    Hello guys.

    This xmas I got an Intel Core i5-760 CPU and a Biostar motherboard (link) to replace my current hardware.

    I'd like to know from you wether I can or cannot keep on using - at laest for his first moment - my current powercube, wich is the following:


    Spire SP-ATX-400w
    Application: Intel ATX 2.01, ATX 12V
    Frequency: 47Hz~63Hz
    Current: 10.7/6.2 Amps
    Output: 10.7/6.2 Amps
    P.G. Signal: 100~500ms
    Voltage Protection: +12V trip point 13.4V-15.6V; +5V trip point.

    Conectors: 20+24 pinos ATX (motherboard) x1; 4 pinos 12V (mb); multi-use x6; SATAx2.

    Thank you in advance.

    Bruno

    I wouldn't be so sure, it depends on your set up, how powerful your graphics hard is, how many drives, pc cards you have on, how many fans etc.

    400W is really on the low end.

    Of course it depends on what VGA and whatever else he has, but based on the information he wrote 400w is fine.

    If you want to be sure, check this site out and input your information.
