DrTrice says:

you have any ideas for a good psu 50 bucks (400watt) that is kind of good quality and not loud as hell? best regards from germany

Rejan Rahman says:

My crap case power supply marked at 400 watt, there is no any 6 pin pcie supplementary cable, but I calculate my total usage of wattage. It below at 250 watt ( with out a video card). So, in theory I can run gtx 650 ti (1gb 0c edition) on my system with my crappy case power supply. I put my 650 ti into the system ( I use molex pcie power connector converter). Successfully I got video on my monitor. I played couple of videos but when I try to play game my system just shut down. Again I checked my total usage power and the card also marked that it withdraw maximum 110 watt. At this point my total wattage is around 350 or 380. Not over 400 watt. Now my question is, do I need a power supply which deliver more wattage or purchase a brand power supply such cooler master, corsair, antech etc.? I have faced a lot of problem to run this card. Please I need an argent solution. Please guys help me.

Mr Blank says:

This was very helpful, but you didn’t speak about the amps on the 12v rail, from what I have experienced it’s not only watts you need to account for but also the amps!

Nice video man . Did you saw Asus Gladius mouse maybe ? Similar shape to DA and even use the same sensor as latest DA . Can you take a look and maybe give some thoughts about it ? Asus Gladius is really something to consider right now for FPS gamers and comes with some new things like (2000hz polling rate ,replaceable omoron switches, spare mouse feet and its working with USB 2.0 cable you even get two of them braided and rubbe one and is using same sensor as latest DA) Good work bro keep it going .

Frikandel Speciaal says:

I´m having a weird problem, when i play a heavy game (like gta V) my pc just random shuts down. My cpu is around 45 degrees and my gpu is just on it’s normal temperature but my PSU gets REALLY(!) hot so i guess this is the problem of the random shutdown… it’s the cooler master b700. Is it normal that a PSU gets so hot? Hope there are some fixes..
