pws in my system is 350watt or 400watt its been while since i looked i just bought a new case as the power button on the case plastic broke and i could not replace it, I think i got the 400watt in the new case but im to lazy to open it and look so it could be 350watt
Ssseth is right Nforce has been know not to work well with IDE UDMA on burners.
Also part of my good luck is im Zebra mod beta tester and not using v4 but not released and if jitter doesnt get back soon never to be released v5-6 beta.
this beta takes the v4 mod and edits the cal data for 6x reducing its level so you dont see that hill on the 6x area, it also changes the way the laser bias level is done im my 401s@811s im using test eeprom_Y, i have been lead to understand that this eeprom has the laser bias set to high. At any rate eeprom_Y of the v5-6 beta test set for me with HSOK firmware, works wonders.
Btw I just want to state for the record that I dont have the patch for the v5-6 Z mod'ed the eeproms and emailed them to the tester with no patch because he didnt want any leaks till we knew if the laser bias would fry a drive, so far almost 4 weeks with v5-6 beta, not fried yet.
My take on HSOP its got bugs, and it acts funny on some drives on mine it gives much higher error level on all dvd burns. It also seems to make noises on reboot. I dont know about you but if f/w makes more noise on reboot and sometimes while reading, i tend to want to leave it alone.
