Cleanest power rails

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi i was thinking about getting a new psu as i think my current one is holding me back, anyway just wanted to know what supply provides good clean low noise rails. Looking at the the ocz stelthxtreme 600w or would it be worth the extra £30 and get the corsair hx 620 for £80 ish.
Cheers Andy

You can't go wrong with a Corsair PSU, although PC Power & Cooling is a nice piece. I have this psu and I can't hear any noise coming from my pc besides the exhaust/intake fans.

Edit: Sorry, I just saw you were from Manchester so I wouldn't know any good sites to buy from over there. Although you may search for power supply by name from site you like to buy hardware.

Any of Corsair's PSUs are better than the OCZ StealthXStream/GamerXStream.

I've also noticed that in the UK there is a pretty big mark-up for the modular Corsairs. You could get a vx550 or a tx650 for a good bit cheaper then the hx620.

most psu's will clean up a bit if you have "dirty power" or dips/spikes, but if you want to be extra safe, and have the extra cash I recommend adding a Power Line Conditioner between your outlet and all other power connections. I picked up a Tripplite 1800W PLC which not only filters EMI/RFI, but has active boost/surpress if line voltage drops or spikes. For me it was worth the investment, others may disagree. I forget how much it was, maybe like 150. The Egg didnt stock it but I got it thru CDW.

Some say you can extend the life of your psu by inserting a gate designed to handle these specific variations, sending a clean constant 120V to your psu always. Sounds like its true but I personally cant prove it.

anyway good luck

Powerline conditioners are definitely not needed for PC. If your PSU can't provide stable output, then the issue is with the PSU. If your outlet voltage/current is varying that much.... call an electrician immediately cause something is SERIOUSLY wrong.
