So I am curious to know what you use for a PSU? I mean I am all for paying extra to get a good PSU. Besides the XFX that you stated what else would you recommend?

(Considering you don't show your PSU in your sig rig lol)

Yes it is now i have a unworking computer and have to wait for corsair to reply on what there going to do... Really hope they replace the compnemts that were messed up/

My CX600 does fine. Those graphs tell me that it's an average PSU, just like every other sub $200 PSU.

My CX 600 is on the fritz after 2 yrs. I don't think that I'd purchase another one in that line although the 430 models have been decent to me. What do you think about the Thermaltake Toughpower 750W that's Gold rated and decently priced Shilka?

Those are rebranded FSP Aurum and are alright

But do you need 750 watts?

Trying to create a sig for my rig.
4670K,
Asus Fatality Z87 Killer
Samsung 830 120 SSD and Samsung 1 TB SJ HD,
CDRW / DVD Optical
2x4 Gskill Sniper 1866
Asus GTX 560Ti Boost (OEM OC Edition) Purchasing another for SLI maybe

I'm thinking 375-400 watts with the one 560 Boost, but might upgrade to GTX 760 SLI when the price comes down . So yeah the 750 watts sounds right.

For under 70.00 shipped it seems to be cheaper than most Bronze rated 650 units.


Thanks Man

Kind of assumed it was a given....

have a CX430 in my NAS but wouldn't put one in a higher end rig. But I always assumed it was kind of a given that you wouldn't throw a $15-40 PSU in a $650+ rig

650 watts can do it

Only 650 watts PSU i can name right now with 4 PCI-E cables is the Seasonic G series

The HighPower Astro Gold series might also have but not 100% sure

Should have clarified that I've used the CX430 on i3 Media builds in the past without issue. Wouldn't consider it for an i5 or i7 build. Bang for the buck I purchased the Thermaltake Tough Power TP-750P (Gold Rated) because my CX600 was making whining noises even when powered down. Not fan related, but electrical I fear.


Have to save some money for a Seasonic X or equivalent unit in the future. Seems they only go on sale a couple times a year for about 100.00



Thanks Again
