A very good power supply for £29.32 (excluding delivery) under the Today Only section, was £70.44. For those of you who have free delivery with Scan, it is even a better deal. Else, delivery is just another £5.95, still not bad at all!

On the face, it would seem a good deal but no idea what connections or how many, it has

Probably they didn't fill up the specs sheet properly. If was a £70.44, couldn't be how bad I guess.

£77.43 delivered bro, must've put it back up unless misprice earlier??!!!??!!??

Hold up,this is strange 1!!!put the savers 1 in the basket showing @ £29.32, then added the EXACT same PSU from their page and it shows as £70.44?????

How to confuse a cust huh :?

]http//ww…713

make sure you go to the today only page as they don't change the price on the main pages.

I've got this psu (on my pc at home so can't check at the moment) and from memory it has 4 x sata, 4 x molex, 2 x 4pin gpu, 1 x 6 pin motherboard and the main atx mb connector. Hopefully someone can come along and confirm this.

Like every single other offer from Today Only - you need to buy it from the Today Only page.

FSP are a good manufacturer, they make for lots of OEMs and I've had three of their PSU's which have lasted years where others have failed. Vote hot.

Very good PSU - running it atm

How to make a man sound daft,cheers for that:roll:

Got it myself.
Bought it when it was on Today Only for just over £27 a couple of months back.
Loads of connectors.
Not totally silent, but it's lowered the temp of my CPU by 10 degrees

The first one I got looked 2nd hand, marks, couple of dents.
It was sent out in bubblewrap (not enough on corners) inside a City Link bag.
Complained to Scan who got it picked up by City Link, and replaced at no extra cost to me.

nothing special. I bought similar a year ago for 30 pounds in my local store.

Page 6, 7 and 8. FSP are a good manufacturer, a lot of other so-called manufacturers of power supplies are actually just selling re-branded FSP units.

The plugs it carries are: 24+8 pin, 24+4 pin, 20+4 pin. It should be compatible with pretty much everything as far as I am aware.

would it use 700 w if for example my system using 400 w currently.?

Nope, that is not how power supplies work. It works off efficiency (85%-ish in this model), so if it requires 400W it would draw say 460-480W from the mains.

Even so, that is only under load conditions. In idle mode, or browsing the net, most use 100W or even less (about 115W from the mains).

I think it's a PSU made by Fortran, Medion use their PSUs too

how come when i posted this the last time (although it was a fiver dearer) here:
hotukdeals.com/ite…ve/
it was voted colder than mugabe's heart, yet now its scorching hot?

It really does depend on the first few people who see it. Once an item starts gaining heat people don't vote cold randomly, whereas as soon as an item starts getting cold, people just vote cold without even looking at the item.

Its a good deal if you need a PSU, even if it is just a back-up PSU. At this price or any of the previous prices.

I honestly feel for you on that one, this is a good PSU, and at a excellent price, both this and the price yours was at too.

Someone replied making it very clear why it was being voted cold

"i would say people are voting cold as it would be only pc teccies or pc builders who would be interested in this."

Which is a ridiculous reason in my humble opinion. (also I just added a little bit of heat to yours taking it up to -65%)

i got one of these there excellent value.

Presumably because it's not a phone or a tv :whistling:

what u want is a CORSAIR or SEASONIC psu

and dont get a high power one, unless u REALLY need it, most pcs dont need more than 200w ( fact )

its a PC , not a toaster , even with high end graphic cards, 350w is almost never exceeded

the higher the psu , the more wastage there is, in power to actual power the psu......

there's no way this was ever a £70 PSU. FSP have a reputation for making PSU's that go POP

This what you have said misleading, if you have a higher end system, with a graphics card such as 8800GT, ATI 4850 etc you do need a higher wattage PSU.

Depending on the make around 600w is the usual safe bet (corsairs much lower than this).

The reason why is the available amperage on the PSU is shared over different rails.

What you need is a PSU with enough amperage on the 12v rail to power your system.

This is the critical rail that powers your CPU, GPU, Hard Drive and DVD Drive.

That is why cheap PSU's are misleading they claim 600w, but really they have pee all available amperage on the 12v rail.

Corsairs have huge 12v rails which makes them superb PSU's.

Zalman, Xclio, PC Power and Cooling, Sparkle, Silverstone, OCZ and Antec to name but a few all re-brand FSP power supplies. Surely they wouldn't use them if they have such a big reputation for going pop.

Anyone know what this puts out on the 12v rail?

http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/other/psu-roundup/2p5s.jpg

Thanks, another question. Would this supply enough juice to GPU demanding 30amps on the 12v rail. Or alternatively 2 GPUs in crossfire?

I am not sure if it would handle two, but it will handle one. It has an overall amp of 60a (4x15a on the 12V rails) - bare in mind that has to power the the CPU/Mobo also, so banging in two cards than can draw upto 30a each will probably cause this PSU problems. You should be getting a Crossfire/SLi certified PSU for that sort of combo anyway.

Unfair comment, FSP make reliable units, obviously there will be isolated cases wher PSU's will go pop, but that'll count as v.small proportion to that of the total sold, I've been running FSP units, not only for computers, I've seen the internals, thier heatsinking is good, but noise on the hand isn't and efficeincy is always good.

Yeah, even though my PC generates more than 283w of heat using just the GPU and CPU, it must actually use less than 200w.

Moron.

An FSP unit? Doubt it...

You really have no clue

You can't generate 283W of heat from 200W. Simple fact of logic.

Additionally a processor and graphics card together can draw easily more that 200 Watts and that is not taking into account the efficiency of the power supply and additional components, ie hard drives, DVD players, the motherboard it self etc.

Go back to your 486 processor and stop giving false info.

Im not sure, think he was being sarcastic tbh.

woohoo. power supply fun. fortron-source even.

ok, people who don't know what they're looking at already, I dare say this isn't the place to ask questions for reliable answers. go straight to the professionals for that:

jonnyguru.com/

ask on the forum, jonny himself usually answers, and he's the only guy i'd trust to know the real answers. only comments so far is this: jonnyguru.com/for…566

that said, on to the unreliable stuff...

1. last I read, PSU's generally work most efficiantly at ~50% load. i may be wrong. but if so, if you don't need more than 200w, get a 400w. if you don't know what load you're creating, see above.

2. rails. rails rails rails. i died a death over that question. the answer is: a) it changes with tech, and b) it depends what you're running. just read up on what you're using, and figure out yourself what it needs.

3. if you have to ask, yes it's probably fine for you.

heres a review about this psu

xbitlabs.com/art…tml

does mention its a very loud psu which infact is true i guess

It's no louder than my old Hiper 580w Type-M...

Available again.....

Banned

Site seems to have a few problems - but I rang up sales before and they said it should be sorted later.

I bought this unit and it has now died on me - 3 months short of 2 years old - with only average use. I wont be buying this one again.
