Alright, I have an FSP400, so it's time to open her up and adjust the pots.
My 12V rail under loads goes down to 11.5-11.6v which is not acceptable for me at all. I've been doing a lot of reading and it looks like most of the juice comes from the 12V rail, that and the 5v which is just fine on mine. It stays at 5.13v most of the time, lowest it's ever gone is 5.07 or so.
The max my 12v has ever been is around 11.9 and average is 11.8. So I figure I'll bump it up atleast 0.2v. I'm thinking more. How high can I safely go? Would 12.2v be safe to have it at normally since under load it'd go down to 12v? I think that it'd be safe, and I plan on doing that unless if anyone objects.
Now for pots. I havn't openned this PSU, and I've never seen a pot. Does anyone have pictures? Does anyone know which is which off hand in the sparkle 400? I figure I'll sit in my BIOS and watch the voltages and slowly adjust them. I can do this with a screwdriver I'm told, correct? Does anyone have any suggestions when I do this?
I'm also thinking of getting a new cover for the PSU that has a 120mm fan hole on it to help cool it. Currently it just has one exhaust, 80mm on it blowing out the back. The extra fan would just be for fun, but maybe it'll actually do good.
Alright, can you guys help answer those questions for me?
I posted this on OCF, but no one feels like reading any threads created by me over there, or they dont know how to reply. I really need some advice XStreme!
