[Newegg] $35/$20 AR - Antec Basiq BP430 PSU - $35 after promo/$20 AR

Promo is EMCKFHB35; promo & rebate end May 4

The PSU is 80+ certified and looks like a great unit! Better than a Corsair CX430 for the price. Not recommending it for high TDP CPU/graphics card though.

5830 TDP - 175W
Phenom II x4 840 TDP - 95W
That is 270W on the 12V rail already. Counting fans mobo chipset etc. you would probably end up at 320-370W. 12V max load is 384W. Decent unit with 80+ so I think you should be fine but when you consider other things you might do such as overclock it might just not be adequate anymore... anyone else with tips on this? I'm no expert on PSUs, but I do know that Antec Basiq is the low end line.

This PSU should only be used for office computers. If you want to do any gaming, then please get something better for the love (and safety) of your system.

They are the low end line and it's probably best to leave these PSUs for a budget, very low power build.

Here's phaedrus's view on them:

I don't want to imply that everything FSP makes is crap; they can generate some solidly mediocre stuff too when they try. But these are crap even by FSP's standards. They're not the worst PSUs in the world, but they're pretty bad, and the price tag for these "budget" models... All I can say is stay away. They're like the one big, ugly, festering pimple on the cheek of the otherwise smokin' hot chick that is Antec. It's best to pretend they don't exist.

Alright. Still decent efficiency, probably very good for more basic builds i.e. iGPU. This compared to a CX430? Better or worse? It's considerably cheaper.

TDP is not a real value of the power the chip consumes. That's gonna be at around 200 watts on full load with no over-clock; 230 with. Accounting for 82% efficiency, that's only 165W-190W the PSU has to deliver. It's alright for the setup.

However, there's really not much point in getting this when the vastly superior Xigmatek NRP-PC402 is available for the same price.

The CX430 is not a good Corsair unit, but it's much better than the Basiq.

I would say he'd be fine, but as far as quality goes the earthwatts 380 is better then this psu. I didn't think the Basiq series were 80+ previously.
