I'd spend $10-20 more than you want to and get a more universally respected PSU. Especially one with better efficiency. Yeah a cheapo one will probably run better than everyone will give it credit for but they will cost you more in the long run whether they break or not.

Save some peace of mind and money on your electricity bill and just get something a little bit better.

Because your rig runs anywhere close 630w.

post #44 of 130
is there a price range in which you can get a 450-600w rosewill but can't get an equal power corsair unit? how much is the rosewill, 35 bucks???
post #45 of 130
Lot of people here bashing on the name, when they don't even look at the OEM that actually supplied it. Recommend an AX850 because it's the Corsair name? Might as well recommend Seasonic right alongside it. Rosewill has great products lately, and yes, their power supplies fit the bill. They're not "the" best, but are worlds better than that junk Thermaltake TR2...

Only brands I would run Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, higher end Antec (their lower end ones suck). That and the older PC Power & Cooling which are essentially Seasonics.

If you want a good overclock a good PSU is a must.

Funny how you guys say a PSU with 60% efficiency is "decent" , thats utter garbage in my book. Its not without reason that the better PSUs are more expensive. You get what you pay for.

EDIT: Not all OCZ units are bad, but MOST are subpar.

Hardly any modern OCZ units are "subpar". Most of them fall into the good/decent category. There's a couple units in some ranges that tend to have problems, though. The OEM's tend to be a mixed grab-bag.

Most of the SxS, SxSII, MxS, OCZ Z, ZS, and ZT series are at least decent/good/great. You could do a lot worse.

If you want, I could give you some names of OCZ/Rosewill units that are better choices than similarly priced Corsair/Seasonic stuff.

people DO recommend seasonics, xfx, antecs, etc along side corsair, curb the jelly son. the supposedly great Rosewill units went kaput like most other ones they have made, there's no reason to bother with them.

rofl...put a 750w OCZ head to head with the HX750. oh, wait...you'd blow your own weak ass argument away before you hit"submit reply".

I think the PSU I posted above from Newegg is almost exactly the same as the Rosewill one but from Thermaltake and cheaper. Death Jester, If you are kind of iffy about the Rosewill one, Check out the Thermaltake.
