(Link for 600 model is broken)
good to know i would've been too slow anyways. Fumbling around with my card tryna double check if i typed it in correctly.
I'll keep an eye out for similar
Thought it was gonna be me, got all the way through PayPal and everything (mad)
Lol, literally only 1 available and someone snatched it up quick.
Want to jump to 3700x
The ryzen 3600 is cheaper at £152 ish. and newer has an increase in ipc, It's better at gaming as well. The ryz7 is smashing for high end multitasking, however a ryz5 6core 12 thread cpu is more then enough for most folks or even too much for most tbh,
177 for it why not and I have room to upgrade
Any reason u have thought of the older zen+ ryzen 7 2700x 8core / 16 thread, quite expensive atm on the open market.
Did someone say 2001? I'm still using my Coolermaster ACTS 201B: Actually also using my Logitech z2200, they have lots of bass (nerd)
I don't like the style of cases with optical drive bays the side look good but the front looks out dated I like the thermaltake core x71 but don't want to support that they copied case labs
Corsair 110R, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG
A great deal, but it's well worth it to get a PSU with an 80 Plus certification, which I see no mention of for this PSU. Never cheap out on a PSU, it can fry all your other components
I just bought the fully modular 650W version of this. Researching it one review said it reached 700 watt. As for the rest of your comment... Jesus... as you say, 'dumb'.
Yes, of course, and you'll be taking advantage of the Gold efficiency rating which peaks at around 50% usage... not that you'd save that much on the elecy bill in reality, but...
My estimated wattage for PC I'm building is 250W so I assume this should be plenty?
No every decent brand easy runs what they say or more... this deal is dumb since you can get bigger for the same price thats around the same grade. 450w will not be enough for a big gaming pc. Enjoy throwing 60 quid to game on a low tier card... why would someone pay 60 for this if they cant afford a bigger card? Its stupid... makes no sense... dumb price bracket for the psu simple as that.
Very doubtful any PSU wont run anywhere near it's quoted power. Top tier ones are more lightly.
Back in stock again. £64.99 with the COMPONENTSFNDD and a (possible) 1% quidco, bringing my total cost down to a shade over £60. Good deal for a gold-rated PSU. Thanks OP. Gopes
Hi there, can you post the link please?
Got it yesterday! Suddenly my RX580 stopped rebooting my PC! Great buy!
Out of stock I'm afraid :<
Just purchased via eBay. Got 5% off and used some Nectar points...so ended up paying £53.99. Looking forward to installing inside my Thermaltake V1.
Looks like they only do a few supplies: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/RioToro.html Only the G2 is Seasonic, the rest are GreatWall Quite a saving though compared to Seasonic original according to skinflint https://skinflint.co.uk/?cmp=1658715&cmp=1658900&active=1 £180 vs £96, although I suppose there might be other Seasonic Focus Plus Gold rebrands too.
But possible not the EVGA one which scan sell? Scan list it as 210-GQ-0850-V3 https://www.scan.co.uk/products/850w-evga-gq-series-hybrid-modular-80plus-gold-sli-crossfire-single-rail-708a-135mm-fan-atx-psu# The PSU review database at Realhardtechx.com http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page2293.htm Only lists the 210-GQ-0850-V1 and that's a FSP build supply. EVGA's Superflower made supplies tend to have numbers in the name. For example 850 G2, 850 G3, 850 P2, 850 T2 where G, P, T stand for Gold, Platinum, Titanium etc. and presumable the numbers when it was released. AFAICT, GQ is always FSP, GS is always Seasonic, etc.
Riotoro buys PSU's to sell - in the example given it is one made by Seasonic and is rebaged Focus gold (not platinuim) variant. Caps slightly lower in spec but still 105 degrees Japanese design Comes with 10 years warranty too
From what I remember this psu is A+ on the linus tech tips forums (2nd highest tier) it's a outstanding power supply. I've had mine for 6 years.. Pretty sure the warranty is 10 years
Yes, actually it was reading a review for an EVGA Supernova G3 850W where I found out that used the Leadex II model. Imagine my delight finding this Leadex III for an even cheaper price. XD
I only use seasonic. The best PSU builds and customer support out there IMO.
Seasonic are renowned for building quality psu. My X750 still going strong must be atleast 10years old.
