    Default Finally! New shiny PSU!

    A huge HELLO to everyone and especially to Jonny!

    I wrote a HALF PAGE thread to post here and the frickin piece of crap went all blue one me(BSOD) as I was previewing the post!
    Yes, it really seems that those BSODs happened always on the worst time! And yes, writing a half page thread to post and have a BSOD is much worst than to happen when just cruising the net.

    Oh and Jonny I must say this now that I have the chance. I just FRICKIN LOVE your reviews! Plain gold! A real pleasure to read. Smart and witty. Just how I like them. Keep it up.

    Just got a OCZ Z-Series Gold 850W. Sorry Jonny. It was the best I could find. Trust me. I really wanted a Corsair HX/AX, or SuperFlower etc but at over 800-850w and Gold(I run 24/7) with good quality, I couldn't do any better price wise.
    So my concerns are these. With this OCZ be enough for the below rig?

    2600K@4.5
    Antec 620
    ASUS Z68 (Have not decided)
    2x GTX 570 heavily or GTX 580 moderately OCed
    2x4GB G.Skill RJ-X 1600Mhz CL8
    2xHDD: Seagate 320 7200rpm 16mb and Hitachi 5k30002TB
    Crucial m4 128GB
    HAF 922 All fan slots used(2xScythe S-FLEXs)
    A few other USB devices

    The reason I ask is because besides the loose connector pins, I have read about high -12v(100+). Should those pose any concerns I should know? Should I check anything before I plug it in my current rig(besides the connector pins)?


    Also going from the below piece of crap psu to the OCZ will I notice any differences? In ANY aspect(besides efficiency)? I know that it's just a psu and won't cure my slight hair loss and cut my body fat down to 5%(14-15% now), but I'm just saying.

    I really wanna hear your thoughts on the above. Thanks in advance.


    My current rig is this:
    E7300@3Ghz(stock cooler)
    ASROCK Conroe1333-DVI using this solely because of OCing options(I have another MSI G31M2 V1)
    ASUS TOP HD4770 @910/1050
    4x1GB Kingston DDR2 800Mhz(@667)
    Seagate 320 7200rpm 16mb and Hitachi 5k30002TB
    Crucial ordered and arriving shortly.
    HAF 922 All fan slots used(2xScythe S-FLEXs)
    A few other USB devices

    see this thread:

    The 570s will be more of a problem than the 580 if OC too high.

    Yeah mdk777, I already read that. The 570-580 heavily(not LN2 heavy ) overclcocked should draw around 300-330 each. With a moderate Oc'ing they shouldn'l pass 600+/-(sli) I believe.

    Add another 135-145 for the cpu(@4.3) and all my stuff and I shouldn't pass the 800w according to my calculations. What are your thoughts guys?

    My above concerns interests me at the most and if I should look out for anything when I installed it in my current rig. Thanks.

    I'm surprised it ran at all. I doubt it can actually do 280W on the 12V rail, and if it's delivering power that's out of spec it could be at the root of those BSODs.

    I know. Same here. I wish I had the equipment to test it's Efficiency/Noise/Ripple/VoltRegul etc. I bet you all we will be amazed. We're talking 80+ Diamond Here! With 98% Eff and perfect regulations.

    Although to be honest it served me well so far 2 years with 24/7, intense gaming for hours(over 8-10h/day sometimes) with my OCed Cpu and heavily oced Gpu and with everything else connected. Although both of my Cpu and Gpu are low power ones, it must have been a stress for this PieceOfUtterCrap.

    Not a bad PSU by any means, should suffice for second rig.

    Really..? Really.....?? I had underestimated this little sucker. It's still crap, but its a good crap!
    Also props to rafal_iB_PL for finding that. I searched back in 09/2009 for info on it with no avail. Just I didn't search hard enough.

    Well, I personally can't tell too much from the pics and I don't speak Polish or whatever. But I am surprised there is so much there. It looks kinda beefy.
