I dont know if powerstrip will work on PCI cards, but if it does, you're in business.
edit: accidentally? kinda hard not to notice WIDESCREEN in big letters of some sort, or at least from the images. how about a return?

lol i wasnt sarcastic at all seriously, it really did help. However, the poster below did say that he's doing fine with a cheap 350w PSU w/16A on the 12v rail, while if I followed correctly, the guide in your sig suggests an S12-500 or an Enermax Liberty 500w. It does seem suspicious that these 500w...

how much power do i need?

I've recently been VERY confused around with PSUs. The S12 series recommended here seems awesome, but the power ratings just don't impress because an S12-430 has 14A/15A on the 12v rail and a $50 fortron has 18A on each rail. I guess it has something to do with peak power ratings and continuous ones...

I already plan to use some 120mm led coolermasters which get very bright, but having a blue led on top, in the power supply would provide a nice angle of illumination. Some people might suggest cold cathodes, but if I wanted that, I'd do it in a heartbeat. A bar of light is a lot less cooler than le...

I was thinking about that, but it seems that most PSU's have a 2-pin fan connector and the fans I can buy online ANYWHERE have 3 or 4 pins for power. I haven't heard of such thing as a 2-pin to anypin adapter, so if you could guide me to some fan swapping in PSUs that'd be great.(I already read the ...

I was wondering because the PSUs I'm looking at either have one or the other. The UPS I was going to buy is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16842101002 My assumption is that without PFC is greatly increases the load on the UPS meaning shorter battery life, but I don't care a...

if u dont have any intake fans, it obviously is going to reach erroneously high temps. I would think those temps are shortening the life of your card.

it's obviously not the samsung drive's fault if it doesn't 'beat' when one of the seagates are removed. You should just get some softer grommets and it'll work.

whoo thx for the info. Almost bought the thing for my p150. So you recommend the gaskets for the back of the case? Or the things from jab-tech for closed corners is good? In the review, it said that there wasn't much effect when the gasket was used, but I guess it's better than hard mounting.
