Gigabyte 700W Bronze PSU

Modular Design

The black flat cables are modular. Installing only the cables you need to increase the airflow and to improve the chassis thermal performance.

High Quality Japanese Electrolytic Capacitors

Main electrolytic capacitors are high quality Japanese electrolytic capacitors, to produce the efficient performance and to ensure the longer reliability.

120mm Smart Control Fan

120mm cooling fan with smart control system optimizes the noise reduction and the performance. The fan speed is adjusted according to the automatic power detection. The ball bearing fan provides longer and more stable life time.

80 Plus Bronze Certified

80 Plus certified ensures the better power efficiency. Less power waste reduces the heat and fan noise.

Single +12V Rail

Single +12V rail provides the best power output, stability and compatibility for the hardware. And it is the best design for overclocking.

It's semi modular but heat
5 year warranty! HOT!
Can't find reviews but can't be bad. Good brand. Bronze rated. Long warranty.
Will be more than fine for my media server with loads of room to grow.

I think I'll go for this over the Coolermaster G550M I had in my basket for a tenner more.

Indeed, no review from the usual PSU review database. Its listed though: CWT made from their 'GPK series'
Mind you, one of the few things a search throws up is that the Coolermaster G450M is CWT GPK series too:
jonnyguru.com/for…985
and
tweakers.net/pro…tml
So, for a tenner less it seems you get the same OEM and platform but in 700W vs 550W. No idea how either of them are for warranty though.

This is of course technical true, but surely every computer build will have the Mobo and CPU connectors. Might make it a bit harder to install or swap out the supply but that's about it.

Your PC can probably get away with half that. 1050 ti draws direct from motherboard max 75w and the g4560 is a low power draw.

Heck even a 250w can probably handle it
I have just waded through some reviews on mainly Korean websites. The foam packaging looks to a similar standard as my EVGA power supplies came in, which is encouraging. Some of the soldering and cable management within the review unit samples seemed a bit variable, visually, but the reviews seemed fairly consistent and, encouragingly, I couldn't find any mention of choke buzz or coil whine in any of the reviews.

The review on the website "i2hard" seemed to me representative of most of the other reviews I read:-

" Pros:
A good level of efficiency up to 88% of the maximum;
Wide input voltage range (important for Russian networks);
Part of a modular cable design;
Flat cables with soft locks on collapsible stocks;
High-quality assembly and painting of the hull;
High-quality circuitry;
Japanese smoothing capacitor;
voltage deviation does not exceed 3%;
A sufficient number of connectors;
Fan double ball bearing;
Quiet operation to load 500 W;
Ability to connect the two graphics cards;
Components, good packaging;
5-year warranty;
Affordable price.

Minuses:
Using Su'scon capacitors;
cable set is not as declared;
noise rise at a load of more than 500 watts. "

Several sites remarked that at 20% of capacity it came close to a silver rating, rather than bronze. Most remarked that up to 500 watts it was quite quiet, with it being very quiet up to 250 watts but quite noisy if total system draw is over 500 watts.

It seems to be £10 cheaper than Novatech, which was the next cheapest I could find. Have some more heat.

Good choice of processor
I don't know why they've bothered using a single quality Japanese cap for the filter Capacitor (the least likely to fail in a power supply regardless of quality) and filled the secondary side with cheap Su'scon and Tepo - questionable at best. Its cheap but if I were using it with expensive hardware I'd spend more and pay for a Seasonic built unit.

abit off topic but ​Just wait for AMDs Ryzen CPUs release on march 2nd which should have quad core power around your price point.

Only benefit is for those who cut/sleeve their own cables or buy custom length cables for everything. I have a fully modular PSU but as of yet I can't bring myself to shell out 15GBP-25GBP on a single cable when the whole 80+ Gold 750W PSU cost me 80GBP

I was looking at an i7-6800K with Asus X99 II motherboard, what motherboard would I be looking for if I went for the top AMD Ryzen (is it X1800?) which is comparatively cheap to even the i7-6950K behemoth?

Yeah, I can't see many people who buy a £50 PSU (or many people at all, for that matter...) shelling out for expensive, fully custom PSU cables or bothering to make their own.

As far as I'm concerned, and I suspect most other people who build PCs and actually pay retail prices for their components, semi-modular is pretty much as good as full modular because custom cables just aren't a concern.

I can almost guarantee the only reason you see so many YouTubers etc with fully custom PSU cables is because they're getting them for free, it'd be a whole different story if they had to part with their own money and pay retail price, like us dirty peasants.

Overkill.

Save your money and buy a low end EVGA unit and spend the extra £20-30 on a RX 470 cos the 1050Ti is crap value.

Thanks, but does does it mean if my build requires 300w psu according to that calculator I should get 300w? If I get this deal, would it be using 700w throughout? Hope that made sense

A PSU will not use the rated power (700w) constantly. It will draw whatever amount the system requires so if your machine needs 300w that's all it will draw from the wall.

Hope that clears it up for you and have fun with the build

Superb price, and looks a genuinely decent PSU, imagine you won't find much better for under £80.

Thats the only reason I'll be sticking with nvidia in the future, I stream to my phone alot (elite dangerous with VR headset) which AMD can't do (or at least not in hardware with acceptable latency), plus nvidia is still a generation ahead in terms of performance per watt. AMD might have the edge on performance per pound, but they've not made a properly decent class leading GPU since the 4000 series imo.

Wait a few weeks, I reckon theres a 1060 price drop looming to counter the cheap 480's

A quad core for the price of a G4560? I seriously doubt that. The quads will probably start from at least double that, they were supposed to be from $129 which is just as likely to translate to £129 at retail here. Still cheap but not £60 G4560 cheap.

GTX1060 will probably drop a little if retailers continue to force down the price of RX480. Nvidia's card is cheaper to produce, they have some leeway to reduce if it they believe sales are slowing but so far it's sold very well even in the face of the RX 480.

I like the idea of not having to use the 6pin connector. Anway to find out how much costs would be of running 1050ti and 1060?

You mean power consumption? ukpower.co.uk/too…ity

Use an electricity calculator if you must. The difference between them in that sense will be absolutely minimal though not even worth debating TBH

X370 motherboard for full features like xfire and full overclocking. Or a b350 motherboard for overclocking without xfire/SLI. The latter seems a lot more cost effective.

AM4 motherboard info available online if you google
Not sure if it's a glitch but the price of these have changed to £13.49
Can't not order one for this price :P
