So if a platinum 400W PSU is £100, and a gold 400W PSU is £60, then you run them both at full power continuously... It will take 7 years for the platinum power supply to make up the difference in price.

(89% efficiency at 100% load for gold, 90% for platinum so about 5W difference at 100% load, 15p/kwh)

Now extra warranty length? That may be worthwhile.

That’s recomended by nvidia , the 1080ti would never draw more than about 350-400w and much less most the time .
still voted cold tho as you could get a decent 650w Seasonic psu for less than this and psu noise has never bothered me at all (never even noticed it over system fans
if you're building anything that would require modular PSU I would be surprised to see a build need as little as 400, I think im pushing my luck running 600 D:

You don't need to spend anything approaching this for a decent PSU. I know it's fanless but unless the rest of your system is too it isn't going to help much with noise. Plus many modern PSUs keep the fan off below a certain loading so you could be better going for a higher wattage unit that doesn't have to work so hard....


But high power PSU's are far less efficient when run at low loads.
Personally 396w on the 12v+ rail is plenty for somebody wanting a low noise system. It's enough for a i7 with 1080ti system.
You are paying a premium price for a premium product. If you are paying over £1k for your system I don't see spending 10% on a PSU as a massive ask. You would spend that on a £400 system?

Just Joking... Many Windows 10, 8 or 7 users add a 4TB hard drive to expand storage. However, they cannot partition 4TB hard drive more than 2TB. On the internet there are many ways to overcome this one being to convert the new 4TB drive from MBR to GPT.

MBR is the abbreviation of Master Boot Record, which use the standard BIOS, supports up to 2TB capacity. And the GPT (GUID Partition Table) disk which uses UEFI (unified extensible firmware interface), supports disk with more than 2TB capacity. If you are thinking of partitioning a 4TB, you also need to check if the mother board is UEFI compatible.

Good luck.

I just retired my Coolermaster psu last year after 9 years of trouble free service and at the time it was powering a high end quad core 9550. Only had to change due to a GPU upgrade but they are decent budget power supplies in my opinion. Only cost £30 back in 2008.
Got a modular Corsair with a 10 year warranty now which is silent but would recommend Coolermaster powers supplies if funds are limited.
Edited by: "Bad.Actor" 8th Feb
Have the 850w version, lucky people who got one, great psu and probably the best you'll get for 60.
Damn, too late and OOS
Been using this for a few months now, had a Corsair PSU which died on me, it's been fantastic so far - easy to install, quiet and cheap.

Highly recommended.

I once purchased a hard drive from them and it started clicking after several months. They tested it and replaced it immediately. They are fair and always provide competitive products and services. I understand that you cannot return items via Amazon after 30 days from initial purchase date. CCL will always honour their 2 year guarantee.


Speaking about Amazon - 30 days is to return an unwanted item.
If it's faulty - you are covered by manufacturer's warranty AND it's down to the seller (Amazon) to sort things out.
And if it is, they are happy to send you a replacement straight away and usually give you a month to return a faulty one back to them. It just cannot be easier that that.
But it's up to you to decide which way to go after all

That doesn't sound correct, even after reading the comment. The HDD would be sold by Amazon directly, it must honour it's 2-year warranty. There is no mention of OEM on Amazon's page and its difficult to judge based off comments where people bought the same product but fulfilled by other Amazon Marketplace sellers.

Yes you can return things after 30 days back to Amazon if they are faulty. It’s just the online automated 30 day return process is removed from your dashboard after 30 days. Just contact Amazon via their contact form, chat, email or phone after the initial easy automated 30 days.

The Xbox is also limited to a jaguar AMD CPU. This is really old technology and the new Ryzen chips will have this for breakfast. I guess the one advantage of Xbox is if you have an old game library or if games are only released on Xbox initially. Price of the Xbox is another.I agree the price of 1070 cards is crazy right now. Even so this card at £297 could of been sold for a lot more on ebay. You need to put prices into context of the current market. There is no guarantee that prices will fall any time soon. There is no stock. Try buying any RX580 retail. Most places have no stock. Hence why the 1060/1070 cards are also going at a big premiums. The premium on this card was around £80 compared to 6-7 months back. Other cards are selling with premiums of £140-180+.The 1060 card would out perform an Xbox too.Sure if money is your concern then an X Box One may be the way to go. Most people only ever buy 5-6 games for them. A PC there are thousands of title to buy. I use a site call GOG. Great Old Games. There are some classics on there which on sales are 1-3 quid .Other advantage of a PC is you can swap in parts every few years. My current PC will last me 10 or so years. The Xbox will be replaced in next 2-4 years. At which point you will be shelling out 300-400 quid for a new machine. With no guarantee your games will work on the new model.


