If not, what brand would you recommend? More about : coolermaster extreme power 500w good abekl a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 7:50:55 AM Some of them are OK. many of them are not OK. Check out individual units at http://www.jonnyguru.com/ to be sure. I recommend corsair units to my friends. Edit: I just checked out a review of this unit at http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/728 . Stay away! lilotimz a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 7:58:14 AM Get it if you want it to blow up in your face. Coolermasters bad stigma is the result of PSU lines such as the extreme power which are overpriced, cheap, pos's, that are sold just because of CM's brand name in the desktop case biz.

Best solution abekl a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:02:03 AM Share Yep. The enthusiast series 650 W is an excellent unit and good for most purposes. lilotimz a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:04:33 AM Corsair units are excellent with most of the higher end lines made by Seasonic and the budget / ok lines done by CWT. Anonymous a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:06:33 AM @abekl Corsair TX Series 80Plus* / Bronze 650w <- this one? I guess I'll have to sacrifice some cash for quality. Corsair is just so damn expensive. hehe abekl a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:12:05 AM That's the one. It's worth it in the long run. Of course you can save a few dollars by buying the entry level unit, the builder series, 500W unit. It's really a toss up. lilotimz a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:12:39 AM Corsair TX series are excellent units be it the original version made by CWT or the new TX2 made by seasonic. You're not sacrificing any quality at all. Anonymous a b ) Power supply September 16, 2012 8:14:27 AM Thanks for the advice guys.
