[SOLVED] New PSU for GTX 770 + i5 3570K - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Seasonic M12II Bronze http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/253418/seasonic-m12ii-520w.html

If you want to go with something more high-end, which will cost more:
Super Flower Golden Green 550w: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/274264/super-flower-golden-green-sf-550p14xe.html
Seasonic G SSR-550RM: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/317761/seasonic-g-serie-550watt.html
The Tesla R2 500w is better than the MxS Pro 500w, FYI, so you don't "already have that". =)

500 watts is more then enough power you dont need more

The problem is with your OCZ that its made so bad that i dont think it can even do 500 watts and would you trust some garbage to power your brand new video card?

You need quality not quantity

If possible, I would definitely replace that PSU, even though it might appear to be good wattage wise. I, too, have heard horror stories about the older OCZ PSU's.

It will be hard to make any recommendations when we don't know the selection you have available. Link to a shop, maybe?
oh never mind, didn't notice the earlier posts.

Good point. I wouldn't want my rig (and possibly room) to go down in flames tongue.gif

The M12II Bronze looks very tempting.
Any thoughts on this one, shilka (and/or other readers biggrin.gif)?

The Seasonic S12II is the same platform used in the XFX Core Edition just modified a bit

The Seasonic S12II/M12II Bronze are solid lower mid-range units. Units like the Antec HCG / M 400~620w, PC Power & Cooling MKIII 400~600w, XFX Core Edition 450~550w, etc. are based on that platform.

The other units I have recommended are in the higher-end segment, that is better in respect to electrical performance, efficiency, design, etc.

If you want a decent midrange unit that is fully modular, there's the OCZ ZT 550w as well in your price range. http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/296165/ocz-ocz-zt550w-eu.html
But given the choice, I would make an effort to spend more for the Seasonic G or Super Flower Golden Green unit.

That ZT 550W seems interesting as well.

I'm very curious why you would prefer a more expensive PSU.
I assume that the €60~80 units recommended earlier in this thread are prefectly stable.
To me, efficiency doesn't matter (I'm a student and share my electricity bill with 5 other persons tongue.gif).

What other reason could you give me that would justify an expensive PSU?

The answer to that is the electrical ripple and voltage regulation

How important are those to the functionality of a PC?
Would having minimal ripple increase component lifetime or simply make overclocking results more stable?
Also, I believe I read somewhere that voltage differences of up to 5% are perfectly handled by a PC and more stability doesn't necessarily mean beter reliability or performance.

Anyway, thanks a lot for all of your advice, I really appreciate it. (rep+)

The answer is yes to both of the first two questions

Lower ripple and better voltage regulation = more stable clean and efficient power with longer lifespan for your hardware and more stable overclocks
