This review is the one that got my attention. If the ATX power revision number differs allot then there could be problems. The key words of interest here is "Failure to power up properly" and "frustrating to track this down, for it can appear to be underpower, a weak memory stick or overheating". This is the outline of my problem with my current system. Im thus returning(well im trying if they ever come to pickup my PSU) my psu to be swapped out for a supported ATX revision version that would work.
One key reason for your next upgrade to buy a good/strong PSU:
Even so, Is Higher Power Better?
Without getting into technical details, the nature of a power supply is that it delivers as much power as is demanded by the components.
This means that when installed in a PC whose components require 200W, a
400W PSU and a 250W PSU will each deliver 200W. Does this mean the 400W
is coasting while the 250W is struggling? Not if they are both rated
honestly and if they have the same efficiency. If one has lower
efficiency than the other, then it will consume more AC to deliver the
same power to the components, and in the process, generate more heat
within itself. As long as there is adequate power, higher efficiency is the key to cooler, quieter PSU operation.
The main benefit of higher power PSUs is when the airflow in the PSU
is deliberately set very low in order to minimize noise. This usually
means the PSU components will run hotter. If all other things are
equal, a higher rated PSU may be a better choice in such an application
because its parts are generally rated for higher current and heat than
a lower rated model.
I hope this a contribution to the Carnage folk and that some of you might find this of interest.
