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.

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.

Thank you for your response and the links Gilles. Are your suggestions limited by the stores I mentioned? I ask because I have added a few more stores I can purchase from.

If purchase location wasn't a restriction would your recommendations change?

 

I shall read the review and add it to my shortlist. Thanks

No problem, and I think you already figured it out, but toppreise.ch is just a price comparison site for Switzerland like geizhals.de for Germany/EU and pcpartpicker.com for the US/Canada.

Corsair RM 550x.
Or EVGA 550 G2.

Ask no more, just find it and buy it tongue.gif

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?

Thank you. This is a great way to have short and clean links because we can still hover over the link to see if we can trust where we'll be going if we click it.

 

Also, you don't have to type the code manually. Just click the Insert Link button.

Correct. If you use the link button, you type in (or copy/paste) the URL you want the link to go to. After that, something like this pops up:
Code:
[URL=http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/03/08/rosewill_quark550_550w_power_supply_review/1]http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/03/08/rosewill_quark550_550w_power_supply_review/1[/URL]
The second set of the URL will be highlighted for you to delete it and replace it with the "HardOCP" I did.
Basically, after the close bracket, replace that text with what you want
Code:
[URL=http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/03/08/rosewill_quark550_550w_power_supply_review/1]//here\\http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/03/08/rosewill_quark550_550w_power_supply_review/1//to here\\[/URL]

Hi everybody. Has anyone here heard of HiPoint power supplies? I usually avoid unpopular branded PSUs like the plague but you never know... Also, does the sticker on the side imply that this PSU is 1000W, 550W, or what? Another thing - there seems to be only a 6 pin for PCIe cards, but there's an 8 pin for CPU power, then along the same cable there's another 4 pin for CPU power! I've never seen anything like it.

Here's some pictures. Sorry for the bad quality, I had bad lighting, with access to only a phone camera, and I'm not the best photographer either:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



I inherited this from a guy who's giving me a bunch of his old server hardware. He said this PSU stayed in its box and is hardly/not at all used, however.

Can't find much information on it at all. And them not even indicating what wattage it is isn't exactly reassuring.

I personally wouldn't use it.

Indeed, that's why I came here! I couldn't find anything on HiPoint PSUs, and barely anything on HiPoint as any sort of brand for anything else at all!

That glossy outer shell almost always means junk. Maybe there is an exception.
