Buying a new PSU targeting a SFF build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm in the verge of slowly transforming my rig to a mini-ITX SFF build and there are few things that I needed to change. One of them was my Corsair TX850 (original) modular PSU. OMG, that was a lot of cables. I've finally managed to find a buyer for it.

I am looking at 600-650W range. The chances of me changing the plans and go for a micro-ATX build AND go for a multi GPU setup is very slim. The former is possible but the latter is almost never going to happen. So 650W will suffice.

I'm in Japan and the prices will be different. I would like to have a small 140mm PSU if the quality isn't bad. Otherwise, 160mm.

These are the ones I checked.
1) Seasonic G-650 SSR-650RM $165
2) Corsair HX650 gold $133
3) Silverstone Strider Plus ST60F-PS $100
4) FSP PT-650M $115
5) Silverstone Strider Gold S ST75F-GS $167

Which one do you guys think I should get?

tbh for single GPU setup its going to be hard to need more then 450w of quality power

none the less PSU choice is dependent on the case you would use, some cases wont accept an ATX PSU or ones longer then 140cm.

on the safe side there is the 450W silverstone SFX PSU that you can get fully modular and 80+ gold and there will be an up coming 600w version of the same PSU

I second what akromatic said. I'm looking at downsizing from my Prodigy to a SG05 and from what I read, a 450 watts PSU would suffice as you will only be using 1 video card at most. Silverstone's 450 Watts Power supply is what i'm aiming for, if you still want to go higher, they have a 600 watts variant.

The SilverStone Strider Gold S is not that great compared to the others so dont pick that one

The Seasonic G would be the best of the bunch there, Just dont pick the HX650 which is a rebranded Seasonic G with half the PCI-E cables removed

But if the number of PCI-E ports is the only difference, maybe the HX650 is fine? It's $30 cheaper and I won't be using more than one video card. Besides, 650W might not be enough to run two cards (that slim chance) anyways, right?

If you are not going to have two video cards you dont need 650 watts to begin with so thats pointless overall

And yes you can run two video cards on 650 watts
