That cx450m the model I thought this was originally. It's still £47.99 on Amazon, and I'd opt for that personally. If you don't need the second PCI-e connector or for it to be semi modular this would probably be the better option

rp7122

Yeah not ideal for a 450w PSU to only have one PCI-e connector, but in reality it shouldn't affect that many, unless you have some 1070's or above which require two power connectors. The CX450m does have two PCI-e power connectors which isn't normally too much more than this.

Gormond

Is that unusual for a 450w PSU? That would allow it to provide 225w of power to a graphics card leaving 225w for the rest of the system.

CAL23

Tier 3: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/ Not bad for £40

Whoops, I thought it was the semi-modular version. Thanks letting me know.

Could you evidence this please? I have 4 EVGA PSUs, all quiet, and this is not mentioned on newegg, pcpartpicker, jonnyguru or amazon. Just a few reports of units with coil whine and ticking fans

Really? Never heard a peep from my 650W.

quertbarbie62

looks like someone needs a more powerful psu.

plewis00

I just think anyone running high-end stuff like closed-loop cooling will probably be speccing something better like an EVGA Platinum or Corsair HX, so something like this is for mid-high end gaming machines on a slightly tighter budget. But it's a bit of a moot point here, personally I just choose quality over noise, but peoples' needs differ. I bought a VS a few times before I knew about all of this and the VS PCIe leads melted/browned with an undervolted R9 Nano... so I just don't think it's up to it. The RM is rated to 50C but I've had a temp gun on it and it's been up to 58C exhaust, it'd probably be covered under warranty if it failed but I'd just rather the fan ran quicker and got the heat out of it. Tried to claim the VS on Corsair warranty, what a hassle that was...

power supply alone is just under £100 making the 1070ti just under £300
doveman007

Now the 2070 is out I wonder how much EVGA would charge to Step Up? How would they determine how much we've already paid for the GPU part of this bundle? EDIT: Never mind. This bundle works out as 76% of the MSRP, so the 1070ti part of it was only £314.66. The Step Up only includes the 2070 XC Black Gaming which is 549.99e/£484.50, so the difference to pay would be £169.84 plus shipping in both directions. If it had been about £60 I would have gone for it just to upgrade to a card that'll receive ongoing driver updates but for that price it's not worth it and even without driver updates it should have enough power to get by for a few years.

If you've not seen it already there is a fantastic post on blurbusters all about the best set up for G-Sync. Basically the original setup had vsync enabled by default but this was changed because of people wanting max frame rate for FPS games. The problem is turning vsync off removes the frame rate cap and takes you out of the G-Sync range which gives you tearing. Additionally Nvidia's vsync implementation actually smooths out gameplay and stops micro stutter and jitter. G-Sync on and vsync on is the recommended setup and is noticeably better. forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3441 https://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/gsync101-input-lag-tests-and-settings/14/

wah0007

I keep V-sync on too and there's no noise (there may be some but the fans get louder so maybe can't hear it). I'm pretty sure though that I tested the GPU in the first few days without V-sync and there was no coil whine, it probably started after a few days. I've not been near the PC for a few days before last night as I use Nvidia game stream so mostly play on the TV which is downstairs.

bouttime2

Firestrike is a prime example of a program that can cause coil whine when loading.

bouttime2

In my experience GPU coil whine happens when the frame rate is uncapped on loading screens. I always enable vsync as it keeps the FPS within the Gsync range.

joe_shmoe

Only jonnyguru site reviews matter. Electronics engineers stripping down units to see the components,design layout, and testing them in hot boxes etc. WTF does linus know?

Mystogan

Depends on which Platinum PSU, in general the best brands for PSU are Seasonic, Superflower and FSP and other PSUs are usually made by them and then rebadged by another company. In the end read reviews on the PSU you want as they each come with their own pros and cons, such as loud fan noise or short cables. For this PSU, jonnyguru, a very reputable PSU reviewer, scored it very highly.

