Honestly, whatever you get it will be fine for your build (single GPU, no matter how powerful). So if you can't get the TX again, just get the EVGA GQ but it will be too much. Others you could look for that are good but at a similar price are the Corsair RM or HX (better) or the EVGA G2/G3/GQ - there is a GQ 750W that is a bit less than this 1000W. Good luck (but just ask if you want to check - even if I don't reply in time, someone else will) (y)

Hi mate really appreciate the reply. I did have the TX ordered, long story short amazon cancelled a lot of my order due to fraud. So I missed some prime day deals, now the psu I was gonna get is 75 this is 25 more and has really good reviews and a lot of them. Not that I think I could go wrong with a Corsair but at least like you say this will hold value Well etc. Yeah massively overkill but seemed a good price I had amazon compensate me so wud rather put the money compensated for the products that have gone up and use it on something that’s still a deal . If nothing else it can be considered future proofing :)

plewis00

It would be overkill but it's not as inefficient as people would have you believe. If anything, if you ever sell it you'll probably retain more value in this than something else, but why not just get the TX series you were looking at the other day? It won't make more heat, no, I have one under pretty heavy load and it barely gets warm (700W continuous, 800W peak).

Fus3rr

Hi would this be massively overkill with just 1 gpu and not mining? Will it produce more heat? Will it run less efficiently with using no where near capacity ?

plewis00

Exactly. Also check the PSU tier list is usually how I operate: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/ Yes the OEM isn’t a vice-versa thing so Seasonic, FSP, Superflower make a range of PSUs but there are some OEMs who only make rubbish and to be avoided at all costs. Ironically of the few PSU failures I’ve had, the most recent was a Seasonic P860, one of the highest-rated Platinum units which shows they’re not infallible. On failure though it just stopped powering up, rather than a loud bang and sparks like cheap units.

Don’t worry people were getting super excited about a Thermaltake PSU with an RGB fan for £29.99 the other day, which goes to show most people don’t know what they’re looking at. Either that or don’t care about their PC longevity and possibly safety.

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.

greenday10111

Yeah true, considering this model is about £130-£150 new normally still a great deal at 66 quid.

mine came with EU plug...i suspect all of them will. but hey, its a £1 kettle lead :)

looks like its finished now, hope everyone received their PSU and using them happily.

Hopefully it comes with a UK plug too. I've seen a few unboxings with a EU plug and one of the amazon reviews said it came with a eu plug, possibly the reason for the returns

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).

Well in my scenario there is as it's a dedicated sim racing rig and uses 4 screens, 3 screens are rendering the cockpit and the 4th is telemetry, with a single 1080ti I can dip into less than 60fps in rain conditions but with 2 it allows me to stay above 60fps. If I was using VR which I don't as it makes me sick, then one 1080ti would be enough as VR does not utilise SLi. As you can see from this test 1080ti SLi that 1080ti in SLi at 4k Ultra settings gives a boost of 68% which is an extra 50fps, 4k in pixels is 8,294,400 pixels, as I am rendering 7680x1440 my pixel count is 11,059,200. So as you can see there are some applications that can utilise SLi including games where high resolution is used, people seem to think that 4k is the highest you can go, it isn't.

AngryCoffeeTable

Until game developers start making games on DirectX12 and pushing people on to Windows 10 to make use of it. SLi will continue to remain situational. The only realistic usuage scenario at this current time seems to be only for benchmarks which is why Nvidia have allowed triple and quad Sli setups to run with benchmarking software. There are always folding/crunching/mining and directcompute farms but those dont make use of SLi

Dave_Wills

I think there is a time and place for everything, in respect of Sli, if there is a realistic application, then fine, and i beleive there are..but gaming isn't one of them. Me,, i'm waiting on the next Nvidia cards........a test of patience i'm sure.

AngryCoffeeTable

He could be referencing the fact that AMD and Nvidia have kind of been moving away from SLi these last 2 years instead of really promoting it like they used to... multi-GPu configs have been a headache for both parties to get right especially when it came to triple or quad GPu setups and thats probably the soul reason why you cant enable triple or quad SLi in games anymore. Even 2GPu SLi occasionally has problems with optimisation and some games dont support it. Even some newer games these days get released without SLi support. Myself personally. Ive run Dual GPu configs for 15years if not longer -- my journey started off with the ATi 4870 Crossfire and ended with the GTX970Sli. Ive experienced the full gamut of issues along the way. some games crashed my PC when SLi/Crossfire was enabled. some games microstuttered like crazy, some other games just CTD'd when SLi/Crossfire was turned on. Though if youre running extreme setups. I can see where dual 1080Ti's would be the go to setup. though its not without its drawbacks.

This is a great PSU but it's obviously expensive because it can be, it's so niche. Last month I posted a deal for the EVGA 1000W GQ series for £88 which is much more reasonable if you need that kind of wattage. I think it's one of those 'it's expensive because it can be' things. Not worth saving £5 for losing the digital link, though I'd rather buy from Amazon any day. You can monitor the exact power consumption, reconfigure the rails and see all fans and temps from one easy control panel. I would definitely take the 'i' version wherever possible. Also worth mentioning that many Gold-rated supplies will actually get up to 92-94% efficiency (like the Corsair RM) but they don't quite meet the Platinum standards at a specific level that's all so they only get Gold-rated. I can only imagine these are used for mining or extreme machines with quad-GPUs for machine learning and workstation environments - even a super high-end gaming machine won't consume this much power. Anyway, a good power supply will outlast your PC, think of it as an investment - you can use it for 5-10 years in most cases.

jasee

Obviously if it's a server of some sort then it's necessary but for a domestic machine... My microservers are on 24/7 just because I think the disks last longer that way, maybe and the motherboards etc. But they use no-more than about 60 watts

CampGareth

Hey, sometimes it's worth keeping a beefy machine on 24/7, I mean compare £5k of electricity to your amazon bill for a 600W equivalent machine being on for a year! Let's say that's 4 * 18 core machine, that'd be a c5.18xlarge instance which costs $2200 a month!

wizk1

*Kilowatt year ;)

jasee

600 watts! That's over 5000 Kilowatts per year = about a thousand pounds a year (at 19 pence per kilowatt) You may be saving about fifty pounds but look what you are spending!

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

Maplin have been updating their website (removing products as they go out of stock) but it is still worth checking in store.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Best price ever as far as I can tell. Started looking after seeing the G2 deal and I’ve gone for this for longevity and peace of mind. The 750W G2 is £75 and the 750W G3 is £105.… Read more

Here's a review of the Psu from Tom's Hardware for anyone wanting more info before they buy. https://www.tomshardware.co.uk/evga-supernova-750-p2-platinum-psu,review-33575.html

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.

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

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... HOT!
