good afternoon to all,
just few days ago a closed friend of mine bought a new pc with an amd athlon x4 860k-3.7 ghz
motherboard is the gigabyte ga-f288x-dh3 with a kinston 120 gb ssd drive and 4 gb of corsair ddr3 ram with integrated garphics
mid tower is the raijintek arcadiia
with my little experience all the above parts are branded and quite good but....
the psu is just a force 500 watts (no name psu ?)
dr-8500 btx (max. 500 watts)
+3.3 volts output 22a
+5.5 volts output 16a
+12v1 output is 15a
+12.2v2 output s 16a
-12v 0 output is 0.8a
+5vsb output is 2.5a
+5v & +3.3v combines 130w
+5v & +3.3v & +12v combines 480w
quite strange for a pc like this..to have such as cheap psu !
i have told to my friend that his psu is not good and after a conversation who had with the seller he explain him that the psu is more than enough for his pc !!!
he also mentioned that this no name psu is very reliable since all the electronic parts meet those european and international standards and he do not have to worry
the psu have two years warranty
the seller also mentioned that those cheap psu are not so bad as many people believe and he pointed out that if there some reviews about them then people will go out and buy them...
this force psu can work within "it's limits" and for as good as 100,000 hours
-end of the conversation...
my friend is waiting for your advice please
many thanks in advance
