    Currently I have a blue UV(or LED) light running on a DC/AC adapter which gains its power via the PSU. I just installed a PCI card that offers 2 fans and built-in blue LEDs, which also gains its power from the PSU. After I booted up, my original light isn't nearly as bright. Is it possible that I don't have enough wattage to keep it bright? Is it possible that I damaged it somehow while I was redoing cables and whatnot? Is it possible that it simply wore out, its lifespan complete? I've had it running for about 2 years, and I keep my pc on most of the time. Any help would be appreciated. How could I test it or something? Maybe I just rewired the powering wrong? It's hard to do that though...

    I'm fairly sure my PSU is 630W, but I'm not compeltely certain. Any way to quickly check this? I tried PC Wizard, System Info, Device Manager, and CPU-Z, but none seem to tell the actual wattage.

    The only way to find the wattage of a PSU is to look at the PSU label or the documentation.