Seaaonic customer service is excellent. My x550 PSU was making a clicking noise after several years of owning it. I sent it back to them in Germany and in about 4 days they replaced it with a brand new x650 with 7 years warranty. Absolutely fantastic and worth paying a premium for
Shortage of decent power packs at present so expect premium prices.
If 650w isn't a must and 55w will do this is also a good option in my view. Yes it does have rgb hah but it's barely visible or can be turned off I'm sure. It's also fully modular https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B075SHDG57/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_yd.WEbT13T5FZ
This is where I don't agree - efficiency is relative and related to everything else, it's not like in a car where you can increase the compression to gain power at the detriment of longevity or in a CPU where higher voltage allows you to OC more. By improving efficiency you are making gains everywhere (that I can think of). The gap between Bronze and Gold is pretty big 5 percentage points in some cases, much more than Gold to Titanium for example. Bronze is easy to attain in 2020 with modern electronics. I would doubt this is a 'top-tier' Bronze, why not Silver then? Nothing wrong with this PSU probably but it is expensive for a Bronze-rated PSU and that's why it's not getting a great reception. If you're a PC builder then you must understand how much easier it is to sell someone a quality Gold-rated over a Bronze-rated one (no matter how good it is). Anyway I said all that's needed I think - the ratings are there to help make an informed decision, not the only thing to look at.
Qs: but obviously if a manufacturer can get a Gold rating instead of a Bronze they will go for Gold, my reply: makes sense to me and u i agree, sadly alot of firms dont, they sometimes keep it shorter, so it markets that range, but ref to my last comment, as depends on how far wide off the mark. But I don't understand, are you actually suggesting the Corsair is running the unit beyond spec to attain Gold-rated? My Reply: im not saying corsair do that, but is common practice and statement in our Bronze VS Gold, it is so easy with tec stuff to change values on something in one area but counter reacts in another because they dont back it up with the quality for that reliability as i said before, now further to that, if we have 2 psus which are say near enough bang on in quality / performance, and they are 005% both from a gold, one firm would tweak that to be a gold. while another would keep it as a bronze because it covers them in their "marketing aspect". now what we do know for full facts is the PSU in question is not the elite gold range, its a gold, for their gold range its quite low comparable to all there other golds? correct?..... VS a Bronze which is right up the top tier of in the bronzes. so how much is flushed is the qs, im happy to use both, but dont knock it cos its a bronze and ill stand by that. and i found these to be more reliable.
Not arguing with that really - but obviously if a manufacturer can get a Gold rating instead of a Bronze they will go for Gold, the accreditation costs the same regardless (or should do) and they will sell more. But I don't understand, are you actually suggesting the Corsair is running the unit beyond spec to attain Gold-rated? I don't see how this is possible - you can't really fake efficiency standards, if it's less efficient and wasting more power as heat then that's poorer design. If you tweak things to get to a higher-standard, I doubt you are actually stressing other components harder as you are making the thing more efficient. Yes, I know the TX-M isn't premium, that's why I said 'mid/high' - personally I wouldn't be bothering with anything less than an RM these days but I have some systems running the AX and HX units. I mean, I probably wouldn't pass up on this Be Quiet either but at this price point I would expect a better rating - and, of course, it's not the only thing to look at but PSUs have been hard to get hold of recently and either out of stock or overpriced. The Gigabyte G750M from Novatech is not bad for the money either. I found a Kitguru review for the U9 version of this PSU but that's for 110V and a different platform so not comparable they said. I wonder if it still uses a sleeve bearing fan and lower-spec capacitors though...
i agree that "bronze" is easy to reach for so many, but if the base product is designed great which both are, it is very easy to manipulate a gold from that standard which is very common for brands to do so, where as other brands would rather keep it in line because of their product range, "i.e marketing comes into it".... where as another firm, rather keep that base in marketing as a bronze, otherwise they have to many in the same pot as gold, and that Corsair we speak of is not their prem range, my point is both are good, very reliable, but if ur dissing one because its a bronze, need to rethink between the 2 products it certainly isnt straight forward and not what u first see, i.e GOLD it must be better. . the PW 9 is a product i back and recommend. for the price of 700w for 600w is a good price,
There might be poor Gold ones but if you stick to the big brands they are very rare - I am yet to see a bad Gold-rated (or above) Corsair, EVGA, Seasonic, etc. but Bronze is an easy standard to reach. This power supply is fine but overpriced, they have all gone up since the pandemic and paying this kind of money for a 700W Bronze-rated when the Corsair Gold TX-M is slightly more seems like false economy. I am not saying Bronze-rated PSUs are rubbish but if you use good components then you're almost certain to get a good efficiency rating off the back of that. 700W rated power is extremely high for most users, even under full-load one of my PCs (with watt meter built-in) doesn't exceed 250W AC power (at the wall). I would be wary of claiming this Be Quiet SP9 is more reliable than a Corsair premium PSU (e.g. mid-high end Gold-rated or higher).
