A computer is a necessity in the modern world, but PCs can't function properly without an efficient and reliable Power Supply Unit (PSU). Finding the right PSU is vital for anyone building their own PC or who wants to have room to expand their current system's capabilities. All of the most reputable global PSU brands and their current deals can be found at the dedicated HotUKDeals pages. Read more

Still a bargin :)

These deals are back on again. The 700W FSP is only £32 this time.

stamfordblue

I can recommend the FSP 700W PSU. Was lucky enough to grab it at £27 on a former Today Only deal. Not whisper quiet but it does the job well, and it's lowered my CPU temp by 8C :)

nick_sub

Forgot to mention they all come with a free port tester.

Computerman

very good spot the obvious downside is that isnt modular. but for that price it is definitely hot.

Nice, I was looking for an inexpensive replacement PSU for my parent's older computer which exploded this morning. £30 will do nicely and is even a slight upgrade from the 500W they were using. For anyone operating a computer built in the last couple of years I wouldn't recommend this PSU. I'd go for a 700W+ because newer machines (with all the things we run on them) tend to be more power hungry. It's safer to buy more wattage than you think you need too.

Dagk

I bought one. Does the job and is nice a quiet as my original PSU's fan was begining to make some suspect noises. Would recommend.

maddogb

spec seems good but i would fear with maplins mark-ups this is a scooby rather than a aston, so no ote from me either soz

wraithchild

I'd say that this is about the correct money for the PSU rather than being a hot-deal. (not voted)

Pepp77

To me this sounds like a mid range PSU - it only outputs a maximum of 30A across its "three" 12v rails (maximum watts across the 12v is 360 according to the specs on the link above - so 360w/12v = 30A), and with todays PCs the 12v Amperage is generally more important than the watts. As a comparison the corsair 400cx http://www.corsair.com/products/cx/default.aspx also produces 30A on its 12v rail. The other difference you will most likely find is the corsair can output a constant 400W and probably peaks at 450-500W, whereas this is likely to have a peak of 580W (you generally find higher end PSUmanufacturers rate their PSUs at their constant and lower end PSU manufacturers rate their PSUs at their peak. This is always a good little vid to show people about PSUs http://corsair.com/cinema/movie.aspx?id=622747

Acoustically it should be near silent up to about 350W according to http://www.anandtech.com/casecoolingpsus/showdoc.aspx?i=3231&p=10 which isn't likely to be exceeded except by systems with dual graphics cards under load (http://www.techreport.com/articles.x/16229/13).

Yep, some of us do, are you included? ;-) As you can see from djfluff it was coming up at £11,500 from the today only screen but it was still in stock in the normal part of the scan site at £50+. If it's a valid today only item at scan they don't limit the quantities, they sell it until the next offer or until their supply is exhausted. This was obviously an error by scan and was withdrawn form their today only offer when they realised the pricing error.

I bought one of these very cheaply last year, and I never got the front panel connected up. It's a very nicely made bit of scrap, really. I also got the twin PSUs, loads of fans etc.

ollie2001

I got this last year when it was about £12 or something. Absolute bargain if you know what you're buying! I got the whole lots, dual PSU's, fans, 100's of screws, 5 bay hot swap SCSI...really, you definatley couldn't make it for £12! £35 is a bit steep though considering it's age...nothing new will fit and as mentioned, power, reset etc buttons won't work on modern boards.

Abbadon

If you have a look at the Hexus forums you will see that the delivered spec varied quite a bit. Some got dual redundant PSUs and all fans populated, some got just what was listed. People had mixed success with this but some got everything working OK. Personally I agree, its too big for home and out of date for datacenters but it is CHEAP and is probably worth nearly the asking price as scrap metal alone . :whistling:

My god, Scan still have stock of this c**p? Save your hard-earned and avoid. They were only asking £11.74 though last year.

Doesn't state the amperage on the 5 volt or 12 volt rails. So nobody can really say how much power each rail can provide.

anyone out there got this, and have the psu spare to sell?

brain_stew

Really nice case and the PSU is beefy enough for the vast majority of single GPU setups. The case has great airflow, especially if you fit two 120mm fans in the front like I did (it has space for one but I sacrificed 3 of my 5.25" drive bays for the other by simply drilling wholes in the mesh), can't be beaten for the price. Hot. I'd recommend picking up a couple of Yate Loon fans, as thy're much quieter and efficient that the 1 standard 120mm fan provided.

guilbert53

EBuyer were doing this for £42.99 in around February this year (it was on HotUkDeals). I know because I bought two of them. Nice case and fairly quiet. Never had a problem with them. Note the PSU comes pre-fitted in the case. Still a farily good deal at this price.

I've had this PSU for 10 months and athough it worked fine with a single core processor, it spat its dummy out when I swapped to a quad core and wouldn't run my new gfx card. Taking into consideration my pc set up, I would say the claimed ratings are very very dubious (particulary the 30A on the 12v rail :?). Would like to get my hands on a multimeter just to see how wrong they are. For that reason voted cold, spend another £20 and get a branded PSU like Hiper or Corsair.

GDB2222

Don't forget that an energy-efficient psu is worth getting at today's electricity prices. Typically, this can save £5-10 of electricity a year (obviously depends on usage), so the extra cost is easily paid for in the lifetime of the PSU. Meanwhile, you have a better PSU, and you're saving the planet! ;-)

306maxi

Saw this today and thought of this thread..... it should be pointed out that it's very much true that as this PDF says that PSU's can cause your PC to be very unstable and cause crashes which Windows is invariably blamed for :) http://www.corsair.com/_appnotes/AN805_Why_a_high_quality_PSU_is_an_essential_purchase.pdf

ibiza

I have a Supermicro twin xeon based server running four threads and sitting quite happily on the (Supermicro) 430W PSU it came with. However, I am about to swap a RAID array into this one - but think its time to upgrade the PSU. In the past buying cheap PSUs and shoving in Papst fans has worked well - as invariably failure follows fan failure.

306maxi

Quite true. The thing is just like my father in law's PC when a PSU goes it can take all of your internal components with it so saving 20 pounds or whatever can cost you a few hundred pounds if your PSU goes. The other thing is that the better the PSU the more efficient it will be which will save you money on your power bills.
