Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Hello all, 

I have a refurbished H-8 1234 and the fan for my PSU has become damaged(don't poke stuff with q-tips!) which has led to it becoming far too noisy for comfort. 

 

Rather than trying to replace only the fan I'm feeling the easier route would be to just replace the whole PSU(if I'm wrong please let me know). The spec page from Tiger Direct says the H-8 1234 uses a 300 Watt power supply.

 

I've learned that the motherboard in my model is proprietary but I'm not looking for an upgrade in wattage, I just want a replacement or compatible PSU for an undamaged and quiet fan. 

 

Any direction on how to get that and maybe where exactly would be much appreciated!

I'm thinking I will try a Corsair CX430, will this be compatible  with my h8-1234? Again I don't need to upgrade anything I just need a replacement PSU for a quiet fan.

 

Again any feedback, as I've never replaced a PSU before, would be extremely helpful for my stress! Thanks

Hi guys, I am planning to upgrade my existing HP Pavillion p6590d (bought around 2 to 2.5 years ago) and I am rather unsure on how I can do this. I plan to upgrade the GPU to like a 750ti(preferabbly ASUS) and this probably requires me to upgrade my PSU as well. However, I am not sure whether the PSU and GPU will fit my chasis or not, please help! I am currently looking at a Corsair CX 500M or CX 600M and want a ASUS GTX 750Ti.

 

The specs of the PC can be found here

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

I'm hopeing to upgrade my PSU in my HP 700-210 to handle a  amd radeon r9 280x 2gb or a r9 280x.  Plus I'm upgradeing the RAM to 16gb or 32gb. I'm looking at a  

Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply 750 watt. Any other PSU suggestions?

Hi,

 

You have an UEFI enabled PC so make sure that when you buy a video card that is UEFI enabled or you will need to change some bios settings.

 

Why did you reference a 750 watt power supply then post a link for a 600 watt power supply?

 

The AMD R9 280 is a 300 watt card.  I wouldn't install that card in your PC.  You motherboard is not robost enough to handle that kind of power.

Re: Guide for Selecting a Power Supply

Hi RedWolf1,

 

The Corsair CX600 would be an excellent choice.
