Need new PSU, please help advise on Cyberpower Build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi all, first post on this forum so go easy on me

I have a Cyberpower build and it doesn't have a modular PSU, and so is preventing me from upgrading my system.

First upgrade, I am getting an ATI 1GB 4870 with third party cooling from a member of family, and it should own this passivly cooled card I have at the moment (in fact, it will wipe the floor with it).

Can you advise on a good budget PSU?

I am looking at this atm, a Coolermaster, same product line as my brothers and his has been going strong for 3 years

I mainly play minecraft and COD, want a fan controller and a new hard drive, but can't have this with the current own brand PSU

Thanks
Cyberpower

No, not Coolermaster, get an Antec, Corsair, Enermax, PC Power & cooling and the best company ever SeaSonic. These are all quality name brands.

EDIT: Heres a good budget PSU, although its not modular.

Can you provide any information on why he shouldnt purchase the coolermaster?

I have a Coolermaster Silent Pro Modular, never given me a problem in 3 years of overclocking this quad and gpu.

Please don't mislead people into avoiding a brand because you don't fancy it.

Edit: His also in the UK.

All the brands he named are by far better than Cooler Master.
Althought Cooler Master offer reliable product that does their job just fine.

The coolermaster Silent series are good powersupplies, of course many will knock it because it is coolermaster. Are there better? yes are there worse? oh heck yes, depends on the price you are getting it for really. Look at the review from johnny guru on the silent 600.

BTW the modular cables are awesome, they are black coated wires molded side by side ina ribbon like fashion.

Do they offer a modular PSU at the same price brand? If so please link so he has the option

Other than people's brand preference's, can anyone think of a hurdle if he replaces this cyberpower own brand psu with a coolermaster?

Coolermaster is decent. I have used many coolermaster psu in my friend's computers.

To OP, when you say 'upgrade' I would look into at least a quality 650 watt power supply, as that wattage can support any single video card there is. so you don't need to upgrade down the road when you want something more powerful.

500 watts can let you use any AMD card (except for 6990), but if you want to dab into the higher end NVIDIA you need at least 600-650 watts.

Hope this helps =)

Not modular but all very good power supplies:

Yes the cable's being braided quite well is a plus, although I always wished they were braided right to the end of the plug but hey ho, I fixed that myself

Sorry, lemme correct myself. If your going for Coolermaster "MAKE SURE" its a Silent pro.

I just upgraded from my Silent Pro 700w (Which really is only a 600w unit) to a SeaSonic 750w (Actually a 748w unit), and I feel much better.
