    New PSU - TriCaster 460

    Hi...

    I'm about to change our powersupply for our TriCaster 460 to a new one (the fan makes an annoying sound a few minutes after startup).
    We recently got a new PSU from our reseller (sent to them from NewTek).
    What I can see now is that our old PSU is 500W, and the new recommended is a 430W. How come?

    According to the specs for the TC 460 it says 430W, but why was there a 500W installed in the first place?
    Is there a reason there is a "hardware downgrade" of the PSU?

    Best regards

    There are times where part changes occur because a supplier it out of stock and another brand/model needs to be substituted. The TC460 probably only uses ~125 watts normally, so 430W supply is multiple times more than what is needed for operation. It not like a 500w power supply made the system run faster, just allowed more power *IF* the unit had need of it.

    Thanks Kanep.
    The old PSU is replaced and we're going start up the system shortly (after re-gluing all the SATA-connectors), however with your info I feel quite calm...
