PSU Prices Going Up?

Recommended Posts

Yea, I was thinking about cable extension to get rid of the ketchup and mustard. Also planning on getting the Thermaltake Versa H18 Temper Glass with RGB fans.

Saved money not having to get extensions since there all black.

 

Those are nice cases clean and simple.

The B1 is group regulated, so it's not suited for modern systems. It also has a lot more ripple. It's louder than the CX550, and it uses a sleeve bearing fan. And it's more likely to have coil whine with higher end GPUs, due to the design of the PSU. 

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help

Hey if it fits your needs so be it. My PC is on 24/7 365, hosting Plex, I run Windows Server VM, Android VM, Transcoding video everyday. Gaming, I let the machine mine when Im not using it just for fun. Im not even really done with it really. I got plans for another 8TB drive, a Monoblock for that covers the CPU and VRM's, been thinking of stepping up from the rtx 2070 to rtx 2080 just got to wait for the right deal to come alone. I was super lucky. I got the EVGA RTX 2070 XC Gaming with EK Vector Block and EK backplate Used for $460 total and the card still covered under 2 1/2 years of warranty yet.

 

I just swapped out the black ll120 1500rpms that came with the case for white ll120 2200rpms to get more air though the radiator in the front and I got plans to add another 240mm rad in the top. Also wanting another 16GB kit of memory right now I got about 4GB of free ram when I run the VM's. So some extra would be nice.

I was looking at 500W and 80+ Bronze, for example the EVGA 500B, but the prices have gone up a lot recently.

 

Mostly just EVGA prices going up.  The boss found out they were losing money.

@Charmander Just so you know the G.Skill Aegis 3000mhz 16GB kit is a much better deal than buying two separate 8 GB modules. $110 for 2x8GB separate modules and only $88 for a 16GB 3000mhz kit on Amazon. Plus you could have some issues using two separate sticks as they could have compatibility issues even if they're the same manufacturer, size, and speed. It's always best to buy an actual kit because they are tested by the manufacturer to be 100% compatible and work together as best as possible.

I already have those parts, buying the cx550 today.

So they stop selling PSU at a cost or loss??

Sales was dictating sell price. Now everything needs CFOs approval.

Seasonic raised their MSRPs back in December due to the US-China trade war. Between $10-$20 raise depending on the unit.

Not entirely sure how that will affect prices if OP is in Canada though.

Depends on how the product gets into Canada.  If it ships from the US to Canada, it gets hit with a tariff.  If the account is big enough and buys enough to order by the container, they won't be impacted because the container will land directly into Canada.

 

For someone like Corsair or Cooler Master, it's easy to fill a container because you mix cases with coolers with power supplies, etc.  Fills up quick.  If you're Seasonic, and you only do power supplies, that's A LOT of power supplies.  So they probably ship via US into Canada.
