On today only under "Power Supplies" Section, roughly half way down. This seems a corking deal, they occassionally have this on offer, but comes with a free PSU tester as well. Apparently a reputable brand and at 700w great for a high end build. Im tempted to buy one even though I don't need it just for a build I'll be doing sometime next year! 83% efficiency as well!

Free delivery for Hexus and AVforums members, £6.99 if otherwise (if u havnt already just sign up and post on either 1, its worth it cos scan have some great offers but the £7 postage always takes the shine off)

Tester itself worth ~£7 here so thats £76 together at usual prices for only ~£35!! Better than half price!
#2
I notice they also have Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 (v8) UK Edition (OEM) for £10.93

This is the 3 user edition.
#3
i saw that earlier and absolutely cannot believe the price.
i bought the modular psu NorthQ 650w at £51 on easter weekend when I thought that was a good deal...i'm pretty happy with the northq and my Q9550 4gb 1333DDR3 system all under £600 for my first build. :)
#4
why cant i see it on the website...am i missing somehitng here
#5
It's on today only...

Scroll down to the power supplies bit. Its under the category that says PSU - 600w - 750w, 7th in the list. Hope this helps
#6
finally found it so apols for that...does anyone know if this is anygood for a media centre...ie if it runs quiet

Took me a while to find it as well

It is a VERY long page.

Scroll down past CPUs, memory etc till you get to PSUs.

It's not that loud - powered my 8800GTX / Quad Core / 6GB RAM / 4xHDD / 2xOptical Drive system fine.

Not a bad price with these, but has been cheaper in the past: [COLOR=#123889]EXPIRED - 700W FSP700-80GLN PSU for £27.59 @ Scan (today only) usually £68.94[/COLOR]

I'd rather have it for £27.59 without the tester.
#10
That's true and fair enough, i do know that it has been on in the past. Just seems good while you can get em for anyone whose planning a build, espesh considering several ~500-600w PSUs are in excess of £60 at the minute

I agree :thumbsup:

How quiet is this? Wondering if it's worth it or going for one of the 500W ones they have for under £20
#13
I hae the FSP bluestorm and it is very quiet so should expect this to be,

Reasonably quiet, from what I read at other forums (e.g. Hexus).

Do not buy those rubbish 500W under £20 ones, unless it's for a very basic build with a basic graphics card. You'll be much better off with the other lower-powered ones mentioned there for under £40: Silverpower, HiperPower, FSP & Silverstone. I have the Hiper 425W one - very quiet & powering a 8800GT.
#15
Good deal. If you miss this one they have it in the Today Only section about once a week!
#16
if your looking for a beefy psu for an sli or xfire rig then the northq blackmagic modular 850w is a great price for what your getting
#17
Is there any reviews on the internet for this PSU? I'm interesting in finding out about the noise levels. I need it to be nearly silent.
#18
This isn't by any means quiet, it was the noisest component in my system by far, but replacing the fan is easy and not it funs quiet, cool and performs very well.
#19
" 83% efficiency as well! "
Which is absolutely appalling for a switched mode power supply.

Never let marketing get in the way of BS ;o)
banned#20
Anybody buying a power supply really really should check out how much power their system actually needs.

700w is pretty much over double what the average system would use. 400w is plenty for pretty much anyone, unless you go SLI.

Getting a better quality, lower rated PSU for the same price will lead to saving money long term, and potential improvements to stability/efficiency and noise.

Anything 80% & above is actually considered very good to excellent - see this 80 PLUS info.

This has only 2x 6pin PCI-E connectors, so you may want to be more specific with regards to SLI & this PSU. Amperage on the +12V rails also comes into play with power-hungry GPUs.

Not true I've heard. Whether one is using a 1000W PSU or a 300W PSU, the power drain from the mains is the same - efficiency is more important here. You're right about the other stuff though.
#22
Do any of you PSU geeks hapen to know the wattage of the XPS 420 PSU with the 880Gt card is? I am thinking of upgrading the graphics to the latest ATI and am wondering if I will need to upgrade PSU.

