Which PSU is better? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I can guarantee that my 520 OCZ is better than the Aspire, Lando will back me up in this one

EDIT: and Yiffy, and I quote YiffyGriffy: "I think any PSU is better than Aspire.. except like Ultra or Powmax"

Now do you think the ultra puts out 10 amps less than a 200 dollar PSU? I don't think so, but, Hideing the brands takes away from the brand flaming and bias due to brands, which I think was a good Idea.
I do think that the pc power and cooling psu will output more than the x-connect... plus it will be more stable while doing it. Because pcpower and cooling is a better company, they put more into their psus and they rate them according to much higher standards and higher operating temps than x-connects. Does that necessarily mean it is worth spending the extra money... not necessarily.

But certain companies have made reputations for making good psus. pc power and cooling, seasonic and enermax are all examples. The reason I wanted to see the make model is because I would take a 500w enermax over a 600w aspire any day (just used as an example)

The brand simply put does make a difference. Of course issues such as # of rails and amp levels are important but not only the features but the construction alone will make a huge difference in the quality and branding is how you know.

Now if you are looking for a new PSU I would say OCZ is a sure thing...mine has been rock solid for a year now, not one hiccup. However, I have been seeing/hearing really good things about the Sunbeam Nuuo

I can second the nuuo. I bought one for my bro's rig and I really like it. It's not as quiet or as efficient as my seasonic, but it looks better! lol. it's a lot cheaper. i would honestly have to say that it's probably the best psu for the money.

Ya you need to know what kind of psu it is your comparing. As alot of psu manufactures rate their psu's and low temperatures and take the maximum output achieved instead of what the psu can do at anytime. I also reccommend not getting the aspire psu. I would rather invest in a stable psu than take a cheap psu thats not stable.

Is that nuuo sold on newegg by any chance?!? looks awsome, and seems like it would be as good as the Powerstream 520W OCZ....
