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. 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.

FellowPazzini

Thanks people. Shall aim for the best I can afford with a minimum of tier 2.

pimpMe

And £42 from a store thats closing down, therefor no warranty, isnt cheaping out but is considered a bargain? Okaaay..

Josh_Graham

If you're slowly putting it together you'd be gutted if the system blew because of that old power supply, always try to get the best power supply you can it's simply not worth 'cheaping' out on

EVGA 600 W1, 80+ 600W Power Supply 100-W1-0600-K3 – £30.64 @ Amazon

This is an excellent price for a good brand of PSU. Lowest price since October 2015:
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.

Scottc123

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)

Agharta

It really depends on how long your PC is on for and what it's used for. Power savings are about cumulative savings so you want to save wherever you can so it's not one or the other.

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

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... HOT!

Going with the 2400g with build in graphics cant afford the gfx card atm maybe in the future also need more ram so money will likely go into that first. Excited with my first build so much choice out there its mind blowing appreciate the advice

taras

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

WessexUnderwater

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.

iamqwerty123

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. Personally I go for EVGA these days because of good warranty, my PSU came with a 10 year warranty.

Woodzta

Even a starving hamster could feed a 1050 Ti! 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.

ScotBoy

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!

Krytten

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.

Far better ripple suppression which results in more reliable overclocking, not to mention making the unit itself more reliable as the caps have to do less work.

I just retired my Coolermaster psu last year after 9 years of trouble free service and at the time it was powering a high end quad core 9550. Only had to change due to a GPU upgrade but they are decent budget power supplies in my opinion. Only cost £30 back in 2008. Got a modular Corsair with a 10 year warranty now which is silent but would recommend Coolermaster powers supplies if funds are limited.

I wouldn't. This EVGA is a SuperFlower SuperNOVA. Top tier OEM up there with Seasonic and Delta. That Corsair is some CWT made supply.

But aside from the EVGA badge (and if something goes wrong their customer service which is meant to be quite good), this GQ supply has nothing to do with your G3 Supernova. Yours is made by the top-notch SuperFlower. This is made by FSP. Who can be okay, but I would never compare them to SuperFlower or Seasonic.

Just a warning to anyone looking to potentially upgrade their PSU, make sure you use the cables that come with the new PSU! Modular power supplies don't have standard pinouts - I wasn't aware of this and blew up all of my hard drives and LED fans a few weeks ago by leaving in the cables that came with my previous Corsair power supply ;(

Great PSU at a great price - picked one of these up a few months ago for 170 odd

Ev0lution

Complete waste of money for most people. If you don't need 1000W (which 99.9% of you wont) there is no point paying £140 odd for a PSU when you can get something that will do the job just as well at half that cost.

vivi_ssj3

That's false. Doesn't matter if it's 500W or 1000W, it will only draw from the wall what it needs, +any extra because of its efficiency. A 1000W PSU doesn't draw 1000W from the wall all the time...
