Getting new PSU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay my current PSU is starting to worry me, and by that I mean my lights are starting to blink sometimes, even the ones in the PSU, which concerns me greatly. I am looking at a 150$ ish price range, shoot me suggestions, I was thinking the PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610W. I would like something that would probably be able to go into my next build that I will be doing around the beginning of next year.

LOL! I loved that PSU, served me well for 4 years till I got a new case and power supply. Never had any blinking.

I would second the corsair 620HX

Corsair 620W indeed.

Or (probably even better):

But not modular.

your computer is only as good as your PSU

i recommend getting the best, which is PC Power & Cooling QUAD 750 Silencer; you can get one for around $160 on ebay -new

Any proof why that's the best? It's third tier on Jonnyguru.com, hardly in the top (neither are the silverstone and the Corsair obviously).

The (server quality) PSU in your price range is actually the venerable, and often overlooked, Silverstone Zeus 560W. Although "only" 38A on the 12V rail, it's first tier on jonnyguru.com, and can handle any right up to SLI 7900GTX (and thus a single 8800 series card with ease)
