    can you tell me why?
  3. The Cougar RS650 made the PSU Lemon List I maintain:

    Scroll down to the Cougar section and you will see a brief summary of problems with the psu. You can follow the links to a competent technical that uncovered the problems.
  4. what can you say about CORSAIR TX 550WATTS? is it better than antec 550vp?
  5. YES!
  6. can you also compare it to LITEPOWER 600WATTS?
  7. yah corsair tx550 better than antec VP550p (basic) but not cheap

    can you also compare the corsair tx550 to LITEPOWER 600WATTS?
  9. don't too many choise, the tx550 W is absolutly better than above
  10. Do you mean the Corsair Enthusiast Series, Model CMPSU-550TXM? That model did very well when subjected to rigorous testing and in-depth component analysis:

    Scroll down to the Corsair Section where you will find links to 6 competent technical reviews.
  11. general rule of thumb; stick with antec, corsair,seasonic, xfx.
  12. ^5 +1 what looniam said! :)
  13. why not thermaltake too?
  14. thermaltake is good too , but some model like ..Though Power XT and not LITEPOWER
  15. There are three versions of the Thermaltake Litepower 600 watt power supply. There is no record of any competent technical reviews of those three models. That does not mean mean they are bad power supplies. It just means the models were never subjected to rigorous testing and in-depth analysis. With several thousand psu's available there are quite a few that are not tested.
