    Aniallation got a reaction from DerfStein in "How many watts do I need"? Check Here!   
    Just a general reference for "how much wattage do I need" questions that are filling the forum. Check these and you'll have a general idea of where to start for shopping for a power supply, and questions can be diverted from "how many watts do I need" to a much more specific "what power supply should I get within my budget that will power a system that needs XXX watts"
     
    Briefing on buying a quality power supply:
     
    Shopping for a power supply is not all about wattage. As much as your mind or people might make it seem like so, it's not. It's about multiple factors, however the most important things are the quality of the PSU and the amps on the 12V rail. Not just watts. This is why the question of "how many watts of a PSU do I need" is becoming drowned out nowadays, because it's no longer a large variable

    On with the numbers!
    Again, These numbers are established assuming you are using a quality power supply. The overclocks are also based on heavy overclocking, including overvolting. 
     
     
    Another way you could get a rough estimate on your own, is take the TDP of the CPU + GPU(s) and add 100W for other components. This should give you a rough estimate of the maximum power draw your PC will require at stock clock speeds.
     
    Use these numbers when shopping for a power supply, but if you're not sure of specifically what model to get, there is absolutely nothing wrong with asking! Create a thread in this section that contains your location (country is fine), preferred store or retailer (if any), and your budget. Our community members will be happy to assist you find a good quality power supply that will be quiet, efficient, and reliable. 
     
    Hope this reference guide was of help to you if you're looking to get a new PSU to upgrade or for a build. If there's anything that you feel can be added to this, or if you have any questions then let myself know.

    I like the Mazdaspeeds specifically, unique cars that you rarely ever see (only 4500 produced) yet still common enough that most of what you'll ever break can be found in junkyards. Slow, unrefined, loud, mediocre ride quality; but amazing handling that makes them very fun to zip around during your daily commute, makes lots of stupid turbo noises, and great on gas. 
     
    I started the first one I got (the all-orange one) as a project over the last two summers as something to play with, toying around with some performance mods as a learning experience. Now has a forged motor and fully redone suspension, just waiting on a few other things coming this summer like injectors and maybe a bigger turbo. However though it became too harsh (low and loud) to drive as a daily especially in the winter, so I picked up the grey one (mostly stock) to drive around without destroying my back. Then came the orange one with the black hood, which is just a parts car with a hole in the block. Just got the yellow a month ago so the gf can have one too... it needs work  
     
    Another one may be joining us soon...

    Check all connections especially between battery and alternator, battery to ground, and alternator to block. Signal plug on alternator as well, I've seen them get water into them and cake up. ALT fuse if there is one. You can try to remove the connections clean them and put them back on to get rid of as much corrosion and chance of intermittent connection as possible. If all that's good, the regulator or diode pack in the alternator itself may be loose or dying.

    Setting scaling to 100% should disable it across all apps. As long as you're okay with no scaling of course.

    Footnotes
    *1 - OCZ and PC Power & Cooling now known as FirePower
    *2 - Regarding 860W model, other Turbo Cool models were different and are no longer in production under the FirePower name
     
    Idk conclusion? 
    General advice? Pick a good PSU for your system and let it last. Choose one from a good OEM, one that's known for being high quality, and is as high up on this list as you can get for your budget. Balance out your builds and don't pick flagship components like CPU and GPU combined with a tier 6 PSU. People don't hate on the Corsair CX because it's a CX, but because people are pairing it with OC'd i7s and two flagship GPUs and wonder why they break.
