QUOTE(TheReturnOfAZ @ Jul 26 2005, 11:30 PM)i think theyres one rail for the cards or something?
i dont know its crazy people explain how its better and i guess dividing it makes sense but WHATEVER these headaches get worse and worse the longer i read these forums

People use split rails for water cooling setups, It is really a waste on the Tegan as it doesnt have the horsepower that the Powestream has.

EDIT cool signature athlonfx i bet it looks a lot better when the file size limit is not in place, allowing it to get more than 5fps...

No X2, lol, wasnt buying what most people do
Most people get processor board and ram and maybe a card.

I had to get card, ram, processor, board, case, keyboard, sound card, speakers, mouse, etc.

and you know this how? the tagan has 2 20A 12v rails the 600W Powerrstream has a 20A and a 18A 12v rails so plz show some proof on your statement, and dont say its because it has 600W, wattage doesnt mean anything anymore.

QUOTEQUOTE FROM THG
"After comprehensive analysis of all components we identified the source of the problem. The Tagan-built power supply TG480-U22 delivered a standby voltage of 5V, however could not be turned on again. Our test engineers suspected the Tagan device to be the problem already the day before, since the system demonstrated similar behavior then. Our power supply test station finally cleared any doubts and confirmed this device to be the problem's origin. The failed component from Tagan will stay in THG's test lab in Munich until the end of the test and can be reviewed by the manufacturer.

Tagan's weaknesses are not new to us. A total of five power supplies suddenly failed in our labs during the past year. A newly designed and rubberized casing is unlikely to improve the reliability of the devices.

We substituted the TG480-U22 with an Antec NEO480. The system has been running again since 12:12 pm EST.
"


Put a load on both those rails and she cant handle it as well as the OCZ Powerstream which is a better built PSU.
