Should I be worried about my PSU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 (link below) running my system in my sig. I've bought this psu on 5/22 and it was inside an old pre built HP pc til about three weeks ago where it's now in my new system. Before buying this psu I read several reviews about it before buying it, including the very negative review from hardwaresecrets.com, but I thought several good reviews should trump that one right? Then I came across OCN where there was so much bad talk about this psu that it got me worried. Well so far my computer has been running fine with no problems to it, but should I be weary of this psu? However I do plan to upgrade my video card when Kepler is released, should I also invest in different psu when that time comes? And should my system be okay for the time being?

I think you should use it until the PSU actually fails.
That PSU either works or it doesn't.

If you don't have issues with it, then there is no problem.

If it were to fail, would there be a chance that my other components might be at risk too?
