Lol. I wouldn't even trust my fans on this.

If you need 680W, you must be building a relatively high spec. machine.

First rule of building a high spec. ,machine.... don't skimp on the PSU, it will come back and bite you in the ass.

No mention of what the Ampage is on the +12V rail? (presuming it has only one rail)

No 8pin/6pin PCI-E either

I was actually looking at this when it was £50 quid... It's just so tempting to buy one of these because of the price... If you want reliability on this wattage you need to spend another £40!

... does anyone have anything good to say about this PSU or am I going to have to fork out on a Corsair?

I would go with a branded backed by a solid guarantee.
Keep an eye on Scan deal of the day: scan.co.uk/Tod…spx
or use Skinflint to hunt one down: skinflint.co.uk/?ca…hps

What components are you intending to run off it?

like all Maplin stuff, if the manufacturer of the product is not stated or obvious and there is no link to a website to look up the true spec .. then AVOID

I was in there today and they tried to sell me this. I asked if they had a modular psu (£39.99 for 500w in the catalogue) he said no but they had a good psu for sale...he showed me this.... He may aswell have showed me a remote control helicopter as it would have been just as relevant.

Nothing too fancy... i5 750 + 2 HDDs + 1CD/DVD + Radeon HD 5770 + 2x2GB of 1333mhz
But want room to add another optical drive and HDD and ram at some point.

Im thinking either the Corsair TX 650W which has so much good rep but is about as expensive as it's ever been atm.

...or the OCZ Stealth XStream 600W which would save me about £15-£20...

What would you recommend?

Probably the Corsair TX650W :thumbsup:

That was my choice until I lost my marbles and splashed out on a Seasonic X-650. I'm extremely pleased with it though.

I bought the TX 650 just before christmas it's absolutely flawless.

(currently running - 4xhdd, 2xoptical, amd phenom 9950 black edition, 4gb ddr2 800mhz and ati hd4850 1gb).

Spend the money - I paid £69.99 at Novatech.
