Raidmax Hybrid 730w

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I bought this PSU for my Sig Rig and a few of my friends told me it can't handle my system and will fry and possibly mess other components up. Can you guys give me your opinion? Thanks!

Last I heard it was an overrated Andyson 450W. So, yes it will run your system, no it's not a quality power supply, and it probably wouldn't handle CrossFire or anything like that.

There's a saying around here:

"If it's a Raidmax, it's a no-no."

It's not a "DO IT NAOUGHW or your rig will die instantly" type of deal; but it should be fairly high up on your upgrade list. Definitely ahead of anything that would add much power consumption.

I will RMA or sell it then. No big deal. smile.gif

Let me give you guys a better explanation of my scenario and maybe it will help you help me. lol

I had $550 left on my budget and I still needed to get my CPU, Motherboard, PSU, and Case. My original plans were to get an i7 2600K, ASUS Sabertooth Board, Corsair 750w HX, and NZXT Phantom. Obviously, I didn't have enough money for all of that so I had to downgrade a few things. I kept the budget including the Phantom and Sabertooth, but I had to go with an i5 2500K instead of the 2600K. That only left me with around $50-$60 so I bought the best PSU that I had money for. As of now, my budget is nothing because I still have to buy my CPU/Mobo/Case. lol

What I can do, though, is return the PSU and also return my Thermalright Archon + TY-140's. That will give me around $150. I can use $120 or so to buy a nice PSU and add the other $30 onto my Motherboard budget. I can just use the stock cooler for now and I'll upgrade it later.

NewEgg has some great PSU deals, atm. They have the Seasonic 750w Gold for $129, Corsair 850w TX for $109, and 10% Off on all of their other PSU's. What would be my best option?

You should be able to CrossFire 6850s on a 650W, maybe even a 550W, I don't recall the precise power consumption for those cards.

Skip the TX850, that's not a steal and it's gross overkill.

I'd say the X650 on that budget, except the X750 is cheaper. tongue.gif
