Difference between cheap and Branded SMPS


I just purchased a cooler master 431+ elite chassis , and from past I am using a local chassis (simple ATX cabinet)

and I am using a smps (power supply unit) from a local brand which is very cheap not more than 8$

and as this new chassis comes without smps so thinking to install my old smps

SMPS from Cooler master comes costly I guess 50$ for 400 watt so thinking to avoid purchase that

So is there any problem if I use local smps its fan is no doubt smaller than Cooler master's 120 mm fan

otherwise what I think , that it just works for supplying power to PC's components

tell me if it also gives impact on PC performance.

    What parts?

    Less power, can cause damage to all parts. It can especially damage a graphics card if it is under powered. Infact, in a few months I bet you your entire system will blow up because of that power supply.
  2. Power is same not less I am using simple 946 motherboard with entry level nvidia pci express graphic card

    hmm whats the difference, I am using local from 6 years now, and I believe in what you say
    Last year my wire burnt but smps is running without problem
    But thinking why and how branded won't give problem? and keep me safe.
