There are some Sparkle Power Inc (SPI) / FSP (same company more or less) OEM versions of the Silverstone 300w included with their cases.

There are a few SFX12v Seasonic units as well, but they lack PCIe connectors and only go up to 350w.

BeQuiet has the same unit as the FSP made units from Silverstone in the SFX Power 350w

working on a build ATM (collecting parts) and a friend recommended this power supply

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171036

my build will be basicly

i7 2600k (no big plans to overclock at least anytime soon)
Asus P8Z68-V Pro / ASRock Z68 Extream4
Radeon HD 6570 graphics card


is that a good/decent power supply for my build?
post #1273 of 6753
It's a solid unit, but it's WAY more than that build will need.

Are you going to be upgrading the GPU any time soon?

For around the same price you can get the Lepa G500 which is modular, 80+ Gold, has a longer warranty, and performs better.
Pretty much the same 12v ratings on both units. The G500 will handle any single GPU with that system (yes even a GTX 580 or HD6970.)

It's a solid unit and priced better than the Silent Pro M600, but the Silent Pro M600 performs better.

You will most likely wish to look at the 1200w class of PSU's on the market.

The Antec TPQ-1200 OC would most likely be the best option for you. It's actually the same PSU as the EVGA Classified SR2 1200w but priced much lower (obviously, which is because EVGA has to buy them from Antec who buys them from Enhance, and EVGA marks the price up because it's labeled SR2)

The PSU it self is a bit loud, but it'll do the job wonderfully.

Hmmm is it the better option for the price? (45-50$ after rebate and promo code)

also if i may ask if you had semi limited funds what one of those two would you go with?

For the price it's a definite value, I would go with it without hesitation as the performance is definitely there. It's rather efficient, and the only true downside is the capacitor choice for the secondary side is mostly Ltec (or Trec, I get those mixed up, but both are low end.)

Still, with a 3 year warranty, you'll be solid
