This PSU Any good?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Heya guys! I'm gettin a new psu in the near future and i've found one that appeals to me! not only will it remove my hot spot near my 5" bays but hopefully it'll let me push over my 2.7ghz limit when combined with some better ram!

Superflow 4 fan 530 psu

Thnx guys!

I would go for a name-brand company when buying a PSU.

Some good brands are Antec Enermax OCZ and Seasonic.

Hmm, sounds a little generic for me...

I had some super flower fans in my case for a while and they were crap. They would change rpms, they were loud, and eventually died on me. Go with seasonic or OCZ.

too many fans--you only need one large fan--super flower is a major mfr of all things PC--but that doesn't inspire much confidence--depends on your budget, but SEAsonic is excellent as is PC Power & Cooling

I noticed you like lights and fans,
Try the Aspire 680W, its got more power than most and plenty of lights and fans to keep you happy. I just got one myself and I love it.

I've been running one of Super DFlowers 350watt Psu's for the last year now and it manages to keep me stable at 2.6, i run a superflower case as well but i'm thinken about gettin a new case with a new psu and some decent ram. Thing is most the PSUs u guys recommend are like $200+ in aust, which is nearly as much as my weekly pay , i'll check itwarehouse out and see if they have any decent branded PSUs.
