Get an antec 600w psu or a corsair one smile.gif

You can't just blindly recommend one brand of PSUs to someone, especially to people who might not know what they're talking about or looking for. Sure OCZ makes some great units, but they have also made some pretty piss-poor units as well. About the only brand you can blindly recommend would be Corsair, but even they have made a few lower-tier units that aren't amazing units. They're not bad by any means, but there are better purchases to be made. Still though, if you could find a legit review of this PSU it would be greatly appreciated. I found a couple reviews of some lower-powered units that are a couple years old and they look horrific. But as I'm not a PSU guru, any additional knowledge about this PSU would be more than welcome. Did you find any reviews for this specific PSU build?

Seasonic > all
Corsair and XFX uses their PSU so yeah, get one of those 3 and you'll have a quality product. Unlike OCZ and their average PSU. I agree thought they have the cheapest modular 500-550 watts unit.

EDIT: They are not the same units, how can you even say that, I stated BRANDS.
Not all seasonics are the same, so how could the corsair and the XFX ones can be the same too.
They are just good quality builds, rebranded. That's it.

We don't know what the processor he is using is, but it's safe to say there's no way he's only going ot be using 200-250 watts of power. True he doesn't need a quality 600 watt PSU, but to claim that he won't be using more than 250 watts max? That is impossible...

Wrong, Seasonic can make and does make trash too, just like everybody else in the industry, there are better OEMs than Seaonic as there are worst OEMs, you don't blindly buy something because it's branded this or that... you're giving poor advice and you're not helping.

i guess without knowing what cpu he is using i cant say for sure but furmark isnt a realistic load so lets not even bring that up. Listen i am not saying his psu is any good at all but i am saying that its entirely likely that he could run his rig on that psu for years without any issues.

You actually have my attention on this...I know Seasonic makes different quality PSUs, but just to make sure...Are you saying Seasonic makes "trash" units as in they're no better than no-name brand PSUs? Or are you using "trash" relatively speaking, as in they're not as good as upper-tier but still better than 90% of the other PSUs on the market? I just haven't heard of Seasonic making "trash/junk" units before...but i'm always down to learn something new smile.gif

Is it so hard to believe that your beloved seasonic could make a bad product?

I can't believe I just read this.
Link me any Seasonic units that are poor.

You are not helping either.
You are in fact almost saying that his crappy PSU would be better than a seasonic unit.

I'm not blind. Even the ****tiest seasonic unit would be better than his so your branded this or that doesn't matter.

They are affordable, reliable and trustworthy.

EDIT : I see everyone jumping on their horses about seasonic, I never said they were the only good PSU producers, I'm jsut stating that they are much more reliable than the OP current PSU.

Now state me which Seasonic product sucks balls. Go ahead.
I'm pretty sure Seasonic had his history of RMA, just like all the brands.
IMO Seasonic has a much better value than all the other PSU out there. Quality is the key. Unlike no name brand that sell their crap 1000 watts but can't handle 200w.
