Im in the market as my XFX core as started making a clicking noise and was looking at these but had chosen the next one up to this but the problem is that the modular Corsair 750watt is only £69.99 at amazon and that's a lot bigger than the 630watt for £2 more and that is on today only at £67 its usually £70. The other issue is that Scan have made a mess of the today only as its more on there than the usual price, Its £64 on today only and a regular price of £55 which leaves the problem with your post the £55 is its usual price and i know this as ive been looking all weekend so its not really cheap.

@polly69 that Corsair CX750M is only made by CWT not Seasonic like your XFX.

Can't find any reviews of this be quiet BN181. I only looked the PSU review database:
realhardtechx.com/ind…htm
but it's not in there and that database is usually fairly comprehensive. Without a review I'm not voting either way.

This is an offer Scan have put up today (announced it on their FB), and the Today Only prices were put up on Friday. Weekend TO's offers aren't changed until the Tuesday. This is the cheapest price around and has free next day delivery (something that's normally around £9) so I can't personally find any logic in that cold vote. Oh well.

You had your XFX core edition long?? They have a 5 year warranty.

Ive got one of these. Cant fault it

Good quality PSU this, I've the 430w in my system and it's ticking along nicely.

I've never really had any issues with PSUs but I've read allot of GOOD stuff about be quite! so I'm sure this is a good PSU!

I've got a 680 (I think...) and it certainly lives up to its name. I only realised my computer was still on when I turned the lights off at night on a number of occasions.

In b4 buy a branded psu crowd.

what you talking about ???

be quiet! is a very well regarded brand in the computing world

With most PSUs branding means next to nothing as 80-90% of them are not OEM take this PSU its based off of the FSP Aurum . Its a great cheap modular psu i got 10 of them a year ago to use in my builds and none of them have had any problems yet i would take one of these over the corsair CX___M series any day off the week .

It's clear that some of you need to read a little before you reply..

be quiet! ARE one of the best in the business.

For those concerned with power delivery, here's a recent review of their 500W L8:
hexus.net/tec…su/

"A 500W model, for example, is plenty powerful enough to run a system equipped with an Intel Core i7-4770K chip and GeForce GTX Titan graphics"

...not to even mention the acoustics!

Great post, and this is HOT.

Nice find. For some strange reason the Today Only price is nearly £10 more expensive than the standard price.

It's there, under Pure Power CM L8. Kit Guru gave it a good write up.

Top quality PSU, get it before its gone at that price!

Dumb question but is this standard size? The picture for some reason makes it appear small.

If you move the picture towards your face it will appear actual size

This PSU seems good, but i'd much rather go for a larger one, if OC'ing the CPU and GPU, always good to have a little head room, but if no plans to Overclock this should be ok for any single GPU set up

I run a 1st gen Lynnfield i7 860, AMD 6870, optical drive, 7200rpm hard drive, 2 SSD's and various fans and USB devices off a 380w PSU, so 630 should be plenty even for most dual GPU systems.

Damn, just ordered the XFX XXX650 yesterday for £70

Even if you overclock it'll still be fine. Well, that's presuming you're using Intel.

I run a GTX 660 Ti with a TDP of 150 watts using an Enermax 380Watts (Pro 80+) so running a GTX Titan at TDP of 250 watts is OK with 500 Watts (Pro 80+) power supply.

I've got Two of these, you can't hear either of them in operation, marvellous PSU's.

This may be a good price for this particular model but it's not a good deal.

I know what you mean, I believe ithe relative big diameter fan that makes it look small. All you have to do is to draw 4 squares of exactly the same size. Then draw in each square 4 different sized circles using a compass. Then sit back and marvel at the visual deception. Then use the same experience acquired using geometry and apply in daily life !

Nice price for a modular 530W. We have 3x BeQuiets and all running cool and quiet. Voted Hot

Funniest comment I've read in ages

Just a quick question which one would you go for in regards quietness when it comes to Be quiet! Pure Power L8 530W VS Seasonic G Series 550W as im looking to build my first pc ?

Will this PSU have enough power to handle a 4670k OC @ ~4.3Ghz and an Nvidia GTX 760 OC ~15%?

Hell yeah, easily! thats exactly what I'm planning for my build and all the research shows it could infact run SLI 760s. This PSU is, like most BEQUIET! units actually exceed their stated statistics by far, although this is advetised at 530w it can actually peak upto 650w which is plenty. I had the 580w version and that used to peak at 700w.

I suggest people check reviews of reputable communities that have actually used them and tested them!

for anyone that wants a bit more power, £10 more!

Yes it is.

Shame about that though a small, quality, modular psu is exactly what I'm after. My new build is going in a small custom case. A small psu around the 500 watt mark would be great. In fact I may have to leave out a gpu and instead rely on a igpu. If that's the case then probably lower that 500 to 300ish I think.
I know this is off topic and all but would anyone know of one?

I'll probably give this a go but using paint. And yes the fan is huge in comparison to the body.

In real life application, though this example is geometrical, to offer you one application of this concept, the square box is likened to be , say , charisma, and the circle is a core of issues, by having relatively big charisma the core issues become relatively tiny. The truth is that the underlying issues are still the same and the actual impact is the same. When politicians have large charisma they get popular although the underlying issues remain the same and continue to remain unpopular with people. Charisma costs cheap compared to costs to fix an issue with actions.
Another good example is a loan from a bank, the total repayment is large but by making it a daily payment it is a small amount..hence you see how interest payment is just £2 a daily whereas a total 10 year interest payment is £7000.

Some of the PSUs that i have used have lasted over 10 years , buying quality makes sense.
