PSU Trouble.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN community. I am having major trouble with my PSU ever since I built my new rig back in October of last year. Let me start out with why I think this is:
I bought this PSU from someone online, said it was rated for 800W (BS), and was for a reasonable price. It was new, out of the box. It has no brand or logo on it. Everything seemed fine to me, until I checked the voltages on SpeedFan. The +5V area is at a constant 3.6V, and this really troubles me. I have a FX-8350 with a pretty high end air cooler (because I have minor overclock on it), a HD 7770 (great little card tongue.gif , also overclocked), and a 2TB hard drive. I would hate to have something happen to my computer. Reason is because I need it for school. I take programming, computer science and game design, and need somewhat of a nice computer to do all of that stuff at home. Anyways, I have a new PSU in mind. I have a link and I would be grateful if someone gave me some suggestions on this one. It has everything I need, plus I like the brand and style.

That is a solid psu!

I would highly recommend this and its $40 off.

The problem with buying "bargain" parts for computers is like buying cheap parts for your car, they offer a temporary fix but they never last anywhere near as long as premium parts.

I'm just glad you have the sense to get a new power supply before it goes wrong, at least you can keep it back as a spare one. thumb.gif

No its not worth buying Corsair anymore

The Cooler Master V would be a better option first its better bang for buck second its a Seasonic KM3 unit

Edit the XFX is a Seasonic as well

Thanks for the prompt reply guys thumb.gif I was stuck on either the XFX or Corsair PSU and due to all of the DOA's and other problems on the Corsair one, I chose the XFX one biggrin.gif

And plus I like the Hybrid feature on the XFX PSU because I like a silent system tongue.gif
