Another cracking bargain I've just spotted in my edeals spam, ebuyer seem to be getting better recently. This has been £29.99 for a while, but at £24.99 is an absolute steal,

Is made by CWT. 400W is not to be sniffed at either, plenty of juice for the average system, even with a half decent GPU. Put one in my Granddads machine several months ago and its been faultless. Quiet, stable, happily recommend it.

£29.78 with cheapest delivery option (super saver) or free on orders over £49.99 as usual.

Peace!

Does anyone know where these are returned to for an RMA?
OCZ RAM needs to be returned to Holland at your own cost so if it’s the same with this it would be pretty expensive to send back.
Good price though. :thumbsup:
#2
absolute bargain at that price :)
#3
Excellent Little PSU - I have the 500W version which replaced a (supposedly) 750W Generic PSU and it solved all my instability porblems...

Wonder do these guys still charge £20 delivery to Northern Ireland? Nice deal BTW

did you have the exact same one the 400w version or a different on ?

400W isn't enough for all but the most low-end systems these days - my GFX cards consumes 380W just on its own, and that's not even a fancy model.
#8
400W? Yeah, for bagel based power.

i7 920, 130W
5850, 150W
Else, 75W

That's 350W average, regardless of any overclocks.

A PSU is like a car - if it's top speed is 50mph, you don't want to run it around at 45mph all the time.

I use 500W for an AMD 3000+ and GTX280, a 600W for a X2-5050e and 2x 4850, and a 800W for an i7 with 2x 5850s, as a reference, and I'm considered borderline in terms of power for my equipment.

Most standard processors (i.e. non low-power) are at least 65-130W. Stick in a last generation GPU (4850, GTX 260) to add another 150-200W, and you're still looking kinda ropey at 400W.

I don't doubt OCZ quality, just that 400W isn't good if you're building a modern system.

ive got the same psu in my latest build

phenom 925 x4

asus mobo

i aint had any problems at all in the 2 months this has run, it is near silent, doesnt get hot. Maybe im pushing the psu to the max by the sounds but hardly do any gaming mainly a media centre pc for hd and torrents.

Ifnyou look at the steam stats for end user spec - I think you'll find your doing pretty well there.

*Most* "normal" small desktop PCs this will be more than adequate for. IF your enough of an enthusiast to be using the 920 you'll know that this isn't good enough ...

Ideal for my media centre setup. Just need to find something for £25 now to get free delevery.

I appreciate you are attempting to make a joke but it seems as if your joke rail is a bit low at 12V.

Anyway, a Core i7-980X Extreme (3.33GHz six core) system consumes 233W AC when running Cinebench according to Techreport.
That equates to roughly 200W DC which is what power supplies are rated for so that means a decent 400W P/S has plenty of head-room to run the fastest desktop CPU available,
#15
For anyone considering buying a new PSU for their PC please do a bit of research first, as the quoted overall power rating means very little as many manufacturers use dubious maths to reach their overall power output.

Just as with many other electrical products stick to the well known big name brands, use an online PSU calculator to estimate roughly what your PC will need, the research the individual components to find out what power you need from the individual rails. Just because a PSU says it does 400W does not mean it will have enough on the 12v rail to power your CPU.

If your PSU is not powerful enough to power your PC under load it can result in damage to your system, and cause other components to fail.
#16
cracking deal for a quality PSU, as long as its a mid range system 400w should be good

If memory serves...
A PCIe slot delivers 75W
A 6-pin PCIe plug delivers 75W
An 8-Pin PCIe plug delivers 150W

75 + (150x2) = 375.. So theres no way a single current gen graphics card can consume 380W of power.

If you have a highend SLi or xFire rig or enjoy overclocking, granted you'll be wanting more headroom. Same could be argued on a tasty i7 system if your whacking a highend GPU and some other goodies in there. Lets face it, if your spending that kind of money, you'll not be looking at a £25 PSU anyway.

Echo what others are saying on buying quality as someone who learned his lesson on cheap PSUs the hardway. Dont cheap out and don't buy into all the BS about needing zillions of watts to power anything either.

WRONG - most good quality psu s are designed to be run at 80-90% rated power. And unless you have an 80+ bronze, your zillion watt psu will run at very poor efficiency when your system is idling or doing everyday tasks.

Comparing an electronic device with an internal combustion engine is just ignorance.

The 80 PLUS performance specification requires power supplies in computers to be 80% or greater energy efficient at 20%, 50% and 100% of rated load.
Whether a P/S is bronze, silver or gold rated is not the point when looking at idle power efficiency. You need to look at the actual power efficiency for the rated output of your system for that. If you have a system that idles at 50W a standard 300W 80Plus P/S may be more efficient at idle than a 800W Gold certified unit.
#20
What people seem to be missing here is that this is a highly rated OCZ PSU, not some generic PSU you would usually get at this price. I think you will find that this will easily power a mid range system, with a fast power hungry quadcore cpu and a midrange graphics card, not just a low end one as some people have been suggesting. It has over 30amps on its dual 12v rails which is perfectly fine for most people, unless you are running extremely inefficient components.

As an example this will power a high end 3ghz dual core system equipped with a radeon hd 5770 with plenty of headroom left over.

See Hardware Secrets for an extremely indepth review
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/794/1

'OCZ StealthXStream 400 W proved to be one of the best entry-level power supplies we’ve ever tested. It could not only deliver its labeled power at 47º C, but also presented high efficiency, up to 85%. Usually when entry-level products are delivering their labeled wattage efficiency drops below 80%, but this simply didn’t happen with the reviewed power supply.'

I have one of these in my media rig which is based around an i7 920 and an old Radeon 4850, and this has been running at 100% full cpu load 24hrs a day for the last 15 months without a hitch..albeit with the 4850 idling for most of that time (unless playing games) but even at idle its quite a hungry card..

How is your GFX card consuming 380W on it's own ...

A high-end Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 consumes 204 Watts at full load when gaming.

The ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 (2x1024 MB) card pulls 268 Watts at full load when gaming

Rubbish.

My overclocked E6750 with a pair of graphics cards only pulls 290W under full load - that's tested with a plug power meter.

I'm actually temped to get one of these to replace the cheapo 600W that came with my case.

Unless they running a special on a specific item, they've always charged for super saver if the total order value is under £49.99..

Just used a calculator and even with a slim low power HD5570 still got a minimum requirement of 448w so my 80% efficient 600w wont have much head room to spare. I wouldn't consider my computer to be too special! I'd definitely recommend you don't need more than 400w or you could end up with gfx cards underclocking them selves and not getting the performance you paid for!
#31
I ordered one of these based on the hardwaresecrets review who rate this 400 watter higher than the OCZ 500 Watt PSU and also the Enermax Tomahawk 500 Watt PSU. I think that under 30 quid delivered it's a good deal, voted HOT!

You really don't understand PSU ratings....

400W is a conservative rating for the amount of power supplied at 80%+ efficiency. The true amount of AC consumed is that plus the conversion losses, ie around 500W.

Check the reviews. It got to over 450W of load just fine using 567W at the plug.
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/794/8

Just because a 600W Q-Tec or other such cheap rubbish won't do the rated figures as they are badly designed doesn't mean this won't...

Wow.....glad I ordered mine yesterday (Monday) at this price.

I also went for the CoolerMaster Elite 334 case to go with it: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/160805

So just tipped the scales at £50...and was entitled to the Super Saver free delivery....which said within 5 working days.
The order will be delivered on Mon 29th March 2010.


The order arrived today at my place of work at 11:22am......less than 24 hours after I had ordered it.

Fantastic service by Ebuyer

Thanks to the OP too.
