Its just that some of the info is a bit out of date:

-Fan clips are now standard
-compatible with socket775
-s-clip is standard, allows for rotation on k8 platforms

Thermalright v1 passive on x800xl

Hi, ive been a semi lurker here for about a year (w00t 7 posts) Anyway, would it be possible to run a thermalright v1 (non ultra) passively on an agp x800xl? This guy said it could, but i really want some confirmation (im intending on running an si120 with this and the fan most probably wont fit) Or...

Look at this:

Nexus 350w

+3.3v-22A
+5v-21A
+12v1-10A
+12v2-15A
+5vsb-2A
-12v-0.3A

The 12v configuration looked very similiar to my antec 350 sp-II, so I took a hike to the antec website, and look what i found:

+3.3v-22A
+5v-21A
+12v1-10A
+12v2-15A
+5vsb-2A

Any PSU with 30A 5v will be fine, 30x5=150w, so your covered up till 150w on the cpu give or take, and I doubt many AXP's will draw over 120w overclocked heavily.

MGE isnt really known for good PSU's, they rebadge "YoungYear" PSU's, and the quality can be questionable.

Seasonic for the win!
