  • @master_jerjen

    Pa warranty mo na yan kung meron pa, tapos palit ka na ng mas mataas Corsair AX/AXi or RM series o kaya seasonic Evo s12/m12 520.
  • i have a 5-year old corsair hx620 and my rig was only running at stock and the specs is meager. Can i still use this if i plan to use i7 6700k (to be overclocked), nvidia 1070, 2 ssd, 2 hd, 1 sound card, 10 pieces of 120mm fans and a number of 5.25 bay fan controllers and display. I will be overclocking the proc and memory but not the video card.

    if i can't reuse the psu and i need to buy a new psu, which is recommended for this specs? seasonic g750, seasonic p760 or corsair rm750x? thanks.

    kung buo ang primary circuit mo, afaik dapat nasa 300 to 400 + volts yun, kasi voltage doubler circuit yung eh, pero depends pa rin sa design ng circuit ng psu mo, mas maigi pa check mo sa marunong mag analyze ng circuit, delikado yan..

    I have a 7-year old Corsair HX 620 which I still use for my Core i7 4790K + GTX 970. System power draw while running the latest games is around 250 watts. Expect Core i7 6700K + GTX 1070 to draw about the same power

    In it's lifetime, my PSU supplied about 200 to 300 watts for my past gaming PC's
  • guys need help sa UPS. Balak ko kumuha ng UPS, my PSU is seasonic na 520 watts
    PC specs are

    i5 3470
    Galax 1070 Virtual Ed (parang founders lang, not overclocked)
    8GB RAM
    1TB HDD
    250GB SSD
    Monitor is ASUS 27 inches

    question is, kaya ba yan ng 800VA na APC? Mukhang out of stock kasi FSP e, 1500 VA lang meron kaso medyo mahal na for me nasa 7k na price

    thanks

    we have the same psu nagana pa naman na sakin mag 3 years na siya i think
  • Mga master.. Pag ang 8 pin cpu connector naka connect sa mobo at ayaw mag on, ano po ang problem?
  • I just bought a SUPER FLOWER SF-500p12A from a surplus shop. Rated 498w sa 12v rail. Legit kaya ito? I got it for 700 pesos.


    Madami good reviews si sir Gozai about the said brand so I gave it a go.

    Worth it ba?
  • Madami good reviews si sir Gozai about the said brand so I gave it a go.
    Di lang sa brand.. pati sa unit model dapat sir...
  • good pm mga ka-tpc.

    advise lang po: locally available surge strips vs tripp lite LR2000 <click here for link>. my psu is seasonic platinum p-1200. electric ulility is MERALCO.
    ok lang din ba na direct to wall outlet na from PSU? thank you!
  • Good morning to all. Ask ko lang po kung may nagamit sa inyo ng Corsair RM750i and Corsair RM750x, anu po ang difference nila?
  • Mayroon po ba dito nakapag putol ng cables ng PSU para iklian?
  • Mayroon po ba dito nakapag putol ng cables ng PSU para iklian?

    Madali lang iklian yan. Its all just soldering work. But be sure na may shrinkable rubber tubes ka to cover up your work neatly. In my case, pagpapahaba ng main power harness usually ang ginagawa ko. Super hassle since I have to do at least 24 solders!
  • ^ yun nga sir pwede gawin. Hindi pa ako masyado magaling mag solder pero nipaghandaan ko nga. Bumili ako heat shrink tubes. Ang issue ko lang baka naman sobra taba at matigas yung part ng soldered connection.

    Ang tinitignan ko, mag re-crimp at terminate nalang ng 24pin, 8pin PCIEX, at yung 8pin EPS. Ang tanung naman eh meron ba mabibilan dito ng connector and pins?
  • Kung connector plugs and pins, meron sa Deeco. You'll need the crimper as well. Mas mataba ang resulting wires kapag ganyan as opposed to shrinkable tube covered wires.
  • Salamat idol. Makabisita nga sa Deeco.
  • Ano po ba ibig sabihin nung may owltech ng seasonic? is it legit like we usually see here or is there something different about it? madami kasi ako nakikita seller na seasonic na may nakalagay na owltech and mas mura sya compare sa usual.
