PSU for a home server

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm going to upgrade the PSU in my server (have a sparkle desktop model in there now) to something more suited to a server with 6 SATA drives. Any recommendations?

well server power supplies come in some many different physical sizes beside just how much power they have.
here is link for you to look at server psu.

Yeah I looked at that. My server is in a standard mid tower case so the PSU's for rackmount cases won't work. I looked at the supermicro PWS-502-PQ but the reviews aren't very good. The other ones I found that are 80 plus are all way overpowered. I don't have a discrete GPU or anything, just 6 SATA drives, a disk drive, motherboard, and (soon) a haswell i5.

I have enough connectors for my system with a standard psu and I have 4 hard drives and 2 graphics cards 6 fans and a dedicated sound card, so maybe you can just go with a standard psu. mine is a corsair AX1200 watt
