Not sure what PSUs you're talking about. I jumped in when the Antec used ones were the only ones used posted, and no, those aren't anywhere near 11 years. Even the Gold rated unit I linked to made by SeaSonic is only warrantied for 10, but none the less, a bargain at 67 GBP.Do you know that these psus have 11 year life span 100,000hours so its ok if the psu is 1 year old or even 2
Lol its not cheap its like 48£ cooler master psu here is item number on ebay 143381311960What country are you in?
Virtually all cheap cooler master PSUs are very poor quality and could fail.
The Corsair VS orange units are very very notorious for failure. Heavily loading a vs450 with a card its not designed to handle could be fatal to your hardware.
Ok, so it's overpriced then. For ~£15 more you can get much better PSUs, e.g. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/Y3X2FT/evga-supernova-g3-eu-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0550-y3Lol its not cheap its like 48£ cooler master psu here is item number on ebay 143381311960

So u sayin the cx500 is a bad unit. My brother is using the cx550 right now with his gtx1070ti and i5 8400 its absolutly perfect. Shows u know nothing. Plus the cx650 is overkill for a gtx 670 m8Overpriced? The PSUs cost more because way more quality goes into them.
You get what you pay for! Low price = low quality.
A low cost PSU is not at all inexpensive if it fails and kills expensive hardware in your system.
Btw, the cx600 is not a top tier unit at all. It is a very old crap unit.
If you are reffering to the cx650, a much better psu, it performs well and reliably for the $, hence the reccomendation.
Do not be rude to the people giving you free advice, especially don't tell them they know nothing while providing factually incorrect information on the topic in the same sentence.So u sayin the cx500 is a bad unit.

The VS450 is notorious for partially or completely failing.Certainly an old vs 450 orange is not enough for a gtx670.
cx500 and cx550 are not the same thing, and, being Corsair models, are certainly not the same as the CoolerMaster you mentioned earlier.So u sayin the cx500 is a bad unit.

Alright stupid corsair make a 50watt more psu than their 5 year psu after 5 years idiots make it like it wasmade 2 day after the 500. I didnt know the reales diffrence. However i thi k i shud go for the cx500 as nvidia recommends 500w for gtx 670. Plus its 80+ i am on extreme budget like literally i cannot buy a psu out the box for £60 thats why i need second hand. Is this a good choice. I certantly cannot waste another £10 on a 50w more psu when nvidia recommends 500wDo not be rude to the people giving you free advice, especially don't tell them they know nothing while providing factually incorrect information on the topic in the same sentence.
The Corsair CX500 is not the same as CX550. I hate to burst your very apparent ego.
The CX500/m came out in 2012. The Corsair CX550 came out in 2017 and is a completely different PSU internally. Personally I think Corsair should have done some extra name changing, to avoid confusion.
The newer CX550 is LLC resonant with dc-dc with independently regulated rails. It is also 80+ silver but marketed as bronze for segmentation reasons. 5 year warranty. The CX550 has a 40c temp rating aswell, which is ok for a budget unit.
The CX500 and CX500m are kind of garbage. Group regulated, double forward, no DC-DC, mediocre 30c temp rating, and lacks intel c6/c7 sleep state support. 3 year warranty. They are at least 80+ bronze, but still less efficient than the new CX.
And this is all just in the design of the PSU. I'm not even going to touch on the difference in quality components between the new and old.
As bad as the CX500 is, the VS450 orange is worse yet and the Cooler master linked is about the same, hence why I told you
The VS450 is notorious for partially or completely failing.
Here is a VS450 failing while powering a gtx660ti, an easier card to power than a GTX670.
Some info is pulled from my head, especially about the newer CX. Much came from this table.
I am far from an expert, but most people would say the same as I do on this topic.
Lol i got the message i expected. Whenever i check someones asking if this psu is good for this gpu. They alaways recommend them some next level psu 10x more powerfull and uneccesary for their gpu plus out their budget. If nvidia recommends 500w i think its good enough. I am not planning on any overcloking i just wana play some games.Its better than your VS, for sure. Would i recommend it? NO.
Can you find a one of these used? Its only 50 pounds new.
So is this good or no ebay item number 323777004175There is a reason for them recommending other PSUs than what you are proposing buying. You should start to realize, cheap used PSUs are not something most would recommend for a card like a 670.
A CX500 wouldn't bee good enough new for longevity, let alone a used one that may have been hammered for years.
I have already explained. The old VS and CX are garbage. Even that S12ii is old, but reliable.
An s12/m12 is not overkill for anything these days and Its not very expensive either.
Sure nvidia may reccomend 500w, but can a cx500 reliably deliver the power needed to support that card? Maybe. Too many unknowns with used.
I would trust a new VS gery 550w more than a used green CX or orange VS. And i wouldn't ideally want to use a new VS, but it wouldn't be a fire hazzard at least.
