    Hmmm...

    So, I probably don't deserved it but, how come everybody has those cool cruncher tags? Well not everybody but, Team members have them.

    Do I have to pass a test, point total, time span?

    Anyways, just an observation mixed with ingnorance. :rockout:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    Those 2 power supplies still funtion well. I have one in my 3800+ x2 cruncher and the other is in my Kt7a server. They have served me very well.

    thanks Mad!

    Last night I took my 275W that I test with and got the cruncher back up but undervolted and running 75% so wattage I would assume to be around 125W total. Hope that will keep my numbers afloat until the new one gets here.

    Great that Mad Shot helped you out :toast: was trying to figure what I could do to help but was running into dead ends :banghead:

    Take care of that X6 first- better to have lower points for a while than a dead system....

    Really sorry about all this B. Wish I could had helped further but I wouldn't want you running the PSU I am about to pull. It's ok for low power stuff, it's like a 250W that's specc'd on the label for 500W. Ask him if you could do a loan, seems like a cool guy.

    Mine absolutely flipped out when I told her I spent the PayPal cash from selling my GT240 for a Corsair CX430. Then once I explained she changed her ways.

    PS: She's a software girl. I'm a hardware guy. Deadly combination ;)

    Not necessarily. I bought this in 07 for $30. I couldn't ask for anything better. It's been through 5 builds. Just time to retire the old girl.

    LOL

    That's a 20pin and I didn't see the 4 pin mobo header?

    *** EDIT- I got an old Mad Dog 350w in my s939 system- can send that if it helps... I know it has the 4pin but not sure if it's 20 or 24 pin??? ***

    Careful brandon. It's only got a 4 pin cpu connection. You can do without the +4 but an 8 pin on those Thuban's are necessity if attempting to OC also. You may have to keep it stock.

    My MSI K9A2 Plat only has a 4 pin CPU connector, not 8

    Then I would watch attempting to run heavy overclocks on it. Nothing past 3.3Ghz.

    @brandon- If you don't come up with anything by tonight PM me and we can work something out... I have an idea that may get you a Corsair 850w Silver rated modular PSU

    I have clocked many CPU's on boards with only 4 pins? I havn't had an issue with the board just the PSU that exploded.

    ygpm

    *EDIT*

    I just PMed Mad Shot to have him hold off shipping the PSU until I can figure out what would be suitable for the 6 core.

    Exactly my point. The board may be able to take it but attempting to run that type of current through 4 wires ....

    I may beg the wife to let me buy BOW's PSU then order a 8pin to 4pin adaptor (Heavy Gauge). I had one of these before in a build.
