Need Recommendations for a PSU Unit

Ok, I've determined that I do need a new PSU for my computer. I am looking for recommendations for a 400w+ PSU with the following characteristics:
Low Noise
Under $50 including shipping

Any recommendations would be welcomed thanks!!!
Please also list the site at which the PSU is sold.

  1. Low noise? Not too much? Try the Enlight 420 watt PSU with 2 fans and temperature control. i'm using one right now on my hyper overclocked 1700+, works like a dream

    Instead of Rdram, why not just merge 4 Sdram channels...
  2. <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=17-103-604-05.jpg/17-103-604-06.jpg/17-103-604-07.jpg/17-103-604-04.JPG" target="_new">Is it this one?</A>
  3. yes

  4. I just got <A HREF="http://www.qtec.info/products/product.htm?artnr=13025" target="_new"> this </A> very cheap yet good psu :)
  5. Where do they sell that? I could only find it on UK websites.
  6. Forgot about QTec, I saw a review of it on Mikhailtech.com, but it didn't come too cheaply

  7. The Antec True Series power supplies are also very quiet and very good.
  8. Yes, I know that. The problem is they are really expensive also...
  9. they are no more or no less expensive than the enermax's
  10. Yes, I understand that its no more expensive than enermax's. I also thank you for your help, but you don't seem to understand that nobody is comparing top of the line PSUs. I just want a stable and quite psu that can get the job done. I've had good experiences with generic psu's too. The one I currently have is Codegen, its quite but its only 300w. Online its hard to distinguish which ones are crap and which are good. The local computer store wants to charge $55 for some crappy 400w DT brand. The most I want to spend is $50. Enermax and Antec PSUs are around $70. If you can link me to a site which sells antec or enermax's psus at around $50, I'd be glad to buy that.
  11. Ok, try this

    Channelwell Technology 420 watt $45

    <A HREF="http://www.Newegg.com" target="_new">http://www.Newegg.com</A>
    Thermaltake 360 watt $48
    Enlight 420 watt $46
    Allied 400 watt $39

    Those are all pretty good value power supplies, i've used all but the Thermaltake, but they seem to get good reviews if you look around

  12. Quiet, they are, yes, but they aren't that great. Ask Crashman, ask others that have had it, myself included. They crap out under load and overclocking, and have low voltage rails

  13. I've already ordered the Enlight. Funny thing is, I was already looking at it before this thread, but I wasn't sure how noisy it was. Thanks for the help.
  14. Good power supply, quiet, and you can hook the 3 pin lead into the motherboard for fan control

  15. Didnt know Q-tec wasnt available in the u s just thought id mention it coz its solved my problem, i was runnin a standard 300w psu and couldnt get my rad9700pro to run stable but now this 550w monster only set me back £30 $45? i can run an extra dvd drive and fans with no prob :D
  16. I'm not a huge fan of a company that I can't even <b>find</b> easily in the US. I'm sure it's decent, but honestly, I wouldn't buy the thing seeing as my current PSU was cheap and runs circles around an Antec Truepower of higher wattage rating

  17. What powersupply is that ??

  18. The QTec 550 watt PSU was hard to find in the United States. I have the Enlight 420 watt power supply (relatively common)

  19. I've been using it (Enlight 420W) and it's very quiet.

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
