problem with p150 case...
It is a very nice case that I intend to buy, but I have a dilemma.
If you read the review witch is below the technical specifications you will see that a lot of people have problem with the power supply. Now, a guy told me that Antec fixed that problem and there is nothing to worry about, but I don't know what to do.
What exactly are you putting in this case? Cause most of the components/parts are pretty power hungry today. A 430 watt psu might be able to power some of the new machines today but it would have to be a very good quality psu. Skymtl would be the person to answer your question more accurately though:thumb: . Post your specific parts list... it will help:biggrin:

there you go...
The power supply is Antec Neohe
If it's the 430 watt one...Imo it's not gonna cut it:(. Especially when it gets put under load. Might boot and surf net things like that but if you fire up a game I think the Psu will crap out on you, but again that is just my opinion...Sky knows alot more about psu's than me:thumb: .
it seems like every case that I like and I want to buy comes with a power supply that sucks..
That was my previous one and i loved it! And it's modular http://www.hardwarecanucks.com//imag...4fedecee92.gif
Recommended PSU for a 1950pro is 30A on the 12V line.
If I recall correctly it's between 8 & 11A draw all by itself.
I replaced my 520W 28A OCZ when I picked up mine because so many folks were having problems with underpowered PSUs.
It might have powered it, but I didn't want to take a chance on damaging my system through overheating. (The VRMs on both the vid card and the mobo heat up because they're trying to clean up the dirty power put out by a PSU pushed beyond its limits).
i'm thinking of buying a raidmax sagitta + ocz gamexstream 600w...
