FSP RAIDER II 750W 80+ Silver

Its not the right PSU for that system.

You have the money for overpriced Intel K CPUs and nVidia High End GPU, you have the money for a PSU that's equal to your components.


SO for FSP, the lowest end product you should look at is Hydro G, NOT the GE. IIRC the Hydro X is also an option.

 

Another thing is the Warranty:
With used PSU you often/usually lose all warranty for the PSU. Some Companies offer a greatly reduced warranty. Something like 2-3 Years instead of 7-10 Years.

 

The lowest end unit I'd consider is a 550W Bitfenix Formula, be quiet Pure Power 10 or 11, also ~500W.

Hello, I would like to ask if FSP (FORTRON) psu's are any good ? I have an opportunity to buy FSP RAIDER II 750W 80+ Silver for 35€, (new costs around 90€) but it's without warranty. 

Please let me know, if you had any experience with this brand in past...

 

(This one...)

fsp is a oem that also sells their PSUs themselves, like seasonic or superflower

 

there's much better than the raider, but it lacks proper reviews, so there's not that much i can tell

FSP has good and crappy PSUs. Just like any other brand. What are you powering? Iirc, the Raider II is a low end DC-DC PSU, so you're likely better off getting a better ~€60 PSU that comes with a warranty.

Yeah, the Raider 2.

This is the Raider, wich is a cheaper version of the Aurum.

Its not the right PSU for that system.

You have the money for overpriced Intel K CPUs and nVidia High End GPU, you have the money for a PSU that's equal to your components.


SO for FSP, the lowest end product you should look at is Hydro G, NOT the GE. IIRC the Hydro X is also an option.

 

Another thing is the Warranty:
With used PSU you often/usually lose all warranty for the PSU. Some Companies offer a greatly reduced warranty. Something like 2-3 Years instead of 7-10 Years.

 

The lowest end unit I'd consider is a 550W Bitfenix Formula, be quiet Pure Power 10 or 11, also ~500W.
