Kaltenbrunner It is only a matter of time until something fails, especially old dried up electrolytic capacitors. The cool thing to do would be to service it, just like a car gets stuff replaced over it's life. But honestly to get quality brand name caps needed, would probably cost $40

Thanks!
Only the cheapest units you can buy today are group regulated since its so outdated
Almost everything good these days are independently regulated

The Seasonic Foucs Plus Gold the Corsair RMx and the EVGA G3 are some of the best options price to performance wise
The Seasonic Prime Ultra is the flagship series and therfore cost more than the Foucs Plus

JMattes Interesting..

I have a Corsair AX850 that I bought in 2012 and the thought of replacing it hasn't even crossed my mind..

Thanks you again!
I was already looking at it, but then i didn't found it on the FAQ about recomended PSU's... https://www.overclock.net/forum/31-p...#user_500-599W

For 99€ do you think it's a good deal the 650W Fully Modular version? https://www.pccomponentes.com/season...s-gold-modular

Thanks

Group regulated means poor voltage regulation which means less stability

Your PSU if you have the bronze rated HX650 is either a Seasonic S12II or an M12II cant recall which but both are group regulated which mean poor voltage regulation
Thanks! Now I understand, and also I've searched about C6 and C7 states and "Haswell Ready" PSU.
I've had this PSU with a 4790K for 5 years and my GPU (980ti) died.... maybe it was about this problem, I'll never now, but now I'm thinking about changing it.

Thanks for your advice!

Nethermir Man I have the same PSU and I am also wondering if I need to replace it. I guess I need to replace it too.
