PSU Advice: Delta X750W

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Heyo lads,

Just wanted to get a bit of quick advice from the PSU buffs around,

I have my current PSU just about 2 years now, and it seems to be performing fine still, but iv notice it buzzes faintly the past few months (or at least ive noticed it since then).

I've little to no experience with power supplies tbh, Wanted to know if you think its a good idea to update it? i can't even seem to find the PSU online anymore. Id rather not of course as its a pain in the err backside, any input is appreciated.

If anyone knows if Delta is a decent quality PSU it would also be good to know, i know they make alot of electrical stuff, and fans etc but im not so sure about power supplies.

Thanks.

The buzzing noise can just come with aging capaciters and/or the fan on it's way out. Use the unit til it dies, unless your worried. If your worried then update if it will settle your mind.

Thanks for your reply,
I'll probably update it next time i can afford then, as i've heard a dieing PSU can kamakazi and bring other components out with it when it dies? lol, Im not sure if it is dieing, but better safe then sorry i suppose.

As if im going to get a new one, id rather just make sure i fork out for a good quality one. Thanks again, appreciated. +1

Glad to have helped you. Usually if a PSU dies then nothing else will go with it. On a rare instance, i have only ever seen the motherboard but like i said, not much chance of that mate.

Delta is a higher-tier OEM, most famous for the quality of their Server units ... although, like many OEM's, they have some platforms that are, um ... not the best.

Their higher-powered units are almost always good quality though. The venerable Antec Signature line, to this day still one of the very finest in terms of the quality of it's power delivery (efficiency is another story), are Delta-built. And for a long time they were the OEM for 'Dell' branded PSU's that Dell put in all the desktop and server machines they sold. They might still be, actually.

It's very unlikely that a Delta is going to take out other components on its 'way out', if in fact it even IS ... on its way out. Sometimes PSU's make odd noises that don't mean anything bad, other than maybe that the fan is going bad.

So, if it were me, I'd keep using it, maybe open 'er up and test the fan if you're not concerned about voiding the warranty.

Thanks alot for the reply/ease of mind

Its Just buzzing so far as i know, and the fan seems to be working well (at the moment) when i open the case and have a look whilst the machine is on.

Thanks again.
