I have a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D, 3200+ venice, 1 80 GIG harddrive,2x 512 MEG Twinmos ram, ATi x300 se Hypermemory VGA and 3 USB that takes Power. I need a 24 PIN PSU for around 100 USD anyone got any suggestions.
Will raising memory voltage to 3.3 increase power supply needs by that much? I'm pretty sure that a 350 watt power supply can handle an a64,6600gt,2hds,cd/dvd,and 4 fans just fine.(no overclock though)
DFI recommends a minimum of 480watts for the lanparties just for stability reasons running at stock speeds, of course you can get away with less but better safe that sorry.
The problem with the DFI JP17 is the fact that is switches from the 3.3v rail to the 5v rail and leads to increased instability. Of course there is the jumper mod I was talking up which keeps the vDIMM specifically on the 3.3v which reduces all these risks and I would recommend doing if you are setting the jumper to 2-3.
