No, it's not. The 750 Watt of your PSU is the maximum limit of your PSU on all rails combined. Each rail has its own power limit, which is 62 Amps in case of the 12 V rail. The other rails can be ignored in regards to the CPU (12 V is the only one that matters).Kol12 said:The CPU alone drawing 50-80 Amps is the whole of my PSU's 750W and more.
Power (Watt) is the product of current and voltage, or expressed mathematically, Power = Current * Voltage. You always have to take both voltage and current into account when talking/thinking about power.I know there is something I'm missing I just haven't got it yet. :/
Try this one, input 1.3V and 60A, then click calculate:Kol12 said:@Dalai I'm sure what you say is correct it is just very confusing. :-/ Obviously I need to do some electrical study to better understand this.
Power = Voltage * Amperage
744 Watts = 12 Volts * 62 Amps
744 Watts = 1.2 Volts * 620 Amps
74.4 Watts = 1.2 Volts * 62 Amps
