Does the hdplex 400w share the same pin layout as a corsair sf450? If they were then cables for the sf450 would be compatible with the 400w right?
Because its not us/eu compliant. It would be irresponsible to promote some untested electrical devices.
Gury would have to get certificates made bur they cost a lot
Just FYI, you may be in different time zone than him. It is maybe not 12th December at his time yet.Hello everybody :-) i want to ask you people for a little help, i have ordered a HDPLEX DCATX400W 20 days ago. Exact date is 22/11/12 , my order still not processed, i received a mail from larry at 4 dec where he writes that he will ship my order around dec 12th. Today is 12 dec and i can see the order still not processed and i get no any answers from larry, Is this normal ?
Again, everything is at stock settings. It runs fine until I run a benchmark or game, then it reboots. I've updated all drivers and bios, but no luck.
isnt it drawing too much power? the cpu could be turbo bosting as well. maybe try disable turbo bost and run benchmark again?
acording to outervision calculator it might be pulling 350w or more with cpu at 4.2ghz.
I've read that the i7-8700 draws the same wattage and has almost the same performance as the i7-7700k.
I don't know if it is true.
Is your brick a Dell 300w or 330w?
I've seen a lot of Chinese fake bricks, they seem the same, but are not.
Do you have a way to test it?
That's my main issue when planning what to use to power my future pc.
I thought you had an 8700, but it's great you have work it out!Seems I might have a bad Dell 330w power supply. The bad one seemed to crash at around ~240w load. I swapped that brick out for an identical one (also from Amazon) and it seems to be more stable, at least up to a modest overclock. Unfortunately, I had already swapped out the GTX 1080 for a 1070, so I can't test much beyond 250w without rebuilding the system yet again.
Just for others' interest, I'm running the 7700 at stock 3. 6 GHz (boost to 4.2 GHz) and the GTX 1070 overclocked to 1581 MHz. The whole system draws about 40w at idle and ~240w max in Heaven and games running at 1440p ultra settings. Temps were max 80 C on the CPU and 76 C on the GPU. Runs very quiet at those settings with the MSI GTX 1070 mini.
I don't trust the Dell bricks I bought on Amazon anymore. I plan to return them and buy a new one directly from Dell. In the meantime I'll probably run some more tests and maybe go back to the 1080 since it seems like 330w should cover it. I lost count of how many times I've rebuilt the system at this point...
Thanks again for the feedback.
The "DC input socket" included was mentioned in the article, but is this directly compatible with e.g. Dell 330W brick? Someone is selling 400W hdplex with 330W Dell here, but takes his time answering PMs. I wouldnt want to solder any wires unless thats really necessary.
And could the 330W brick be enough for R7-1700+1080Ti if I undervolted the GPU? Getting a separate more powerful brick would be too expensive and/or hard ... and then I would just go SF600 which I have already bought.