I guess he is playing Crysis in max settings (lol)
I was thinking this too. One of the gaming PCs I use (only mention this as it's the only one with energy monitoring) uses 250W peak at the wall under full-load. 650W Gold-rated is suitable for 95%+ of machines and this is a decent unit. SLi and Crossfire is a waste of time these days, I know some people doing compute might run multiple cards but then they will be looking at pro-grade hardware too, I imagine - I guess miners will want big PSUs too but again, very few doing this in the UK!
I'm still rocking my 10 year old OCZ PSU in a new build. Would like to upgrade though as it's the noisiest component in the system...even though it's still quiet anyway!
850w gold is a good investment nowadays right? For just one beefy graphics card and a power hungry CPU? Last time I built a PC a thousand watts was what the cools kids used.
WHO SLIS since 2014? no one... its offers NOTHING, they dont even support in 99% of the games released :\ a good 650W PSU will support ANY pc built from the last 2 years and still have room to spare.
Seasonic Focus GX 850 80+ GOLD PSU/Power Supply is for £109.99 at Scan, I accidentally ordered from Currys without thinking, got a price match (admittedly not easily) and they didn't factor in delivery fees. So a pretty good deal!
Gone now anyway. But I paid this on Amazon a few months ago for my build. Probably an amazing price for Currys (flirt) but hardly a deal.
All things considered it’s a draw between RM 750X and EVGA G3, but they not the same, they got lots of difference
Johhnyguru highly rated this PSU, lost marks for being a bit expensive but at £100 it's not too bad a deal. It is a fantastic PSU, much like the Evga G3. Both have 10 year warranty too, not sure which is cheaper the ship to though.
Bought the white version in December for 80 quid. Awesome PSU
They have best prices on Corsair PSU's. Downside is they're not replenishing their stock so most items out of stock. I wanted the RM750, then TX750 but both sold out so went with TX850m
I imagine both will be fine for 24/7 usage. Same caps and similar internals, RMx will be quieter but both will likely produce less noise than the GPU and other fans.
Actually I bought this psu for my Plex server which runs 24/7. Currently I’m using hp oem high efficient platinum 320w psu. But I need to upgrade my gpu to get more transcodes. I already bought a MSi Armor GeForce 1660 oc. Do you think RM-X is good for 24/7 run? :)
If you can get the rmx for the same price you should go for it, normally they're a £20-£30 increase over the txm. You sure it's not a standard RM (non x) for the same price, which is a bit below the txm?
Thank you for the explanation. I just read the JonnyGuru's explanation too. I think it's better to return TX-M and go for RM-X. But only thing bothering me is why Crosair put same price tag for two different products which has distinct features. (highfive)
Well its powered up the system but no gpu so cant say more than that at moment. Not sure how to really "test" a psu, but 10 year warranty on it it cant be that bad. It will be made by a company that makes them for other brands
Is it any good?
I'd say moderate load, playing rts games like total war warhammer 2 and eve online. The cpu cooler was louder (however just changing that now to an arctic to should quiet the whole thing down.)
Is that under heavy load or idle? I have about 100W more load than you I think (2700X + 2070 super over here)
Dead silent, got it running on my Asus b450 plus, ryzen 3600, gtx 960 doesn't make a peep the case fans (Sahara P35) on low setting are louder. I ordered this on a gamble but super chuffed, thick black cables, 10 year warranty can't complain.
Thanks. I have a corsair VS450 (after my old Tagan PSU developed a ticking noise, bless it ;( ). The Corsair is a POS which doesn't meet it's stated 12V rating and trips out my machine if I don't restrict Graphic Card and CPU load.
It's just another noname brand. Just buy Corsair one.
Damn missed it again
I've somehow been really lucky with PSUs and never had one fail on me. Currently running a 10 year old ocz 700w and it's on its third system! :o
Wtf this price is also used to be expensive before coronavirus pandemic. (annoyed) (fierce)
I've tried that with a few things on their site but never get an email!
