Why you should not buy an EVGA 400-600 and 500B-600B - Page 4  

post #31 of 53
so i better get a 700/750W EVGA ? right ??
i agreed about CX series, when those units reach 2 years, u will start seeing crashes and sudden shutdowns when u push your pc, i have a CX600M cant hold my r9 280 in new tittles, im lloking now for a better PSU:mad:

The 700B is not group regulated which is why the thread says 500B and 600B.
But unless you are going to have two video cards you dont need a 700 watt PSU

If you are looking for a really cheap but decent option the Corsair CX550
And no it has nothing to do with the old CX series

Somebody told me I was on the garbage hype train for saying I would spend 20 more dollars for a Seasonic S12ii 520w instead of an Evga 500w 80+ white PSU on a 600 dollar system. No wonder why his 1000+ dollar PC was starting to sound like a turbine...he owns a Deepcool PSU. I know that Seasonic model is a group regulated unit, which are not very popular these days but Johnny Gurú rate It pretty good.

Hi sorry to bring up an old thread but reading this has me quite concerned. I built a rig about a month ago and seemed to have skimped on the PSU due to my ignorance during the process of picking the components. Current specs are as follows

i5 6500
1060 6gb oc
8gb ddr4 3000 mhz
120 gb SSD(everything currently on the SSD)/1 TB HDD(empty)
600b psu
kraken x62 AIO
asrockZ170 PRO 4


I have been hearing grinding or "fax", "hard drive writing ish" sounds coming from the psu since I built it. It's only a month old. Did I damage any of my parts by using this psu? Or can I simply get a new one tomorrow and I will be fine>? Can you please suggest the best PSU for my build? you seem to be very knowledgeable when it comes to the subject. Money is not an option but I don't want to buy more power than I need. I would also prefer it to not sound like this psu at all, also I want to overclock my cpu, and gpu(which already is OC) Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced

*edit*

Might I also add that my core voltage readings for my cpu are always jumping around......it is not like what I see in other videos or readings. I hope I didn't damage anything but my machine runs great. Please help if you can!

I'm sure you haven't hurt anything with your computer.

This would be a good psu for your system:

That link has given me a 403 error, could your perhaps post the psu model itself? Thank you! It just concerns me that my CPUID VID readings and vcore readings are always fluctuating

I have the 600watt 80 plus EVGA PSU, its been up for about 90% of the last year (since i bought the PSU) and not one issue. Like any PSU even the top rated ones with very small//tight power tolerance can have issues and die. Most likely its just a fan going up in the PSU (which it needs to cool the board and components). Do you smell anything from the back of the power supply?

I have used many branded power supplies. the EVGA was on sale for $34 is the reason i got it, my system is constantly being upgraded, cause i find something on sale and ill upgrade it. My suggestion is to just buy a new PSU. Thermaltake, Corsair, Seasonic are all good and will power your system with no issues. You have some good components, A 600-650 watt would suffice, or if your looking at future proofing for a bigger video card later or dual cards, go for a 750watt. PSU should run you around 100-120 $ USD.

Maybe something like this Seasonic 760W

I'd prefer to stay away from evga if possible but I guess there seems to be quite a difference in how the gold models are built vs the bronze?

I have a friend with one of these one a Xeon W3520 and a GTS450. HAd it for maybe 4 years now actually. Never heard any problems or complaints from him. They might be cheap, but they certainly aren't cheap crap.