I dissagree in some ways . most games nowadays alow you to play at 1080 60 fps on xb1 or 30 fps at 4k . i agree that the cpu is pretty old but then again so is the i5 2500k and and gaming performancce will only be affected by 10-20% by that if at all + yes a new high end i5 or ryzen cpu with a 1070 will be better but will also cost nearly 3x as much , also a pc will be upgradable but for the cost you could probably buy the xb1 now and have enough left to upgrade to a ps5 (as thats likely coming soon) and still have some money left for games .......i am not an xbox fan and dont own one but do own a gaming pc but prices recentlybare stupid

Data does not exist until it exists in three places!!

RAID is not a backup, just a level of fault tolerance...
You can nitpick about every type of backup then.
USB backups are usually scheduled and not in realtime.
Cloud sync drives have issues with retaining data and again are susceptible to human error.
Cloud/FTP backup servicess again are scheduled and can take an age to upload or download. Not great for a speedy recovery.

Then within each of those you have file backups, image backups, sync tools etc. Each one has its faults.

RAID has its uses as a backup against hardware failure. A hard drive fails, oh look I have another drive with the exact same information. Didn't have to wait or anything.

So it is a backup and a useful one to use. It just should not be used as the only backup.
RAID isn't a backup, never was, never will be.

You delete a file from your RAID array, what happens to the mirrored version? It's also deleted. How do you get your file back?

You get a virus which deletes all the files on your RAID array, what happens on the mirror? They are deleted. How do you get your files back?

You get ransomware which

You get a file system corruption on your RAID array. You can't access any files. What happens on the mirror? The file system is also corrupted. How do you get the drive back?

The answer to those questions is that you get them from backup - which RAID isn't.

I told myself I wouldn't get involved in this!

Mirrored RAID is a backup, but unless you're modifying multiple TB of data a day you're far better and safer keeping the 2nd drive out of the PC/NAS and using it as a USB backup to run nightly or weekly based on how much your content changes.

1440 and G-Sync with an NVidia graphics card would be ideal, however not sure that would come in the budget.

1440 definitely is essential though from what I’ve read. Gaming in 4K is not always preferred, nice for general use though
Thanks OP, been watching this on Amazon for a while now, this has finally made me bite.
I did look at the 32" but it doesn't have a VESA mount and thought it will probably be too big.
In theory this should be sharper as it's the same resolution.

They're probably not equally durable, but I do believe they're sufficiently durable that the vast majority will replace them due to obsolescence rather than failure.As for the Antec 350W This was back in the days before anyone had heard of seasonic, corsair, EVGA or anyone else who is popular today.

I think you are greatly misrepresenting PSUs with a lack of proper knowledge, basing it off your limited experience of your own PSUs and a refusal to consider the benefits of higher quality units.

This isn't about 'ultra-reliable' systems.

I'll tell you what, you can recommend, to your friends, that they cheap out on the PSU. Built 20+ PCs for people. See how things work out in the medium to long run.

I can tell you from a sample of around 20-30 PCs constructed, 100+ PCs serviced, and countless discussions on top of those without first hand experience... The PSU is the worst part of the PC to save 20-30 bucks on.

I also can't believe you would suggest a budget PSU for someone who is looking to Overclock a system. That's actually even a worse situation to be in.

When you are pushing the limits of your hardware, unstable rails are the *worst* thing you can subject your motherboard/CPU/GPU to.

Nobody's even attempted to provide it yet. It's a nice idea, but it's never worked out in practice for me.My first PSU purchase was an Antec 350W that died near the end of the first system's life. The next system had a Tagan 480W that is still going but lacks PCI-E connectors. So I needed a new PSU for the system after that, which was an 82% efficient Enermax 525W. That one survived an (indirect) lighting strike but was no good for my current PC because it was too large for my new case.In over fifteen years I've never been able to reuse a PSU. That sort of gamble may be worth a fiver, but I wouldn't call the odds particularly favourable.

Peak efficiency varies depending on the design and can be anywhere between …Peak efficiency varies depending on the design and can be anywhere between 50% and 80%. Most PSUs on the market have very similar efficiency at 50% and 60%, which would mean a 650W PSU was just as efficient as an 800W one in that example.Given there's often a big drop off in efficiency at lower power draws a 650W PSU would often be more efficient overall than an 800W PSU. Certainly in percentage terms, actual kwh would depend on the relative models and use of the computer.But as mentioned above, 400W is a huge power draw, most systems are well below that.



Not really at all.

400W power draw is quite common actually, and to suggest a 650W PSU would 'often be more efficient' than an 800W PSU is generically wrong.

Have a look at Jonny's site, he does a TON of testing and you can see that almost every single 'model equivalent' PSU has the higher W models performing better.

Maybe this XFX is an ok PSU, but the generic advice of 'just get the cheaper PSU' is so far from good advice I would say it borders on dangerous.

The XFX from above is a 3 year Warranty. The EVGA SuperNOVA from this post is 7 years.

That by itself should be enough to convince a potential shopper.

Also, modular PSUs are *absolutely awesome* for disassembly and adjustment as you can leave all your tiddied cables in place while you remove the PSU.
