My current TTGI 520W has 18A on the +12V and I'm going to watercool 3500+

MCP650
2x36 Raptors
1 barracuda
6800GT
DVD burner
CDRW
4x120mm fans
fan controller...
some UV lights

So am I fine or not?
To power your pump(s) I would suggest that you add a second PS,

the Sparkle, I have listed for about $25 should be more than enough for your pump(s).

EDIT:

Depends on the total current draw. I would go ahead & try it, it shouldn't hurt anything, so give it a try.

Pumps use the 12V rail, and it would probably do it but since you only have 18A to play with it would hinder OCing I think. It will hinder OCing if you get too powerfull pumps for sure

fyi: the 470W version has the same rating on the 12V & 3.3V rails...
The only difference is 34A vs. 40A on the 5V rail... and the maximum output of course.

interesting, will OCZ 520W be enough for the future SLI setup with 2 6800Ultas or GTs and oced A64? Or maybe upcoming OCZ 600W?

Smile I think that we are going to be "safe" at about 34A on the +12V rail for awhile

That is a very good question, however I think that we are going to be "safe" at about 34A on the +12V rail for awhile,

as that seems to be the standard that all of the "high-end" guys are now building to.

Arrow "high end" guys seem to be building for 33A to 38A on the +12V rail(s)

Yes! Jason posted a new OCZ 600W that is coming out.

All the "high end" guys seem to be building for 33A to 38A on the +12V rail(s),

so I think that is what we will be needing in a year or two,

with the new dual core CPU's from Intel & AMD.

I vote for sticky too!

Also, how those 2 rails work? Should I put my pump and fans and lights on 18A and the rest on 20A? Something like that?

It may be for A64's, but it still belongs in the Power Supplies section, which any A64 owner can visit for advice on what PSU to get for their A64. That's what the different sections are there for. Use them. Cheers.

I was looking all over the place last night on the website and other sites and I was about to reply its not there but I checked again and I saw it right away. Must of been to tired last night. thanks david

Edit: well it won't fit. it is 2.5 centimeters too long, it will hit my blow hole fan. anyone got any ideas on how to mod my case to make it fit. it would like way to stupid if i just removed the fan and the hole was still there.

Edit#2: problem solved. posted about it in the mod section and someone helped me out.

Question Tagan TG480-U01 a "SUPER STEAL for the STERLING"

the issue will probs hit shops on monday (i subs so i get it early ) but before doing anything with regards to buying a new psu.. see this article.. its a good 10 page article.. and if your in a rush to get a decent psu for the £70, the bast is the tagan, virtually unknown to most, but wow, performance in this torture test was amazing

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...roductID=82572

most of their labs tests end up on their site, so ill popst link when its released
As I have several business associates & friends across the pond,
I am somewhat familiar with your situation.

I did recommend the Tagan brand:
Quote:
These quality brands are highly recommended,
however not every power supply they offer will meet your needs,
be especially careful to make sure that the +12V rail(s) offer a minimum of 18A:

Antec, Enermax, I-Star, Fortron Source, PC Power & Cooling,
OCZ, Sparkle Power, Tagan, TTGI (Super-Flow), VANTEC,
Ultra X-Connect 500W, ZALMAN and ZIPPY/EMACS.
However I did not recommend any specific Tagan PS's because with US pricing,

they are not the " BEST BANG for the BUCK ".

If they are the " SUPER STEAL for the STERLING " then by all means,

I highly recommend these excellent PS's!
