    Would psu be ok on my intel quad??

    Hi i just won a new thermal take psu on ebay for a pretty good price,on the description it says -140mm silent fan
    amd/intel dual core support
    atx 12v 2.2 version
    would this be ok for my quad core 8200??

    just needed a better psu than whats already in my pre built pc


    thanks

    anyone?

    Intel 8200 has a TDP rating of 95W so if the PSU has a rating that is above 95W minus around 25% then it should be fine. I specify subtracting 75% because no PUS is 100% efficient and around 25% is wasted as heat (this equates to 75% efficiency).

    Of course you need to factor into other components in your computer. You havn't specified the model number or the power rating and what components are in your computer. The model number would give an indication of the efficiency - good models have around 80-85%(15-20% wasted as heat) efficiency and poorer models are about 70% efficiency (30% wasted as heat). The cheap models also have issues with sustaining power over a certain wattage but Thermal Take models should be fine.

    The components also has a bearing on the power required for a CPU. If you simply have the usual hard drive, RAM and optical drive with a few USB devices and the Q8200 CPU, then 350W and higher CPU should be sufficient (depending on efficiency) but 400W will be better if using a cheap PSU. If you are using high end graphics, you will need a higher rating CPU and again this depends on the TDP rating of the graphics card.

    If you can provide the power output and model number of the PSU I can give a simple yes/no answer.

    No problems at all. With a 9800GT it may tax the PSU but total power of the components in your PC should still be within the PSU's limits.
