Unhappy Re: Power Supply / 6800 Series Sticky

F*ck

Then perhaps ill just buy a X800XT PE, though i would rather have a 6800U

If I change my mind and buy a new PSU, is there any you can recommend? It has to be highquality, powerful and as quiet as possible.

I originally had an Antec 430 True blue, but when I couldn't get my system stable, I upgraded to an Antec 550 True Control.

It turned out to be a memory issue, so I'm guessing that the 430 would have been fine. It has sufficient amperage, and wasn't too loud.

However, the 550 has got power to spare, the voltages and fan speeds are adjustable from the front panel, and it is much quieter, so I don't regret the upgrade at all.

I was going to get this same one and looked around for all the reviews on it, everyone of them were good. Heay, quiet, etc, all positive and those bright sleeves are awesome.

not a fan of thermaltakky stuff...

Hey Jakeup, i'm surprised to hear you're having problem with your 475W noisetaker. I have the same PSU. You might want to check to see if every molex is secured onto the vidcard, I find the molex connectors on my enermax to be really smooth and slippery. Oh, Did you use the EXTRA (molex connector) for the main power connector for your ultra??

My eVGA 6800 Ultra arrives this afternoon. I have a Thermaltake 420 and will let you guys know if I encounter any problems. I run my 3.2 GHz CPU at 3.53 GHz and I have two hard drivers and two DVD drives (one is the writer). Besides 3 additional fans, thats all thats in it. Its rated at 18A on the 12volt rail so I expect no issues. If I get weird lockups and such, I will advise.

I have a thermaltake purepower 420w running stable with the system in my sig. This is a good PSU for around $30. 18 amps on the v12 is running great even with an overclocked CPU and 6800GT.
