Ok I have a GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 mobo with a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz, I am wanting to OC and I have a crappy PSU atm, so I am getting ready to buy another one and wanted to know if this would be a good one http://www.seventeam.com.tw/product_contentx.php?theme_...
I live in the USA and Seventeam is a power supply company I have never seen, but apparently they are real big in Europe.... or so I'm told atleast lol
Just want to know if I should just go with a roswell or the corsair 750 PSU that EVERYONE seems to love
If i can assume you dont have one dedicated, and that you'll be getting one in the near future, then a 750-800W PSU 'll do you fine. But if you want to stick to bare minimums and yet keep headroom in OC'ing then get a 600W its easier on your pocket
The Seventeam brand is well known as the base manufacturer for several other top name PSU distributers. The other names aren't as important as the brand itself is highly respected here in the US as well. Your system doesn't have much requirement currently as you have listed it, even if you crossfire or sli the amount of wattage of the units you're looking at are more than enough.
Here's the catch, most of the other distributers selling units under their own name which are assembled by Seventeam for them offer (warranties which are 5 times greater than the one year of the unit your listing. I thought there was an error when I saw the one year warranty. If that is an error than go for it great PSU, if one year is right move on get the 5 year warranty.
Manufacturers who only give you one year warranty don't exhibit much faith in their specific product and your left holding the bag. (problems can happen)
This is a way old thread, but I DID get the Seventeam PSU, and I am glad I did, I bought it and an amd/sli board and now I am running two 460 fermi's on the PSU. I haven't seen the 12v rail drop below 12.21 and usually is constant around 12.32, I have had it since June and so far I am very happy with it.
