  1. 650W is enough. Don't get the G3 though. Look at the article linked in my bio for more info.
  2. In win case

    More suited for status update
  3. Own a RaidMax?

    Ive never had one... Neither have my friends. That's because ive talked them out of it because I don't want their house to burn down. Well how much have we answered that all lead to "Don't buy Raidmax" JUST BUY A GOOD PSU AND USE SHARPIE OR SOMETHING
  4. Own a RaidMax?

    No one here has the expensive tools to test PSUs, except for maybe @jonnyGURU and maybe one other. But from the reviews ive read, all they make is junk. Ancient, cheap, group regulated designs, some missing crucial protections.
  5. Would you buy TVs made by Apple?

    I'll put it to the same selecting standard as I do for other TVs. It's not special.
  6. Own a RaidMax?

    No stop trying to convince yourself they are ok, unless you want them to fry your computer and make your house go up in flames (I should try that and sue them)
  7. Intel core i5 8600 or 8600k ?

    Just go with the 8400 or 8700, others are not worth it. If you are willing to overclock don't even get the 8400, get the R5 2600.
  8. Replacing a 2011 Build

    I have an active XP era Semperon PC in use. (not main) PSU... should be upgraded. Cheap PSUs are becoming really good, and good PSUs are becoming really cheap. You can find a really nice PSU with 10 year warranties for ~$60-80
  9. Help Building My First Gaming PC

    MX500 SSD, get something like the SeaSonic Focus Plus Gold/EVGA G2 (not G3) or Corsair TXM/RMx
  10. The unit you want to upgrade to is worse than your existing unit, and your system will use at most 300W at load, you are fine.
  11. Own a RaidMax?

    And only 38A on the 12V rail to blowup your PSU just in case your system actually need 600W!
  12. 1st build in...15 years
