Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W - Notebooki, komputery, laptopy, monitory, karty graficzne - Komputronik internetowy sklep komputerowy

this one looks good its a cooler master. I dont know what the price is though. I am not familiar with this currency.

Check the specs and make sure it is compatible with your current setup. you should look at what case you have. Where your PSU is and were the vent is facing. Also post your motherboard specs so we know what pins it uses.

Hm calculator gived me something around 378w when OC with no OC 359w so basicly it was running from begining on no surplus supply of power...

Right now i unpluged 1 harddrive and 1 cd/dvd combo and calculator shows 308w maybe i should unplug my secound hard drive?

Your problem probably developed due to overclocking. You were running your system with a PSU that was running 100% full capacity at all times. I would say 500w should be stable for you, but I would not recommend OC'ing with less than 100w over-head...


Edited my previous post with PSU, please re-check thanks. I hope this all gets you a good PSU and a stable system.

GA-EP35-DS3R (rev. 2.1) - GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Specification

So this is your mobo and it is ATX which is the standard board size. The PSU if it is ATX should fit where the current one is. that is a big case....

It looks like you need a PSU with the following specs:

24-pin ATX main power connector
4-pin ATX 12V power connector

these are standard so make sure whatever PSU you choose, it has these types of connectors.

There have been questions about this, but there isn't software that I know of....There is hardware you can buy to test the PSU: (but this still wont tell you the amount needed by hardware or the degredation)
