    sweetness it does i was looking over my box again but the ampage for 2 are 18 amps the 3rd is 15 i was checking out it is better to have higher ampage on the rails if i am correct

    Higher Amps on 1 single rail the better you are. But having more independent 12v rails can be a good thing. Alot of people prefer 1 12v Rail with HIGH Amps Because the more rails you have the more power gets distributed through eash seperate rail.

    You can safely calculate how much PSU you need. The 2 biggest factors are your CPU and Graphics card as the graphics card uses 12v power.

    To determine the current draw of the card you are using. That number is usually given in Watts. Divide the watts by 12 to get the amperage draw of ONLY the card.
    Do the same for the CPU.
    There are other items that also need 12V current. The drives Motherboard Etc.


    Start the calculations at about 15A and then add the current draw for the CPU and each of the graphics cards.

    Ok i just did a Hardware monitor check cpuzhw and it showed im only using 36 watts but increases with performance to 98 w due to being greatly oc'ed 95 w being the normal this card will use and my mainboard supporting up to 125 w

    so if this is right i should be ok then

    Yeah its good stuff, i enjoy everything about it. It really is a good hobby. If i had more $$ i would build computers more frequently just to do it lol. Its fun and interesting at the same time.

    About two years....It came out of my old system running a 4830....did well, then I built this system....I split the duties between it and a 530 watt rosewill with each running one of the 6 pin connectors(4890) Then it got to where it couldn't carry its share of the load

    I've got a 630 watt Rosewill to replace it....just need to get un-lazy and get to work:)

    Anyway that's why I like the Rosewill line
