Should I replace my PSU? - Page 6

I will never agree to blindly choosing PSUs based on brand names, especially Rosewill and OCZ PSUs (of course, this applies to most brand names except for maybe SeaSonic). I'm even beginning to put Corsair into this "don't do it blindly" category because of the CX430/CX500/CX600 and the VS series. Blindly choosing based on a brand name can cause a person to end up either getting ripped off as I demonstrated or getting a PSU that's not even recommended. The CX430/500/600 has cheaper capacitors and weak +12V rails, so I don't like them and I'll always avoid recommending them if I can help it. Even their GS series can usually be easily beat when comparing like-for-like. Although, most (if not all) of Corsair's PSUs are overpriced like this.

I apologize for being hard-nosed about this, but I feel that PSUs should be taken more seriously than that. For this reason, I will never recommend that anyone shop for PSUs by brand names. I would much rather that they come here and spend the time gaining the ability to make a fully-informed decision than just take the easy way out and go by brand names.
That is one of the best and most informative posts i have seen in awhile and he is absolutely right i agree

Yes, and that's why I want him to take that list into the store!

What if he don't have a Printer? I am against people just buying a Corsair for the Name. BUT, if all the OP can remember Corsair, and the Letters AX/TX/HX, he will be set. Sure their is other PSU's that are good, but that gets more into the Series of that brand and etc, etc. So all i am meaning, for the 4th time, Get A Brand Name PSU. thumb.gif

Right, and then the person in question would end up with something like a cheap Cooler Master PSU. After all, that's a trusted brand name isn't it?

 

Anyway, I'm not worried about JKuhn because he said this:

I'll go through the list and see if I can get something. There's a local shop where I should be able to get most of it, but I prefer not to do it because the supplier sometimes takes a while (it can be available the next day, or it can take months).

 

He said nothing about "I don't have a printer", or "how am I going to remember all of these?", or "I don't want to write all these down", or anything like that. Therefore, I'm not concerned. He sounds like he has a good plan regarding how he's going to handle this list.

 

Can we stop this back-and-forth thing now? I don't know how much more I can take.

I suppose, if you stop picking apart my posts and trying to make me sound wrong, even though my info still holds true. Like i said, and anyone with common sense would agree, a Name Brand PSU,Mobo, or HDD will fair better then a Off Brand, sure their are "stinkers" even in Corsair's Lineup, but 9/10 it's better then the other junk. Period. thumb.gif

I'm not completely disagreeing with what you have been trying to say. It's just that I feel it's not worth even mentioning because we've already given him that list which negates the need to recommend that he at least makes sure he sticks to a reputable brand name this time. However, I will always contend that that's too risky because too many people will go out and get the cheapest PSU they can find made by a reputable brand name only to end up with another junker. It's like, "Oh! Ok! I love Thermaltake, so I'll go out and get one of their cheap TR2 units because they have great prices on them". Yeah, uh, no.

However, I will always contend that that's too risky because too many people will go out and get the cheapest PSU they can find made by a reputable brand name only to end up with another junker. It's like, "Oh! Ok! I love Thermaltake, so I'll go out and get one of their cheap TR2 units because they have great prices on them". Yeah, uh, no.

Well see now your being more reasonable and i can work with that. I agree, never cheap out, idc if it's a Cheifmax or a Corsair, $20 for a 900W PSU is $70 to cheap lol
