    I have the 645W version of that Supermicro case (agree with Pat's praise) and I have 9 hard drives running, the power supply does it's job just great and also I have a Quadro FX 3450- so the point is- you don't need an 800W, just a stable 600W+. I'd say your power supply just isn't as good as the Supermicro ones.

      Ah ... thanks for the education. That makes perfect sense to me. Once I did see the service engineer pull out one side of my power supply when he had to diagnose some minor problems. So - it is 800 watts power then.


      Have you tested your Quadro card on another machine? Maybe your card is faulty?

      Or your wire connecting the power supply unit to the Quadro card might be loose?

      I have tested the quadro card on a Dell PC and, infortunately for me, it works very well.
      May be I have to change my power supply, or I should reinstall WinXp Pro and all the softs, because... I used the same "install" when I have changed my motherboard (from X7DA8 to X7DAE).
      I bought my Quadro card online and I sent it back for an exchange with a PNY Quadro FX 1500, which Does not need one PCI express power connector.

        Hi Chabi,

        What do you mean by 'you used the same ""install"' when you switched motherboard? If I understand you, you just swap the motherboard using the same device drivers for the old motherboard. You didn't install Windows again from the installation disk. If you have done that, I am EXTREMELY surprised that Windows can even boot up. The new motherboard's h/w resources are MOST unlikely to be the same as the older one. No wonder you got into this problem. You have to install a new Windows image on a new motherboard each time (unless the new motherboard is identical to the old one).

        And you will have to be prepared to convince the gods of Microsoft that you are installing the Windows on a new replacement machine and get them to reset the activation settings on their server.

        I don't think the problem now lies with your power supply. It is your Windows settings. I am sorry - but, you will have to spend time to install a new copy of Windows and all your programs again on the new motherboard.
