Could you tell me?
Be Quiet 430W (28A).
Be Quiet 430W (28A).
Never heard of be quiet. Is the 28A for the whole thing or just 12v?
For whole thing (2rails x 20A).
Well 20A across each 12v rail is very good and fine for a 4870.
But I'd wait to find out if anyone knows about the manufacturer.
That`s the point. I can`t find this information, that`s why I`m asking you
Is it a dark series?
A bit of googling says they're not too bad, and the Dark series are very good.
http://www.silentpcreview.com/article677-page1.html According to reviews I've seen in the net it's a europe-only brand, which makes reasonably good PSUs. Not known to Americans because of this.
Yeah, it`s Dark Power Pro (BQT P6-430W). Is this enough for Gainward Radeon HD 4870 1GB Golden Sample? I mean 12v rails (28A whole).
Power consumption on load is 304W
I'd say you'll be fine, Dark Series seem to get good comments
Be Quiet PSU's are mass advertised in CustomPC, and they get raving reviews - Id say you'll be fine.
You''l be just fine - do you have the required PCIe power connectors?
Yeah, I`ve got two 6-pin power VGA connectors So 28A and 430W will be enough?
I wanna hear others voices about this. please
I am running an ASUS EAH4850HD 512MB on a 400W Corsair PSU. Never let me down as of yet.
Here's everything I'm running on it, just to give you an idea:
AMD 64 X2 6400+ 3.2Ghz Black Edition dual-core
4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 RAM 667Mhz
ASUS 4850HD 512MB
ECS Iris 1.0 Motherboard
1 LightScribe DVD/CD-ROM Drive
1 Seagate 120GB Hard Drive
Corsair 400W PSU
I play games on max settings all of the time. Always seems to work. I think you'd be fine.
Im running the ASUS 4870HD DK TOP 512MB with a Ultra X3 600W and now with a Corsair 650W with no issues.
I think if the PSU is decent it should be no problem.
How old is your power supply? Depending you may not want to due to capacitor aging. My old Antec Truepower 2.0 480 was holding up for a bit til it just shut down one day and decided that was it and just killed itself, bit of smoke and it was gone. Overclocked E6750 @3.6 and a standard 4870 clocked a bit higher.
Just something to think about
BeQuiet! is a great mark But 28A will be enough for 4870 1gb GoldSample?
I say you are borderline. With your system moderately overclocked, it's going to pull more than 400W at the wall. When I had a Q6600/4870 (all oc'd) it would pull around 480W at startup alone. BeQuiet PSU's are quite nice though, but I would opt for something in the 500W+ range.
Id say get a new PSU, like erocker said, its pretty much on the border with that PSU, u may actually run nice and have no problems, but u may also end up with a fried PSU and some other parts too. SO my suggestion is get atleast a 550-600 w PSU from Corsair or Tagan or any of the other good names around.
I`ll not overclock my CPU...
Is 28A enough for this card. Cuz wattage is fine (about 350W in peak with P 9850).
Separate names with a comma.
