I need a reliable but not powerful psu. - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Thread Starter 
Now I know everyone jumps to the conclusion that the $70 corsairs and pc cooling and things are the only way to go, but my mushkin is going on 3 years old in my sig rig. I have a 2 year old rosewill thats doing fine.

*EDIT*

May not be rock solid, but it'll work well enough considering the price.

Yes we like to recommend good PSUs but there is also a big difference between the Rosewill or Mushkin when compared to that Logisys POS. The Rosewill and Mushkin are average to slightly below average most of the time and the Logisys is just plain bad.

Since you don't want MIR, you are going to be limited to like a low end FSP. There really isn't much at this level. If you bumped up to like $45 then I could find some decent PSUs like this one: http://www.directron.com/rs460pmsra3.html

Yup something like that. It is built by FSP and isn't too bad. It still isn't what I would pick to run 24/7 under load but your budget doesn't leave much room to work with.

O I know that, I am not intending to be foolish about it. I was just making a general point that on this forum we all tend to be a bit of an elitist about things. This rig doesn't need a 500W 50A railed psu. I may have to up my limit, there is just piles of you know what in my price range.

My other option is of coarse to find a used antec earthwatt here on ocn or something.

haha I'm going off based on the $35 shipped budget. An extra $10 will def get you a much more reliable PSU.. this looks like a decent 500W PSU for $45 shipped.

like someone else said, there really aren't to many options at this price range

Thats another one I have been checking out actually.


Power calculator says I need about 335W with a q6600 @ 3.6ghz. I like to leave about 15% extra so 380W+...figured 400W to be extra safe. I guess I will have to up my budget, lets say we stop at $50 shipped thats absolutely it.
