ENERMAX 1KW PSU fails to power 8800 GT
Local forum member Faiakes ran into some problems when he bought a new 8800 GT, replacing his older overclocked 8800 GTS Video card. It seems his multi rail Enermax 1KW PSU is unable to provide enough juice to power his system with the new 8800 GT inside.

It's been a very frustrating affair.
Now I have to spend my money RMAing the heavy PSU back to Enermax UK. We'll see if the issue gets resolved by providing a new Galaxy DXX (I doubt).

PSU with 5x12V rails will work too, if properly designed that is.
The downside, I think it makes a PSU just more complex then a single rail PSU with propper decoupling, allthough that the latter could be very dangerous if impropperly manufactured.

Today I got the Enermax PSU back.
Connected everything, pushed the button...no luck.
Exactly the same situation.
I did notice, however, something flashing at the back of the Striker. This just made my day. I get the CPU INIT error...
if you don't know what it is, check this thread.
It would appear that the Striker might have had more to do with the issue than previously thought.
