A brilliant PSU with 85% efficiency, giving it bronze certification.

Has 4x PCI-E cables for native Crossfire/SLI support easily, hard to find 4x PCI-E cables with a such a good 650W PSU!

I have a 5850 crossfire rig which runs at a load of about 350-450W so don't waste any more money/electricity on a 1000W PSU when this is enough for 99% of systems.

Excellent price, but for £1 more you can get coolermaster 750W psu Excellent price, but for £1 more you can get coolermaster 750W psu http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-coolermaster-rs750-acaae3-uk-gx-80-plus-85-eff-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-120mm-fan



Worth pointing out that you have to go to the 'Today Only' page for this price! At least I would have thought it was.

Also worth noting that it maybe £1 more but your paying for a inferior Psu, the Coolermaster GX series are rubbish. The XFX 650w is where my money would go, its based on Seasonic too.

This or the coolermaster, regardless of power output?

The link puts it straight into your basket at the offer price for me, is it not working?

You, sir, know your stuff. Shame the rest of HUKD don't. But it's up to them what they buy, I'm simply sharing a bargain, it's a free world.

A bit annoyed as I bought this from Dabs on the 9th for £60 and then they lost the parcel and I waited a while and tried to cancel due to their poor customer support and the way that they kept on saying that they will get back to me but never did. However, they wouldn't/couldn't cancel the order and it took until this morning to deliver it but I slept in and my parents accepted the parcel so now I'm still wondering whether I should pay the hefty delivery fee back or what.. Sigh.

I'd go for this personally. Nothing against Coolermaster but this one just seems better to me, I can't compare though as I've not got the coolermaster and I don't have the testing materials so I guess it'll be best for you to look up some reviews.

Ok I've got this PSU installed and it seems to be a tad bit more efficient than my Corsair TX750W as it uses 375W as opposed to 385W on load with the same setup. Although this could just be more to do with variability than actual power draw?

Both are pretty silent though as I can't hear them over the case/graphics/CPU fan so I can't compare the noise from the two.