Even though it is out of stock, you can subscribe to their email, which will notify you when it will be back in stock.
Damn, it was in stock a few hours ago
Well I've owned this now for over 2 weeks so I'm confident it's not a bad example. Fan doesn't spin on mine no matter what load I have put it under so I call that a success and a win for quietness. If current prices weren't a consideration: Would I choose this over an RMi 850? No. Whould I rather have a decent gold/platinum 80+ rated 750w Seasonic? Yes. Is this a bad PSU? In my opinion, no. To reiterate what I said before there is something to be said for standing out from the crowd. I'm not talking about RGB in a PSU - because that's the last thing you should be picking your PSU on. I'm talking about having a system with a configuration that's a bit different - a bit quirky - and still capable. There are tonnes of builds out there with Corsair/Seasonic power supplies, and for good reason. They're reputable, reliable, backed by decent warranties from established brands. But there aren't nearly as many builds featuring this PSU, and that's not because this PSU is especially bad, but it is in a sense that's what makes this PSU special. So make of it what you will. There are those of you who will only ever buy Corsair/Seasonic/BeQuiet/Silverstone, and that's fair enough; justified even. But, there are those of us who are willing to look beyond the brand as a whole and judge a product on it's merits. This is one such product. I like it. I don't think it's the best, but I think there's a lot worse - and it surpasses my expectations of silence.
So mine came today, slow delivery from CCL must say. Very happy so far. Will see how it does over the next few months. I've searched the internet high and low and while there do seem to be a fair share of "bad" instances, I still stand by what I said before. 7 year warranty + johnny guru I trust in to see beyond the brand logo. If it has to go back, so be it. It's working now though, and it fixed the problem I was having with my old 11 year old Hiper M1000 PSU, so overall happy. Excuse the non-existent cable management!
Too much bs on YT, Tia. Corsair are not perfect either, you get manufacturing faults. 2nd Corsair PSU in my Intel PC. Quick: 1st psu blew motherboard + ram + some drives so what happened to protection. Did the Corsair warranty stand up: Yes, quite good. I was full compensated for all costs encured + a new psu. It took a lot of emails back and forth including asking why I was ignored etc.. It's a long game but you get the prize.
I ordered this Aerocool Project 7 850W after reading some raving reviews and it blew as soon as it was installed and powered on. Amazon then sent a replacement that encountered the same fate, albeit, 2 hours after use instead of immediately. Returned and bought a Corsair, which has been solid since. I thought it may have just been a bad batch, but after seeing the comments here, seems to be more common than I thought. Would definitely stay away from this one, definitely do not buy into the reviews.
I agree. You have to be REALLY stupid to pay £100 for this firecracker, when Corsair, EVGA or Seasonic are £20 extra. Risking hundreds or thousands of £ to save £20 does not make sense. I haven't encountered anything even half decent quality from Aerocool.
Possibly not. I used this as a calculator... https://outervision.com/b/WWwjes And adjusted the efficiency to 80Plus Gold and it recommended an 850W PSU
I bet an fx 9590 at 5ghz and a GTX 480 pc would not consume 850w
Hmm power usage has dropped / stayed steady the last 5 years.
Yes, it would have been but I plan on upgrading his system in 3-4 years time. He’s rocking an old i5-2400 with 16GB DDR3 and a 2.5inch SSD. It’s perfectly capable for the time being (given the games he plays and the homework he needs to do) until I give him my rig and then I’ll use the NXZT PSU in whatever rig I build myself in 3-4 years time.
Wouldnt 850w be a bit too much for an Rx 580?.Wouldn't something like a TX650M be fine?
cheers thanks, wasnt sure if there was a code..
Oh sorry it seems that the deal has expired, it was applied automatically before as it was advertised as free delivery
how do you get free postage/?
Looks like price went up since yesterday. I managed to order one for myself at £89 with free shipping.
Damn missed this deal
the psu is definitely nt super silent, my 10 year old bequiet is far quieter. Unfortunately I'm going to have to send this back, shame as I built the system already, but lesson learned about buying a case/psu deal
Bought a prebuilt with this as a case, with the intention of housing the bits in something fancier with better airflow somewhere down the line. Keeps a ryzen 2700X and an RTX2070 plenty cool enough even with the fans that come as stock. So much so that I haven't really seen the point in upgrading. I did turn off the front LED fans though, as I'm not 6, even if it did lose me 40fps in games.
Is the PSU any good?
Bad for airflow however.
