A year ago i purchased an Enermax350W
http://www.enermax.com.tw/eg365p-ve-fma.htm

Around September i decided to go for watercooling as my HHC-001 was driving me crazy.

Now that i have a Thermaltake Xaser3 case with front dual 120mm Panaflo L1A mounted on rad running with 4pin, 3 80mm Smart Case Fans by thermaltake running on my mboard headers.

Dvd-rom, cd-rw and 2 WD 120gig drives using coolermaster drive cooler with 1 fan. http://www.coolermaster.com.hk/product_ ... duct_id=30

Too finish off i have a UV cold-cathode.

Is there a chance im over stressing my PSU? Any way to determine how much my components are draining power?

Thanks for the gr8 forum :)

Very unlikely you are stressing the PSU, read the Sticky.

If we take ~70% efficiency from AC to DC, then 350W would be approximately 245w DC, which is a heck of a lot.

A very high spec PC will consume less than 150W DC..

Actually, the 350W rating IS the DC power output. If this PSU was supplying full DC power at 70% efficiency the AC draw would be more like 500W.

EDIT -- corrected 50%; should be 70%!
