replacing my psu advice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

my 500w 80+bzonze power supply became noisy recently and im thinking of getting a crosair vs450w 80+ specially after i saw alot of good reviews about how silent it is , it is a downgrade in the power performance but i dont care coz im not thinking about upgrading anything for the mmnt i have an i5 7500/gtx 1060 3gb /12gb ram/ i used *outervision site check how much power needed and i go 380w result so it should be no effect on the pc performance right ?

a 380w system will run on a good 450w  It just won't be as efficient as say a 600w for that particular draw.  Something to note is that your system won't be drawing 380w constantly.  Check the PSU and cases section for the schticky on PSUs 


 With all the Trolls, Try Hards, Noobs and Weirdos around here you'd think i'd find SOMEWHERE to fit in!

Outervision is complete garbage. PSU wattage calculators are just garbage in general.

 

Amazon reviews aren't reviews. It's exactly the same reason why you wouldn't look at Amazon reviews to see if you should buy a GTX 770 over

a GTX 1070.

the other psu i had in mind is the MasterWatt 550 Watt but i saw a decent amout  of revireviews saying that it makes some coil whine  

I don't like the Master Watt too much, though it has some nice ideas.

My beefs with it:

a) removal of 2 Caps in 12V

b) Semi Fanless

c) only one PCIe Connector on the PSU - should have two.

according to my fav calculator, an i5-7500&gtx1060 combo consumes 247w under load (with 3 ram moduls& 3 fans, no overclocking)

 

a nice 450w should be enough. ... What about bitfenix formula gold 450? that's the cheapest one quality 450w unit around here.

even 300W would be enough, if they were available in good quality - they are not, so you're stuck with at least 400W, mostly 550W though.

 

Right now I'm playing Metro Exodus and my Powermeter shows something around 255W.

And I have a Ryzen 7-1700x...

Well, indeed. But a 450W leaves plenty of wiggle room - future upgrades. And most PSU-s are most effective around 50% load, efficiency does not degrade too much if the load is low.

 

To the OP: Location and budget would help a lot. I can only recommend models from those brands, which available in my country for reasonable prices (BW, BF, SS, FSP). 😊

im from tunisia and  i really want to get a be quiet psu i did actually order a pure power 700w silver sadly wasn't available the problem is that  there is not that much choice here and i really just want a decent  psu and most important a silent one so i'll  probably just order the crosair vs450

don't... it's a psu meant for a pre-built office pc replacement, not a gaming pc. inside the corsair linup you should at least get a cx/cxm

because it's made for a certain task (in this case basic use without gpu), not for some good gaming

 

that's why imo you should get something better than a cx(m), but it's your choice

i wanted to get the crosair coz it's a known brand and quiet ,  so u think  Thermaltake Smart RGB 500W will be better option than the  crosair vs550w  ?

lesson one about psu's: NEVER judge on brand, ever

 

but that psu isn't going to be that much better. look at the psu tier list down my signature, select at least a tier c

look for 550w bitfenix formula gold, they are like 63 euros in europe (better than any of those), maybe its same price in tunisia

I checked a webpage and this seems good for the money

 I would buy a tier 3 , like that corsair or that cm, But I dont trust that cxm because old versions are lower tier, so I would double check that psu.
