PSUs

I just replaced my PSU to a CWT 420W (AntexPP412). Just thought I would share my results:

Before that it was an Enermax351, which had a 4.87-4.91v 5volt line. I won't post that pic.

Bottom line is all else being the same, the improvements to the voltages were quite startling. All 3 PSUs are brand name, quality units.

The key was the combined 3.3v &5v rails.
The CWT420W = 245w
HEC350LD = 180w
Enermax351= 160w

And this monster (CWT) is quiet too.... All I can hear is the quiet whine of the glaciator fan.

Solid voltage. Is there anything else quite like it? Well yeah, solid Amperage. You've covered both bases. Yaay!

Since T-Bred uses less power than AXP, does that mean less stringent PSUs are OK mookydooky AMD Motherboards & CPUs 6 1st December, 2002 03:15 PM
