HEC 425W PSu specs

Given the constant talk about power supplies I thought I'd list the specification for the HEC 425W PSU I've just installed as the specs are not listed on their website

HEC 425VR-PT
425W Peak (350 normal - on PSU label)

On Box

+3.3V 35A
+5V 37A
+12V 17A
-5V 1A
-12V 1A
+5VSB 2A

On PSU

+3.3V 20A
+5V 33A
+12V 15A
-5V 1A
-12V 1A
+5VSB 2A

all +/- 5%

Specs on PSu label match specs on back for HEC-350LR-PT...

Voltages are better than when I was using a Starnet/VIP 350W power supply - most notibly my 3.3V which would frequently dip below +/- 6%.

8 Molex connectors
P4 + half AT server connector
Overvolt, overpower and short circuit protection
Has CPU fan connector lead.

I wouldn't be surprised if some other manufacturer rebadges it so hopefully this will be of use to someone

Can you test voltages with a multimeter ?

And most importantly can you overclock any further ?

Hmm...
I have a HEC350LD-T at home lying around... I'll take a look at it.
It's a fine PSU, good for overclocking... but it was just plain loud.

Haven't had a chance to try overclocking any further but I don't think the PSU is the limit. Currently running Tbird 1000 (AVIA) @ 1400 (140FSB) with Nanya CAS 2.0 DDR. The CPU was bought sold as seen (3 for £10) and has noticable scorching on the sticker underneath ... maybe I should change my name to Lazarus

I'm most worried about my SCSI RAID card crapping out and hosing my system

The main reason I changed the power supply was the 3.3V rail. Usually it was about 3.18V on boot and never reached 3.20V. MBM would give me alerts on a heavy Medal of Honor (sic) session or multiple 3DMark2001SE looping.

With 2 x10k rpm U2 SCSI drives (occassionally 3), Geforce 3Ti 200 (heavily overclocked), Santa Cruz Sound Card, LAN card, MegaRAID 200 SCSI RAID card, 2x CDROM + several cooling fans I reckon I need a good, powerful PSU

Found the PSU... my 350w matches the yours on the label. BTW, it is rebadged by Antec for their 350w model.

Welcome to our Forums, Ned Flanders. Never thought I'd meet you in person!

If you paid for a "425" Watt PS, it's time to send it back. The specs on the PS are good, maybe a bit better than usual for a 350W PS.

But it sure looks like you may have paid for a 425W PS, but received a 350W PS.

An SPI Sparkle 350W is $42 at Newegg, atm. If you paid ~$75 for this "425W" PS, it's time to say "foul play!"
