Fully Modular, 650W, V-series, 80-plus Gold. £109 on Amazon. Seems like a really good deal.

Thanks - just was not sure from the description. Cheers

Cocksy

Yeah, it does!

harry66

Dumb question, but does this come with the cables? This modular stuff is new to an old guy like me.

plewis00

All the rigs we build for clients ran on Corsair RM, AX or HX, EVGA GQ/G3 or FSP Aurum PT but we needed 850-1200W per build hence the restrictions and Corsair seems to be more widely available in the UK. The problem with Coolermaster is they have a wide range from dreadful to really good (like this one). Out of interest what do you mine on 1050 (Ti?) - Ethereum or something else? You are right, a good PSU is a keeper, false economy to buy anything else - I use to buy that no-name stuff in the 90s and naughties, shudder at the thought now.

+1 nothing like some IT pass me downs that still work... now what draw did I put my iPhone X in ;) Bonus! Yes at the price, no if it goes back up! Tiptop words @plewis00 I try and always look "beyond" what other say or can see in the real data out there and feed it back in as common sense with not so much fluff. I think this is one of the best buys on hukd in the gaming/pc niches for a long time. The resin, pcb, components in these PSU's, as you have correctly said, are Tier 1+ AB rated, hence 8 into 1 will & is working fabulously and very cost effectively. (unicorn)

I can't complain for this price - it certainly beats any no-branded powersupply. But as mentioned below once you have a modular one there is no going back - well if you have a good quality one you wouldn't need to another.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to bring bargain deals to the HUKD community. Promoting OC's community is a different mission entirely.

Not sure if it really is 80+ Bronze, This is sub zero now I take a closer look at it, bbfb123 has cherry picked for the deal title, This is no better than any other 80+ power supply you can pick up for 40 quid. High Efficiency - 80+ 230V EU certified (meets 80+ Bronze 115V efficiency) Would be 80+ Bronze if I use it in the US. It's no different than this Corsair from Amazon for 40 quid with prime

babylon

Members who openly spam to increase post count will have their post count reduced No one has a problem with paying P&P, But Overclockers take liberties, If anyone here was selling a power supply on eBay they would never dream, Or even get away with charging £10.50 for delivery, And a shop shouldn't expect the average consumer, (The ones that give them there real profits) to subsidise there forum members. If I could pack it, And send it next day for less than a tenner, It's not much to ask for a shop that no doubt get's a DPD volume discount to do the same. As was said, there postage turns a deal into a non deal.

mrphantomb

Other than the grumbles about the merchant is there any reason this is not a good deal? I've never seen a 550W 80+bronze for less than £50.

Lowtrawler

I wouldn't buy this for a new build but as a replacement for a failed psu in a shop bought computer, seems ideal.

zorbathegeek

4 yr old review here https://www.eteknix.com/thermaltake-london-550w-power-supply-review/9/ "The Thermaltake London 550W is by no means a high-end or enthusiast grade power supply. Thermaltake’s decision to use CWT as the OEM producer make this unit a budget-orientated power supply with a nice upgrade from the usual 80 Plus Bronze efficiency we’d typically expect to find at this price point. This is by no means a bad thing because the Thermaltake London 550W is backed up by aggressive pricing that makes it cheaper than rival 80 Plus Gold 550W units from many other vendors. In this competitive market segment there are very few other vendors who can offer a competing product, the only notable one that stands out for me is the Corsair CS550M. That unit commands a virtually identical price point with the same hybrid modular design. The main difference between those two units is Thermaltake’s one offers a larger, and quieter fan as well as an extra 2 years on the warranty. When you put the Thermaltake London 550W within the context of its market segment it is clear to see it offers a stong value-for-money proposal that few can match. In reviewing the performance of the Thermaltake London 550W we’ve found that the value for money proposition doesn’t incur any significant performance penalties. The London 550W offers quiet operation, strong efficiency and better than expected ripple suppression. Voltage regulation is strong on the minor rails although the 12 volt rail can definitely be improved upon. For the money there is nothing that this unit lacks if you’re in the market for an affordable Gold rated power supply. As a final deal-sweetener the all-black cables with a hybrid-modular design allow you to keep a tidy build even on such a tight budget." The Corsair PSU mentioned in the above review has been superseded and the replacement model costs £5 more than the Thermaltake at Scan, here's a 2017 review. Apparently has a 7 yr warranty. Might be worth the extra fiver IDK? https://www.anandtech.com/show/12070/the-corsair-tx550m-80plus-gold-psu-review/5

