Recommended power supply? - Page 2

post #11 of 138
These are both solid computer component companies (especially corsair, I have never had a bad experience with their products)

If you want a PSU that most likely is never going to fail on you, buy a Corsair.

The four companies i'd like to stick to for psu's are silverstone, antec, corsair and seasonic. If you're not crossfiring grab a 500w, if you are grab a 750w.

Crossfire
http://www.microcenter.com/product/361181/High_Current_Gamer_750W_Gamer_Power_Supply_HCG-750

Single gpu (modular)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256065&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

The prices are so similar though, with both being at 7x dollars.

Coolermaster and ThermalTake are known for there cases not there PSU's. Id suggest a good bronze or silver certified PSU. As this is the place not to skimp on as it could blow your hole rig. I personally love PSU's made by antec and silverstone have lasted me years of great service with no problems.

A 550w is all you will need unless you want to future proof or plan to go with a xfire/SLi later then a 650 to700w is all you will need.

Everyone says Corsair yeah sure they are great but whats wrong with NZXT no one ever talks about NZXT PSU´s i know for a fact they are great i had a HALE 90 1000 watts myself and i got a HALE 90 650 watts for a friend and they where both very good units
I have another friend who has a XFX 550 watts PSU he is very happy with his PSU

I'm not saying other companies are bad, I'm just saying that from my experience Corsair is very reliable.
post #17 of 138
There is a guy here on OCN cant remember his name he more or less knows everything about PSU´s and he says people sould stop saying Corsair/Seasonic because if people only talk about Corsair/Seasonic no other brand can sell anything and then the PSU market will just die if only Corsair/Seasonic are left
Competition is a very good thing
Just for variety sake i will say pick a NZXT HALE 82 or HALE 90 PSU i have worked with the HALE 90 myself and know its very good

Thread Starter 
I used the PSUCalc and it said 425Watts. I read the help and it said this has a lot of leeway. So why is greater than 500W recommended?

This case comes with a 420W supply. http://www.impc.co.nz/products/zc_case-et-201bb.html?utm_source=pricespy&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=pricespy&ref=pricespy
But it is probably a "POS" one.

What do I gain from getting a high-quality power supply? Is it just reliability? Or are they more stable for OC etc?

EDIT: This thread got so many replys so fast. I am from New Zealand. I use this site to find all of my parts: http://pricespy.co.nz/

If you buy a 450 watts PSU you are close to maxing it out maxing out a PSU will make it die very quckly so pick higher watts to have less load on the PSU that way it will least longer.
Another thing some company say their PSU is 450 watts but in fact its only 425 so ALWAYS get a PSU at least 100 watts above what you need

The Xbitlabs review of it wasn't very good. Not horrific, but not great either. Granted Xbitlabs isn't the best site for PSU reviews, but they're not bad either.

Corsair is no better than many other big name companies. Some of their products are worse. They basically did a silent recall of the Gamer's Series because of issues a ton of people were having with the fan. It's an issue that seems like it may also be present in the new HX650 and HX750 units. I've also heard people having issues with the fan and software with the new AXi series. Lastly, the Builders Series aren't anything phenomenal and are worse than some other similarly priced units, namely from Antec.

Competition is a very good thing
Just for variety sake i will say pick a NZXT HALE 82 or HALE 90 PSU i have worked with the HALE 90 myself and know its very good

That was Phaedrus who said that. The Hale82-M is actually made by Seasonic and is basically the same unit as the XFX units, Seasonic M12II x50w units, and Corsair TX V2. The Hale90 is an excellent SuperFlower made unit based on their Golden Green platform and is also used in the Rosewill Capstone, Rosewill Lightning, and Kingwin Lazer Gold.

Now for OP:


If I were to recommend you a budget PSU, I'd grab the 500w XFX Core Edition which did decently at JonnyGuru, the Rosewill Green Series that did great at HardwareSecrets, or the Rosewill Hive. If OP can swing a little more, the Rosewill Capstone or 650w XFX Core Edition are excellent PSUs.
