I believe that Xigmatek is an HEC built.... also no free shipping/rebate
I posted this for the great deal, not intending to recommend it to anyone with high end parts

Yeah, it's fine for a basic build. CX430>this. Everyone gave the CX430 crap because of the switch from seasonic but it's actually a decent unit that's capable of its rating. Oh, the good old days when the CX430 was $15.

This.

Friends don't let friends use Antec's Basiq PSUs unless it's for a simple internet/e-mail computer.

Yeah this would be an excellent deal if you happen to need a PSU replacement for an old PC or are getting something with integrated graphics/etc.

A good HEC unit, I may add. One of the best budget PSUs to have come out. It delivers 32A from the 12V rail and has a good selection of components in the internals.

Rebates? Really? Who bothers with them anymore?

Per what Phaedrus2129 said in that quote, I believe they switched from FSP to Delta for the Anteq Basic over a year ago, at least that's what some Googling and this thread led me to believe.

Oh boy. Delta unit, that means we have a winner

Rebates can work. Rebates are how I got an Antec 300 for $10 here in Canada. Sure, took awhile to come, but when it came... WIN

Yes.

Actually, the Antec BP500 got a good review on hardwaresecrets.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...y-Review/792/7

The 500w was able to pull over 600watts with 75% efficiency. When it pulls <500 watts, it's over 80% efficiency.

"Ripple and noise levels were low at all times.

In summary, if you are building a basic or intermediate PC and want a power supply that will do the job and, at the same time, provides decent efficiency, great voltage stability, low ripple and noise levels and protections that work, you can save money by buying Antec Basiq BP500U"


So the Basiq line are actually pretty decent PSUs. At least the 500w, and not the 350w, which doesn't have active PFC.
post #19 of 21
That may not necessarily mean that the 430W Basiq is decent. I mean sometimes only one PSU in a series is good while the rest aren't. My favorite example of that is the OCZ StealthXStream series: all of them suck while the 400W model is actually pretty much the best 400W power supply available.

Here's phaedrus's view on them:
Phaedrus' information is old and outdated.

This and the CX430 are equal in terms of the power they output and the quality of it.

Vastly superior? I think not; the capacitor choice is the only thing better. DC Output quality is poor & build quality is poor.

The CX430 is only better in the regards of cable length and because the cables are fully sleeved.

The BP430 & CX430 both have about equal (but pretty good) DC output quality.

It's not a good HEC unit; the 12v ripple is borderline out of spec at 110mv

No they don't; the build quality is just average and the performance is just average. That's why they're moderately priced units.
