PSU specs. GeForce GTX 285 SSC card is the flagship, accorded to the spec it require 550W PSU minimum with +12V of 40A but unfortunately your CoolerMaster PSU only can handle dual +12V rails of 18A each so it 36A. This mean your CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 600W PSU is not up to it so you need a new PSU with triple or quad +12V rails with more than 40A can handle GeForce GTX 285 SSC.
