    Enter the bios and check out the "hardware monitor" tab, there you usually find these power messaurements.. ;)

    Oh ****, maybe you meant the total power outlet from the psu? I'm not sure if that is shown there but hey check it out..

    well, V*A=W
    If the powersupply doesnt say it, you have to use the above formula to figure it out.

    If you post the make/model, maybe someone knows. Do a Google search on it.

    brand name is hoarang or something, that's all it has on the sticker and some jibberish about the blue, red, green, stuff on the main PSU wire.

    hoarang? never heard of it, I just hope it ain't a low budget one. It can be dangerous to your hardware. :(

    Did it come with your chassi? What is the chassi brand, if it is a noname or some very small manufacturor then it may be a very cheap budget psu which they usually toss in their chassis to save some $$$..

    you need a multimeter to measure the Amps and calculator to add up all the wattages, but if its off-brand PSU, I would recomend getting something nice like enermax or antec.

    Enermax and antec. Antec work 100% even at full load

    The max combined load of 5.0v and 3.3v shall not exceed 130w

    Typical specifications for PC Power Supplies are:

    STANDARD CONNECTION: -

    +5v mainboard -
    4 channels @ 0 - 8A per channel

    +12v mainboard -
    1 channel @ 0 - 10A

    +5v mainboard -
    1 channel @ 0 - 600mA

    +3.3v Mainboard -
    6 channels @ 0 - 10A per channel

    +5v Peripherals -
    6 channels @ 0 - 4A per channel

    +12v Peripherals -
    6 channels @ 0 - 3A per channel

    ATV 12v are the standard for new XP/MP and P4 Cpu's
