I know this is a decent PSU. I don't need anything strong btw. I can get one for $20 shipped. And that is why I'm looking for info. However I cannot all I need.

Does anyone how many watts are on the 12 line? I also believe it's 32A on the 12v?

Thanks

It's 32A if you add the two +12V rails (15A and 17A) but I doubt it's actually 32A total output.

What are you planning on running with it?

Just a 3500 am2, dvd plus adding a 360hd dvd, probably 1 drive and 2 120mm tops 3. It should be more than fine. Just wanted to know if it could run a dual 6w Am2 and a higher end PCIe like a 7900 or a x1950.

I can't find any info, at all, on the wattage in total that are on the 12 line. On the sticker its says 3v+5 volt max is 150... but that's all the info the sticker has. Plus Xclio site has been down for a bit.

The case comes with a neo he 380 and it says it can do 330w on the 12v. It was reviewed by scpcr. I believe that should handle the system well (yet would be raching the limits on the "planned" upgrade.

I just wanted to see if for $20 I could get something that had more than 33ow on the 12v.

They must be hiding the wattage for a reason!!!

The UL# E161451 indicates CWT is the OEM for this Xclio.

Use the PSU that came with the case, if the system shuts down from lack of wattage, plan on spending $50~$80 for something decent.
Decent home wiring with a proper ground, a decent UPS with AVR, then a good PSU to supply the comp is the way to go. Do not disregard the importance of a good PSU, nearly 40% of PC problems are generated at the power supply.

People usually only find this out after they become victims of Bling Blang BAM!
PSU marketing hype, after the fact of course:o

Then they have to learn about PSU's the hard way;)

I know this. However I don't want to spend a lot on this system. the Case comes with a decent antec Neo HE 380. It has almost 340 on the 12v line.

I'm running very little;

AM2 3500
couple 120mm fans
HD
2x1gb
DVD

I highly doubt that at 100% usage this setup will use much energy and push the PSU. At least the NEo. The Xclio, I dunno.

As I said, go with the Antec over the Xclio.

Do not starve the Antec of cooling air by running high negative case pressure. If you are in an un-A/Ced room this summer with high ambients and high negative case pressure it will work the unit very hard and it's life will be shortened.
You did mention higher end gaming cards in your second post, that is why you *might* need an up-grade if this unit won't carry the load. *shrugs* See whatcha got. ;)

I'm with GY. Just use the Antec.

But the Xclio is a good buy at $20 (if that's not an after mail in rebate price) so if it's something you can only get for a limited time, snap it up and throw it in your closet as a spare. :D
