|Good day to all,|
First of all I really never thought about upgrading the stock powersupply. What made me think about it was helping a buddy purchase his new computer. I started reading spec's and realised most of the units you can buy off the shelf come with 250-300w power supplies. Which is underrated for most up grades.
Here is what I have
Hp M9340F This unit case with a 350w power supply stock. (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01465973&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3740326)
I upgraded to
8gig ram (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835129029) I put 2 sticks in.
New case exhaust fan (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835129029)
New and faster DVD combo drive (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136180R&cm_re=gh22ns40-_-27-136-180R-_-Product)
New Video Card Gforce GT-240 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130533)
Also I run with 2 screens most of the time screen #1 is a 32" Sanyo and screen #2 is a 46" Sansung. I run 2 external hard drives both 2TB and some times plug a 3rd one in with is 500GB. Also charge phones and Ipods with the USB cables.
All this said I know I'm under powered and I'm getting worried. I want to put the AX850 Corsair (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015) This unit is about 0.8" longer. There is a latch holding the one that is in there fight now which with the new one it will be too lone I believe to latch in. Specs on the one currently installed (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817174033&cm_re=5188-2859-_-17-174-033-_-Product)
Can I put this in with out any case modifications or would you suggest something else.
