DEF_MUTE Posted January 15, 2006 Share Posted January 15, 2006 I have just made a huge jump into power pc's after years of fiddling with moderately priced rigs and am in the process of actually building my second rig. After having done a bit of research I made the purchases I thought would be best, but then I was researching further prior to delivery of parts and found some information I wasnt aware of as far as the PSU is concerned with DDR2 required specifications about complying with EPS 12v. The PSU I ordered is not labeled as EPS specifically, (PSU: Thermaltake W0073RU PurePower PST520W Series 520W Power Supply w/Active PFC), so I was hoping someone could tell me if it would be sufficient for the Corsair TWINX 2X1048-5400C4 DDR2 RAM, or do I need to insure the EPS specification by purchasing one that actually says it does indeed conform? And, since this is only my second build ANY other advice as far as compatability issues would be greatly appreciated. The specs are as follows... MOBO: Asus P5WD2 Premium 955X P4/Celeron 1066FSB LGA775 DDR2 CPU: Intel Pentium® D Processor 830 3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB, Socket 775, 2x1MB Cache, Dual Core RAM:Corsair TWIN2X1048-5400C4 2GB DDR2-667 XMS2-5400 Xtreme Performance PSU: Thermaltake W0073RU PurePower PST520W Series 520W Power Supply w/Active PFC Graphics: Asus Extreme N6800XT/HTD GeForce 6800XT PCI Express 256MB DDR Video Card w/HDTV, DVI-I & Dual VGA HDD: Western Digital Caviar Special Edition WD2000JB 200GB Ultra ATA/100 7200RPM DVD writer: Sony DRU-810A Internal Double Layer DVD±RW DVDROM:Liteon SOHD-16P9S 16X IDE DVD-ROM I've spent a small amount of time reading the threads here and I have to risk being depicted as an **** kisser but I would like to give THE RAM GUY my applause, my hat is off to you sir. Suggestions from anyone are truly appreciated. Thanks to all. :roll: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
