  • Fractal Design!

    So I'm slowly but surely thinking of a complete upgrade in near future, as my i3 is choking and has to be replaced with a quad core.

    Now I'm looking at this psu for the time being: https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=63236

    Would you guys recommend it for a budget build? I've read a couple of reviews and they seemed positive and I doubt anyone here has actually got one of these yet. Good prices on them too.

    or ?

    Personally, i probably wouldn't, but i'm a bit of a snob when it comes to PSU's and i think there's possibly better for the same sort of money, they're made by ATNG, which can at times produce ok units, other times not so good ones, they tend to be on the budget end, and use cheaper components like Teapo capacitors

    here's some reviews to help you......

      We've sold lots so far and had no returns, they're definitely a step up from the 20-25 cheapo 650-750w options.

        The XFX PSUs in the same price range should be excellent if they are still using the Seasonic OEM internals.

          Right then. I may as well pay a bit more and get a more reliable psu, Got this in mind: https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=61950

          or the xfx650w. Thanks for the advice folks.

            good info, plus yes, they will be, or should be a step up from the unbranded things

            they are as far as i know, slightly older design platform now, but still solid and good quality build standards

            don't know if more reliable is the best description, see coilers reply above, but, i'd say they haven't been around long enough to gauge long term reliability..... i guess a better description would be to switch to a more established and proven unit.
            the XFX 650w fits that description well, look at the different models xfx has in the 650 range, if i remember the modular was on special not long ago, put the prices a lot closer
