I've seen Raidmax PSUs blow up and short out on me with my own eyes - if you get one and it does that, don't say I didn't warn you. They are not to be trusted.

And don't take store reviews seriously either - they are completely baseless most of the time. And the reason you don't see a lot of hardware with less than that is two reasons:

1. That new out of the box feeling.

2. People don't really know what they are talking about half the time, or they're afraid to give a negative review.

http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx Raidmax is a Tier 5 PSU maker and to be avoided at all costs. You probably should add a few more weeks of research before asking for opinions and then rejecting them out of hand.

a number of issues:

Raidmax is 2nd or 3rd tier quality in PSUs, and that one is a very old design (like 1996 old) -- it won't have the juice in the right places to work


It has far more amperage on the 3.3v and 5v rails:



the rest of it is fine for an inexpensive computer.

Yeah and I will repeat until I am blue in the face: STORE REVIEWS ARE NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY! And to paraphrase Homer Simpson - Raidmax are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

In fact here's a review from people who know what they're talking about: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-Ex...

Or: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/low-cost-psu-pc-pow...

Jonnyguru.com doesn't even have a single review of a Raidcrap PSU and they're the authority on PSUs. :lol:

Looks like you did great price shopping. Agree that the PSU is not going to cut it.

This CX430 is as cheap as I would go: (it occasionally goes on sale for less)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you get a good, high efficiency Seasonic, Corsair, Antec you can easily get away with 300w on this build.

You might be able to find something cheaper from OCZ or Thermaltake thats an OK product. I would err on slightly higher wattage with other brands.

You could also get the Antec Earthwatts 380 and it'd be a *FAR* superior PSU to any Raidmax garbage you could buy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I actually think the EA-380 would be a better PSU than the CX430 would be.

Everything is compatible and at least you picked a PSU in the next tier up :lol:  Case is kinda tiny, but you have to sacrifice somewhere. What are you using this pc for?

The PSU is certainly better than Raidmax junk. That's a bit better build than the last time but for that kind of budget you have to sacrifice somewhere. And why Amazon? I don't get it.

That build is compatible but don't expect a 7750 to get max settings - you'll probably get medium high - high at the most.

unit, you are misunderstood, believe me the 7750 with g850 easily run cod5 max. And cod4, my friend can max cod5 with an amd athlon ii x3 and hd 6670

both are leagues behind a 7750 g850 setup. Once again sadly you are mistaken. thanks elgibe. Im ordering peace.
