Shuttle PC63 500W PSU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, was just wondering about what people think about this PSU.

Is it of decent quality? It's rated as 80plus, but you never know.

I'm asking because I'm thinking of throwing together a SB SSF build sometime with a decent GPU, maybe looking GTX 580, and I'm wondering about the viability of such plans.

Just trying to avoid having a situation which some have found themselves in with the silverstone SFX PSU and high powered components.

Thanks

Not a clue. You could open it up for me to take a look.

It's a potential build atm, don't have any parts Just throwing ideas around to try get a good idea of how things would work out.

I've seen a couple of examples around the webz of people putting GTX 580, 295s etc in the i7 XPC shuttle barebones (uses this PSU) and so far nothing of such setups conking out, so hopefully it is a decent enough PSU to be possible.

But if/when I get it I'll open it up and take a few snaps so you can check it out, if I remember!

Shuttle PSUs are usually rated constant output. I know that in the past people have put some crazy parts inside Shuttle boxes with low wattage PSUs - was really amazing to enthusiasts who were accustomed to "needing" high wattage PSUs.

Only drawbacks are high prices of replacement units, and frequent reports of units not lasting long.
