Recommendation for PSU

Last response: in Systems

I had 2 PSU, TX650M. They both failed on me for some reason. 1st one failed after 2 month and 2nd one failed after a year. I know they are great PSUs and defected components are very common occurrence but instead of buying the third one, I would like a recommendation of another PSU that is as equally as good if not better than TX650M. Or should I try my luck and buy the 3rd one because they are good PSUs?

Spec:

Motherboard:
ASUS Z77 Extremem 4

CPU:
Intel Core i5-3570k

Video Card:
XFX R7950

PSU:
Corsair TX650M

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM

Fan:
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler

What are the specs of your system? And do you have power problems in your house?

The HX series is really good as well. But you might try Antec's HCG series, or anything from SeaSonic/XFX will work perfect too.

sorry. I updated the spec.

I don't think I have power problems in my house. How would that affect my computer?

Well you are definitely not overloading you PSUs... Doesn't warranty cover things like this?

The power problems might put a strain on you PSU over time (voltage spikes etc).

Warranty does cover it, but it's my 2nd time already. Is it normal for PSU to be this unpredictable?

Also, PSU failure happened in two different places, so I don't think I have power problem. I have a lot of electrical devices so even if I did have one, I would have noticed already.

3rd time's the charm, right? :D  No but seriously, just get the a replacement from warranty.
