BoomerD Posted August 3, 2007 Share Posted August 3, 2007 I'm looking (and seriously considering) the Corsair 620HX as my replacement. One concern I have though is that my current system: Intel Pentium 4 Northwood 3.06/533 (BX80532PE3066DSL6PG) (stock clocks) ZALMAN CNPS7700-CU 120mm CPU cooler ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe Visiontek Xtasy Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition AGP (stock clocks) SoundBlaster LIVE! With “breakout-box” front panel 3X512mb DDR400 RAM (soon to be 2X1 gb and 2X512mb) Seagate 250 gb SATA HDD SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner Toshiba 6X DVD-ROM Iomega Zip 250 Drive Floppy drive (unknown) 6-80mm case fans (yep, sounds like a 747 sitting next to me...(planning on adding quieter fans with this upgrade as well) I only have 1 SATA drive at this time, and NO PCI-E devices. Will I be able to power everything with the supplied cabling? It'd be nice, since so much of the 12+ is built for PCI-E, to get either adapters that would let me use molex connectors on them, or even a cable from Corsair that makes that adaption for me. While my current power needs (based on various PSU calculators) range from about 350 watts to nearly 500 watts...(every calculator is different, and none give me the exact options of my system) the 620 should more than serve my current needs, (I definitely would rather have more power supply than I need, than to need more than I have!) I'm not at all against buying a PSU in the 750-850 watt range to meet future expansion needs. (HOPEFULLY next year) with one of the new Intel quad-core processors, new mobo, new RAM, and (at least 1) new PCI-E video card. Also, I hope to add a 2nd SATA HDD with that upgrade. Thanks.
