gotta agree the EZCool is a piece o junk only use for a very low power system i got a 550w one with a case (luckily i liked the case and the deal was only £29) the FSP i also got on offer from scan glad to say its great!!!:-D ps bloomin hell its £70 on scan atm


I wouldn't put a NorthQ in my system :) - See ]HERE


Even though FSP make quality PSUs, don't think they're quite worth £70 tbh. ~£50 would be fairer. Generic PSUs can be OK for low-end components, & probably not very good for the environment! I'd imagine many readymade PSUs on eBay will probably have cheapo generic-type ones. Have you noticed all of them say this & that is awesome, but many don't specify the PSU make+model in the description?


From the reviews I've read, NorthQs seem to be OK (good for the 'high-end' ones), but a little overpriced imho. Would only consider them if there was a very good offer for one of their better ones though.


Definitely worth waiting for! That would be a great saving :thumbsup: The last power supply I bought, was one of those generic Gold coloured 500W ones with 2 fans off Ebuyer for about £12 a while back. Been going fine now for over 3 years.Must have been lucky to get a good 'un. :)

Thanks for that posting MikeT. Just what I needed and the free P&P clinched it. Postie brought it this morning so their logistics work very well even if their website account/order is really rather poorly designed and unfriendly, and the status confusing, and despatch email sent 4 hours after it had been picked/marked as sent etc etc - ie process not very friendly, but results quite satisfactory enough though, especially for free P&P! The PSU has a nice positive click when rotating the voltage selector. Checking the 4.5V with my Lidl voltmeter showed 4.65V ie within 3% which I think is pretty good (at zero load anyway).


Unexpired thansk flipd. I bought one of these from Maplin, its arrived and does the job. I think the extra cost over the Argos one is justified in that this is switch mode so the output voltage is constant at set voltage.


offer close date extended from June to 08 July. maybe admin can unexpire the current expired status? compare to similar deal from ]Argos.

I think Aldi may have got the discription of this item wrong. I think its an Electric Hook Up Lead for use in tents, and it connects to a campsites 240 Volt supply. These EHU leads are always around this price in camping shops. It is NOT an inverter, otherwise it would show the maximun wattage that the device is capable of. You definitely could not run high power electrical items such as kettles, hair driers etc off your car battery, it would flatten the battery in minutes.


You run this unit direct from mains hook up on camping sites. Not from your car.discription of item must be wrong.


Hmmm, not sure exactly what this is from the details given, but I'd not want to run anything like a kettle (typically 2 - 3 kw) or a hairdryer (again typically 2 - 3 kw) through a connection to my car's 12v socket, both because of the current loads (a 13amp home appliance becomes a 260amp appliance running from 12V!) and because I'd like my car's battery to be able to start the car afterwards. If this is essentially an invertor with an extension lead and and RCD then I would expect it to be useful only for low power accessories like phone chargers, maybe a low power TV. Even then you really need a leisure battery or to leave the car engine running if you don't want a flat battery. If I've got the wrong end of the stick about what the product actually is then sorry, but cold from me.


Corsair VX 450W PSU, 80 PLUS Certified, Very Quiet, £39.94 delivered at Scan

A good price for a quality power supply which is efficient and quiet. It has a 33A 12V rail.

offers expired now


You should have been dealing with the retailer not the manufacturer as was within the first 12 months. I have not had to return anyhting to them but I would always so via the retailer


Sadly this was my experience, it took 3 weeks because of the time delay, they did offer for me to send it to the Netherlands but the cost to return was only £5 or so less than the cost to return it to the states... I cant remember the exact cost but they wanted it sent with tracking and I think the cost was around £45 (non-refundable)... was not impressed... I really think Corsair stuff is good just would never buy something bulky or heavy because of their returns location/policy.


If that's their normal service then that's poor.


I had a 620 which failed after 11 months contacted Corsair who are only based in the US, they wanted me to pay postage to return the item to the US, this was very expensive and they would not budge it took 3 weeks for them to finally supply me with their account number to UPS... be warned great unit when working but support is not very hot... Their RAM on the other hand is top notch and wont cost a bomb to return should it go wrong...

EV 4-in-1 Black/Silver Combo PC Case/PSU/Keyboard/Mouse Pack £23.97

Excellent Value Bundle Pack from Ebuyer!!! Includes: Black Mid Tower Case 350W PSU - 20+4pin Power Wired Multimedia Keyboard Wired Optical Mouse

Received mine, its good quality, not worth £30 like, but its alright, I used my ledger balance so didnt feel like I spent any money on it!


That depends, if the PC manufacturer wants to build a low quality, low price system then he will spend as little as possible. That doesn't mean its good idea to do the same.


not as good as it looks really, delivered it would cost £29.46 But I do need one so Im going to buy one anyway as I have some money in my ledger that I need to use up. So thanks.


How much do you think the keyboard, mouse,case and psu used by pc manufacturers costs then?


Postage £5.49, the speakers in the picture aren't included and I suspect that the PSU is as stable as a rowing boat in a storm.

Scan have this FSP one on the Today Only deals at £35.19 Been said on here that it drops to £28, so I'm waiting to nab it at that price.


If anyone went for this, could they be kind enough to let me know if it has floppy-drive type connectors & how many? Thanks. P.S. PM me if with the answer if you're ashamed to say that you actually bought one :p Edit: OK, don't worry I found it ]here.


