why would the non modular work better? to be honest all of these psu's are crap for itx except a silverstone one with the short cables.
in re ITX PSUs: Non-modular tend to have more flexible cables, especially important for cable routing in the often extremely limited space right behind the PSU where the cables emerge. The modular power supplies tend to need more room there for the cables to make the bend, the cables can be particularly stiff where they exit the plug (if they could flex easily at the plug, it would be a failure point).
The Silverstone is in a class by itself.[QUOTE=endlesscash;59282284]...2) Wattage is NOT IMPORTANT! Looks at the amps per rail. A solid 430w power supply will destroy a piece of junk Ford like 600wPSU!.../QUOTE]You were doing great until the unnecessary Ford reference.
This price is not worthy of front page status, but no wonder, an FP mod is the one who posted it. This is yet another example of FP mods patting each other on the back.
Number of comments and t/u tend to have a little influence on that.
For all we know SD held off making it FP because a mod posted the deal...
Man I really can't stand MIR's... but alas I need a psu upgrade.
What do you fellas think... I was looking to pop in an hd 7570 that came with the xps 8500 system I scored (for $450 shipped) back in the outlet deal last week. Unfortunately, the built-in 250 psu couldn't hang, nor could the old corsair 380w I had laying around. I don't have a voltimeter on me, but it's an odd issue. The fan on the 7570 works (there's no power status led light or anything) and it even puts out standard video via both the hdmi and dvi. But that's it. No actual graphics performance of any sort and it reads on windows as a "1.0" on the graphics index.
So to the gurus out there, 2 questions:
1) if it's a psu load issue, would this cx430m do the job on the HP p7-1026 with specs here:
That's a AMD Phenom II X4 840T on there, hoping to pair it with the Radeon HD 7570.
2) If it's not a psu issue, what else might come to mind? Note that I've already tried both stock, stable, and beta firmware from both msft and AMD.
Thanks in advance!
Based on my experience (I recently bought a radeon 7570 that was also a working pull from a dell 8500, and all it would do is display 800 x 600 x 32bit color generic windows drivers on my 32 bit win vista OptiPlex that had been downgraded to backup/htpc computer status) I don't think this is a power supply problem. From what I've gleamed from the Dell forums, I suspect that this is a driver problem and that the generic AMD Catalyst drivers don't support this card as there's no AMD 7570 available for sale on the market (basically, AMD wants you to go to dell to deal with this card).
Your options might be limited to (1) using the dell xps 8500 drivers for this card (which as far as I know are windows 8 64 bit and maybe windows 7 64 bit drivers so you need to have a 64 bit os and probably win 8 or 7 64 bit) and possibly, possibly (2) flashing the radeon 7570 to a generic amd 6570 gddr5 bios (not my fault if/when it doesn't work). The flashing of the drivers might allow the generic radeon 6570 drivers to work with the card. And of course, you can just get a radeon 7750 and that would be almost guaranteed to work.
