  1. I've never heard of Apevia before. I wouldn't trust it. It may do it, but reliability and current supply may be insufficient. I'd look at something along the lines of a (more expensive but well proven) Corsair 550w or 650w PSU - can't go wrong.

    The other risk is that even if it does do that, if it blows, it could take some of your system with it. a 560Ti should run on a 450w but then the PSU isn't in its efficiency range (70-80% usage, I think?)

    One of these would be good if you can fork out the extra money.



  2. your recommendations are very good but the only problem is that im going for a green theme in my case to go along with a case ill buy in the future ---> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146079 i can easily get green led fans and such but the green power supply (or one with a green fan) would really top it off. not to mention the uv reactive sleeved cables on it. To my knowledge apevia is pretty trusted, but hey, thats why im asking the community
  3. Apevia is a well known brand, well known for crap.

    That psu is very inneficient and it puts out less than 400w.

    It has 2 rails, one 16a and one 18a. For comparison, my 380w psu has one 16a and one 17a.
  4. ok, jeeze.
    Do you know of any psu that has a green led fan in it that is of a trustworthy brand? too bad that there are almost none, looks really neat
  5. Nope, only know of a blue LED one, but it shouldn't be too hard to stick a green LED fan into a normal PSU, I've done it with my one (Red though), and it's fine. You'll also have to manually do green UV reactive sleeves. It's not too hard.

    xfx had a PSU with a green non-led fan. you may have to look around for it, it was discounted a year or two ago.


    i can see why they discontinued it
  7. by googling old posts on other forums, the only one that came in green prebuilt was This. but this is an old psu and is no longer sold anymore.
  8. Choosing computer parts by color is the dumbest thing I ever heard of.
  9. i dont think ferrari has purple seats and a pink body
