  • New Power Supply - Recommendations

    Hi there,
    I need to buy myself a good psu soon and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations around the 600/650W range.
    A modular power supply would be a big plus however is not absolutely vital.

          I have the 650W XFX PSU and highly recommend it.

            These are the two cheapest 600-650w modular power supplies other than Arianet stuff, I'm not sure what the Arianet stuff is like to be honest. Both of these are good though. Obviously you pay a premium for a modular PSU but think of the better airflow with less cables hanging around

                A friend of mine said about the xfx one too so it will certainly be worth a look at when the time comes...

                Just waiting to get some money for it at the moment.

                    I have heard from a mate(who reads everything about all the new stuff) that OCZ have been a little shoddy of late compared to how they have been in the past but I can't say that with any personal experience, they have always been OK for me, having said that, the last OCZ stuff I had was DDR memory about 3 or 4 years ago, still works fine today.

                      I bought some OCZ ddr ram ages ago and it works great! I agree it seems to be their new stuff that is lower quality.

                        I have ocz ram in my computer that I bought a while ago.
                        Shame if ocz as a whole is starting to go downhill.

                          After trying a Corsair psu for the first time a few months ago I would have to recommend them excellent quality and performance.

                              It would appear the Arianet 650W Modular PSU is a Powercool.

                              Other sites seem to sell it for prices ranging from mid 40's to late 50's.

                              The figures given for it seem to suggest 520W of the 650 is assigned to the 12v rails - so 43W total.

                              I probably wouldnt run high end graphics cards on it, but it could do for a budget modular unit for a mid range machine.
                              Removed my picture as I have now sold it all
