Corsair vs Nexus

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

Simple question: which power supply is the best, most reliable, lives longest etc,
Nexus Value 430
Corsair CX430v2
Thermaltake TR2 380w
OCZ StealthXStream 2 500W
All can be found from the recommended power supplies -thread..

I'm putting together a low-end rig for light use but it needs to endure for as long time as possible so I need a cheap but high quality power supply, and from the not-so-wide selection of my local store, these are the four notable options for the price range that I'm looking into.

Edit: forgot to change the title before posting, sorry.. But there are four candidates for this one, of which one (OCZ) is propably a little too powerfull for my needs.

Be careful of the exact Thermaltake TR2 model. There are many and the one that's acceptable has a P at the end and is 80 plus bronze.

I think the Corsair CX430 V2 is the best of those, though I'm not sure about the Thermaltake. Certainly the CX430 V2 should have the best performance. Reliability might be slightly under the others, but it shouldn't be bad, particularly with the kind of light usage you envision. The Nexus should be the quietest.

The corsair is the best out of those four i believe

EDIT: good for you for taking the initiative and doing a bit of research first.
