PSU question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, looking to buy a new psu since the one i have is a cheap one and i intend to do some serious OC in the future. Problem is the recommended ones i found in another thread are like crazy expensive around here (40$ PSU at 120$ here ) I've recently installed a Maxcube Nira 400w PSU on a friend's computer and i liked it a lot. Since 400w doesn't cut it for me i would go for a Maxcube Nira 500 or maybe Maxcube Blitz 550w. What do you guys know of Maxcube Nira and Blitz? The nira 400 was very stable running Prime95 with Furmark but i only used software to test.


btw. Don't recomend other stuff as they are way too overpriced.

Where are you? Maybe we can find a way to get you a good PSU for sensible money.

And I don't mean those "maxcube" things either.

CX430w would do the job very nicely or the CX500 V2

Do you have a link to where you can buy from?

A quality 400w would be fine for your rig, maybe even a 350w.

Here you go: Corsair CX430 V2 http://www.dataspot.ro/produse/Sursa...SU-430CXV2.php

CX500 V2: http://www.dataspot.ro/produse/Sursa...SU-500CXV2.php

What is your budget in that currency?

It seems' that they do corsair PSU's which is great, I would personally pick the CX430 V2, it's a quality unit and should handle your rig with no problems.

290RON would get you an Antec HCG400, which is definitely worth it.

However, the 190RON Corsair CX430v2 is an excellent choice for your rig.
