Very old meh power supply for a meh price.

Manufactured by Channel Well Technology.

(Channel Well Technology do make some decent PSU's, but not this model.)

Built down to a low price. Not exactly the most stable units ever created. Very basic safety circuitry or even thin gauge wiring used. Not really ideal for gaming rigs or overclocking systems.

What 600w would you recommend on a budget which is safe and good quality please?

Why do you need a 600W supply though?
Are you going to be running an LGA2011 board overclocked to the max (or an FX8350 likewise clocked to max) with Crossfire or SLI?
Because LGA115x (say a Skylake i7 6700K) with for example a GTX 1080 draws under 350W. For instance, this Hexus review with an [email protected] has their most power hungry GTX1080 consuming 262W gaming with the most power hungry cards (GTX980Ti and R9-390) drawing 320W.

I would rather buy a quality 500W-600W supply (Gold or better made by either Seasonic or Superflower) rather than a poor 750W made by CWT. If budget is an issue, better to get non-modular or semi-modular. Semi-modular is often far £10+ cheaper and those cables which aren't modular are pretty much going to be used for all builds anyhow.

EDIT

How about some of the ones from here:

The 550W EVGA SuperNOVA GS is Seasonic (review here: jonnyguru.com/mod…php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=438)
The Antec 550W Truepower Classic is (AFAIK) Seasonic too. So is the XFX.

500w would be enough .. going to be using MSI Z170-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard with i7 6700k with gpu gtx 1060 6gb

Had one before. Terrible coil whine

Honestly if you are spending that much anyway, don't scrimp on the PSU, it's the one part you will still potentially have in 10 years. GKains picks look good and generally Any seasonic or Silverstone based or branded gold certified should serve you well.

I did some research for a recent build and this coolermaster G650M had good comments and has been fine running 6700k and gtx 1070. Scan
