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?

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.

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!
