Suspicious Power Supply

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I am in the proccess of updating parts for my future PC since prices have gona up significantly and I needed to update my part list I have alreadly chosen most of them.

Ryzen 3 2200G

Gigabyte DS3H b450m

2x4GB DDR4 3000MHz RAM

and the SSD I put on my old laptop (yeah we are going full budget here)

 

For the power Supply I simply just wouldn't be able to fit reputable brands like Corsair, EVGA, Seasonic, etc so I started looking and found one manufacturer from my own country that makes these and this is what I found:
TL;DR: I need a professional opinion on this Brazilian PSU  or an opinion on this from someone who alreadly had it to see if it's reliable or if I'm buying a one use smoke machine.

Link to manufacturer's website:

AVOID... run as fast as you can AWAY from that.

PSU's are facing stupid pricing at the moment because of factory shutdowns & lack of supply... you'll need to save or wait a bit longer for prices to stabilise.


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

what is your budget for a psu? maybe someone could recommend a decent one in the price range if we know what it is.

 

edit: also, the other big reason psu's are so pricey atm, people buy as many as possible, make sure the market is dry, then resell them at whatever mark up they want, 150% 200% ect... covid brings out the worst in some people.

Why?

Because poor Brazil, he can get that crap for like 18USD, while CV450 costs 55$ and CX550 70$, so he rather get a firehazard and save up money for years again if it kills something or is aiming for insurance fraud.

$70 for a CX550 seems reasonable to me.  Even in Brazil, with power supplies, you get what you pay for.  It's easy to make a < $20 power supply if you don't care about how long it lasts and how much hardware it damages.  It takes a lot more work to make something that's not a bomb.  There really isn't much of an "in between".

ah yes, the 900mV ripple experience


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
