Advice on a PSU Gigabyte B700H/Bequiet System Power 9

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

 

I've been looking into replacing my PSU as a matter of necessity, my old one died a couple of month back and I had to use a spare XFX Pro 450W to get things up and running. While it's doing the job so far I don't feel comfortable running it for much longer, so now I've a little cash to spare I figured I'd look into replacing it. Hold in mind my budget is extremely tight at the moment, the old PSU died when I'd just forked out to redecorate, and I've since had to fork out for a new cooker unexpectedly, so my finances are lower leading up to the Christmas period than they normally would be. I have £50-55 to spend (I'm in the UK) but I'd really rather not go over that if I can get away with it.

 

My system is as follows:

 

I5 3570K 

16GB of RAM

AMD RX 580 8GB

1 SSD + 1 HDD

2*120mm fans and 2*140mm

 

I've been looking at the following supply for £50 but the information I can find on it is pretty limited par a Russian (I think it's Russian) review that speaks well of it:

Review: https://ru.gecid.com/power/gigabyte_gp-b700h/

 

I've also been looking at this for the same price, but have struggled to find information regarding it:

 

https://www.bequiet.com/en/powersupply/1693

 

I'm leaning toward the Gigabyte B700H as it offers a five year warranty, and having dealt with Gigabyte in the past found their UK customer service to be spot on. 

 

Anyone able to offer some better options in the price range, or have any experience they'd be willing to share on the models I've listed? 

 

Thanks in advance!

you're shooting for a very high wattage, vastly more than you need.

This would be a suitable choice


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

I've plans to move to a Ryzen platform with a higher end GPU next year (around March), and was hoping to be able to carry the PSU over if possible. That said my finances will be in better order by then so buying a new PSU alongside the other stuff isn't out of the question really.

 

Will the RX580 really be fine with a 400W PSU?

make sure you quote us so we see your responses

 

400 watts can power a Ryzen 5 3600 and an RX 580 with ease. If you prefer to go for something like an RX 5700:

I've been leaning towards getting a 3600 and a 5700XT graphics card.

 

It's good to know the System Power is recommended, I was a little unsure of it as I really couldn't find any information. Considering I'd end up paying more or less the same for the B700H or the System Power 9 600 as the System Power 9 500w, would you recommend I just go for the higher wattage or is there no need? PCPartpicker UK is a little limited as it doesn't show a number of UK stores, but I can get both of the aforementioned PSU's for £50-51 with free shipping. Leaning toward the be Quiet! stuff now though thanks to your input.

 

Thanks for taking the time to help.

Why not continue using the XFX Pro?  If the System 9 400w will do the job, so would the XFX.  Just save your money and roll with it until the finances improve.

The XFX 450 Pro is a PSU I salvaged from a heavily used and abused build I made for my brother back in 2013-2014 or so, I'm not entirely comfortable using it due to its age.

 

I'll probably end up picking up the System Power 9 600w, it costs exactly the same as the 500w in the UK so I might as well take the extra headroom. I'd prefer a slightly better warranty, but I suppose you can't have it all.

Final bump!

 

Alright guys, I'll be buying a be Quiet! System Power 9 600w for £45 later today. I just figured I'd check in here one final time to see if anyone else felt like putting their two cents in? Anything I'm missing or should consider over the System Power 9 for that price? If not thanks for all the help guys, I'll feel a lot more comfortable with the new PSU in my machine.

 

Edit: I could also get a Cooler Master MasterWatt 550W for a little bit more, seems to be in the same place on the tier list.
