  • 650w power supply unit troubles

    i have a 650w power supply unit, with 2 ssd drives and 2 sata hard drives, 2 burners sata, i5 3570k chip, 4 2gb ddr3 sticks corsair, and a gtx460 1gb graphics card, and 2 case fans a 120mm and a 80mm, it seems that my 650w power supply unit can not handle all of this, what size should i go for ? i am on a tight budget too, its a shame because it is a very good psu

    650W should be fine with those components.

    What PSU is it and how do you know the PSU's power is the fault here?

      The PSU is my XFX XXX edition 650W modular PSU that ran a heavily overclocked 2500K, 8GB RAM, 3x HDD, 2x SSD and a GTX560Ti, just to rule out it being the PSU being faulty

          i ran a gtx460 and an i5 2500k overclocked on a corsair 430CX and didn't skip a beat

          so no idea why a 650watt xfx psu would struggle?

              So there isn't actually an issue, then?

              The noise will just be coil whine or something. It happens.

              Every GFX card i've had has whined when Crysis loads, but it doesn't happen in anything else.

                its a loud noise when i connect 4 hdds up, but without 4 it isnt ?

                and the noise comes from the psu, i done the paper test

                  Four hard drives?

                  Woos.

                  Five here – four HDD one SDD – and the 550 watt OCZ doesn't skip a beat. Not even when I ask it to power up USB drives.

                  Oh, and four case fans too.

                  Are you sure that it isn't drive noise?

                    as others have said, I don't think it's the PSU, I've been running a 2500k, ssd, 2x hdd, gtx580, 8gb 2133 ram, LED fan controller, 5 fans + the 2 on the nh-d14 - all on a 650w psu, with overclocks on the CPU, GPU, and RAM - had no issues at all.

                    I reckon either coil whine as Terbinator said, or drive noise as MichaelKenward said, or could be a mixture of both.
                    i5-2500K@ (4.3GHz) - Z68X - NH-D14 - GTX 580 TwinFrozrII - BitFenix Shinobi - TX650 - 8GB RipJawZ 2133Mhz - lots of fans & a fan controller !

                      well for one i have only one mechanical hard drive, the other 2 are ssd, which are silent, so that narrows it down to the 2 case fans, and graphics card fan,and cpu fan, i just rang the aria shop up, and he reckons its the psu isnt powerful enough, for all the stuff i am using, how can i tell how much my psu is using ?

                              network attached storage, but if its only 2 hdd then it might not be that.

                              how old is the 650w psu?
