Default Re: Do I have enough power?

i did a look up on rails a atx12v standard requires up 18A for each 12-v rail when running a standard hardware set since your running above standard you might be wise to look to a new power supply (this is above standardI have a 520hx, 40A psu running a q6600 @3.2, 1.30V. Antec 900 case, 4 fans, Tuniq 120, 8800gt sc and an 8600gts ssc, and b2 500gig seagate HDs.) i would guess 550w min and 600w a good option hope this helps
