I need a PSU for my upcoming build.
Tacens is a spanish brand, I'm portuguese and I found that PSU for 42€ which I immediately thought was one of those cheap PSUs that will blow my pc up.

I plan using this with a GTX970 + 4690k with some overclock.
But further inspection says that the PSU is 80+ silver?

Here is the site: http://www.tacens.es/fuentes-de-alimentacion/fuentes/radix-vii-ag/

And here is a picture of the side of the PSU:

Is this a great PSU for the price or is it utterly crap?

I'd have no clue who made it so I'd say utter horse crap

As others have stated, the topic has been beaten to death. The horse is not just dead, it's rotted away, its flesh gone, and the bones turned to dust. We're not just beating the dead horse, we're beating the ground hard enough and for long enough to create a crater rivaling those from the Moon.

First off its not a 600 watt unit as the 12v rail can only do 504 watts.
Second and i quote RealHardTechX advises against buying power supplies from this brand.

The OEM on the unit you bought is Andyson so i am pretty sure its junk, but since there are no reveiws i cant confirm that.
Send it back if you still can.

OME on that one is Andyson.

Tacens uses either HEC Andyson or Huntkey which means some of the worst OEM´s.

Thanks guys.
I think I'll just buy the XFX TS 550W since I know the OEM is Seasonic!

I've got 2 of those PSUs, they arend as bad as a 20$ cheapo PSU, but they're a scam.
They ARE NOT 80Plus Silver, not even 80 Plus.
And they can only do 504W (as shilka said).
They are not bad PSUs for Office PCs and basic stuff. Not for Gaming/Overclocking.
Better buy that XFX

I'll definately get the XFX.
I got fooled by the 80+ silver. If its not silver or even 80+ how do they put it there?

They sent to the reviewers PSUs made by other OEM (those were the real 80Plus Silver rated units, from FSP i think...) but then they sold units made from other OEM (Andyson)
So yea, it was a scam, they just changed the OEM but not the name of the PSU...

Why 80 PLUS® is Irrelevant to You When Buying a PSU
80 plus has NOTHING to do with quality rated output or stability.

And many companies cheat if they think they can get away with it.
The Raidmax AE is sold as 80 plus gold despite that it can just hit bronze levels, and yes its another Andyson made series.
