Replacing Chinese PSU with Corsair unit.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys! I had my PC for around 2 years already and I really hate the sound, which the PSU makes (It's a no-name brand chinese 450W-ish unit) and I recently saved up a bit of money to replace it. Now, in my region, PSUs are generally rare and if you get lucky and find a good one, it's overpriced, but I found a Corsair P5-550 for 20ish USD and I'm wondering if it's worth buying. Currently, I have a 3570 and a 1050 in my rig, but I'm planning to get a 570, so should I pair it with this? Corsair is a good brand and spec sheet looks good, but I couldn't find any reviews on it so that's why I came here.

The link to the PSU:

@Kanna I would normally get a CX, but it costs around 3.5x the P5 and I would like not to pay that much, for a system I'm soon going to sell.

You could always reuse the CX in your next system

Then why spend money on buying a new PSU to get rid of the noise if you are going to turn around and sell it?

Yeah I kinda figured it out just now, when I noticed that there was no branding on the pics and the fan appeared to be RGB.

Also just consult the PSU list if you are unsure of the quality of a unit.

The noise is driving me crazy and I want to sell it at new year season, since sales go up at that time. Also I couple of my friends have mentioned that it's way to loud and I think it might fend off potential buyers.

I couldn't find it there.

Definite safe bet then not to get that one as I think you mentioned you figured out already that it's some type of knock off. Also just looking at the PSU it had zero markings as to show anything to do with Corsair. Best to go to reputable sites that show legitimate pictures and specs of the PSU.

That is NOT a Corsair power supply. That is a fake/scam. @Corsair Nick@jonnyGURU 

LOL! Check out this "Master Cooler" https://bprice.ge/zar59

 

Don't buy anything from that website. They're all fakes.
