[Recommendation] PSU under 100$

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi Guys,

 

I'm currently building a new PC which will run a Ryzen 5 3600 + RX 580 8 GB + 16 GB DDR4 @ 3000Mhz and I'm having a hard time picking the correct PSU and I was wondering if you guys can help me out with some suggestions.

As the title says it must be under 100$ and I don't care if it's modular or not. I've read the PSU Tier list but it's a lot of information and confused me even more, for example I noticed that Segotep GP-G series is noted in gold which means is a good PSU but Seasonic S12III is not? Did I misunderstood that?

USD? CX550, TX550M or RM550x, though there is a worldwide PSU shortage at the moment so I don't guarantee you'll be able to find either of these.

I'd go for at least a B+ tier unit from the tier list for those parts, but a B should do as well.

Yes, Segotep GP-G is the same PSU as Enermax Platimax DF, just with a different brand and (probably) different fan.

 

Seasonic S12III is a weird cheap design outsorced from Rui Sheng Yuan. Not as bad as the S12II, but it's kinda meh.

Idk about $ pricing but in germany the seasonic s12III 650 W or the Corsair RM650 is a good deal for about 65 €.

Especially the Corsair unit with 10 years warranty.

So you believe Segotep GP750G to be a good option for the price? I also found CoolerMaster MASTERWATT 550W and Cooler Master MWE V2 Bronze 550 at a pretty decent price.

Why do you need 750W? Even if you upgrade to an RTX 2080 Ti you won't need it. Masterwatt and MWE V2 are good but I doubt any of them is better than the segotep apparently. Where are you from anyway?

That's the name of it, it's actually a 650W PSU

Located in Romania

Wait, oh. OK then. Just make sure Segotep support exists in Romania. Like in Malaysia they didn't even bother responding me with questions.

Ok, after some more research I managed to find a Corsair TX550M, takes longer to deliver being at the supplier and not at the online shop itself.

Would 550W 43A on a single 12V rail be enough for that r5 3600 and rx 580 8 GB? I don't plan doing any OC

That's plenty for your system. And your PSU's choice is decent so i think you're good, even if you plan to upgrade to say a 2070 super, you won't need to swap your PSU.

Did a bit of research for TX550M and apparently it can get louder than usual PSU's, is that correct? I do believe that can cause some discomfort for me :(

It's not that it's loud, but it isn't quiet either.

As you see, RPMs even at low load are quite high (that's 40°C ambient test tho, it would be lower under normal ambient), and it reaches 25dBa under ~300W load while other high-end PSUs barely reach that level at full load. But we don't know how Segotep performs noise wise and you don't have much other choices apparently.


Tag or quote me so i see your reply

It's definitely fine, about as loud as my GPU

 

@AndrewR. You wouldn't be able to hear it unless you are building a silent PC. You would hear your RX 580 fans more than the PSU fan.

There are a few other options like SilentiumPC, a few 80+ Bronze Seasonic, FSP, Cooler Master, Super Flower, Thermaltake. Nzxt is rare here, as most of their products.

 

Apparently Segotep is dead silent even in full load, I've asked around in a local group

 

So frustrating getting a PSU :)) so many options
