  • I have had for the last few years an OCZ SXS 600w PSU, it has been awesome. Unfortunately with my new upgrades it wont be strong enough, but I will hopefully sell it and get some money for it.

    • Corsair definitely, I have a 450w VX series.
      Brilliant, has a lifetime warranty I believe? Never had any trouble with it whatsoever.

      • OCZ.

        Got a BeQuiet will see how reliable that lasts, should hope for at least 6 years, but only 2-3 year warranty. We shall see.

        • Enermax, shame they are expensive. Corsair and XFX are good as well.

          • I've been running a 750W OCZ Fatal1ty for about 18 months, never had an issue with it in of itself, but I've found with a lot of their modular line the cables are sometimes a bit short. Plus all the connectors seem orientated for a top mounted PSU.

            OCZ are the most common choice for most of the budget and mid-range builds I do though.

            Corsair I find are a must for the really high end builds, up at the 1K+ end their power output seems to be a bit cleaner than any other I've tried.

            Only done one build with a BeQuiet so far, I've been fairly impressed but its early days yet. Ask me again in 6 months once the machine has been thrashed a bit

            • Well im thinking it has to be Seasonic, i have never owned on, but i have owned ones they make for other brands like

              Antec
              Corsair
              Nxzt
              and no doubt many more

              But from ones that i have owned the for me;
              OCZ, best value for money for anyone on a budget, you wont go far wrong if you dont overclock to the extream
              Corsair worth the extra for the 7 year warranty cant be bad, and there better ones made by Seasonic
              Hyper have always been good value too and found them to be rock solid

                • Corsair are my faves so far, but XFX and Seasonic are a close second

                  (XFX are Seasonics right?)

                    VX have 5 years according to this: http://www.corsair.com/support/warranty/ (Scroll down to Power Supplies.) That is pretty decent for a lower end unit.

                    No PSU maker in the UK offers a lifetime warranty, Corsairs HX and AX are 7 years which is very good and then for Corsair it is a sliding scale with 5 years for their midrange PSUs and 3 for their value stuff.

                        Off hand I don't know but I'd assume BFG might of done before they went under, or OCZ, both for US customers only.

                        • I always liked Hiper .. all my self-builds used their PSUs and are still powering away no bother in 2-6yr old systems.

                          Shame they went belly up

                          • I've choosen Corsair, OCZ and Silverstone...

                            I have two AX1200 units and both I can not fault at all. I have had OCZ and Silverstone units in the past and now I'm looking at different setups my needs and requirements are changing. I've recently just bought a 530w L8 Be Quiet unit, so I'll be interested in finding out what that is like. I'm still looking for lower powered units (around 300w) but there seems to be very few around with that meet my requirements. I'm also looking for a few other units as well, so I will be interested in finding out some alternate models

                            I hear nothing but good comments/experiences with Enermax and I think back some years ago I did have one!

                            I can't say I was impressed with PC Power and Cooling units as I had two 1200w models and they both went bang.. The RMA process was good (even though admittedly one took 8 months to get a replacement for but the gent I was dealing with left!!) but I wouldn't have another or recommend one either.. I think they are a bit over priced and some what unrealiable

                              • It looks like corsair is a leader of the PSU. I have an experience with a reclaim for this brand. It wasn't too bad, I get a new one in the very well sealed package. But one bad thing is the cost to send it to Netherland for 22.00 that's question me should Corsair pay or cover it? But over all I satisfy with it.
