  • 650W EVGA SuperNova NEX 80PLUS Gold Modular Power Supply

    Anybody know anything about this psu?

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=54096

    Was considering making a purchase for this build I'm ordering

    https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/4l3_HqPZzv0hEBAu2b006Q,,

    currently the wish list contains an xfx psu

    maybe considering a second GPU in a few months time so would it be enough or should I go for a 750w?

    They're both excellent PSUs.

    They both state they have 4 x 8pin PCIExpress power cables, so they both have enough connectors for 2 GPUs.

    650W for a 3570k and 2 x 7870 LE ? Yes it should just about be okay... any lesser brand and I would worry but both XFX and EVGA seem to use very good quality internals (xfx is made by seasonic I believe).

    If you can afford the 750W XFX here : https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=53995
    I would say the peace of mind is worth the extra few £s

        EVGA = FSP? Interesting, I liked FSP when they made their own

          750w XFX is currently not in stock, should I wait or would this be an alternative?

            Depends when XFX are back in stock, and how long you can wait

            The BQ is decent enough, but the XFX is the better unit. If you can't wait, the BQ will be fine

                Really? I use the L8 630 and I've put the same model in builds for two friends too, had no problems at all. Plus it's silent.
                Just not seeing how the XFX unit is any better that's all.

                  BQ + EVGA both use FSP

                  XFX use Seasonic

                  Difference between them?.....well it boils down to warranty and CS for me, and XFX have horrid customer service. Go with BeQuiet or even look for an Enermax or Corsair TX range if you can spare a few more Peso's

                    +1, I'd go for a Corsair TX/HX/AX.