It's hardly a milennial thing, just some members of the enthusiast community like it. I'm not one of them.

Dodge62

I've been building PCs on and off for over 20 years. In the early days power supplies usually came with the case, and the whole lot only cost £25. And that's when a 60GB hard drive cost £150. Never had one, to my knowledge, take out a motherboard or CPU. I've had a few graphics cards fail, which I suppose COULD have been due to the power supply, but it's not like the power supply went bang and suddenly the graphics card failed. I've certainly replaced quite a few failed power supplies, but in each case they either stopped working completely, or the computer became completely unstable due to low voltages, and worked fine once the PSU was replaced. Maybe I've just been really lucky.

ADirtyOldClown

Never really understood this millennial crap. Lighting up your room like a red light district or cheap takeaway - always wonderful! Well suppose it's good for those who enjoy not actually being on the computer and just staring at those pretty little lights inside of their cases.

plewis00

It’s a good basic start though, no 80 Plus = avoid but not vice versa. It’s tier 6 (fierce) https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/ Then again we have some Corsair VS series which were used in machines used for mining back in the day (couple of years back) and nothing broke or failed.

You'd be lucky to draw 250-300W from a Coffee Lake and GTX 10 series card...not saying there aren't use cases for 1200W, but think carefully before plowing so much of you budget into your PSU.

robodan918

Excellent PSUs Fantastic price (normally 220 and up) and good PSUs rarely go on sale Heat

CampGareth

Indeed. If this unit is 95% efficient at half load which is 600W it wastes 30W. If another unit is 90% efficient at full load of 600W it wastes 60W. At 15p per kwh and with 24/7 usage that's £40 saved per year with this beefier PSU. That's not worth it for your average user but if your machine is on 24/7 under high load this PSU would pay itself off within a few years. Warranty is 10 years, plenty of time to turn a profit.

snagzie

How much for a PSU????

Bruno.Harris

Yeah another thing to bear in mind is the efficiency curve, most efficient at half usage

Great value

Hootwo

Because what? Power saving?? The difference between Gold and Platinum is 2-3%, so I hope you are measuring the exact amount of water going into your kettle and turning off the stove to let meals cook on residual heat - those would save *way* more than a Platinum psu...

Hootwo

Got this exact model running dual overclocked Xeon E5s in a modded Supermicro motherboard - the psu has 2x cpu 8 pin connectors, which are essential for Supermicro and most other dual cpu boards. Runs quiet, cool, lovely. EVGA is becoming my go-to brand for psus ...

fubob11

The psu will only provide what is needed so there's no real concern energy wise, quality wise this is a failry top tier psu. it's a question of whether you're over paying for what you need.

1nsomniac

How energy efficient are these things? I mean does it only use what it needs or is it total overkill if put in a standard pc.

Canali44

I apologise in advance, but I just had to be inquisitive. What the hell are you using that setup to do?

Agharta

It's only the over-clocking of say an i9 and Titans that makes that even close as the rest is no big deal. The lowest fan speed is at the lowest power output and this will be zero RPM up to over 250W I think! The difference in efficiency at various medium to high output levels for a Platinum PSU is in the region of 2 to 3% at most The sweet spot for this may well be nearer a 50% load if similar to the non I version; see jonnyguru.com. 50% is also the sweet spot for all 80 Plus ratings - 80 Plus

Maplin have been updating their website (removing products as they go out of stock) but it is still worth checking in store. I managed to get a Corsair RMx 1000W Gold last weekend which was after the product page and stock finder for it had been taken off the site. And as corrected above the warranty is with the manufacturer, not Maplin. In my case a 10 year warranty with Corsair.

