Is My PSU Rubbish?

They're separate rails, after all, and they have their own circuitry which controls the voltage. Moreover, the PSU reviews at XbitLabs actually open up the PSUs to have a look at the internal designs. Intel considers these PSUs to have met their minimum requirements but they do not meet the 20 amp current limit on each 12 volt rail. Hopefully, in the future this whole daliance with 20 amp current limits will just disappear and 12 volt life will be simple again. More about the author

oh and it's Antec. is it good enough? War_of_1812Feb 26, 2015, 12:27 PM Sweet, so then, now to wait a few more weeks for my tax return and BOOM I shall order it. So when you buy a PC PSU, it's hard to know what you've really got.

Independent 12 volt rails would be legal as long as they're limited to 20 amps but they are not required.

Put antec true550 in. 3.3v rail shows as 2.91. 12v = 11.6. 5v= 4.94 (in core centre and bios). https://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/printer/is-your-problem-caused-by-your-psu Thanks!

Don't forget, a PSU that works on a PIII system probably won't work on a new Athlon XP system.If you do decide you want to buy a new power supply, then If you get a bad PSU then the wattage ratings on the label can best be described as a work of fiction.

They just rarely tell you what they are. Thus the only factor is depth and PSUs that are not 1000w very high end ones are all normal depth.You did not post the psu you want so I cant guarantee oh and it's Antec.

So you can't trust the maximum current ratings on their 12 volt rails. Once you've set the switch properly it's okay to connect them. The fact is that if you're building a high-end computer, power supplies with no current limiters are easier to deal with than power supplies with current limiters.

Each of the 12 volt power connectors on the PSU cables is hooked up to one of the 12 volt rails. vBulletin Skins by Bluepearl Skins Is your problem caused by your PSU? Also which one to buy? The names of the three kinds of power supplies are a bit long so let's shorten them to single 12, independent 12s, and current limited 12s.

Probably some good, recoverable copper and aluminum. Your 12 volt rails may have different ideas about what voltage they should set their rails to. The real issue is whether the power supply provides enough total current at 12 volts (as well as the other rails) and not whether it has multiple 12 volt rails.

If you try to draw more than 30 amps of total current from both of the rails then it will also shut down (assuming that the internal 12 volt rail also That's true even if the motherboard requires the extra 4 pin or 8 pin 12 volt CPU connector or if your video card requires the 6 pin PCI-Express connector. So now you may be assuming that your multi 12 volt rail PSU is a current limited 12s. Real power supplies tell you exactly what the PSU can do: input voltage range, minimum and maximum current, load regulation, output ripple, temperature derating curves, over voltage and current limits.
