It's a good price but EVGA BQ series aren't the best.

For those who don't know, only a handful of companies actually make PSU's, they then sell/ license them to other companies who reskin and sell them (monitor manufacturers do the same but that's for another day). That's what EVGA do and with this PSU they have taken a HEC (Compucase) PSU and slapped an EVGA label on it an wa la. The problem is HEC PSU's are only ok, they're a middling company that make average PSUs.

EVGA have a supernova G2 line, those PSU's are made by superflower and GS line made by Seasonic arguably the two best PSU manufacturers. Don't confuse all EVGA's as the same quality PSU's, like these ones which are in a lower league.

If you are making a computer that needs a 650w PSU (and most don't) then don't cheap out on it. Look for deals on quality PSU's, unfortunately this is not one. If you are thinking of getting it for a budget build, still, I'd recommend a quality 450-500w over this.

That's the GQ, not the BQ ;)

As mentioned, that's a GQ review which are also fantastic and made by FSP, a very good PSU maker. Don't get me wrong, it's a good PSU, but not a great one and if you are putting quality parts with it, I'd always try and get a quality PSU.

EVGA GS, GQ, G2 and PS are all top quality full japanese capacitors, quiet, great temps, stable at load/oc etc i.e. all the bells and whistles. The EVGA BQ is mid range and not bad but don't confuse it with the ranges I mentioned, that's all. Like I said it's not a bad PSU, but if are building a quality system or have expensive parts, getting a quality PSU can make your PC last 5-10 years. I have never had a psu die on me (excluding the cheap PSU's I bought when starting to build 15 years ago!) and I've built around 30 systems in that time. Just my 2 cents.

Oh ffs. Now I gotta send this pos back.
Why does th GQ come up when I search for the 650BQ. Bloody Google. I should have spotted it but I'm still gonna blame Google.

Lol. It's not a bad PSU and if you know what you're buying it should do the job. With PSU's you tend to get issues a few years down the line and that's why I am always cautious when buying them. My comment was just for people who browse these forums and then go, omg, EVGA PSU I have to get it when this isn't a wow deal - an example of a wow deal would have been the HyperX Cloud II gaming headset, a fantastic headset that you won't get at that price for 6 months or so I recogn (when the next hyper cloud comes out). It's also sold out now at game, lol.
I was planning to use an OC'ed i7-6700k with it, but probably low-midrange GPU at the most so I probably won't be pushing it too much.
I see they have a decent price on the Corsair CX500 but not sure if it'd be a better choice?

Use this list, anything from T1 or T2 and you will be good for 5+ years usually.

Thanks. It looks like the 550W EVGA SuperNOVA GS at £58 might be the best option then.
It's a bit more than I was planning to spend though :(

Same here. Although I think I'll have to stump up the extra as I don't want to continue running my £1k media server off of a Corsair CX430 anymore.

Use fanless. After sometime the fan fails.

Most expensive PSU I've ever bought was fanless. It's also the only PSU I've ever had that failed :(

I actually amended my order and went with this one in the end.

It's not fanless but at least it's noisy :p

Not if you have an ITX case or side window with no basement you want looking good.
