TX-750 dying, Get a New PSU? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
May I suggest the antec Truepower New 650w and 750w. It is very recommeded by our psu guru Phaedrus http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...ml#post9479037 . They are better than the TX series in price and performance. I used 2 of the 750w Truepower New in 2 of my builds and am very happy with it. Unfortunately they raised the price up to $130 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-022-_-Product but the 650w is still $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-021-_-Product which is plenty for your sig rig. They are manufactered by Seasonic, one of the best OEMs in the psu industry.

No need to trash it. if it has a problem just RMA it. thats what the warranty is for. Corsair is one of the best brands there is

JonnyGuru and HardOCP recommended
Fan only turns on when it gets hotter than sixty something degrees C.

Someone can give me a good reason not to get this???
Please do not get that KINGWIN psu. The Kingwin brand is hit or miss. some of their products are good some are horrid. Also they are OVERPRICE, $150 for a 550w? Thats ridiculous. Either RMA ur psu or get a antec Truepower. Like I said a 650w Truepower New can be had for $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-021-_-Product and is one of the best 650w psu out there. Also this unit is Partially MODULAR which I believe was what you was looking for.

It's $150 because the unit performs well. I'm currently reading the JonnyGuru and HardOCP reviews on it. Jonny gave it a 10/10 in performance.

Quote:
Performance (40% of the final score) - when the Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W arrived at my house, I figured it would sacrifice performance for extreme efficiency. I figured wrong. Not only is this little guy exceptionally efficient, it's also quite the workhorse. It doesn't mind getting hot, it regulates like a beast, and is among the best units I've tested for ripple and noise suppression. I'm having trouble seeing a downside, here. Is it the best performance of all the units I've ever seen? No. But, it's close enough for me to want to reward Kingwin with a nice shiny 10 today.

- JonnyGuru
Basically:

The Good:
  • unbelievably efficient
  • very low ripple and noise
  • better than 1% regulation on all main rails
  • goes fanless at low temps and even some higher temps

The Bad:
  • high MSRP
(It costs as much as I'm willing to spend)

You were absolutely right here. Rep+

I had the kingwin platinum in my cart but I could not
pull the trigger. I am more of a bang for your buck person at heart. I purchased the Antec TPN 650w.
