Bang For The Buck? Yes! Quality? Maybe.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have asked in our local forums what power supply do they recommend for an i7-3770K and a GTX 680. All of them recommended Seasonic, Corsair and Antec power supplies. So, I was looking for a good Corsair one until I stumbled upon this: ENERMAX NAXN82+ 850w Semi-Modular 80+ Bronze which only costs $98 when converted. That's a bang for the buck for an 850w power supply. But with that price, do I get quality power supply? Anyone who uses this too?

The reviews on newegg seem pretty good. ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194095 ).

Here is the link for OCN recommended power supplies. ( http://www.overclock.net/t/183810/faq-recommended-power-supplies ). Finding an 850 watt power supply from the OCN power supply list will be a better option.

You're looking at far too large units, a 3770K + GTX 680 system maxes out at ~350W. Buying an 850W unit is senseless, especially when you can get a higher quality, lower output unit for the same money.

Look for a Rosewll Capstone or a Seasonic G series, the 450W versions would be plenty.

Maybe the 550W, Sin.

Both my CPU(i7 3820) and my GPU(GTX 670, unlocked bios) are heavily overclocked and my 600w PSU doesn't have the slightest problems with anything.

850w is overkill in my opinion. For the price, Id much rather get a higher quality unit closer to 550-650w.

I'd take the 450W versions of either series, for SB-E or Vishera I might consider the 550W, but for Ivy there's no need really.
