ct1615 is calling me out, cuz he thinks just because i say seasonic isnt as big as corsair, means i didnt know seasonic oem's their psus out to corsair and a few others. i said seasonic wasnt as big, and didnt get as many buys, which im trying to see right now.

I have an FSP Blue Storm II 500W unit for my main PC and an Ultra LS 500W unit on my backup. My FSP has served me well these past few years but I'll need something a little more if I go with another 5870. Yeah, the Ultra was onsale at CompUSA and hey it's only powering a an E2200 and a 3850.

Seventeam has been around for a long time they are not in the mainstream market much these days but they do make some pretty decent units at least they used to.

Two rebranded CWT units from a local PC shop and one no-name unit. My old Athlon XP HTPC has a no-name 20-pin ATX PSU that was pulled from some OEM PIII/S423 P4/Socket A machine that had died. Yeah, I'd have picked a better unit but this one was free and was a pre-ATX12V unit that if the label is correct (hopefully it is :o  ) supplies quite a bit more on the +5V rails than modern PSUs do. It previously had a Lite-On ATX12V unit that it killed before I realized the ASUS A7N8X-E board fed power into the CPU VRMs from +5DVC instead of +12VDC. This no-name unit probably isn't all that bad as has run for about a year and a half with absolutely no issues, unlike the random issues I got with the Lite-On unit's insufficient +5VDC output.

Coolermaster Extreme Power Plus 600 Watt
Coolermaster Extreme Power Plus 500 Watt
Antec Earthwatt 380 Watt
Enermax 375 Watt
OCZ Stealthxstream 600 Watt

All currently working fine, coolermasters are the newer ones, all the Antec 450's are at least 4 years old, the others are at least 2 years old

CM are hit and miss, some are good, some are OK, some are complete garbage.

check reviews before buying one.

July 1, 2010 2:48:22 AM

thats what i thought, but i wouldnt say they are hit and miss, or atleast they seem to be more hits than misses. im not saying they are up to corsair/antec in quality and performance, but they seem to make pretty decent or good psus.
July 1, 2010 2:49:22 AM

1 Antec 400W(probably their basic line, it's a few years old)
2 Antec Earthwatts 380W
1 Cooler Master 400W(just replaced it with 1 of the earthwatts)

would you use this PSU in any computer you owned?

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 600 W

"Why manufacturers like Cooler Master are still carrying power supplies with fake wattages is a mystery to us. We know that this is a very low-end power supply, but this doesn’t give the manufacturer the right to lie. This unit should be labeled as a 450 W unit and sold for half of its price. Being labeled as a 600 W product and sold for USD 70, it is a complete rip-off.

If you pull more than 450 W from this product it will offer real risk to your computer..."


http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX...

here's the Cooler Master Elite Power 460 W

"Cooler Master Elite Power 460 W is simply an Elite Power 400 W with a new label. The two units are absolutely the same (the only component that was upgraded was the rectifying bride, but this change didn’t make any difference in performance). This is simply unbelievable. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this kind of thing still happening in China, but here in the United States? C’mon…"

Cooler Master GX 750 W

doesn't look so good, fails test 4 and 5 on the 3.3v and 5vsb and doesn't keep even 80 plus certification (100% load drops below 80%)

basic rule of purchasing a PSU, if the name on the box is more famous for computer cases...avoid the PSU

750TX, corsair are the best supplies I have ever used, i now run them in every system I build, never ever had a comeback from a corsair PSU (have several hunderd in the wild at the moment)

Used to use a mixture, but just can knock the corsairs!
