Good price, this normally floats around the £63-£66 mark. However, I would not use this to run a half decent spec PC, whilst it looks ok there's simply not enough 'real world' reviews out there. IMO, you'd be better off buying a good quality 650w PSU from a known reliable brand, or wait and see what happens with Play.

Agreed the OCZ would be the best way to go but I'm a bit concerned the deal may evaporate.
The specs on this power supply stack up but as you say it is an unknown quantity.

If you have a decent system it's just not worth putting it at risk from an unknown psu maker.
Spend the extra on a reliable one, your components will thank you for it :p

When a PSU dies it normally takes the Motherboard with it,So beware of this PSU.

I agree with the above comments, it's always better to go with a well known brand for your PSU. Also, unless you're building a really high spec PC, you probably wont need 800w.
#6
unknown brand, walk away ;)

Agree, having spent ages recently trying to establish the cause of crashes, I am just glad I had enough faith in my psu. Had I taken a gamble I would probably have ended up replacing it before discovering the real cause. (gtx 460 issue)

Also, look at the pic on the web site, the ratings for 12v vary 17 down to 14. Id suggest a decent single rail psu. Look at the SLI cert (even if not using SLI) on nvidia, you get a good idea of whos are under/over specc'd.
#8
Quality over wattage. For example im running a good Tagan supply for the past 4 years !
And iv got an insane amount of stuff running from it considering its only rated at 480W.
Get a decent 600W or so supply, its ample unless you plan to do ott SLI or Xfire, in which case 700W + start making sense.
#9
I live by my "buy cheap, buy twice" philosophy and that is especially true when it comes to electronics and computer parts. Your power supply lies at the heart of your PC. If you have a cheap computer with a <£300 value then this is a great price for a modular power supply, but for anyone running a good spec machine... Spend double the money for a known brand!

When it comes to PSU's you cannot rate the "quality vs quantity" high enough. Stick with Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, Thermaltake etc. You do pay MUCH more than no-names but you pay it for two very big reasons: quality and reliability.

I think people are far too **** about power supplies.
I've been cobbling together PCs for years and never gone for one of yer fancy power supplies with racing stripes & lowered suspension.

I'd happily go for this if I needed a new PSU, have some heat.

I agree i have a Jeantec Storm 700w in mine its been in there for years and runs my current amd quad core and HD5850 graphics card problem free.
#12
Has anyone ever stopped to think that the "well known brands" of today , used to be unknown until someone gave them a try ?

In my 25 years of building PC's I have only had one PSU fail on me and that was an OCZ which took the mobo with it, since then I have bought by spec only, and am currently running a lesser known brand on my I7 950 with Crossfire 5870's and have not had a problem.

Looks to be a good bit of kit for the money , heat left.
#13
I agree to some degree about the qualiy over quantity issue but......

I am currently running a 700w ebuyer value psu and have been for over three years now.It has been fine all that time,three mainboard three chip and three GFX card upgrades running 4HDD's and 2 DVD Drives as well as a cm storm case and all it's fans.So budget psu's do work.

I just thought it was time to go modular for nicer cables and a bit more ooomph.
Thanks for all the comments I may look futher into it.
This psu looks pretty good for the money.

Agree, cheapo ones always worked for me. I once bought a swank Tagan one and it was the cause of my computer occasionally refusing to boot. Generic cheap 400w one in - no problems ever since.

I agree. Have used cheap power supplies for 10 years now. Always had a top end graphics cards. No real probems.
People seem to generalise about cheap power suppies as well without any hard facts. They cant all be complete rubbish

My personal thoughts in my earlier post can be justified by the fact I have had 4 cheapo PSU's in the past, never overloaded them, and they died usually within 6-12 months and a couple of times took my mobo and RAM with it. Two were PSU's bundled with a £30-40 case, 1 was an OCZ and another was a Jeantech. The "case" ones simply died about about a year. The OCZ lasted about 2 years but when it blew, it took me mobo and RAM with it. The Jeantech lasted 2 months and took an £80 mobo with it.

Then I got a Corsair about 5-6years ago. It had to be replaced under warranty about a year or two back but that was my own fault for neglecting to clean the dust out of it regularly. Before sending it back I blew the dust out - you could have knitted a jumper with the crap that came out! And dust wasnt what killed the previous 4 either as back then I was pretty **** about cleaning the PC out regularly.

So 5 cases, 4 cheap and 1 expensive. The 4 cheapos lasted a short time and cost me a lot to fix the damage.

PS. I do run my PC's 24/7, hence why I tend to buy and recommend PSU's with good reliability track records.

don't listen to this guy cheap power supplies when they go pop can take everything out.
The 12v rail rating is always low too NOTE how they don't tell you the 12v rail rating hmmmm wonder why not.
The Corsair Builder Series CX 500W at £47-99 at ocuk would be a better buy.

To all those who are saying invest in a cheap PSU I say I have THREE times when I first started building systems some years ago, and all three failed. TWICE taking the motherboard and once taking the cpu, memory and a month old graphics card.
Although I agree you cannot tarnish all with the same brush by the same token I'm not made of money and cannot afford to keep replacing whole systems because of cheap PSU's.
Which is why I now only buy established makes. It may cost a bit more but its a damn sight cheaper than replacing an entire system.

Scan had the Antec True Power 650W (which has Seasonic internals) 80 Plus Bronze for £59.99 last week. It also has 5 year warranty. Why would anyone buy this instead?

Seasonic gets my vote

If there is one component inside a pc that you shouldn't go cheap or unbranded, its a psu!
banned#23
Joining the 'cheap and cheerful, more like expensive failure waiting to happen' crowd. I work for a failry decent PC retailer and everyone who works in the returns section says stay well clear of cheap power supplies, they are inefficiant, noisey and the wattages they quote are rediclouse to what they can just about reach. Been using a Corsair HX Power supply for the last 5 years now without a problem

Built a new rig with one of the new Novatech PowerSation power supplies and for the money I'm hugely pleased (http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/components/powersupplies/novatech/)

Rather have an unbranded PSU than an unbranded CPU though! Intail anyone..?
#25
People that haven't been burnt before will be tempted.. I have first hand experience and also 2 mates who have regretted not buying decent to start with. Ratings for psu are for their peak.. for example the infamous 600W Qtec claims 600watts.. in independant testing under that load, they failed in less than 10mins.. I went for enermax, I have 2, clean them out regular, and they are quiet and run like a dream, and that's 4 years later. Yes they cost plenty, but seriously if you are spending loads on mb ram and graphics, it really isn't worth the risk.

I wouldn't say it "normally" takes the motherboard with it, but certainly investing in a good PSU is important when building a PC. Not just for problems with failures but often cheaper PSUs do not always consistently supply the voltage stated. I've had problems before which were seemingly unrelated to the PSU (including BSODs in Windows), which after many hours of troubleshooting turned out to be thanks to a cheap PSU!

or you could buy one from a store who doesn't charge loads more than all its competitors.

I think there is a lot of bs about branded psus, spent a fortune on my last psu and it was complete crap. Next time im going to try a cheapo.
