Wouldn't trust stock PSU's

Buy this + buy a better power supply. Power supplies are the most overlooked item in a computer, and it all comes down to buying a cheapo one or a proper branded & trusted one. Choose the wrong one and it will result in some or all of your components in your computer to brake.

again rating this cold due to the **** psu. altho this costs double u get a much better quality case and a more stable power supply http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/6279207/Cooler-Master-Elite-330-Black-Silver-Midi-Case/Product.html

OMG are the noobs on this site again! If i was after any case for looks then i dont think you would go for this.... in most cases its down to personal taste really ...first off is the spec...this is a below average case with cheap as chips PSU compare like for like and its not hot! its an average case with an average price! at
Gedfaz no mate delivery is just under £5! And zeeshan 95 who care what it looks like when your on a budget this low! i would be more bothered about it staying in one piece and not getting my hand cuts to bits when putting my stuff in it!! AGAIN on paper spec not (oooo thats a pretty case train) this isnt a good deal

having had one of those coolermaster 330s they ain't so hot, i ain't a noob and swear by my coolermaster centurion 5 but that baby ain't in the same league the psu is ok but at £25 and no more

so delivery is £5 plus the £3.13 extra cost when i checked the site comes to a total overspend of £8.13 or approx 34% of budget for an equally cruddy case, seems like a decent save for building a junior machine to last a short time and would pay for a fair few band aids

I did say ABOUT £10! :) and I agree that you shouldnt judge a case by its looks, but teh spec for both cases are the sameish... and yours looks c*ap so why would anyone spend £8.13 for a case with roughly the same spec... thats uglier!

oh... and who are the noobs? Mr 33 posts? :whistling:

Its 460W! You can buy a preferable power supply (550w) for the difference in price and lob it in the cheaper case and have the 500W psu left over... Quality silent PSU's aint that expensive...
#12
Ok its not the best deal in the world for exmaple you can get a case and a PSU from scan.co.uk for £25.15 alot of people have free delivery from scan.co.uk on here.

To say the stock PSU is c*** how do you know this? I bet you it is of a very similar quality to all of the Dell PC's and there PSU's that get bought of this site and they fly out like hot cakes ...I would never by a Dell desktop of its cheapo components. :thinking:
#13
good buy if not fussy about psu not realy had many problems with cheap psu,s and i have had loads of pc,s was building them when it was MS DOS 5 on 20Mb hd 286 cpu ie long time before any windows. Just the cheap one,s seem to be noisey also seen some so called hight quality psu,s pack up fairley quickley I would use this one on most pc setups just buy higher quality one for gaming pc or for silent ie media center pc voted hot
#14
So why wasnt this hot when I posted it a week ago for 3£ cheaper?

As i said in first post, do not buy this thinking of using that stock psu.. They are loud and will be the cause of your whole computer braking!

If you want to risk this, then well it's your choice..:whistling:
#16
Yes, these guys aren't just saying that because the PSUs aren't from a big brand; they're usually generic and not made by a recognized manufacturer like CWT, Seasonic, etc.

These have usually a large risk because they do not provide reliable power (fluctuations) , get loud and hot and there is a major risk of it failing and taking out your components with it, so it's better not to skimp out on a decent PSU. Generic ones can do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTVEtr14FEA

Also, if you get a good PSU, they will be more efficient, and perhaps save you money back.
#17
"They are loud and will be the cause of your whole computer braking!" can you explain how you think "a whole computer braking" may occur from a faulty PSU? lol you really should not bother posting its embarrasing.

So how do you know that your so called branded PSU is not made from that same factory in China? clearly we don't. I don't agree with you "a major risk of it failing and taking out your components with it" if the PSU fails thats it the PSU fails not big disaster you just replace the PSU simple. That review means nothing it has not been independtly done so means nothing they are clearly out to advertise there own brand.

It's interesting seeing the effects of FUD and price-hike marketing strategies. Anyone who's been building PCs for any length of time will know well that "quality" PSUs are a very new thing, and that prior to their release, we all had PCs that ran with generic PSUs that didn't dramatically explode, or any such thing. The people who refuse to use anything other than a "quality" PSU, do you really believe that stable computing only began when your favourite company started rebranding products in their name, or that "quality" PSUs don't blow as well? And what do you believe the failure rate to be with generic PSUs? How likely is it, do you think, for a generic PSU to blow, and take out every other component in a system?

