Nope... it is not.ye i read about it thats why im worried.But this is 5 years old .Maybe now the quality and the products are better
That what i hope at least
You could also consider how expensive it could end up becmoning, if the PSU fails. When cheap PSUs fail, they often damage or kills other hardware - for example the graphics card would be at risk, but also the entire system in general.The thing is i dont have the money to change the PSU right now. So is it really that bad to use this for a while ?
Is your PC a Pre-built or you built it yourself? if you want to know if the PSU handles you PC well set your GPU fan speed to 80~100% and run Unigine Heaven at Extreme quality preset and leave it running for a whole night (10~12 hours), If the PSU doesn't fails or your PC shuts down or you notice major power consumption drops in the GPU then it's going bad, replace it as quick as possible...Sorry but my english arent so good so i dont know how to explain this. The pc has 3 years warranty (im not sure if i used the word correctly) so the will replace the whole system. And im thinking to use this for a while until i manage to gain some money to change to corsair PSU probably
What are your thoughts ?
That's even worse than the one you have now... that CX550 you linked would be the one worth upgrading to.I opened up the old pc my sister was using and i found this PSU https://www.e-shop.gr/deer-dr-500btx-500w-12cm-fan-p-PER.663428 . Is it good ? Does it worth to change into this ?
We have this pc at least 10 years
Ouch!I opened up the old pc my sister was using and i found this PSU https://www.e-shop.gr/deer-dr-500btx-500w-12cm-fan-p-PER.663428 . Is it good ?
I honestly didn't know Deer was still a thing. Too bad that it is.Ouch!
That's worse than your FORCE PSU, which wasn't very good to begin with.
Greece is funny. While it's part of the EU, it doesn't adhere to the typical EU standards for safety and quality. You should make sure whatever PSU you use has at least CE markings.