Just open your case and take a look at the label on the PSU. Dell PSUs are usually very good.Compared to most manufactureres they underrate their psu wattage.

edit:

Just checked and its 375w or 425w. That is more than enough for the 8800gt but won't be for the latest nvidia/ATI cards. HD 4850 or GTS 250 should run fine though. They only need one pci-e connector and use around 120w each.

This psu is not nearly silent, it's quiet but under load it gets louder quickly. Also note the main cables are quite short.
#25
so you guys are willing to put the life of all your PC components on this PSU...

if there was one component that you should not skimp on, it would be the PSU.
if your PSU blows, it can potentially take all other PC components with it.
#26
scan is close to me, but i hate going there, there is an old asian women presumably the owner or one of the family, who is miserable as sin i cant stick going as she pi**es me off, and the other staff sit and talk to noobs about what hardware is the best for their custom machine. F**kin check before you get to the tills for christ sake i havnt got all day to stand round and listen you tell a noob cusotmer what a CPU is!!!. damn good bargin though, might be cheap enough for me to warrant me going down there and going through the ordeal again. ---rant over---

Read the reviews, its actually a high quality, well made PSU made by one of the best OEMs.

The reason is cheap is because it is OEM, with no retail packaging/LED lights and other guff you get with retail PSUs.

I would call buying an FSP PSU "skimping it" tbh. There one of the best manfuacturers you can get...
#29
even if thats the case i havent heard of them and would personally pay slightly more and have an antec, great psus

good price though
#30
HI all, just wondered what PSU i should get to power 8 1TB HDDs, q6600 quad core, 8gb ram, 2 x dvd drives and an ati 4870 1gb Graphics card, would 700w be a minimum?

thanks for any help :thumbsup:
#31
i'd suggest 2 PSUs, one for the fileserver and one for a gaming machine.

FSP = Sparkle = good (or they used to be, not as good as e.g. Seasonic but reliable).
#32
thanks smiff but i want it all in the same case as im tight on space...so would a 700w psu be ok or do i need more?
#33
APOLOGIES!
I have just expired this because if you click on the link on the page for more info, the price shoots up to over £60. However, I now see that if you click on the "BUY" link it takes you to a different page where the discounted price is still valid. I now have a vague recollection that Scan deals always work this way. Dammit.

MOD - PLEASE UN-EXPIRE

One thing to mention ,This is one fof the smallest 700w PSUs so if you have a small case and want to upgrade this is perfect, It also has short cables which makes keeping a small PC tidy easy but you may struggle with a big case,
#36
i have this - and have no complaints. FSP are a reputable brand. Note that it is supplied OEM - i.e. no packaging instructions etc. Though its well wrapped in bubble wrap lol.

Whether it's 700W or 300W matters not a tot to 'saving money over the long term' - your PC's components will draw power only what they need - & that'll be the same amount of current regardless of what capacity the PSU is. Almost without exception (but especially with PSUs), it's better to have an overspecced PSU than a one that's 'sailing close to the wind'.
banned#38
anyone know if this will fit in a dell inspiron 530 .have a 8800gt in mine and seems to be playing funny ******s just now .?
#39
FSP make PSU's for a few companies take a look at http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=9

This is a great PSU, fairly quiet, solidly built and enough power for any normal system. I'd had stabilty problems with my OC machine for ages and putting this in really sorted it out. The FSP branded PSU that it is based on was a very well reviewed model at around £100 2 years ago. What it is lacking is modular cables, length of cables and number / selection of ends. The issues can all be overcome with cheap adapters if you find any an issue for your system. With regards running PC5020's gaming / server crossover, no bother whatsoever. Your system draws around 400W so a good 500W PSU would be a minimum. I would happily connect up to a 550W draw to this PSU. As such you could even Crossfire and add a couple more disks at a later stage.
