Mobo power stabilization ??

  1. Hi

    Going for my 2nd ever mobo install,
    this one into a new case & new power supply.

    Going ASUS P4C800-E and a P4 Northwood

    Reading up on the board, I noted it might be
    a good investment to make sure the power
    supply voltage is stable, to avoid spikes.

    I then found a main power cable that has a
    large capacitor wired into it to absorb voltage

    Is this a valid concern and a worthwhile investment?
    Only a few $.

    If $ is not a problem this capacitor cannot hurt.You did not state the make and model so I can't comment .
    Generally , any brand name power bar with voltage surge protection will be fine .Look for the brands that offer a warranty covering your equipment replacement is a good bet.
