Found 15th Aug 2017
I've been keeping an eye for a PSU as my one has recently died. Came across the EVGA SuperNova 650W G3 Modular PSU.

It's normally over £90 and is now at the cheapest it has ever been.

Hopefully of use to some folks.

Voted Hot. Great price for a great PSU those that are voting cold will probably buy a £30 PSU and complain when it messes up. One thing you shouldn't cheap out on with a pc build is a PSU

Same here. At £83.99 this would be a good deal.
bad power supplies can destroy whole system if they overvolt or undervolt cheaper ones come with less protection EVGA's best PSU are made for them by superflower which makes some of the best in the world unlike. please be weary of corsair which charge as much but have high failure rates by comparison to other premium psu makers. i personally have a superflower PSU, this particular PSU was made by superflower for EVGA so its premium look at this review and see the guy strip it down and test it EVGA 650w supernova G3 review.
I'm in favour of high quality power supplies after having seen (not directly mind you) what they can do to a system. Used to know someone who was using a £10 500W PSU, powering maybe 300W of hardware with it. He was asking why his PC kept shutting off and then was asking about how to overclock (just no, fix the problems first). Turned out when we got voltage measurements out of the motherboard that the 12V rail was hanging around 11.2V i.e. well outside of spec (minimum they're allowed to go is 11.6V to meet the ATX specification). Told him to replace it, he didn't. Next day the PSU blew up and took the motherboard, CPU and RAM with it. What was potentially a £50 mistake became a £300 one.

650W's probably a little big for most systems mind you.

Can you post a link about corsairs high failure rates?


just google failure rates and u can find statistical data cos the companies release it periodically, and of course i dont mean all corsair stuff is bad but its not always as good as they want you to think it is like the HX and AX series PSU which many were hundreds of pounds but had high failure rates but the more recent TX ones which are bulletproof just do some research before u buy something, the jonnyguru website is a great place for some information as he checks the components to see if they made good PCB and what components they assembled the PSU from so you can be well informed. dont forget a lot of people have psu that is performing well on the 3.3v and 5v but badly out of spec on 12v rail or something which so although the pc may run depending on how far over or undervolted the rail is damage may be occuring which would eventually lead to bluescreens or total failure.

heres a link just incase you dont care and just wanted a link to see some numbers failure rates

i've just bought a corsair hx1000i platinum last week because of the high review from the guru site.