I'm not arguing here btw, I'm just curious to see the effects of the marketing.

nice video, yes psus from respectable manufacturers to fail however they arre provide a much more stable power output so ur psu wont go pop like in the video the deal i suggested ineed was a 460w but it will be more stable than the CIT psu which probably wont be able to output anything near 400w

here is an in depth review of the coolermaster rc330 case http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=297&Itemid=61

cooler master xmtreme 460w review tested to output 430w http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/550/10

now compare that to some reviews i found on amazon of cit psu http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B000KGYMGW/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&coliid=&showViewpoints=1&colid=&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Colors-500W-Silent-Power-Supply/dp/B000KGYFO6
alot of people recieved a DOA item.

to :dxx i had a few problems with cheap psus before my friend also had a problem with his cheap psu. maybe you are not using your psus anyway near the suggested power output. so guys do yourself a favour and buy you psu fom a respected brand.
"While generic PSUs are usually three times cheaper than branded PSUs, these test results show that a generic PSU is a total waste of money."

Looks rubbish.

Cold.
#22
If you are building a budget PC then this case will be fine. I love how people are commenting on the PSU when they do not own the case so have nothing to base their claims on. The PSU will probably be fine. I've only ever bought one "quality" PSU, and other than it being heavier than the cheap ones and having more connectors, I noticed no difference. This will be fine for most users needs.

Voting hot because all you know-it-alls are making this look bad when it isn't really.

not a biased test is it lol think that test is a bit of b/s
#26
Brake is what you do when you press the middle pedal on your car. Break is what happens when your PSU goes bang.

Putting things into perspective I have built and owned many computers and always skimped on the PSU, I have never had a PSU fail. So whilst I accept it is more likely with a cheap PSU It doesn't happen often enough to really influence a purchase. I think people worry too much, live on the edge a bit more.
#27
It will be fine if your going to run a very old and low powered machine. However, if you prefer silence or thinking about adding a graphics card in the future then stay clear.


Also, a cheap PSU will take out other components. It can explode for one thing, secondly it can overvolt and send a surge of electric through your motherboard and fry it and other components.


Also, maybe the reason quality PSU's have only came out in the last few years is due to increasing power demands?

Couldn't agree more. I am a system builder of 12 and bit years now and Ive built well over a thousand PC's. In the late 90's and early 2000's it was commonplace for system builders to use stock power supplies. I think I've had about a 1% failure rate on stock power supplies and these have tended to be the more recent power supplies. The CiT range of cases tend to have noisy power supplies and I've had 2 failures with them, but the chassis themselves for a budget case are well made and I've used loads of them. Nowadays I usually point out to the customer the benefits of upgrading the power supply and they nearly always upgrade. The best power supply I've tested for the money is the Trust PowerMaster 520W PSU Low Noise Big Fan PW-5550. It's build quality is superb, includes SATA power and Molex connectors and best of all you can barely hear it, so much so that you don't think the fan is actually running. (See the Amazon reviews)

Before everyone gets on the band wagon and tells me about "better" ones that cost more and how Trust are cr*p (their cheaper ones aren't too clever) - don't bother as I build PC's on a daily basis and my opinion is based on real life testing not one off home builds. I know there are better power supplies for the high end gaming machines but that's missing the point.

Anyway, as far as the deal is concerned it's a good deal for the general public as the delivery is included. I think it's wrong to quote the Scan price as not everyone has free delivery. Voted hot.

Don't listen to this system builder novice, the fact he uses amazon reviews as some sort of measuring stick is ridiculous. ( he probably owns that trust psu) get a pc power & cooling 420 watt for £39-99 or the corsair cx 400 for £42-99.Both near silent running and very high quality for their price.
Much better warranty they send you a brand new sealed unit if anything goes wrong without quibbles.
The above guy clearly doesn't value his customers if he uses crappy brands with crappy second rate warranty with poor efficiency.
Cheap psu = run hot loud and wear out fast.
