As one of my friends put it, "Gigabyte motherboards tend to work."

just bought the Enermax 420W psu off someone from Craigslist for $30.

Here's a NewEgg link, but its deactivated now.

Customer Reviews OfENERMAX Noisetaker EG425P-VE SFMA 2.0 420W ATX12V Ver2.0 Power Supply - Retail

You guys HAVE to give me your suggestion(s) or opinion(s) on this power supply.


Also.. thinking of taking the motherboard back to the store and telling them that I changed my mind since it's unopened anyways, therefore I think it should be easy to get my refund.

35 amps on the 12v Rails?

That's not bad.. I'd get it and Enermax is a good company
