  1. The Asus ROG Thor is based on the Seasonic Prime Ultra Platinum platform, while the Strix is Focus GX platform
  2. You would be quite surprised then. There have been few occasion in the past an individual would disregard any valuable feedback and went with a product that they ended up regretting. Two of them was someone who blew $2000+ on a laptop that was not suited for their needs, where they end up selling at a major lost a few months later. Let's not forget there are people who made a purchase, asked whether or not their purchase was good, and ended up yelling at people because it wasn't the answer they had wanted... I would have thought that me being able to identify the manufacturer / pla
  3. Hmm, I was just replying to your not understanding what he meant by model>brand, which the main point was : "Most company have a wide range of products targeted at different segments, at different price point, and varying quality." That knowledge of an unit's quality isn't something you going to get simply by looking at the manufacturer's website. You need to either have prior knowledge or have to do research (which I did imply that there had been reported issues with even Seasonic PSUs in the past - which may or may not had been fix). Even if they do research, it doesn't mean much if they
  4. Most company have a wide range of products targeted at different segments, at different price point, and varying quality. Making a blanket statement like "get a seasonic" without looking at his entire options may end up causing the person who you are helping to get a budget line up from Seasonic, when they could have gotten a high-end option from another company. That's why it is best to recommend a specific model. Also, depending on the region, prices can greatly differ, where certain brands are price much higher than other competitors. There was this one time I was able to recommend a Super
  5. Pricing and availability can differ depending on the region. What may seem like a bad deal for me may be an excellent deal for you. The only reason why I picked that one is because the non-modular CX450 only has one 6+2 pin connector but looking at the price again, you are right. That PSU seem to be rather expensive. You could get the RM550x for that price which is a superior high-end unit: https://www.olx.ba/artikal/35310282/corsair-550w-rmx-series-rm550x-atx-140mm/ A more affordable option with two PEG connector for your GPU could be the Seasonic S12III 550w: https://www.olx.ba/a
  6. Don't worry. I've navigated through sites that were in Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, etc. While it being in a foreign language does make it somewhat difficult, the general website layout doesn't change too much. Anyways, a quality 450w (which your Powerline VP-430 is not) is capable of powering a system with an FX6300 and GTX9800+. I'm assuming you are on a tight budget if you are getting a 12 year old card, so is the Corsair CX450M is in your price range @ 162 BAM? https://www.olx.ba/artikal/37350800/corsair-cx-series-cx450m-450w/
  7. It's based on an archaic design where system power draw were more drawn from the 5V rail as opposed to 12V like modern day system. This is evident by the presence of the -5V rail which was removed from ATX specification in 2003/4. To provide you a recommendation, a budget and links to site you are able to buy from would be helpful.
  8. Phanteks AMP 550w (buy directly from Newegg - not Sunton): https://www.newegg.com/phanteks-amp-series-ph-p550g-us01-550w/p/N82E16817987008?Item=N82E16817987008 Fractal Design Ion+ 560P: https://www.newegg.com/fractal-design-ion-fd-psu-ionp-560p-bk-560w/p/N82E16817580021
  9. In a multi-PSU setup, the supplementary PSU are typically put in a severe crossload scenario (high 12V load and no load on the minor rails), where the voltage regulation can behave erractically. Because of that, you simply don't want to grab multiples of random 500w PSUs. You want to look for a power supply that's independently regulated via dual mag amp or uses DC-DC for the minor rails, which a lot of your budget options starts at the ~$60 price point. Anyways, you could simply buy a modular supply, whose modular board made the 6+2 pin PEG connector and 4+4 CPU connector intercha
  10. Something like the Corsair CX450 or BeQuiet PurePower 11 400w would be plenty
  11. Try it out before spending your money on something. You got an excellent high-end PSU.
  12. That depends on the PSU. Some PSUs can get louder if you were to get a higher wattage unit, because they will generate more heat at full load, requiring a more powerful fan, and thus have a higher startup voltage where the fan will spin up at a higher RPM at low loads. A good example of this is the EVGA Supernova 550 G3 and 850 G3. Interestingly enough, going with a higher wattage unit didn't change when the PSU was in passive mode (fanless) @ 30C but when it spun up, the 550w unit not only stayed ~10dBA quieter, it was quieter at almost its ENTIRE load range than the 850w. If low
  13. The M12II-B Evo 380/420/520/620 are based on an old double forward, group-regulated design and lack some protection set, while the S12III is based on a LLC + dual mag amp design which is better suited for modern day system. It would be dumb of Seasonic to degrade when going from S12II / M12II-B to S12III.
  14. What do you mean "whenever I removed my case"? Moved? If your PC shuts off and you have to unplug and plug it back in in order to turned it back on, that would mean a protection in the PSU is detecting a problem and cutting power off to your system. The slight movement may have cause something to short out
