Corsair CX and GS is not worth touching

Corsair TX HX and AX are good quality but they are just overpriced

And to prevent a misunderstanding no Corsair units are not bad quality its just the Corsair name that is overhyped and overblown by fan that dont know much about Corsair

Many dont even know that Corsair does not make a single one of their own units they buy from 4 OEM´s

The OEM´s are the ones that make the units and Corsair then buy those and slap them in a box they made

I would not hesitate to run that rig on a Corsair CX430M. You can get one for 30-35 bucks on sale and they are pretty solid PSU's based on reviews. ESPECIALLY at that price point. It would be a major upgrade from the Sooper-China-Firecracker PSU's he's been using.

i have overclocked to 3.7 using the ACC or Unleash to unlock the 4th core (im the lucky bastard to whoom the 4th core runs stable )
I do have to admit that those psu firecrackers were crappy but i had a friend that still runs his COBA King psu to this day

Oh, no doubt, I've ran my share of generic PSU's, some of them for 5+ years and never a problem.

As for my Corsair CX430 recommendation, their $25 at Newegg right now. They are on the OCN recommended list, and JonnyGuru gives them a 9 out of 10. Thats a 3 point plan for success in my eyes.

Theres plenty of good reviews on them and they are great little PSU's. And at that price, it's a no brainer to me.

You might not be able to find these or they could be overpriced as well but take a read if you have the time

Really man? His rig pulls 300W from the wall on a good day, with a freak power surge.

There are two fractals here in my local shop but they are both 1kw. I don't think I'll ever need THAT much power biggrin.gif however I still want to buy a 500-600 watt psu so I would have enough power for some upgraded components like a new video card. This rig according to psu calculator eats ~400 w. Also is there a huge difference between those 80plus ratings?like is it the same rating system as 80plus is meh and 80platinum is godlike?

I have always been that numpty who gets many more watts than required, just look at my rig, its got a TX750 in there.

The lesson is, find out what your rig is really pulling, i.e. Basket Case ran a similar rig and took nowhere near 300w, so his recommendation is sound.
What you will also find, is that when you upgrade your CPU/GPU they have smaller power requirements too, I could shave required watts off by moving from my GTX570 to a 660 and even get a few more frames per second smile.gif

Read the power supply thread mentioned above, and the Johnny Guru site for information that will definitely change the way you look at powering your system.

Finally , check the warranty that comes with the unit, a decent psu will have a nice 3 year warranty, more highly rated 80+gold/Platinum psu's have 5 or even 7 year warranties, so if the manufacturer is willing to back their unit for that length of time, your only worry is a freak failure, which as with anything is unpredictable, but that is what warranties are for.

and finally Shilka, why the anti Corsair mood? Bad experiences? Many many manufacturers buy in or base their psu's on a set number of designs, I am not bothered at all who the manufacturer of my PSU is but price/availability is important, and corsair hit the mark when I bought it a couple of years back.
