Re: do I need a new power supply

said by watts3000:

Guys as of right now I have 7 hard drives installed in our file server I will be adding 4 more for a total of 11. Right now I'm running an Antec Earthwatts 380 watt power supply btw the cpu that's installed is a core2duo 1.86 and I have no optical drives installed. So my question is do you all think I can pull 4 more drives on this 380 or is it time to upgrade the power supply?

You would be pushing the power supply, depending on how old it is. I would upgrade to at least a 550W unit of quality just to be sure.
