i have bought the silverstone sst-st60f-p PSU.. initially i wanted to buy xigmatek nrp-pc702 rated at 700w because it is cheaper.. out of curiosity i bought this silverstone unit on impulse and now im worried whether my new system will be ok with this psu.. for the record, my last system is not stable eventhough i am using 550w ( cooler master extreme power plus 550w ).
my old system
intel p2d firstname.lastname@example.org
4gb ddr2 ram
5 JBOD harddisks
6 120mm case fans ( 2 for cpu )
cm gemin11 cooler ( topdown cpu cooler )
and the system is not stable enough.. it frequently just BSOD n my hard disks keep disconnected when ever i plugs new USB devices.
this is my new system i have just bought
asus p8z68-v lx
4gb ddr3 1333mhz
my old 4870* will replace when there are demanding games.. i game at 1600x900
cm hyper 212 evo cooler.
so do my new PSU (silverstone) is better than the old one ( cm 550w extreme pwrplus )?
or xigmatek nrp-pc702 ( 700w ) is better? or cooler master gx 750w better? (both of them falls in my psu budget)
im quite worried because my new psu is only rated 600w and i dont know alot about psu..
The Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W is not a good PSU - doesn't provide what it claims, ripple and noise is high, voltage regulation is loose, so it wouldn't be surprising if that was the cause of instability problems.
The Silverstone Strider Plus 600W SST-ST60F-P doesn't have any of these problems and is more than sufficient to power your build (and probably whatever GPU you buy in the future).
There is no need to buy a higher wattage unit, unless you want to install a second graphics card, which is not really possible/optimal with the Asus P8Z68-V LX.
Do not get the Cooler Master GX-750 as that is again a poor PSU, altho not as bad as the eXtreme Power Plus.
