Should I go for this one instead? CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W 12v@30A, single rail
How can I find out what "atx?" version my computer case is and if the psu will fit?
Hi again :)
I've been looking for a more powerful PSU since my current is only 300watt and that's too weak for future upgrades. I have a couple questions.
Some PSUs come with a 20+4pin connector and an 8pin connector. My mobo requires a 24pin(this would use the 20+4) and another 4pin separately, so will the 8pin work on the 4pin mobo slot? I heard that some 8pins detach to make 2x 4pins, but does this apply to all 8pins?
Here's the PSU I found for a cheap price:
COOLMAX 600W 140MM LED FAN
(The website doesn't list the specs or serial number, but I couldn't find any other model on google except this one, it lists the specs:
COOLMAX VL-600B 600W )
Could you tell me if that PSU is reliable enough? I'm not looking for something to last 5-6 years, something that'll last around 2 or so.
Additional info about my pc:
My pc: Gateway GT5064
My mobo: Intel (Cortez G2) 945G Viiv Motherboard
Other info: x1 Sata HDD, x1 DVDRW rom, (Radeon HD4670 video card, buying it soon)
PS: I can't buy online, no credit card etc, so I'll have to go in store. If that PSU is utter doo doo, could you spot a better one (under $70) on this list:
About the dimension of the PSUs, it's universal size right? I shouldn't worry about it not fitting inside my case?
