My 800 watt pos psu went up in smoke yesterday. and I wanted to figure out how cool my backup psu (620HX) was.

Thanks agin!

(And why I changed my sig to reflect it... you read my mind! )
Remember; wattage of a PSU is only 1/4 of what is important. The n00b's always think that a 10000000000watt PSU from chinatech that was 65$ and has 16 12v rails, with each rail having 7amps each, will power a PC with actual good specs: GTX285/295, quad core, etc..... Think of it this way, if you go buy Nvidia's specs for powering a GTX295, they call for a 680watt psu, xx amperage. So by Nvidias terms, your actually underpowering your 295, BUT YOUR NOT! Your corsair (solid performer) has 1 12v rail with plenty of juice. I'll never understand the reasoning behind some people (not you) buy $2000 worth of parts for there PC, and power it with a $70 chinatech 1 jiggawatt PSU, that is utter ****......
