Aspire AX1430G Motherboard (D1F-AD v1.0) Power Requirements

I am wondering what the maximum amperage the motherboard(D1F-AD v1.0) in the Aspire AX1430G can take without burning up.

 

The stock PSU specs are:                                +3.3V|16A, +5V|16A, +12V|16A,            -12V|0.3A, and +5Vsb|2A

The specs for the PSU I want to use are:           +3.3V|20A, +5V|20A, +12V|(1)8A(2)14A, -12V|0.8A, and +5Vsb|2A

 

Would it be safe to use that one?

It doesn't matter. As long as the items inside your PC need less power than the total of your power supply, you'll be OK!

Hi _Kyle_1

 

You can use pretty much any power supply with any mobo, providing it fits in the case!

 

A large power supply, say 900 watts, would not burn up your motherboard or graphics card or even the hard drive. They just take the power they need!

 

Hope this helps!

I was wondering about the amperage, not the wattage, but I guess it works the same.
