    Default Compatibility Question

    Hi, I have a asrock P45TS motherboard and I was wondering if it was compatible with the EVGA GTX 560 Ti. I asked evga and they didn't know if the p35/45 worked with fermi (4xx and 5xx series) cards.

    Does anyone know if this mother board and graphics card work together?

    I can't see why not. The GTX 560 Ti requires a 16x PCIe 2.0 slot, and that board has one. In fact since it is a bit older of a board, it's around the same time frame as that video card.
    As long as that slot is free and you have a big enough power supply (It will need 2 x 6pin PCIe power connectors, and check wattage) it *should* work.

    I also quickly asked google and the consensus was that was a fine combination.

    With an adequate power supply, a GTX 560Ti should be fine.
    My MSI N460GTX Hawk (GTX 460) works fine in my P35-DS3L system.
    I currently have two of the Hawk cards running in SLI on my N650SLI-DS4 system.
    Both systems are five years old and have pci-e 16x slots with pci-e 1.x bandwidth.

    What is the brand and model name of your power supply?
    Does it have two pci-e 6-pin power cables?

    Yeah, pretty sure my PS can handle it, I was more worried about the motherboard since evga didn't know.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like your power supply is a possible time bomb.
    I've seen a few Coolmax reviews at some of the best psu review sites and they were junk.

    The following is from a review of a different Coolmax 750 watt psu:

    Coolmax CUL-750B 750 W burned while we tried to pull 500 W from it at high temperatures. It burned exactly on the same point our first sample burned. The components that burned were one of the switching transistors and one of the +12 V rectifiers. Therefore, this unit shouldn’t be labeled as a 750 W unit, but as 475 W instead. Note that this unit has no protections to prevent it from burning. On next page we will show you the video from this power supply burning when delivering 500 W.

    Coolmax CUL-750B 750 W Power Supply Review | Hardware Secrets

    You're living dangerously if your power supply has similar performance and lack of quality.
    Buy a quality psu ASAP!!
    The best power supply review sites are JonnyGuru, HardOCP, HardwareSecrets, PCPER, and TechPowerUP.
    I won't buy a psu unless one or more of these sites give it a high rating.
    Most models from Seasonic, Antec, Corsair and XFX are very good to excellent.
    Check Newegg Canada's prices, I recently saw my Seasonic X-650 80-plus gold rated psu for $90 from Newegg USA.
    My Antec TP-750 New power supply got excellent reviews, was reasonably priced and 80-plus bronze rated.
    With an overclocked cpu and single card video card, a good quality 550 - 650 watt psu will be fine.

    Thumbs down Re: Compatibility Question

    I couldn't find the HardOCP review of the DiabloTek PSUL775 psu and they failed the DiabloTek PHD650 psu.
    Newegg USA's price is $61 less $15 MIR.
    It only has a 1 year warranty.
    I hate it when a psu only has a 3 year warranty.
    Nearly all better quality power supplies come with a 5 year warranty.
    I have serious doubts about DiabloTek.

    Keep in mind that a power supply that fails can take out most or all of your computer hardware.
    Would you build a really nice house on a crappy foundation?

    Thumbs up Re: Compatibility Question

    JonnyGuru doesn't give out 9.0 scores unless it's a pretty good unit.

    Looking at Newegg Canada's prices, you could buy an even better 650 watt psu if you went with Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX. The only problem with any of these somewhat lower powered power supplies is that they would be borderline if you wanted to run SLI or CrossFireX in the future with a higher end cpu/motherboard combination. I generally don't like OCZ power supplies because some are mediocre at best and some are quite good. The brands I listed above are almost always very good to excellent. I recently read a psu review from one of my good-guys-review list where the quality control on one of the above mentioned brands was below average. There's no shortcut to buying a good power supply, you've got to do some reading to ensure that you're buying quality stuff.

    Here's a list of 600 - 700 watt power supplies from Newegg - Canada:
    Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware, Power Supplies, Power Supplies, 601W - 700W

    Bottom line, the OCZ ZT750W looks very good, but you can probably do a bit better if you're willing to spend some time looking at other units.
    I'm glad to see that you're will to upgrade your psu.
    Let us know which one you buy and how it works out.
