Windows 7: New PSU = GPU overclocks better for some reason more stable?

07 Oct 2019   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64

yes but I just am confused why it behaves like that its really weird cause I thought PCIe x16 was limited to 75W with ANY power supply

my only idea is there was some kind of voltage drop or poor regulation of some kind in the old power supply and it couldn't give out the full power to the graphics card and other critical components causing the GPU driver to crash sometimes.

and the new power supply is so much beefier that it keeps the voltage and regulation much better enough that theres no voltage drop or power loss for the PCIe x16 graphics card slot and so it handles things much better somehow with higher overclock and stuff on my graphics card.
