Of course they want you to believe that branded power supplies are better, that is the whole point of branding. But I think that HP and Dell have a much better grip on their quality control than a company like EVGA.


I don't know how to tell you this but outside of the enterprise HP and Dell just rebadge Chinese power supplies for use in their PCs. Awkward...

The operating temperature is what I'm trying to bring your attention too.If your case allows you to position this PSU so its pulling cool air directly from outside the case you might be OK. If your PSU is pulling air from inside the case you are going to have problems with hitting that max temp. This EVGA power supply is rated at a max of just 30c. There are no details on the de-rating curve for this PSU. You could be looking at 420w@35c, 380w@40c, or worse.The £32.99 PSU you mention delivers 430w@40c. Delivering more power at the same temperature.



But the one thing you seem to overlook is that this PSU is more expensive with EVERY other outlet on the net by at least £5.00. That for me is how this site works. Somebody finds the cheapest place to buy X product and posts it. The rest of us say thank you, even if it's not a product we want to buy for whatever reason. You make some fair points with the numbers and some of what you say is informative but it's still the cheapest you can get this item. If it's not for you then fair enough but it's still a "deal" in the purest sense.

Likewise!

Bought a cheap one of these very recently, Lasted two weeks. Must have been unlucky but I won't take a chance on a cheap PSU again. A hot price though so plus one from me.

Shame it don't have more juice.. Case/cpu fans alone can take loads of watts. 150/120 watts?

... edit.. I'm talking rubbish here, those ratings refer to max heat dispersal capabilty

I think 450w is plenty for most budget systems, and probably not far of what a high end one GPU system needs. And no I don't think fans take 150/120 watts...

Was just gonna say, case fans (120mm) are typically 2-3 watts each. So unless you are running 60 of them...........
But I now see you edited..

Bargain! Good brand and decent efficiency rating. Would be sufficient for a powerful PC too with todays efficient components. I'm using my 520w to power quite a beast of a machine.

This is a good quality branded power supply not a generic cheaply made one. This is perfect for anything that does not have high end graphics card or processor with speciality cooling.

This will be far superior to the power supply that came with your pre-built computer.

PS: I'm a regular user of Ebuyer and to date I have never had a problem with the items ordered nor delivery.

just a heads up the price as dropped to £24.98 so you might adjust the title

Just got to keep this beast below 30c if you want to draw more than 400watt.

Decent price. 2 PCI 8 pin connectors as well!

great price have some heat. Never had too much trouble with ebuyer to be honest, but heard many a horror story

£24.99 for a branded 80+ bronze IS a deal. Why are you being so negative about it? Check google to see the price of this PSU with every other retailer and you will see. I don't see the point of lazy comments like this. You're going to struggle to get anything better than this at the price. If you need something more powerful or efficient it's going to cost you more money. Judge the deal on its merits even if it's not for you.

Officially you can supposedly run a GTX 1080 or 1080Ti and an i7 off a 500w PSU. I'd believe it when I see it though tbh.

Like I'm doing right now.

You'd be very hard pushed to use 400w of power with new CPU's and a single GPU, power consumption has dropped significantly in the last 7 odd years. PSU requirements are also massively inflated to what the component needs.

Seriously? Because I know someone who tried to run an i7 and a 1080 from a Gold-rated 500w PSU and it just couldn't handle it.

Why? Working out the wattage draw is quite easy to do. Stay away from the con of "PSU calculators" and check out each component manually.

A good 500w PSU will run that config.

30c is really low. You shouldn't normally be paying more then £20-25 for this PSU. Hardly a deal.

It's not the total power rating that's so important, it's more the amount of current that the PSU can supply on the +12v rail (or rails in a multi-rail PSU). So a 500W PSU with a single 12v rail rated at 18A will have a max. 12v output power of 216W.

Well the power efficiency is all regulated a branded PSU is a much better option. You're dealing with a company with a more reliable track record. EVGA and corsair are recommended for a reason.

Cheap, often unbranded, PSU's can take the whole system with it. They aren't worth it.

Brand is not as important as who actually makes the PSU. EVGA don't manufacture any of their own PSU's. They buy them from HEC, FSP, Superflower, Seasonic etc Then rebrand them as EVGA PSU's. Just like most other branded PSU's.
Its unclear who actually makes this PSU which is worrying in itself.

Now considering the exceptionally low temperature threshold of 30c. This PSU priced at £24.98 is a fair value for what you are buying. Add the £13.30 discount back on and its overpriced.

Buying this PSU for a reasonable price, when it was overpriced to start with, doesn't make it a deal.

So in short, no you can't. If you take Ebuyer as an example, the next 80+ PSU with 3 years warranty is £32.99. Therefore this is a deal. Mentioning £20.00 in your valuation of said PSU is rather disingenuous. Look at some of the rubbish they're flogging for twenty quid. Prices have increased fairly substantially since Brexit. Why not give the OP some credit?

I'm not concerned about the 80+ rating. The operating temperature is what I'm trying to bring your attention too.

If your case allows you to position this PSU so its pulling cool air directly from outside the case you might be OK. If your PSU is pulling air from inside the case you are going to have problems with hitting that max temp.

This EVGA power supply is rated at a max of just 30c. There are no details on the de-rating curve for this PSU. You could be looking at 420w@35c, 380w@40c, or worse.

The £32.99 PSU you mention delivers 430w@40c. Delivering more power at the same temperature.

PSU: £28
New PSU, motherboard, GPU, SSD etc when it explodes: £400
Learning not to cheap out on power supplies: Priceless

Given the drama (and fireworks) revolving around cheap evga units I'd just avoid.

A bit of both really, it's the cheapest price but it's not stable 450w output in certain circumstances i.e. in a warm climate. It's cheap because it's just not a good psu. On EVGA website the 450 BT costs $44.99 and the 450 B3 costs $49.99, that's a whole $5 difference but on ebuyer £24.98 and £47.99, £23 difference. I'm pretty simple minded but even I can see a mad dash to dump probmatic stock.

yorkshirepost.co.uk/new…576

Most PSUs run at about 40c, most of the components in my case run about 30c+ including hard drives, SSD, bridges etc according to CPUID HWMonitor. I would say the PSU would probably not run below 30c at ambient temperature its entire short lived life. It's like selling a car that can get great miles per gallon but only when driving down a steep hill

I wonder if there going to ban inefficient power supplies in the future?

Heat for the warranty 😁

Ummmm, HP And Dell use companies like Delta, FSP, Liteon, they also have to meet strict criteria for EMC etc.