The second one of those you posted: Seasonic S12 II 430W PSU - 12cm Fan 80Plus Efficiency is just under £45. It's plenty powerful enough to run pretty much any system, plus it's very quiet in operation. So, imho it's well worth the £20 extra on top of the psu originally posted here. You'll get your £20 back in running costs over a couple of years, and in the meantime you'll enjoy a quieter, more stable PC. Besides that, at the end of 2 years this PSU will still have bags of life left in it. I am not sure about the one originally posted, but it's less likely.

This power supply doesn't seem to have the "80plus" mark on it (meaning thats its at least 80% efficient). This would use more electricity to run the same spec as an "80plus" marked one. Also it cheaper because they have used lower quality components, meaning that it will be slightly noiser and may not be as stable. basically, if you need a 1Kw power supply, then you have an expensive computer, and you will buy a quality power supply. If you dont then something like this will be perfect for you and it will be cheaper (and it will give out the power it states almost allday)


Why don't you just put your tumble dryer on half heat for an hour lol seriously though does having a higher max wattage PSU use the same amount of energy as a 500 watt PSU using the same spec computer, is it more energy efficient or less energy efficient?


I've added a price and retailer name to the thread title. Thanks.

This is another recurring offer - and sometimes has been 30 quid. The 300W version is sometimes 20 quid on the same offer.


lol askin for trouble there but yeah they are always dropping the price on these every 2 months


Exactly, use split charge.


If you couple this with a car battery charger you can charge your car battery from your car battery.


These were £29.99 in maplin the month before last ;-) Last month they increased the price to £69.99 It appears maplin could be playing the Woolworths trick of artificially inflating prices so that they can claim a huge reduction at a later date By the way, as the 600W inverter does not come with a cigar plug (like the 300w and 150w versions do) I'm not sure how exactly you use this "on the move". It needs to be connected directly to the battery via crocodile clips. Not many cars have access to the battery from inside the vehicle - the only one that springs to my mind is an old mini traveller where the battery is located under the rear seat.

I had use to have the Hiper Type-R version when I was new to PSU and it gave out bad odor smell. Not a good brand when your paying for this kind of price. The ones manufactured by FSP Group are alot better, OCZ use them re-branded as OCZ of course on their high end models.

OP does have a point, if you need something more powerfull than 600W you are going to be spending £1000 - £2000+ for a PC, which for most people is way too much. So chances are you've got so much money you are going to wipe your a55 with it! Plus if you spend that much money on a PC how much do you have to use it to get your moneys worth? You probably have to play the latest high end games 24/7! I have a AMD 4600+, 3GB RAM (800Mhz), 2x Sata drives, 256mb AGP (nothing special), but I have a 380W - v. good quality PSU and my PC has been running fine for about a year. Note that the original poster said BUDGET! A CPU takes about 100W (max!), so theres plenty left for other components. This is for more powerful PC's fo those not on a buget.


Sorry, but I think the Colours IT is as 'bad' (if not worse) than the iCute! I may consider using it for a budget system with a low-mid range single-core CPU, but no way on a quad-core (admittedly not knowing anything about the power requirements of a Phenom, but they're not cheap to take a risk on!). For a matter of £20-30, it's simply not worth it. If you change your mind about the mATX case consider this Coolermaster case for £43 (excl del) which comes with a capable PSU - ]Coolermaster Elite 330 with CM eXtreme Power 460W PSU (its mATX ]brother here - cannot find the PSU to buy on its own, but you may fare better). P.S. Connectors for the FSP 700 are: 1x 24pin 1x 4pin 12v 2x PCI-E 4x SATA 4x Molex 2x Floppy


Thanks guys. It's just that a lot of maplins cases come with i-Cute PSUs and I've never had a problem with them. I will be running an AMD Phenom on a Gigabyte 780G M-Atx board, and am not sure whether to stick to my Matx case or not. What are your opinions on the Matx PSU:


true, getting modular while trading quality and possibly performance isn't worth it.


my-planet, personally I wouldn't touch that brand or PSU, when another much better quality brand & PSU can be had for around the same money (not modular admittedly) - a ]700W FSP, which features regularly at ]Scan/todayonly for ~£40 delivered (to get free delivery ] It's not on offer at the moment but check the Todayonly link above tomorrow afternoon. Found a ]review of the same/similar(?) FSP PSU, which mentions the connectors, but to be sure I've queried Scan about them (& asked someone on another forum too).

This is very old stock and not really limited edition just discontinued cases found i a warehouse some time ago. These cases are limited on cooling due to not having any front air intake, and limited to 80mm fans one on the top one at the rear. The case is extremely well built and you wont find anything to match the quality in todays cases. A great piece of history to grab, but not so good for todays high spec systems. Retail price when they were first released was nearer £200


personally i think the stacker from ebuyer looks better and is ony £10 more


SALE OFFER was £109.99 ex vat Now £59.99 (£70.49 inc VAT) This deserves a bit of heat! Coolermaster cases are at the high end of the range. These are usually bought by enthusiasts who will spend thousands on their machine so it is a good deal. Much better quality than a standard case.


that is one ugly looking case! :?


Is £70 cheap? I'd never pay that for a case without a psu personally
