Good price although 300W is on the low side for anyone adding a graphics card to a system.
Great for a budget setup. I’ve always been advised that the psu is one component not to scrimp on so wouldn’t risk it on my rig. Heat given anyway for the value
Back around 2010, I was rummaging through my spare PSU collection to find something to run a low power Nas, I found a 250w FSP PSU that ran lower than anything else by 5-6W. Managed to get an under clocked Pentium E2140 and a couple of hard drives idling just under 40W.

At this price these are good candidates for resurrecting older systems that are otherwise not worth it.

Expanding on what I said above, this PSU would be a fine replacement for older PCs that don't need anything more beefy but have a PSU that died. E.g. Anything dual core running integrated graphics as a simple home productivity system, .

I've actually had an FSP 250w happily running a Core Quad Q6600, GTX 460, 2 HDDs, DVDRW and 8GB of RAM for several months in the past. Not something I would advocate people doing and would agree with your general point but just pointing out these PSUs are pretty reasonable and can handle quite a lot. They're also pretty heavy which is usually a sign there are not cheap and nasty parts inside. It probably weighs 2x-3x more than some of those crappy ~500w Winpower PSUs that come in cheap cases!
Good price - the main downside is the huge lack of power connectors - other than power headers, it only has 1 molex, looks like.
Good price, nice find. Heat from me.

Clearly don't know that fsp are a primary manufacturer of power supplies for the likes of Corsair and evga on its products in the premium ranges
I have run a 2500K+gtx960 and gamed on it, and it works perfectly well , on a bequiet 350w . I would go for more next tim as even the lower AMD gfx cards require 1 x 8 pin..
On the (good qulaity) power supplys it doesnt seem to cost a lot more to go from 400w to 500w or 600w.
But if you're running an APU (200g/3400g/4400G then this is more than sufficient
This great for Ryzen 3200G build I'm planning to do for my niece. Bronze certified but It's FSP so can't be that bad.
Be surprised what you can run on a 300W PSU nowadays.
Ah, you've got to love Scan, so traditional in their mail order ways... "Delivered between 14th and 21st".... umm.... what what? Feels so 1999 compared to Amazon's "Delivered tomorrow, at 10.40am... or your driver will be shot".

Come on Scan, I love you, but you've got to sort out your deliveries!

(oh, and for that 7 day delivery guestimate, I paid the princely sum of £5.48....)

Good find. 300W will put people off but it's an FSP so it's one of the better OEM brands, fine for mid-range CPU + low-mid range graphics (e.g. 1050 Ti or 1650). I have a Corsair RM650i PSU in one of the gaming PCs and even under full load it's only drawing 240W at the wall and 220W DC.
Tbh it's a bronze rated PSU, yeah, but it's rated! Should be spot on for an APU build but just remember to check whether it's enough power for the whole system otherwise.. always include your RAM, mobo and any extra cards going on the PCI slots.. there's a few websites will give you an idea of the power needed..

My Dell i5 i8500 with SSD, HDD, DVD, GTX750 run on a 260 watt power supply and hasn't gone bang yet
a decent 300watt psu is probably far more reliable than certain 400 or 500 watt psus that are sold.

I actually have a 4790K and RX480 8GB running on a basic Corsair 400W PSU (not even Bronze rated), which is below the recommended spec. AIO Corsair cooler, some case fans, 16GB RAM and few hard drivers to boot with no issues

Yeah goes to show that some well made psus can work better than expected.

What does "API" mean in this context? I can't figure it out.

This is very true. This is a server power supply were the motherboard provides all the power. Not convenient for standard systems, you will need molex to xxx adapters.

The TDP of a 4790K is 88W, and RX480 is 150W, so there's a fair amount of leeway with 400W really. The PSU wattage requirement sometimes is considerably overstated. I know NVidia and AMD sometimes say the likes of '450W or 500W PSU' recommended, but that's almost certainly taking into account people with really cheap PSUs that can't really handle those loads.

Indeed, lot of people have over the top PSUs in their system but funnily enough I couldn't get 970 GTX to run with the same power supply despite similar TDP on the cards.

Interesting, I would have hoped a decent 400W wouldn't have problems with that.

I think the most my 3700x/1080Ti system has used 'at the wall' is around 360W, usually less than half that in general use (total TDP of 315W). NVidia say "minimum 600W" PSU, though I understand why they say it.
This is a bit of bargain for budget builds. Stick to the lower powered (65w or under) CPUs and sub 100W GPUs and you'll eb fine.

Also with the ubiquity of the amd 2200g an really cheapo systems are not a real possibility.
Shame I missed this one. Would have been perfect for my 3200G build.
