Thermaltake Smart Pro RGB Modular Power Supply, 750W

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am looking into getting the ThermaltakeSmart Pro RGB Modular Power Supply, 750W and wanted some advice on if it is any good or not or if I should look at something else. I am looking for a fully modular, at least 650w power supply for a decent price as I am on a tight budget. Thanks in advance.

Have a good day!

That will consume 350w max underload, you’d be fine with a 450w. 
 

What is your budget and country?

Ok thanks my budget is $130 CAD and I am in Canada. I am able to go over that but would really prefer not to. I was also wanting to go a little more than 450w to future proof myself but if it doesn't make sense to then I won't bother.

Yeah, a good quality 550w will be good for a 3900x w/ a 2080super. 
 

What’s the pricing on the Corsair RM550x?

That’s a bit over-budget, how much is the CoolerMaster MWE 650w Gold?

get this, it's a better unit than the TT one, and it's remarkably cheap https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/J2x2FT/rosewill-600w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-lepton-600


It is but human, to err, to buy a PSU, akin to dirt,

but fret not, young Padawan, for we will tell you, 

what will become, of that, which you have earned
