I can't answer that. I'm not meaning to scare you, but as a Tech I see way too often the problems caused by cheapo power supplies. I absolutely refuse to sell them to my customers. When they complain about the price of a quality PSU as a replacement, I mention that we don't want the issues to happen again, right?

For some reason, my boss here at the shop has a Codegen 825W thing in stock, it was here when I started, and I absolutely refuse to sell it for him. I order in better ones and sell those instead. It's still sitting in the box on the shelf, collecting dust... :) And I just had a quick look at it, it has 2 +12V rails for a total of 37A output - remember this is apparently an 825W PSU! Look up a quality PSU like the Corsair 750W and see what the +12V rail amperage is... :)

Glad to hear it, it may have been a bit more expensive but you won't regret it... :)

Feel free to post some pics if you like.

Cheers
