    Default Explain this PSU Sticker

    Hi everybody,

    Just new to this forum, glad to be here, a lot of people here have years of knowlegde. First of all, english is not my first language, so it may sound strange sometimes.

    So my question is simple. i'm confuse with this one, can someone explain to me this PSU Sticker. I'm wondering, in fact, how many amps, max, the +12V rail can give ?

    It's strange because the combine +3.3V & +5V is a little high. At max, i'm calculating, 450w - 200w = 250w. So i was thinking about 250/12 = 20.8 amps.

    Ok, right, if i do the opposite, 30amps * 12V = 360 watts, living 90w = 3.3v & 5v.

    So, how do y'all think about that.

    How much can i get, safely, max, from the +12V.

    I don't have any High End Video Card, I Have a GigaByte G41M-ES2L, Intel E8400, Matrox millenium p650, 2 Hard Drives.


    The Other One is MSI G41M P33, Intel Q6600, MSI 8600GT, 3 Hard Drives.


    All i want is a PSU that doesn't over heat and damage my components. I want sometimes durable and safe, but definitly don't need a 1000w PSU, something that does the job but safely.


    Thanks for reading, i hope it wasn't too long. Curious to read what y'all have to say about this one, i'm confuse a bit.

    Thanks again guys.

    UL number E126556 points to Youngyear. Which, in the past, has meant that the PSU is garbage.

    Theoretically you can pull 360W from the 12V. But since this PSU is presumably garbage, it's hard to estimate a safe value.

    Ok, so i guess i'll wait until something break. It's been running 24/7 since 4 months now, keep reading CPU, Video Card and Motherboard temps each days.


    I guess when the time comes, the PSU and the Motherboard will fried, hope to God it doesn't blow up my HDD. I'm just not interested putting money in this old technology, and i have multipli Back Up.


    Thanks Guys.

    Well, it may wear down your HDD and other components. Even if they don't break, the dirty power (i.e ripple infested current the PSU may be delivering) will cut the longevity of the HDD quite a bit. When I used crap PSUs many years ago, I lost a few HDDs. After I swapped to quality PSUs, I've surprisingly never had a one die on me. Last HDD I lost was back in 2006. But if it's so old it doesn't matter, then I guess you'll just have to cross your fingers.

    Hi guys, again, is this one a garbage thing. Don't see any useful Logos or Electrical Standard or things like that. I've a lot of old stuff, from Socket 478. 775 and the one i use right. I've a bunch of pieces. Another crappy question i guess, would you use this one instead of the AcePower Crap. Thanks again. Thanks Smirnoff, useful Infos, i'll check on that.
