Help me choosing a good but not that expensive power supply for my setup!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So.. yeah looks like my Cooler Master GX 750W was a TOTAL WASTE and i've lost tons of money.. (see http://www.overclock.net/t/1221802/random-shutdowns-had-to-remove-vid ...-___-) I need a new PSU for my system... Good brand, reliable.. oh and, it has to resist an 3.8-4GHz OC of my processor.
Setup is @ my signature, I want either modular and non-modular suggestions, so, go for it!

OCZ ZS 750W. Should work good for you unless you try to go SLI. I know it can SLI two 560TI's but I don't think it would do two 570's. It has a 54A Single Rail. 80 Plus Bronze efficiency.

$90 with a $20 Rebate= $70

EDIT: Even better. A OCZ ZX 850W modular PSU. It has a 70A Single Rail so it should power most setup's unless you go Tri or Quad Cards. 80 Plus Gold efficiency.

$130 with a $40 Rebate=$90

If you are going to go SLI:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102

If you absolutely aren't:

SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093
About 66 bucks shipped.

OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341017
40 with rebate.



Your set up requires ~503W so anything you can find on the Recommended Power Supply FAQ that will fit that is a good choice.

The OCZX for 40 bucks after rebate looks to be your best bet if you have no plans on upgrading to dual cards, or if you are going to go dual cards on a newer, smaller architecture.

What's your budget? Right off the bat I'll have to say Corsair's AX650/750/850, TX850M/750M, or the HX750/850. All of these are solid power supplies and are in the high end zone. Choose which one you want and your budget.

First of all, OCZ ZS 750W could handle SLI.

Secondly, nothing posted so far is particularly a great value (certainly not those Corsair options in most places), except the M12II 520W at $60 is a bit better than usual.

Most importantly, he's in Venezuela, which begs the question of what's actually available for purchase. Can you link a website, or stores?

Something of very high quality that should be available, is Sentey Golden Steel Power (Super Flower Golden Green, used also by NZXT Hale90, Kingwin Lazer Gold, Rosewill Capstone, Rosewill Lightniing). The Platinum Power is of course quite acceptable too.

Definitely im not going to SLI, not this year.. or 2013.. Ur options are good but, in my country there are just "OCZ Fatal1ty 750w" one and "Ozc Zs 650watts". Both are expensive as f**k tho.. lol

There are no sentey's in my country... And as i said up there in another quote, I have just those models to buy here..

Theres just one link, i've always bought my stuff from here.

http://www.mercadolibre.com.ve/

i'll just buy any component from there, if isn't there, then i dont have any method to buy it.

Thaaaaaaanks~

Sentey is more in South America, but maybe not Venezuela then. Though I did find this (you don't want it though):
http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ve/MLV-37449638-fuente-de-poder-extreme-rock-power-erp-600-ss-600w-38-amp-_JM

With overclocked GTX 570 and overclocked Phenom II X4, I would not suggest Corsair CX500 V2, since the +12V capacity is a bit low. CX600 V2 should be okay:
http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ve/MLV-400831843-fuente-poder-corsair-600watts-cx600v2-certif-80plus-cnvl-_JM

It is not about the 50W extra, but OCZ ZS 650W is significantly better and not that much more expensive:
http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ve/MLV-38430278-fuente-de-poder-ozc-zs-650watts-certificadas-80-bronze-sli-_JM

If OCZ ZS 550W were available and cheaper, I would recommend that instead. The other cheaper options tend to be much older and worse designs, and many are lying about specifications.

The Corsair TX650 can definitely handle your rig. Like what mikeaj said, do you have a store that you particularly want to buy from? It'll help narrow down our choices, and having a definite budget would help.

Cx600v2 seems like the best choice.... but that ZS 650W looks sexy and powerful as hell.. Hmm im between those two. I think i cant spend more than 1,200 Bs.F.. :l Actually i dont even know if i can spend 1,100 lol.. but yeah those two do look good for me.

In other hand, im actually working in my GX 750w... Any hope to repair those random shutdowns? ty ;___;
