What's the best PSU for Overclocking and it's reliable?<br>
A power supply that's about 500-600 watts and not exspensive?<br>
It doesn't have to be a household name.Just a good overclocking psu and reliable.Just,got some unexspected bills.So,I've got to get a cheaper PSU now.The one I was getting.I believe is $199.99<br>
My budget now is $75-100.00<br><br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817812001" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817812001</a><br>
I'am the cheapest at 450-550watt PSU,that I can buy.With 20+4 pin and dual-rails.That won't blow-up.LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gunner2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Grouphug"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

Those single rail PCP&C's are the best you can get right now. I prefer them to be single rail actually <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Hey, the Sunbeam NUUO 550W is a great PSU! \\/ \\/ \\/ only $85-$90. Performs well.

The absolute best in the 600w range and a budget of $200 or less, it's the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W: <a href="http://www.pcpowercooling.com/products/viewproduct.php?show=S61EPS" target="_blank">http://www.pcpowercooling.com/produc...hp?show=S61EPS</a><br><br>
One of the few Chozart has mentioned but I believe that's the absolute best.<br>
My 750W Silencer is ultra quiet and it's reliable, very inexpensive for what I got.

The NUUO is ok also, but I've heard from a couple of members here that theirs failed. Also, the Antec TPII has just that extra little bit of current on the 12V rails that might matter in the future.<br><br>
Plus, I don't like modular <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I'd go with either the FSP 450w or a nuuo 550w. I've got both and am happy with both <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">
