Power Supply for i3/H55 HTPC Tags: New Build Antec Power Supplies Systems Last response: May 18, 2010 2:50 PM in Systems Share Tzuel May 18, 2010 2:21:50 PM Hey all, Looking to finalize a PS for my i3/H55 HTPC. The system will be driving: i3 530 GA-H55M-UD2H 2x2 GB Kingston ValueRAM Lite-On Bluray drive 40 GB Intel SSD 1 TB WD Caviar Black HDD (eventual swap out for e-sata external drive) I have narrowed down my choices to: (1)/(2) Antec EarthWatts 380W/430W ($60/$80 CDN) (3) Corsair CMPSU-400CX 400 Watt w/ 120mm Fan ($70 CDN with $10 MIR) Given that I will be putting this system into an Antec Fusion Remote Black, should I stick with an Antec PS? Is there any need to go 430W over 380W? Thanks in advance. More about : power supply h55 htpc MadAdmiral May 18, 2010 2:44:50 PM I'd get the Antec. It's an excellent HTPC PSU. You shouldn't need more than the 380W. The remote you're using has nothing to do with the PSU. m 0 l rwpritchett a b ) Power supply May 18, 2010 2:45:50 PM All three are good choices and will easily power your HTPC. I suggest you go for the cheapest one you can find. Newegg.ca has the Corsair for $51.49 w/$10 MIR ... and they have the 380W Antec for $41.49 m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

MadAdmiral, I wasn't worried about the remote, more than the fit/cabling within the Antec Fusion box itself. rwpritchett, my prices are a bit higher as they come from a local shop that I prefer to support when I can.
