No problems at all. | Report abuse xcel_jkl August 11, 2010 5:50:59 AM But between the corsair vx550 and the silverstone st50f 500w, i was wondering which would be the best choice taking into consideration the ~$15 price difference.. Thanks | Report abuse WR2 Power supply Master August 11, 2010 5:58:53 AM The Corsair 550VX is the better and more powerful PSU. But is it worth an extra $15? Thats a value judgement for you to make. The SilverStone ST50F 500W is a good PSU, has enough power for your system and would be a safe choice.

Is this something to be alarmed about? | Report abuse Best solution WR2 Power supply Master August 11, 2010 3:12:42 PM Not at all. CWT made the PSU to the specifications Corsair ordered. If there was a performance or quality issue with the Corsair 550VX it would have long ago been noticed by the independent reviewers. | Report abuse xcel_jkl August 30, 2010 9:52:54 AM Best answer selected by xcel_jkl. | Report abuse Mousemonkey Power supply Expert August 30, 2010 11:53:25 AM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Corsair vx 550> Related ressources: ForumCorsair VX550 turned-off power consumption ForumCorsair 550vx ,600HX,600tx WHICH ONE CONSUMES LESS POWER ForumCorsair 550vx ForumCorsair VX550 W vs competition ForumCorsair H70 and Corsair VX550 ForumCorsair VX550 W sufficient?
