post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I building another rig NZXT in my signature and need a power supply...

I have looked at this power supply as it is available locally. The associate whom helped me
said he thought this unit was made by Seasonic. I have not been able to verify this
yet.
This is available Locally:

Usually when I buy a power supply I try to stick to trustworthy and reliable names like corsair, antec, and cooler master because I don't like the idea if having sketchy power supplies providing power to hundred of dollars of computer parts, so I'd really find out who the manufacturer is of that first power supply.
Also for that other power supply, 600 should be plenty.

I really don't think PC Power and Cooling can be described as "sketchy" . Anyway, here is a JohnnyGuru review of the PC Power and Cooling MKIII 600W PSU

The PCP&C Silencer MKIII is actually a very solid unit and good value for money, you could comfortably run your setup on it and even add another GTX 660 later down the line if you wanted to thumb.gif

I was talking about the one that might be a seasonic. All I'm saying is if the PSU doesn't have a label on it of the manufacturer then that would worry me.

PSU's usually carry their own brand label, but not who the OEM manufacturer is.... unless the OEM is selling under their own brand. Seasonic has their own branded PSU's, in addition to other brands that they manufacture for.

Thanks for the help. Glad to know Seasonic had its hand in making it.

OCZ has its hand in quite of few product according to jonnyguru.com

They had this model in the store the other day but sales rep did not know anything to tell
me about OCZ power supplys, he seemed to point me to Corsair. I know their must be
something out there it equal. He also said Corsair is more expensive and I agree but sometimes
you get what you pay for. I am 4 the little guy.

Any Thoughts ?
