Welcome to the forums!

 

If you have a picture of the PSU model that would help identifying it. Off-brand units range from "don't use in high power systems" to "avoid like the plague".

 

A lot of unknown brands lie on their power numbers, so they might call a PSU 700W even though it can only really deliver 400 or even less. But all units will have a table of what they're actually rated for (showing 3.3V, 5V and 12V ratings). That could help telling us more about it.

We have a NEW and GLORIOUSER-ER-ER PSU Tier List Now. (dammit @LukeSavenije stop coming up with new ones)

You can check out the old one that gave joy to so many across the land here

Yeah, that's not a power supply you want around. It claims 700W but only has 14A on the 12V rail, which is only 168W... I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

Exactly, don't do ANYTHING with this power supply. At least, not related to a computer. Perhaps you could swing it over your head, wielding it like a blunt object, to defend your property from bandits.

 

When it comes to your daily PC, your main machine, you can't afford to skimp on the PSU, even as a "broke gamer," because if the PSU dies and takes components with it, where will you be?

 

And like mentioned earlier, that 700 watts rating is a fantasy.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I'm speaking as a person that willing do sketchy stuff to get the best value here okay!!!

 

Why cheap generic PSU tends to kill PC's 'cause they are plugged in to wall that have unstable voltage "dirty power". Even if you have a decent PSU but still plugged to dirty power just a sudden power surge or a power outage followed turning back on, that voltage surge is enough to kill ANY psu no brand or not.

 

IMO you can use any psu generic or not as long as you have a safety. I recommends using a UPS but if you are poor like me, using a voltage stabilizer would do you well.

Remember! Reality Is An Illusion, The Universe Is A Hologram, Buy GOLD! Byeeee!!!

That's terrible advice.  You really don't know how PSUs work, do you?

 

You can have the cleanest AC power in the world.  Fucking NASA class shit.  But your parts run on DC.  It's the PSU's job to convert AC to DC.  If that DC is garbage, there go your parts (over time).

How the hell is that thing EVEN rated for "700W" ?!

All the +12v, +5v, +3.3v combined does not even adds up to CLOSE to 700W.

 

As mentioned, the +12v rail only has 16A (= 192).

This would only pass as a *REAL* 220W ~ 230W....

 

2A on the +5vsb ?

6A on the +3.3v ?

6A on the +5v ?

 

Automagically added another "500W" out of thin air???

Someone needs to fire up that class action lawsuit.

 

Or at least REQUIRE some sort of 3rd party lab testing.

 

I mean.... In the US, remember when CPSC put the hammer down on Powmax because the Razer scooter chargers caught fire?  But they had to actually catch fire in some number for anyone to actually DO ANYTHING.  They moved almost $600K units!!!  Probably why Powmax is no longer around today.  Who can survive that?!?!
