Cooler Master Storm Scout + PSU Deal

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I saw this deal for a Cooler Master Storm Scout case + PSU earlier today on ebuyer.
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/177749
I was wondering if this PSU would be good enough for my new i7 build with a 5850 or would it just wear out in a years time?
I am open to suggestions for other Power Supplies but I am on a tight budget for the PSU (£50-£80).
Some feedback would be great, Thanks.

Based on this article, the 700W Silent Pro M is actually a decent power supply. But due to the +12V rail's capacity, it's actually more of a decent 600W power supply. However, that's still more than enough for the intended build.

Here's more (it's an excerpt from the article I linked above):

This is the first non-EOL PSU lineup from CoolerMaster that I can't immediately hate, surprising since it's from ACBel, who churn out the egregious EPP line. The Silent Pro M lineup has decent, if not spectacular performance and can actually keep its ripple under control, something that CoolerMaster seems to have trouble with. Unfortunately, though the marketing claims a "single, powerful +12V rail" that rail seems a bit weak considering it's rated at only 40A and 50A for the 600W and 700W versions, respectively, making them 500W and 600W power supplies under realistic load patterns. With that in mind, they cost more than better-performing units of similar wattage from Corsair and Antec, making them mostly pointless.

Further Reading
In other words, it sounds like it should be absolutely fine. But now if you were thinking of buying it separately, then I would probably be recommending that you look at other power supplies. I mean since this PSU is a part of this combo deal, the cost of the PSU in this deal is probably right about where it should be as opposed to what it normally sells for alone which I think makes this a fairly solid purchase.

You're welcome! I hope it works out really well. And according to the AMD page below, it looks like it would even be perfectly fine for a system with two 5850s in it!

That PSU is fine.

Just not the best.

Still, far better than CM's crappy eXtreme Power Plus line.
