FSP HEXA - any good?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
The only thread i could find about this is old, and didn't provide much information.

These are made by fsp, available throughout europe, apparently made by fortron. 230V only.

They are apparently entry level psus with great price! However, are the any good? I was hoping someone had some experience with them since reviews seem pretty hard to find.

The only review I found was in vietnamese (http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=pt-BR&sl=vi&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpowerlab.vn%2F2011%2F05%2Ffsp-hexa-he-500-500w%2F)

I was hoping somebody experienced in the inner workings of psus could sift through the review and give their own opinion! rolleyes.gif

that also seems to be a fake 80+ label or they were released before 80+ was around

HEXA are ok but nothing exceptional. Mediocre is the word I'd use.

Hm, between the FSP HEXA 500, the Antec VP-450, and the Corsair cx430v2, what would you recommend?

The hexa is about 7 bucks more, the antec and the corsair are essentially the same price.

Bump, I'm going to acquire on of the three very soon i guess. Would really like some opinion on which is better so I can place the order.

The VP-450, while a reasonable entry level unit, has no PFC, so it's out of the question from the get go since you can get a CXv2 for similar money... the Hexa 500 has the advantage of a second PCIe connector compared to the CXv2, so while not being superior to it (maybe somewhat inferior) it offers superior functionality.... in the end, if you don't need two PCie connectors you should go for the CXv2, if you do need two of them, then go for the HEXA.

right of now I don't need the extra connector, and if I do in the future, cards usually bring a four to six pin adapter. So if the CXV2 is superior and less expensive, that'll be the one I chosse. Thanks Sin, +1
