    I have the 450W dual fan :p codgen PSU, my 12V holds stable and it was only $79AU :D

    Almost got enough motivation last night to take pics, then realised i was going to have to plug the cammera in and download the pics, I WILL do it! NEXT WEEK I promise.

    I also have to tidy up my cables, had a full rebuild the other week and must tidy cables, they are still tidy in comparison to normal, it's just i have to compensate for my flat .:p

    Dr. Pete ...
    Do you just "add up" all the power draw of the fans ?
    Ahh, you know what, it's too much work, I'll just get a 400+ Watt puppy...:D

    Well, The absolute most outrageous fan I have ever seen was a 15 watter. And that was a 120mm with over 80CFM. My point is this, the average 80mm fan only uses 2-4 watts, which means, you can't really add too many fans. So don't pick a power supply to power fans.

    An overclocked Athlon however can consume of 100 watts, alone, and throw in a beasty vid card and you are up to 150 already.

    :cool: You might have a problem with 15 10+ watt fans. 15 at 2 watts shouldn't be a problem unless you started close to the limit.

    Nah, i chose it ages ago.. my surname is wise, and people started calling me wisie or wise eyes in primary school, so i remembered back to then and used that.
