White power supply

I'm not Linus, but I am still gonna answer since this is posted on a public forum.

 

For most/all PC builds this PSU will not be a good fit. Not because brand.. Or rating.. Or wattage.. But just general quality is not suited for most PC builds:

If you want any recommendations, be sure to post the PC builds you need to power with this PSU and the location you're buying from.

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Linus quite simply does not have the time to respond anytime someone posts on these forums.  He is known to lurk, and will post when asked about some LTT matters if needed (like if Floatplane is having issues or other things that only he can tell us), but what you do have access to are the posters here who do follow this stuff.

with 'fit' I meant "it's not a good power supply in combination with most sorts of PC systems". Not physically fit or whatever.

Again, if you want specific recommendations, please provide some more context (mainly your PC specs).

Never cheap out on your powersupply. Make sure to buy something like an EVGA 500 BR, as it is higher quality and only $5 more.

Hey can you send me the link

That statement ignores the actual higher quality Corsair CX450M that I linked above.  Not to mention after MiR it's cheaper ($45) than that unit.  The BR does not have as conclusive test results and I would not call it "high quality".  The Corsair I put far more trust in based on the well-vetted CXM platform.
