    Here is a basic poll to see how powerful the power supplies of TPU are.

    This poll is ONLY for the power supply installed in your main rig. If you have a new power supply on the way for your main rig, vote for that instead of the one you currently have. For example I have a 550w power supply, but I won some contest somewhere and I'm getting the 1000w single-rail modular PSU from Silverstone I would vote 1000w+ (heh... I wish... that PSU is a beast).

    550W came with my first pre built PC. Been using it for over a year now, no problems.

    Usually a 450w but it broke, so for now im running on a 350w. To be honest seem's smoother than what it was before (the running of the OS),

    I do tend to not to be able to resume from the monitor turning itself off after the 15minutes, I'm only able not to resume when left for hour's without use. Here's the odd thing, If i want to keep my pc turned on for what ever reason, if i turn the monitor of manually n then come back to it a few hours later, it works perfectly... possibly a power issue?

    I`m beating the theory of cheap PSU.
    Hantol 635W 20eur 12V@22A only one rail. Quality PSU with this kind of specs usually is rated 300W.
    And it is good enough to keep it stable 24/7 E5200@4.2GHz@1.42 and suicide run 4.8GHz@1.7V.

    I used to have an OCZ 600W gamexstream, RMA'd it and got a modxstream 900W back... probably more than double what I actually need but oh well!
