    Default Is this reliable PSU, and can run SLI?

    Hey,

    I have a Amacrox PSU
    http://www.amacrox.com/04english/p-freestyle.htm

    I am wondering if this is a good/bad PSU? I am running a 260GTX on it currently, and hopefully another one in SLI later on.


    These are the specs on it:

    +3.3v 30a
    +5v 30a
    +12v1 20a
    +12v2 20a
    +12v3 20a
    +12v4 20a
    -12v 1.0a
    +5vsb 3.0a


    Reason I am asking is that my computer lately has started to turn itself off when playing games. Its not stressed too much, game I am playing lately is only warcraft3. After the PC turns off it turns back on fine when I press the power button, but I am suspecting this could be a motherboard issue and not a PSU issue..

    Where do you see anything about made in Germany? It is made in China just like 99% of all power supplies. Amacrox is an FSP offshoot.

    why the hell do their thumbnails link to rar files???

    By the way...anonymous.gamer, you never stated which model you have, they go from 750-1000W

    I am sure they are all FSP Epsilon based, meaning they are mediocre and will likely have high ripple at higher loads, but I am sure they can run SLi. As long as you don't have a defective one.

    It's your run of the mill FSP Epsilon. Bleh.

    Yeah, FSP is in Taiwan but I'm pretty sure their factory is in China.

    edit: That user name looks familiar, I'm pretty sure I discussed this before.

    No MOST are made in China, despite where the companies might be based.

    Amacrox's own site states that its research and design and manufacturing facility is in Shanghai.

    Sorry, I thought the link said the watt. Its a 750 one.
    The PSU is nVidia certified, so hopefully it would be fine running SLI

    I posted a thread on a different forums. Other forums = other opinions

    That is the absolute truth! When it comes to PSU's no other forum is even close!
    Yes. One of the last commincations I had with Dave Hammock before he disappeared from the web was how a major brand single +12V rail PSU wasn't shutting down when shorted. We were literally arc welding with the PSU. Hopefully Dave's absense isn't due to the fact that he got over zealous with the welding.

    yeah, I was thinking along the lines of:

    this forum = all the right opinions. why else would well known reviewers like SKYMTL and Spectre also post here?
