A Good SFX12V PSU

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on building a small Micro-ITX system for my wife and plan to use a Lian-li PC-Q11B Case. It can take standard ATX PSU's but according to reports, it can get a quite cramped in there with one that isn't modular. I decided to go with a SFX PSU + adapter as it will increase maneuverability and airflow. I've come down to these two and I ask from you here, which is best?

FSP Group FSP300-60GHS-R 300W

or

SeaSonic SS-350SFE 350W

Now I know that Seasonics are quite reputable, but how are FSP units? I personally have not heard of them. Newegg has good reviews about them, but I've learned that these reviews tend to be made by people who are quite technologically ignorant. I'm trying to keep PSU cost to approximately $50, so if any of you have a better suggestion, please go ahead. Thanks.

FSP makes some good units and some reasonable ones including those SFX ones I think (not sure here). It looks like the Seasonic is an OEM unit, so it definitely doesn't come with a mounting bracket to be able to use it with standard ATX mounting hole spacing.

Really, the size difference is not that huge, compared with a standard ATX power supply of smaller depth. I'd just get a smaller ATX-sized unit without too many long cables. Maybe Seasonic SS-300ET or even Antec Earthwatts Green 380D?
