Which one?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I desperately need a new PSU, and I have kind of a low budget (40-70)
I found a couple of 500 Watt PSU's and was wondering which one is better?

Aspire 500 watt

Or

Logisys 500 Watt

If you think neither of them are good, do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

Save up another $10 and get a Sunbeam NUUO 550W. $80.50 at NewEgg, plus shipping.

I would stay away from the Logisys.

The Aspire has dual 12V rails with 16A and 18A respectively.

Specs Here

3.3V@17A
+5V@25A
+12V1@16A
+12V2@18A
-5V@0.5A
-12V@0.8A
+5VSB@3.0A

No other line data available.


You have a lot of powerful components and want to purchase a very cheap psu? This makes no sense to me. My advice is to save up a few dollars more and go with the Fortron FSP500-60HLN

http://www.fsp-group.com.tw/english/...d=52&proid=360


+3.3V30.0A±5%100 mV P-P
+5V 30.0A±5%100 mV P-P
+12V1 18.0A±5%200 mV P-P
+12V218.0A±5%200 mV P-P
-12V 0.5A±10%200 mV P-P
+5Vsb2.0A±5%100 mV P-P

Edit: That Sunbeam looks rather good too.

Haha, no this is for my other computer, it's componets aren't as powerful. And, I don't have that much money, that's all.

Ah. Well, the Aspire did not look bad at all. I just could not find any other line data.

ASPIRE ALL THE WAY! It has dual +12 rails, and each is almost better than the logisys one.
