Will my PSU be good enough for this? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
The CX 500 is a poor unit, the OCZ MXS Pro isn't brilliant either but it's better than the CX so if you're stuck between those two you should get the latter.

Are you stuck to tigerdirect or can you buy from somewhere else too?

The CX500 hasn't had a single review done by a reputable reviewer.

It's noisy, it's hot because it's not that efficient, it's hardly a true 500W unit considering the 12v output.. however, it's a honest low end unit(CWT DSAII inside) so you can't expect too much from it, the Sirtec made MXS Pro is better.

The cheapest unit from tigerdirect I'd suggest is the OCZ ZS 550.

He doesn't need to buy a new PSU.

Even an overclocked 560 calls for 24A & 450W; he has 30A & 450W.

I would agree with you if we were talking about a solid 400W unit(12v @ 36A) but Diablotek hasn't put a single decent PSU on the market til now.. I would not use the unit in question independent on what's written on it when I know it's made by one of the many Chinese offenders.

Ewww Diablotek, get rid of it ASAP.

Another option is the Antec Neo Eco 520C, $54.99 from newegg

Half the people are relying upon conjecture and bias; half are giving you information based on data.

See what I was saying?

If someone here can provide testing data showing that the PSU in question won't perform as listed (http://diablotek.com/v2.0/index.php?...emart&Itemid=2), we'd certainly all love to see it.

As aforementioned by myself, there's no need to buy something different; when want enters the picture, it's an entirely different story altogether.