Cattle

Great news is that the 5 year warranty is with Corsair and not Maplin! This PSU is £57.99 on Amazon so it's also a real bargain at this price. Tier 3 are still "solid units", at least that's what it says in the original "PC master race PSU" guide.

Stars on fakespot have no bearing on the product. It's a review of how legitimate-seeming the reviews are. Anything can get 1 star if a bunch of spammers post "was good product" in the review section, even a genuinely good product. As a comparison I ran it over the Sony MDR-1000Xes, 4 of 5 stars for review legitimacy. Looking at the two sets of reviews, length of review matters as does posting non-stock photos of the product. If that's the basis of a legitimate review no wonder the PSUs all get bad ratings, who the heck posts a 10 page teardown and analysis on amazon?! It either works and that's all you mention or it doesn't. Anyway as for the product itself, seems like a good deal as most things in this price range don't come with anywhere near as much warranty time. I'd buy it myself but I'm looking for something to run 24/7 so efficiency does matter a little. In 24/7 usage saving 5W saves you £6.50 over a year.

danielbentham

Its a £30 power supply which is perfectly fine for most computers, if however your PC is say worth £500+ then yes a better quality power supply would be advisable . I have used this particular power supply in several cheap gaming builds using mostly 2nd hand parts and its not failed on one of them yet.

Scottc123

I wouldn't put this in my PC, and I wouldn't I put it in anything other than a standard disposable office PC.

You don't know what you are talking about. Try learning some basic physics/electronics. Nothing to do with "using voltage". Stick to giving advice on things you know about.

therealjohnpeat

To be clear - a 450W PSU and a 600W PSU in the same PC will use the same amount of power doing the same job. A "Gold" PSU will use less than a "Bronze" in some situations but the difference is tiny (you'd never repay the extra cost of the PSU so you have to be REALLY worried about wasting power as you'll be wasting money)

floppydesk

Not if your running a power hungry setup. Besides U NEVER EVER, run your PSU AT FULL LOAD !!!!!

delboyd

A PSU runs most efficiently at 50% load. My PC is around 400w full load (OC 4790k, OC 980ti, sound card, 3 HDD). Makes this the best choice. Anyone who gets this calibre of PSU is going to be building with substantial components, 250w GPUs etc.

zakkyb

This is the best deal for a PSU around £50 right now

Djrxx

power wise it may be over the top, but really you shouldn't scrimp on a psu.. Plenty of decent psu's in the £50 range, whatever your requirements, below that the saving just isnt worth it.. this is 60 odd percent more in price, seems a lot. But it sells elsewhere and until recently on amazon at nearly 300% of the price of one of those cheap psu's.. compared to anything at all on the market sub £100, this blows it out of the water. for a small increase you are getting a far far better psu than anything in that price range, 10 year warranty alone would be worth that, then add on the energy savings due to the platinum cert, and the fact this would cover nearly any future upgrades...

PS and LR, are not core hungry. I'd either look at the 2600 and a dedicated gfx card (photoshop does love gpus) or go for the 2400g and then upgrade next year (with the 2400g). The 1600 looks good too price wise .. I'd look at a low to midrange dedicated gpu with as much vram as possible (for ps & lr) Also the the 1700 maybe worth getting as that should sink to 200 shortly Depends on your budget

any VR good to run at least Full HD games yet? any idea? (cheeky) I have heard of Project Santa Cruz...maybe on market street I could invest some money,but not sure how to :{

EndlessWaves

I'm not an electrical engineer so I've no way of judging whether a flash is expected or not. From an outside perspective the different effects of the two failures could simply be due to different components failing. Where it mattered - not damaging anything else and failing cleanly instead of intermittently - it seems to have done it's job. For what it's worth I've owned both expensive and cheap power supplies. My current one is the Caseking/OcUK own brand version of Sirtec's SFX platform because the more recognised brands were taking the silly decision to equip their supposedly small form factor PSUs with cable braiding, which makes the cables less flexible and harder to get past the many obstacles in a tiny case. Said case cost me £170, so I wouldn't particularly call myself a cheapskate. I just don't buy into the whole 'buy it because the individual components are better' mentality. There have been many examples where such a mentality has developed and manufacturers have exploited it by over-speccing stuff past the point where it serves any function. Jewels in watches, overdrive systems on monitors, refresh rate on TVs and so on.

