Calculate Minimum and Recommended Power Supply Unit
May 17, 2010 | Filed under Online Service;
One of the most important hardware when anyone wants to build a custom computer is the power supply unit (PSU). If the power supply is too low and not strong enough to support the available hardware on the computer, the computer will experience problems such as random auto shutting down, USB devices not working due or no power and etc. However having too powerful PSU is also a waste of money since it pushes more power and also cost more expensive.
One easy way to calculate the minimum and recommended power supply unit is by using an online eXtreme Power Supply Calculator. The database now contains 1100+ CPUs including latest processors from Intel and AMD, latest graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD (ATI) and more. All you need to do is go to the online calculator page and simply select the hardware that you have or intend to have on your computer. Once done, click the Calculate button and you will get the recommended and minimum PSU wattage.
The online Pro calculator cost $9.99 USD for a lifetime usage and it provides extra features such as support for multiple Video Cards (up to 4), 3-Way SLI and Quad CrossFire X, Amperage on +12V Rail, Amperage on +5V Rail, Amperage on +3.3V Rail, Recommended UPS Rating and Print Results Page with Amperes per Rails.
