Great price for a great unit. Will run the vast majority of gaming computers that people build.
If only this was 550, it would be perfect for my HTPC
Good psu I'm sure, but Scan are scum. Don't trust them, they are a nightmare with returns/refunds and customer service in general.

I returned something instore. The guy was typing fast for about 3 minutes then handed me a dot matrix printout and said refund will be processed in 3 to 5 days. No eye contact no conversation. It felt weird.

That sounds like a good result. I've had numerous problems with them until I finally decided it was worth paying an extra £5 or so from a competitor.
I returned a motherboard that died after a month (and had gone out of production) and was told i cannot have a refund and was given another board with "similar specs" that was a cheap pos. I had problems with ram that was doa and they apparently tested them 24/7 on a testbed without fault. I went back to the store and after arguing with them, replicated the fault within minutes.
They're an arrogant, money grabbing business that only care about getting your money and never seeing you again.

If you need a 550 watt Power supply, it's not a HTPC.

Oh sorry I didn’t realise every HTPC conformed to some low power draw standard.

Yes it is a HTPC in essence, as it will be for streaming media (when I buy a PSU) but it’s essentially my old rig so the girlfriend and I can play local co-op games when the mood strikes and I can take it mate’s houses for LAN days as opposed to lugging the main PC.

I guess saying ‘if only it was 550W so I could use it for my second PC which is half HTPC, half Gaming PC’ was a bit much but I didn’t think I’d have to explain the subtleties of my situation to someone on HDUK...

Huh. Was going to go there today. Now, maybe not.
Would this power a Ryzen 3700x, 5700XT, 2x8GB DDR4, 1x NVME, 1x SSD, 6 fans?

I'm using a 500w cheap power supply at the moment but my computer is turning off during heavy load so I think it's faulty.

No, you need higher wattage. The 5700xt is a power hungry card

Thank you. Any recommendations?

I’d go for Corsair, EVGA or SeaSonic. They’re usually really solid power supplies.

AMD recommend a minimum of 700W for the 5700 XT (as stated in the link at the bottom of my post), but you need to take in to account the 3700X etc.
