    Quick question if you dont mind. I just got my new Corsair TX650w PSU today and had a two questions before I install it~

    - The current PSU I have has just a 4 pin ATX12v CPU power connector connected to my MB. The new Corsair PSU I just got has the 4 pin ATX12v power connector and 8 pin EPS12v power connector. Just wondering, do I want to plug in the 8 pin EPS connector to my MB since the MB supports it? And, what is the bennefit, if any, or differance in having the 8 pin EPS12v connector plugged into the CPU pwr as opposed to the older 4 pin ATX12v power connector?

    - Next, was just wondering, since I am changing to a new PSU, would I have to re-do all my testing again like IBT, Prime95 24 hours and Memtest86+? Or should I not even worry about doing that?

    thanx again guys

    do the two four pins connect together to make an 8pin?? if you mb supports 8pin cpu then use it

    If your Motherboard has an 8pin CPU power socket then yes by all means use the 8pin power from your PSU for it. Its really only used for the Extreme Edition CPUS which you can crank the crapper out of them and they will suck more juice. If your overclocking your standard CPU then the extra power cant hurt it at all. Its possible that it may even give you the ability to gain a higher overclock. Maybe not? Who knows. But use it non the less. You shouldnt have to redo any testing as everything should be sweet, and corsair make a good PSU, but for piece of mind it wouldnt hurt to run prime or something like it again for a good length of time to make sure that everything is working as it should.

    yes either use the 2x4 pins or 1x8 pin. Like said runing only 1x4 pin is enough to run everything but o.c not so good. I think LSD posted something on this but I remember reading it somewhere.

    Cool thanx for input guys. Ya, the Corsair PSU I got has the 2x4 pin EPS12v connector and my EP45-UD3P has the 8 pin CPU power connector on the MB, so I guess I'll use it, would be kinda silly not to lol.

    Acebmxer, you said you have the Corsair TX850w PSU, I assume it has the EPS 8 pin connector for the CPU power, was just wondering if you have it connected as EPS 8 pin?

    thanx guys ^^

    yes just got out the manual and it says 1x610 mm(24") 8 pin EPS12V connector cable.
    Note: The EPS12V power connector has a detachable 4-pin mechanism in order to support either an 8-pin socket or a 4-pin "P4/12V" socket on the motherboard.

    So if your mother board only has a 4 pin cpu socket you "break off" 4 of the pins (as they are 2 connectors in 1) or use as is (8pin) if you mother board has a 8 pin socket.

    I have not used it as a 4 pin as the motherboard has the 8 pin socket. Use it as a 8 pin.

    One thing I didnt see in the manual and I might change is which way is the fan supposed to face. I have mine facing the bottom of the case (psu gets mounted on the bottom of my case) as the cables are off set to one side. So to keep things clean thats how I mounted it. Its been working fine but If someone else who has one says other wise. I have seen pics of them in either positions.

    With a new psu, I like to run an overnight Prime95 or OCCT stress test. Before this test, I babysit my system for several hours to verify that everything is okie dokie, that is, there aren't any unwelcome burning smells or noises and that temperatures and voltages are OK.

    I hate to state the obvious, but an intake vent in the bottom of the computer is needed when you want to mount your psu with the fan facing down. I suggest installing a fan filter under the bottom intake grill/screen outside of the case to help keep dust out of your psu. I use a fabric softener dryer sheet as a dust filter and replace this filter every two months. You can buy aftermarket cleanable fan filters that attach to your case via magnets or velcro.

    With a bottom mount setup, some might want to mount the psu with the fan facing up so that interior heat is drawn into the psu and exits out of the rear of the computer case. I prefer the down facing fan setup.

    Im kinda with you on the facing down idea however when I got my Second HD4850 Temps were pretty warm down the bottom end of the case. When I turned my ODIN GT up the other way it made a massive difference to the overall temps in the case, plus shown the pretty blue light up inside the PC. The Gigabyte ODIN GT has a Gigabyte Graphic on once side and if you flip it it has PSU statisitcs and stuff the right way up even on the other. makes the 8pin CPU power cable a tight stretch though.

    profJim, I bet you computer smells spring fresh all the time.
