Oh really? What did you learn about the Quark? I'm interested now.

Two good reviews
http://bit.ly/2aqlfUJ
http://bit.ly/2aIHLfO

$59.99 AR
80+ Platinum
Enhance Electronics is the OEM
Fully Modular.
5 Yr warranty

How can you beat all that for 60 bucks?

Edit: BTW, we have identical main rig PSU's. I wonder how much longer the thing has. It's coming up on 6 years old.

The JG review is for the 1000W version of the Quark.
post #6575 of 6753
Still same OEM, soldering, parts, etc. Just beefier to support 1000w

For future reference, it's ok to use full URLs like this:

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=435

 

That way, you can see what the link is for.

 

Anyway, the 80+ Efficiency isn't much to consider unless you are determined to reduce your electricity bill. Regardless, I guess if spending $15 less is a big deal, then get it. However, the 550W G2 for $75 after a $10 rebate is better.

Yeah, I shorten the links as an OCD thing wink.gif looks nicer.

I would agree the G2 is a better unit. Scores a 10/10 on JG. Rosewill power supplies have treated me well. (Green, Hive, and some others)

Edit: in case you didn't see it before, we have the same main rig unit. How is your 650 holding up?

I would rather have a big link that tells me where it's going to put me instead of clicking some mysterious link posted by someone I don't even know! That way, I know before I click if I can trust it. So, please stop using the short links. They aren't better.

 

Don't judge PSUs by brand name. Rosewill's OEMs are a major mixed bag of everything from crap stuff to decent (the old Capstones). The G2 is the Super Flower Leadex, which is pretty damn high-end actually. The Quark is just basically pretty solid but it's only $15 less. I don't like that.

 

My HX650 seems fine, but I confess that I worry from time to time. Maybe I'm being overly paranoid for nothing.

My friend is building a PC and he asked me for advice. But, I've been off the OCN grid for a while so I thought it would be best to ask here. I've seen the table in the OP but was unsure about the wattage.

 

  1. Buying Location.
    1. First choice : Switzerland (http://www.toppreise.ch/top100.html?cat=1994 ; http://www.steg-electronics.ch/de/articlelist/newArticles.aspx ; www.pc-ostschweiz.ch/PC-Netzteile-c11875.htm ; https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/producttype/pc-netzteil-81?tagIds=76-524 ; http://www.microspot.ch/msp/pages/searchResult.jsf?searchTerm=Netzteil+&N=0&Ntk=FulltextSearch_de&Nty=1 )
    2. Second choice : EU
    3. Third choice : USA
  2. Budget! Set a preferred price and an absolute maximum if you can.
    1. ~100$ . Max 130$
  3. Wattage needed, if you're not sure then that's fine but make sure to give us the details to #4!
    1. I am unsure about this. (Outervision calculator gave me 350W-400W)
  4. What will you be powering? Include as much detail as possible.
    1. i5-6500 or i3-6100.
    2. RX480 OR R9 380 depending on availability.
    3. 2X8GB DDR4 RAM.
    4. 256GB SSD (Samsung/Transcend)
    5. ATX Motherboard - Model Undecided
    6. Everything will be run at stock
  5. Modular cables? Non-modular/semi-modular/fully modular.
    1. Do not required modularity at all. But do not mind it.
  6. Number of PCIe cables needed.
    1. Two?
  7. Any other requirements. For example dimensions, flat cables, ATX/SFX/TFX etc.
    1. ATX case. No dimension restrictions, no cable requirement.
    2. DVD writer

 

Thanks:)

Wattage is going to be well below 500W, but I'm going to recommend 500W+ PSU's anyway because the selection is just plain better.

The new Corsair Vengeance PSU's are pretty killer value, the 650W got a great review by JG and I think its fairly safe to assume the 550W is based on the same platform. But if you want to be sure you could just get the 650W.
http://www.toppreise.ch/prod_456376.html
http://www.toppreise.ch/prod_456379.html

If you're willing to spend a little more the Corsair RM550x or EVGA G2 550W might be good choices. They're more efficient, full modular and generally higher end units.
