PC temps are way higher with my new PSU.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


So I used to have a cheap 400W PSU that I replaced when I had the chance. I went with a Cooler Master B500 500W PSU, because it was cheap, and it looked good. The installation was sucessful, and I loved the PSU, as it was so quiet, and sounded like the PSU fan wasn't spinning. But after playing games with it, I've noticed that I get way higher temps. Even my WiFI card overheated today (keep in mind, that it's an USB one, and I left it sitting on top of my PC, and my PSU is installed on the top). HELP please.

Does your case have any airflow?

My sound system uses more power than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

The fan is spinning, and the case doesn't really have a lot of airflow, but with my older PSU the temps were way lower
