Which power supply do you use /g/
My gaymen desktop has an EVGA 750B. (I forget why I chose this model, I've had it for a few years) My server has an EVGA 600B (I got it because a coupon code and a rebate meant I got a half-decent 600W unit for all of $25) I'm planning on using an old ITX system as a pfsense box, it'll get an Antec 620W, because I had it sitting around. I've previously used a Sparkle 550W unit (which I still have. It's loud as hell, but it's built like a tank and still works great) and a PCP&C 500-something model. Not a Silencer, the other vanilla one that they made in the early 2000s. For all their exalted reputation, that PSU was the only one I ever had die on me. In 2005 I came back to my college dorm to the smell of burned plastic. At least it didn't take anything with it, though.
I went to the trouble of typing all this just to say jesus fuck what I wouldn't give to have her try and smother me to death with her tits.
I used to build cheap HTPCs with cheap power supplies so I could watch movies and stuff in the living room.
Then one day that cheap power supply literally burst into flames and set the smoke detector off.
I buy nice power supplies now
Wish it was modular, but it's a Seasonic OEM so I'm happy with it
650 W Super Flower Leadex Gold. I suspect the computer doesn't even need 300 W but at least the PSU stays quiet.
Used to have a Corsair TX650 but it was easily the loudest thing in the case after I upgraded the system at some point. I think it was the shit-OEM version with bad efficiency and fan control or something.
Almost 2 years old and hasn't exploded yet!
>4 12V rails
>10 year warranty
Raidmax Cobra RX-600AE 600W
I Got this on auction for $90
Don't really like non modular but given ther wasn't much choice i just got it anyway better than having no pc for 4 months.
I've been running this for 3 years now, it's still not killed my system.
/g/ lied to me
After buying it I read a teardown that said they used shitty chinese capacitors...
Should I try to sell it and get something else? Running a 4790k slightly OC'd (4.6ghz) and an MSI 390.
If it's giving you a stable overclock and not overheating or anything it's probably fine, but if you see a good deal on a better model maybe think about upgrading, but it's probably not necessary again if your system is stable
19~28db so its quite as well it has 2X 6+2 PCIE connectors very rare for a budget band to have.
haven't see too many budget brands with 2X 6+2 PCIE power cables to be honest with you family.
Leftover from mining.
Stupidly overkill for my build but hey, can't complain.
Weird, it isn't supposed to be rotated like that.
I'm using corsair TX850 non-modular
This ol' brick.
It's definitely quiet, I can't hear it when idle and under heavy GPU load it's the GPU that's noisy, not the PSU.
Seasonic M12II EVO Masterrace reporting in.
this psu fucks
my company had a halloween party, and they raffled off stuff and had competitions
I got an 850 p2 and a pair of those gunnar glasses. some guy got an old showroom model rig with a GTX570 and a 1st gen i5, another guy got a BNIB x99 classified
Corsair CX 600 from 2010, still working. Powering AMD Phenom 955 X4 & GT 240.
Corsair CX 750 from 2012, still working. Powering i5-4690k & GTX 570.
EVGA Supernova 750 G2, 2015, still working. Powering 4790k & GTX 980 x2 (SLI)
EVGA Supernova 500 G2, 2015, still working. Powering 4690k & GTX 950.
Silverstone mini ITX 500, 2015, still working. Powering Xeon 1231v3.
If it weren't for the ITX form factor I would stick with EVGA for everything from here on out.
had it since 2008 or 2009 and it still works great. had a cooler master silent pro 700w during that time too. modular psus are great but a couple years back the silent pro started making a buzzing noise that got worse and worse so i swapped it out with the corsair.
