I can get the VP500P locally for 55$ or the Corsair CX450 modular for 58$ inc. shipping. the price difference is not what bothers me, it's just that when I buy locally I can get warranty. I don't live in the US so I'm not sure it's a good idea to get a PSU from abroad.The only one there i would look at is thr antec vp, but id still lean towards a corsair cx
What's going on guys I just saw this post from Tom's Hardware forum:
They say CX series is VERY LOW quality and that I should get the EVGA?! Ah it's one of those times I should've simply ordered and let it be, now I have no idea what to choose
Notice the age of that thread is 5 years old. A lot has changed to the Corsair CX lineup in the past 5 years.They say CX series is VERY LOW quality and that I should get the EVGA?! Ah it's one of those times I should've simply ordered and let it be, now I have no idea what to choose
Get the Corsair CX550Guys since I haven't purchased the PSU yet, and from some reason it's really fun to get to know this world of hardware and all the available brands / components, I just came across this PSU - be Quiet! Pure Power 11:
Also it seem to have 2 models: BN626 and BN628 and both are called "gold" - what's the difference?
Btw I found this PSU on this cool TIER-sorted list:
So which one would you prefer? The Corsair or this Be Quiet (As the word "quiet" always catches the eyes 👀)
That's the first PSU I suggested and they told me to stay away from it (Unless the RGB version of the SMART is higher quality than the non-RGB SMART?)Thermaltake Smart RGB 80+ White are not the worst units tbh they use a mix of 1 main capacitor i believe is nichicon is the main and the rest is teapo and for some reason its not rated as a bronze unit
the thermaltake lite units though are garbage.
Alright, and since I really enjoy this topic and just keep finding cool looking PSUs, what is your opinion on this FSP: (I heard FSPs are good)I'm not touching those. Unless you get a great deal on a SeaSonic S12II/M12II (not III), I'm not buying a group-regulated PSU in 2019 going into 2020.
the rgb one is the newer model and better venting and is more cleaner then the originals
Meh. It's a bit of an upgrade from the old hec series, but the recent White Smarts still appear to be mostly be a slightly updated Shenzhen-made, group-regulated PSU, just not as ancient as the previous ones. If you don't look at the coils, you can see it in the mediocre +12V.the rgb one is the newer model and better venting and is more cleaner then the originals
the orginal smart were very packed together inside
its a redesign with some improvements which will make all the difference
heres the new smart 2018
vs the old smart 2012
