Best Cheap PSU

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What's the best PSU for Overclocking and it's reliable?
A power supply that's about 500-600 watts and not exspensive?
It doesn't have to be a household name.Just a good overclocking psu and reliable.Just,got some unexspected bills.So,I've got to get a cheaper PSU now.The one I was getting.I believe is $199.99
My budget now is $75-100.00

I'am the cheapest at 450-550watt PSU,that I can buy.With 20+4 pin and dual-rails.That won't blow-up.LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Bottom line mimimum (<$50):

Lower range (<$100):
Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W $89.99 + $6.34 shipping (dual 12V rails, 19A each, total max load 36A)

Upper mid range (<125):
OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI ATX12V 600W $119.99 + $8.02 shipping (quad 12V rails, 18A each, total max load ~42A - 45A)

Lower high-end (around $150):
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W $149.99 + free shipping (quad 12V rails, 18A each, total max load ~50A - 53A)
or:
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C $159.99 + free shipping (single 12V rail, 49A (!))

High-end (NOT the one you picked, get this one if you spend that much):
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 EPS12V EPS12V 750W $199 + ?? shipping (single 12V rail, 60A (!))

Best pick for you: likely the Antec TPII

Those single rail PCP&C's are the best you can get right now. I prefer them to be single rail actually

Hey, the Sunbeam NUUO 550W is a great PSU! \\/ \\/ \\/ only $85-$90. Performs well.
post #7 of 9
The absolute best in the 600w range and a budget of $200 or less, it's the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W: http://www.pcpowercooling.com/produc...hp?show=S61EPS

One of the few Chozart has mentioned but I believe that's the absolute best.
My 750W Silencer is ultra quiet and it's reliable, very inexpensive for what I got.

The NUUO is ok also, but I've heard from a couple of members here that theirs failed. Also, the Antec TPII has just that extra little bit of current on the 12V rails that might matter in the future.

Plus, I don't like modular

I'd go with either the FSP 450w or a nuuo 550w. I've got both and am happy with both
