    thanks for the info :)
  • pa OT lang,

  • Kung malapit ka sa cubao - dun sa farmers mall 4th floor - may shop dun na taiwanese yung owner bandang dulo from the escalator. Dami nila molex adapters I'm sure meron dun. They also sell Aerocool cpu fans there with molex and 3 pin connectors.

  • Mga ka TPC,

    Good Day!

    Nagpost ako kamakailan lang about sa isang obsolete na PSU hihingi sana ako ulit ng tulong sa inyo kung may nakakaalam ng PSU pic na nakapost or equivalent.

    Nagawa ko ng tawagan yung OEM kaso obsolete na nga kaya di na sila nagsusupply at wala na rin silang equivalent, baka pwedeng makahingi ng tulong na either the same make and model or equivalent specs na BRAND NEW.

    Salamat TPC

    Hello Team,

    I am not really sure if I am on the right place or not but if I am not please do direct me to the right one - Thanks in Advanced!

    My question goes like this:

    Do you know anyone who sells SP302-TS Ablecom Brand PSU specs are as follows;

    300watts, 100-240v, 6amp, 50/60hz, Output rating is 3.3v/5v/12v

    Yet if there's any better equivalent specs on a different brand please let me know at least known brands out in the market maybe you could give me at least 5 examples on an equivalent specs or a bit better price and where to buy.

    Again to those who will be able to provide info I thank you in advance :)


    NOTE:

    Yes this is for a server and a workstation unit :)

  • ^ Sir, please resize those pictures. Meron po tayong guidelines kung hanggang anong size lang po ng pictures ang puedeng i-post sa forums. Please be guided accordingly.
  • Sorry my bad. Lemme resize em. Thanks for the feedback, I thought twas as I though coz I left my desk right away.
  • Nagfiflicker po yung light ng switch ng PSU ko at may tumutunog na parang nagsspark. Is this dangerous? Hindi ko po kasi alam ang dapat gawin sa gantong scenario. Please help.

    TIA!
  • @erich

    Check the psu power cable. Malamang maluwag yan.
  • Up for my post.. lookin for some assistance.

    TIA
  • parecommend naman po ng PSU range 1k-2k 500-650w,mas ok if modular...TIA
  • @zromeo30

    parecommend naman po ng PSU range 1k-2k 500-650w,mas ok if modular...TIA


    Wala pong okay na semi/full-modular 500-650W PSU sa price range na yan sir. You need at least 3,300 for a Seasonic M12II-520 EVO.
  • hi all,

    question lang po.
    magkaka-problem ba ako sa fanless PSU if isolated sya sa ibang components?
    bale walang positive air flow na dadaan sa vents nya.


    460w fanless
    i5-3570
    IGP
    1SSD
    1HD

    max na siguro 100watts consumption

    Thanks!
  • aRTie
    san ba nakalagay ang PSU meron kasing top mounted at bottom mounted na PSU na case eh
  • @silentorange

    mejo iba yung case ko sir. bottom mounted psu pero secluded sya sa ibang components

    External Image


    galing sa bottom yung supposedly intake then diretso palabas yung exhaust. enclosed sya ng metal so hindi sya nadadaanan ng air flow sa case
  • aRTie
    kailangan mo ireverse ang mounting nyan para makakuha kahit papaano ng airflow ang psu kasi kung ganyan ang orientation asahan mo walang hangin na dadaan dyan
  • ^walang ibang possible orientation sir. yung nasa picture lang na arrows yung intake and exhaust.
    enclosed ng metal yung compartment ng psu. isolated sa rest of components.

    back to my question, magkaka-problem po kaya ako sa 460w fanless psu at 20% load considering walang hanging na mapu-push sa vents ng psu?
  • ^ Wala naman di naman gano stress ang PSU dyan
  • oks. salamat sir silentorange!

    Don't know kasi if 20% max load is enough to produce heat that could cause problem if walang airflow sa PSU
  • ^ nagproproduce ng heat yan kahit mababa ang load pero di ganong kainit para mag cause ng pagkasira
    ika nga Higher Load = More heat produce
  • @aRTie

    hi all,

    question lang po.
    magkaka-problem ba ako sa fanless PSU if isolated sya sa ibang components?
    bale walang positive air flow na dadaan sa vents nya.


    For fanless PSUs, recommended na nasa taas yung exhaust since heat rises. Medyo alanganin yung fanless PSUs sa case mo (FT03 ba yan sir?) since maiipon yung init sa mismong PCB/components ng PSU. Not sure kung makakatulong yung isang 120mm fan (yung naka-diagonal yung puwesto, sa tabi ng PSU compartment) to push the hot air inside the PSU towards the PSUs rear vent.

    Nakabili ka na ba ng 460W fanless PSU (Seasonic ba yan sir? The older Gold or newer Platinum version?)? Naghahanap din kasi ako niyan eh, walang stock kahit sa Helix mismo.
  • @Helly

    tama ka sir, FT03 yung case. hindi pa naman ako nakabili, meron lang akong nakita sa ifs na used pero hindi rin naman nagre-reply yung seller. gusto ko lang sana i-try

    hindi ko naman kasi habol talaga yung silent operation, low wattage and full modular lang actually. In my case, I think i'm better off with m12ii 520 Evo

    thanks sa input!
