Just ordered a Sunbeam Nuuo! Anybody have it already?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all your opinions people after my dumb, cheap, and semi-worthless (I can always take the UV cables and the fans =P) Ultra PSU exploded on me in the middle of watching a video. If you must know, it was a Splinter Cell 4 video.

Anyway, I was also surprised my dad didn't get the slightest mad at me for having to get a new PSU after we went back and forth to Fry's three times so I can get an Ultra that looks the best; I figured they will all perform the same anyway ^^; I think I caught him when he was tired...gotta make a note of that when I want to buy that Farrari =D

Does anybody else have this PSU? I heard it's very godly and all, and I want to hear your input on this sexy PSU (I ordered the black one).

Alright, thanks y'all once more, and I'll check back for replies soon.

The Sunbeam NUUO is getting such a good reputation. Like everyone says for the price it is nothing can beat it. So many people on this forum recommend it. I wish I had one.

EDIT: Lol, I have the PSU that blew up on you! Hope it doesn't do the same for me!
Hate to hijack the thread but is anything important on the +5VSB rail?

...Do you mean was on the rail? lol I'm not godly when it comes it to talking about PSUs, but I'm smart enough to know when it's good or bad overall, and that's what counts! XP

Dude, this thing is awesome. It powers through anything, and I can't get the rails to drop for the life of me. I've tried everthing and they stay stable as a fat dude at the dinner table.

^ lol I like ur analogy there.

All I do hear are good things about the Sunbeam; I can't wait to get it so I can play F.E.A.R. and even CS:S again without this Antec 380W PSU X_x jerking on every other frame.

lol of course I got the 550 one; take a gander at my specs! =D

Besides, the lower wattage ones are out of stock; seems like only the 550 is around these days.
