SeaSonic X460 questions.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Would this PSU have enough ventilation in a BitFenix Prodigy? Also do they get very hot when close to their max rated wattage?

Would it be enough for a 3570K at 1.35 volts and a 680 at +150mv along with 5 fans, controller, SSD, a couple HDD, and a bunch of USB devices?

it should be enough but for safety sake i would get the superflower 500 fanless or one of the newer platinium rated psu's

yes and quite favorably

KINGWIN Lazer Platinum Series LZP-550

KINGWIN STR-500

they have just reviewed the rosewill 750 on JG and the 650 on HS but both have scored also very well and i have no reason to believe the 550 will be different

650

750

you want complete silence on a psu and the kingwins both rate highly on that scale the fanless is dead silent and the fanned 550 unit hardly twitches the fan till you get to 400 watt load

The rosewill inits are not modular but the price reflects that there are newer modular platinum units incoming from them but no word on when

the is also a non modular kingwin 550 platinum unit for $120

That's an excellent choice, especially since it can comfortably power a second GTX 680 on that system. wink.gif

Not that it would ever fit but good to know! Thank you. thumb.gif

For now. thinking.gifdevilsmiley.gif

I'm stoked it's on its way. It will hang out the back a bit, it's a little long. But man what a platinum, fanless, modular beast. Thanks obs!
