I thought they all have the same voltage levels, is this one to a different specification?

You mean low wattage.

I bought this a couple of days ago. It appears to be the same PSU only without the bronze certification. I expect it is the same exact parts inside.

Who is making EVGA power supplies? Corsair Silverstone?

Cheap components that go pop and kill all other components. While when my xfx one went it didn't take anything with it
#12
Good PSU for the price.

With that said, don't bother with this if your rig only draws 300W or less at full tilt. For another tenner, you can get Seasonic's 360W G from Scan. 5-year warranty, outstanding build quality and efficiency.

HEC according to this:

Corsair don't make PSUs, they just label them. Same with Silverstone.

Hi all, I know nothing about psu's- can someone explain why I should get this over sometihng like one of these.. Thanks in advance

Not strctly true. PSUs are more efficient at about 50% of their limit.
So a 500W PSU will be more efficient and less stressed.

I'm not saying Seasonic ares excellent devices, it's not really a good idea to operate a PSU within less than 20% of its capacity.
#16
If you are building a pc for anything more than browsing I wouldn't touch cit, they are cheap for a reason, not true wattage, I may be wrong but have heard nothing but horror stories of them failing and doing more damage to other componenets too. Never trust the voltages on cit again heard they fluctuate which is not good for any pc Never skimp on a good psu.

Sure, but if CPU+GPU at full load draws 300W, it's likely that typical consumption will be a good deal less. And between 150W and 300W the Seasonic delivers 89% efficiency, which is probably about as good as it gets for a sub-£50 PSU...

while i'd pay a lil extra for a modular or part modular this seems darn good value - 500w with good efficiency is plenty enough for any normal build with a single graphics card. in my experience and from what i've read anything over 600w is if you want some massively overclocked dual-graphics beast with attendant extra cooling and the headroom to accommodate any power fluctuations while gaming. i use a 400w silverstone and while the fan is a lil noisy it's part-modular which makes building so much neater and easier and copes with moderately o/c'd setup and 3 hdd's no problem.

edit> not able to find it ATM but custom pc magazine/bit-tech do a yearly round up of PSU's and they always say you get what you pay for - not just in efficiency (say your pc needs 200w on average - at 80% efficiency that's 40 more watts which adds up to a lot a year, outlay on a more efficient model can save you money long-term) but also reliability - as others have said if a cheap PSU goes down in flames as they are more likely to, it'll probably take your motherboard or graphics with it. that said i'm unfamiliar with this brand and probably go for a £40-45 coolermaster.

You have to remember the 12v rail too. Some 500/600w PSU don't put out enough amps.

I thought the same as you to be honest but I think getting a good PSU for you PC, especially a gaming one is needed. I don't trust this brand and you could have a bad experience. they also won't give out as much as it says. But it is your choice :D

Some great affordable components this month. This, AMD FX6300, Intels G3258, the 270x OC, 750ti...some very decent components for not a lot of money. All we need is a good deal on RAM and we could possibly build a budget gaming rig that performs extremely well for not a lot of money.

I'm thinking of building an i5 devils canyon setup fairly soon. out of the VGA deals at the no, what would u recommend for up to £130? just saw the gigabyte 660 which seems Ok? want decent performance but not massive draw on power. thanks In advance.

+1. Quite the opposite in fact as Corsair have almost fully switched to cheaper manufacturers.

Of Corsair's current PSUs, these are the only ones still made by Seasonic:
HX650
AX760
AX860
That's a grand total of three and if/when those get replaced they'll most likely get replaced by cheaper ones too. Their new lines seem to be all CWT (so-so quality) or Flextronics for their 'i' lines with the digital readouts.

Cit its prenounced Chit

A powersupply is like the heart of a computer if it goes then it can take out everything in the system with it also the output might not be consistent enough to keep up with your system stick to good brands like seasonic, xfx, corsair, silverstone, be quiet etc you can get a decent one for around £35 if you look around.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. Its not a gaming machine, but is a workhorse, so ordered and now received this PSU.

Never replaced a psu in my life but needed to upgrade to 3 monitor graphics card and needed more power so got on of these. Cheers

Yes this is more than enough along with a single GPU and with no extreme overclocking.

great i don't overclock but i have 3 hdd and about 8 fans in my pc (along with usual speakers and display) do you think that's still enough or would i need perhaps at least 600w? also which would you recommend between this and http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/cheapest-universe-evga-500w-pc-power-supply-29-99-delivered-amazon-co-uk-1946048 ?

Just go with this one as it is bronze certified meaning it is more efficient and uses less electricity for a given wattage.

if you upgrade to a gtx 580 would that still be okay to use with this (no overclocking)?