Is that too low?? Or too high? I can only picture the more powerful components drawing more power. MOAR POWAAAAA

I should point out that Scan have been good about this (as they always are).

n707301

So without seeing this deal I went ahead and ordered this PSU from Scan..... what a mistake.... Worked for about 5 days before the first PC reset (the machine just dies and reboots) when playing on Oculus Rift. From that point on the resets got more and more frequent. Initially was only happening with Rift, so I dutifully removed and re-installed drivers, re-installed Windows (maybe drivers), etc etc, no luck. Last night it failed when running a non-rift game which had happily run before, so emailed Scan for a RMA. What I got back was not good..... Scan basically said that they are aware of issues with the Factory Refurb'd PSU's. Um, whut? As @FireOnAWire and @rp7122 said, Corsair VS series + refurb, avoid. Frankly, if Corsair get enough failures that they can create a factory line to refurb these and those refurbs are then failing, then this is just a crap product. See here for a list of decent PSU's (the VS650 is a Tier 6 - one level above the bottom rung): https://www.hotukdeals.com/visit/comment/35434865/15568691

Doubt it, that's all done by ASICs and the coin emission rate remains the same as the difficulty also rises. I think there's too many GPUs in the market anyway so hopefully people who want them can get their hands on them now.

I've had the 650W version, but sent it back to rma, because the fan had grinding sound, replaced to a Corsair RM-X psu, what is dead silent even under heavy load. So careful with the fan on this model, if you make some research online, you'll realise this grinding noisy fan is common on this model for some reason. Good luck.

It’s a tier 2 PSU so it’s actually not bad compared to some of the junk they make but unless you’re part of the RGB crowd, the EVGA GQ and G3 or Corsair RM and TX that’s recently been posted are much better value all round.

Great quality PSU. But just a reminder this is overkill for 99% of builds unless you plan to SLI/Crossfire (which is a bit pointless anyway)

Bought this last week for £90.90 it was dispatched and passed to courier and then no further update. They updated the delivery estimate from 4th September to 10th still nothing. I contact Amazon and they tell me it's lost. I ask them to send a replacement but they say as it is warehouse they can't so offer me a refund. It is still available to order 'like new' for £97 but they won't send me it. If I want it I have to re-order it and pay the price difference because they lost the one I bought. I used to rate Amazon customer service but last few times they have been really unhelpful. I pay for prime but they make me wait a week before I can get a refund and will not send me a replacement even though it is in stock because it is 'from the warehouse' crap

Mine arrived today. All cables present except the digital corsair link, which apparently isn't needed if you use the USB corsair link cable. Came with a EU lead, but will buy a kettle lead to replace. PS - If you need a UK kettle lead, make sure it's rated for high amps -- the enclosed one is 10A. I went with a 16 AWG thick C13 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/C2G-Power-Cord-IEC320C13-1363-Black/dp/B002CZQ3FW/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1531953556&sr=8-11&keywords=c13+awg). There's a lot of cheap (e,g, 20 AWG) kettle leads on amazon and they're bordering on too thin for a PSU like this.

I read that. If that’s what you did from day one then you voided the warranty anyway so don’t act like there ever was one as if you’re so smart. Cleaning dust out isn’t the only point of failure either... More fool you for using £9 PSUs. Just because anecdotally your budget PSUs didn’t blow up in spectacular fashion doesn’t mean I’d recommend it. I’m sure somewhere there are Peugeot’s that have actually got to 100k miles without ever breaking down, doesn’t mean ‘Peugeot cars don’t break down’ or that I’d ever recommend buying one.

80+ IS pretty poor efficiency , would expect at least bronze... All we need next is the actual mains lead to be LED , I know someone who built a Bling PC and has been blinded in all three eyes when he turned it on the first time TRUTH! All the PSU calculatiors are way overkill , deduct at least 20% if not 30%. Thernaltake prolly dont make this , just bought in and badge slapped..

plewis00

Two identical PSUs seems like overkill. Just one good quality one that's maintained will outlast most PC builds 2-3 times over. Taking the cowl off a PSU to clean it voids the warranty and risks damage (snagged cables, for example).