SpaceChip

I don't know much about VR, but as I understand it you need a decent gfx card (gpu) to power a VR set? Unless it runs off other hardware such as the PS4 version.

7fink7

do you recon peops could give up buying latest graphic cards if they would have virtual reality set? (skeptical) (pirate)

psycho_terror

it's not completely clear cut, but a good rule of thumb is that if a PSU can achieve higher efficiency, it's made with higher quality components. though it does depend on your usage, the efficiency gain of a gold or platinum certified PSU is almost definitely not worth it, but the quality it implies is. didn't actually see this linked anywhere, but this is the PSU Tier List that you'll hear mentioned in any PSU discussion.

Had the green one a while back. Clicking fan drove me mad. I had to open to replace. Could of just been mine though, but i seen quite a few posts when i googled. But thats the world i guess.

AngryCoffeeTable

each to their own, but a few years ago I had a client come to me with a faulty 'fresh' machine that he had owned for 6months built by one of the big UK etailers. It had a faulty CX750M. He contacted their RMA department and they sent him out a fresh factory sealed CX750M which also turned out to be faulty when I installed it for him. I offered to deal with the RMA service on his behalf but he didnt want to bother with the etailer so replaced the faulty power supply out of his own pocket with an EVGA SuperNova G1 650w which retailed for the same price as this current deal. The clients PC with the EVGA power supply is still going strong today although Its CPU is a few generations old. Googling the the CX750m at the time when i was seeking an alternative showed there were similar horror stories floating around so I just put it down to CWT doing a bad job rather than a retailer receiving a bad batch. At the same time, I have spoken to people who have had great success with the CX750M so for that reason I wont be voting on this deal. There are better power supplies that can be had for the same money which i would trust powering a high-end PC.

QwertyZzzz

Got this, soon will be 6 years, no problems so far. Great PSU.Super quiet and reliable +++

plewis00

Grey label CX750M was the only Corsair PSU I had to fail on me and it was the low-grade fan with a sleeve bearing that failed causing thermal shutdowns under moderate load. I would never buy this again... for not a lot more there are better EVGA Gold-rated models and a little more than that buys the vastly better RM series.

avoid budget psus because any possible problems will be invisible and could have very bad physical consequences, rather than just crashing. you want to a psu that's basically overcapacity for what you're doing.

The 1050/1050ti cards are ideal for just plugging into many cheap pre-builds because of the low power-draw, simple connection, cheap prices, and huge gains. You won't be proving much by successfully running it on a CX500 "500w" PSU. At least not unless it kicks the bucket shortly after. It's a good brand with a decent reputation selling a budget quality product. However, for you, with a 1050 Ti, your risk is low, and really what it comes down to. If you plan on doing anything intensive with well-performing hardware, then the majority of PSUs under £30 aren't just "budget", they're dangerous.

My power supply arrived today. Someone earlier in the thread described it as a lightweight supply. Believe me, it is anything but. First impressions are it is a quality build. The cables are plenty long enough and they provide a cable tie kit for management. I chose to avoid budget, sub-£30 power supplies. But, I could not justify a £80+ supply. First impressions are that this fits my needs perfectly. It really does look like a quality bit of kit. But, i haven't used it yet. As I said before, if it doesn't stand up to the demand, it will go back and I will learn a lesson. Based on what I have seen so far, it is pucker!

Having worked at a major PC component retailer, and seeing the amount of cheaper PSUs that got returned after going bang (even from big brand names). Believe me there's a reason they are cheaper.
