View Full Version : Retiarius Power Supply
My son has a Gladiator Retiarius SE SIG (RS 480) bought in 2005. It won't (98% of the time) go into Bios but sticks at first screen (DEL to enter SETUP etc). Aria techs suggest M/B failure or most likely PS failure. Local tech had a look and thinks PS failure is most likely. Can you get new ARCTIC COOLING SEASONIC SS-350 ATC Active PFC power supplies? Will later SEASONIC power supplies fit the odd ARCTIC COOLING Silentium T(1?) case?
I may have to junk it but the case is very quiet and son has ME so this is good. If I could get newer PS then I might update using the case. Where do I find out? Only identical PS I could find was sold on **** in December. Anybody know anything ?
Power supplies, you'll be please to hear are interchageable in terms of size when housed in a standard desktop/tower PC chassis. There are very few custom cases that require a special power supply, and we are talking going back a long way to some of the nastier earlier Dell systems.... I digress... I've done a Google on the case, and it would seem that any PSU will be correct, it's a standard chasis.
So, without knowing the requirements exactly for power, using the 350 as a guess at PSU rating - pretty much any branded PSU that is 450W (give yourself some headroom) will be fine.
Something along the lines of this (http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies/200w+to+449w/Corsair+CX+Series+400W+ATX2.2+Power+Supply+?produc tId=34003)
Thanks. The power supply is at the front bottom with a non detachable lead to the socket at the bottom back. I read somewhere having also googled it that the PS doesn't have a bottom cover, using the base of the case to enclose it. sounds different from a standard unit. Am I missing something? I can well believe it!
well I'm only going by a glance at the case pages, the first one that Google returns is riddled with an iframe vunerabilty :(
If you can get pictures of the case internals online, that'll make life a little easier. i was a little reluctant to spend too much time on the artic colling site given that it has been comprimised.
