Yes, I just want to make sure people don't get some terrible power supply just because it's cheap and they want it asap... I personally wouldn't run anything other than Corsair or Seasonic on my higher end builds although I admit I went cheap and got a Rosewill Hive series modular 850 watt for 49.99 and it has been a great test bench power supply and now sits in my prodigy build. Some cheaper brands have bad power fluxes that will kill components over time.. Check out some of TTL's videos about it where he stresses them and test them with actual equipment.

My toppower is serving mine very well. 40 buck 500 watt-er that's dead silent, I'm happy.

High end powersupplies, doesn't start with or end in a C, doing it wrong.

As long as there have been good (actual) reviews of the power supply, I wouldn't discriminate between brands, that's just me though.

That being said, I enjoyed my Antec TruePower New 750w (Seasonic-made) and now my Seasonic X750. If you can get Seasonic, that's where my recommendation goes.
post #697 of 10728
Actually..Seasonic PSUs are made by the same company that makes the Corsair PSUs..Brand is irrelevant, it's the factory it was made in and the OEM than makes the difference..everything else is easily modifiable...

Not all of them...Some are made by Channel Wells...and Seasonic now OEMs their PSUs, They don't own the factories...
