OCZ Stealthstream500w VS Antec BP500w

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Which PSU is better?
OCZ OCZ Stealthstream500watt VS Antec Basiq BP500w?

I looked them up on Hardwaresecrets and both got good reviews?

If they are the same price, which one should I choose?

I'd probably pick the OCZ myself but only grudgingly. If you can get a StealthXStream II rather than a StealthXStream, do that. Do you really have no other options?

What's the difference between SXS 1 and SXS 2?

Number of PCIe cables?

Those are the best PSUs I can find for $30-$36 max.

The difference is that 2 is performs better than 1 I don't know if there is a difference in terms of cables.

They are the same platforms. So essentially they are the same supplies at core. Both are quite mediocre. They are alright but not great...

If these are your only options, the OCZ would be the way to go.

Whatever differences exist between the two, the OCZ does come out on top. It has better ripple suppression and a couple other better attributes.
