  1. try to get corsair antec or cm.
  2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014 For roughly the same price you can get a brand name PSU
  3. Actually I browsed for a little bit longer and stumbled upon this Rosewill psu.


    Judging by the reviews it blows the other psu away.

    Anyone have personal experience with this model?
  4. I don't recommend Rosewill ANYTHING. it's a cheep brand of cheep products. spend more money and get a proper brand name PSU.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018 this is another good option PLUS it's modular which is a BIG plus in my book.
  5. Thanks for the help.

    That psu looks perfect for my new build.

    What is the make and model of the components in your build?

    How do you know that the PSU's that have been recommended, so far, meet your requirements?

    Two reputable review sites, that I've read, give the OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W (OCZ700MXSP) a FAIL.
  7. Here's a safe buy and the price is right too!
    Antec Earthwatts Green 650W
    Supply your own power cord.
  8. Apevia makes PSU-shaped objects, that should not be attached to computer components if there is any chance of them being plugged into an A/C power source at the same time. Ancient Rosewill PSUs are almost as bad, but even one of their years-old Stallion models passed Jonnyguru testing.
    A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch!) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax/LEPA are among the better brands. Some OCZ are good, others are not. The best three PSU review sites I've found are HardwareSecrets, Jonnyguru, and HardOCP. Do not rely on consumer reviews (or most of the fluff that passes for reviews around the web), but use competent technical reviews (i.e. with load testing, waveform analysis, and often dissection) to decide what to get. On a budget, the Antec Earthwatts and Corsair Builder series are both good. I have never read a poor competent review of any Seasonic PSU, nor of any Antec (except Basiq <=430W) or Corsair (many of which are made by Seasonic).
