Cold from me . Why?

It's been rated at 650W. If it was made by reputable manufacturer, it wouldn't get more than 500W.
2 x [email protected] ? My old XClio 480W has 2x18A.
You will get good ,branded 500W for £50-55...easily. ...or even great 600W @ £55 (4x18A)


The video review it's a promotional trash.

More spec : http://www.northq.com/products/powersupply/nq4775-650b-flex.html


NorthQ it's NOT well-recognised or respected manufacturer of PSUs and it's for a reason .The PSUs look good but are not quality items. Do not buy it unless it costs less than £20-25 and for low spec PC

Great modular PSUs can cost quite a bit more than this, the one you linked isn't modular and to be fair this company has got some decent reviews from some places. However, I would agree with you that these are not made by the typically recognised PSU manufacturers.

£64 delivered - modular PSU from Coolermaster with genuine 520W.It has 3 x 19A @12V (by Acbel) ...so more than the '650W' :D

The company may have some good reviews but spec of the 650W is pretty poor = overpriced

7777777 is right, I would personally get a non-modular big brand PSU for this price, or spend a little more for a base spec modular: http://www.scan.co.uk/product.aspx?ProductId=28312

That also has 2x 12V 20A rails... but is rated at a far more sensible 400W.

The rated combined 12V output of that power supply is actually 34A, the splitting into three rails makes it look bigger. 32 for that Enermax.

Anyway, I'm not discounting the fact that this power supply could be dodgy. You (generally) get what you pay for.

I have a modular PSU, but quite frankly I'd prefer not. The problem is that I ended up with a bag of spare cables I have to store. It's simpler just to have a bunch of wires in the puter.
#7
mamboboy, maybe you do not really need such a powerful PSU? What spec have you got?

If you do need however, personally, I would cancel the order and buy the Antec.

If you are not in a hurry - this great, cheap PSU is regularly discounted and can be yours for something like £35-40.

Are you for real? If storage is such an issue store them inside the case. You could even place them directly in front of the fans in order to totally miss the point.

So you haven't got much time :) . Any branded 400W+ will handle your current rig easily - have a look here http://www.antec.outervision.com/ .The Antec you have found would be more than enough for even massive upgrades, including most SLIs.

NorthQ is Scan's own brand, meaning its some cheap stuff.. avoid.

Hey Mamboboy,

Sorry mate I really am but I'm voting this cold due to the make being a little questionable and the price not being that startling. :whistling:

A tool I've found quite useful for totting up how much juice a rig is going to use is coolermasters PSU calculator http://www.coolermaster.com/support/psu_calculator.php Seems identical to the antec one that Mr 77777777 has suggested. It certainly seems to be tilted towards needing more juice than completely nessiary but I'd always prefer more headroom.

Another thing, I've never been too keen on modular PSU's. I have always prefered the better quality cables from PSU to component. I realise they aren't likely to be moved around too much once they are in you're case but if you like to play with your bits like I do... :) Obviously I can see the appeal; it has its advantages because you don't have a bunch of cables hanging about looking untidy. I still prefer the non-modular ones all things considered.

No worries. The NorthQ 850w got excellent reviews all-round, and a lot of their other products do. The Overclocker's review wasn't bad at all really - all they really had concern about was the noise levels. But as I said, the Guru one was very thorough, and the fact TWO units failed is very worrying. I'm half tempted to keep the order because I've already cancelled one this week with Scan...but I think it is probably best idea, and then get the 650w Earthwatt's one? But then I've read on a forum that the total power available on that is 504W...only around 50W more than the NorthQ.


I'm assuming you have also read the JG review on the Earthwatts 650W? (http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=110). It's a properly rated 650W unit capable of 540W on the 12v rails (perfectly reasonable). I'd certainly be confident with one.
