This is also my first build, so sorry if I don't know much about PSU's.

would highly recommend something else around that price. the cx550 and cx450m are better, and only 30 bucks on newegg right now

Eeeh....

 

It might be cutting it close in terms of wattage. Overall that's a pretty high end build and a not-so-high-end PSU. EVGA does make good PSUs but you would probably want at least 550 watts and a higher efficiency rating. The thing you don't want to cheap out on would be the PSU.

I just avoid those with 3 year warranty and going for 5 instead (big names of course so the warranty actually works). it's an indication on how durable it is.

Why do you want to save on the PSU so much and get a low cost unit from EVGA that isn't even tested??

There is not much known about the BR and I wouldn't trust most EVGA PSU further than I can throw them...

 

In General I really hate living off a brand name like they do...

 

There are better options. In UK you have be quiet System Power 9 400W and up if you want it cheap. Or Xilence Performance A+, Xilence Performance X, be quiet Pure Power 10 and 11,  Bitfenix Formula.

 

Or if you want better units be quiet Straight Power 11, Bitfenix Whisper M, Cougar GX-F...

No, no and no.

 

a) EVGA does not make any PSU, they label them. And the ones they do are mediocre at best and don't bring anything interesting to the table. They are just "08/15"...

It just looks like Standard wares from the Manufacturer they order it from, without any noticable changes. Hell they don't even have standardized the Modular Connector Board inside the Company...

And they had some "mishaps" with some units that blow up when overloaded. Like the EVGA B3 series.

b) no, he would not. Without OC a 450W is plenty.

c) Efficiency Rating is irrelevant and has nothing to do with Quality. You can build high quality 80plus White units that are built like a tank and last forever and you can build really shitty 80plus Titanium units.

Warranty is not a relevant measure of quality at all!

be quiet Pure Power 10 only has 3 Years, 11 has 5 but they are essentially the same with the 11 having a bit higher efficiency...

 

In the end its just a high risk marketing calculation, because:
a) they calculate that most people either forget the Warranty or throw away their receit for the unit, wich is why they do it

b) Wear and Tear due to normal use is excluded by all Terms I've read so far.

c) Can nobody know how long a "known brand" will last. 10 Years ago, Tagan was a "big name" and they are gone. PC Power and Cooling is gone, OCZ is gone. All big names. BFG, Mushkin PSU. The List is long.

And especially GPU vendors can go under very fast!

 

 

EVGA for example is depending on what nVidia does. If they mess up for even one generation, EVGA is done as are most other exclusive manufacturers.

 

 Buttom Line:
The Warranty Lenth is totally overrated

The Warranty Quality is totally underrated.

 

Why don't care people about the quality, if you can call someone when you have a Problem and stuff like that??
Why does it matter if you have 10 Years but nobody cares if the access to the warranty is rather hard...

Those are not reviews. Those are clueless people trying to justify their purchase, and trhign to avoid getting buyer's remorse. 

It's loud, and it has issues with its protections. Not recommended.

those aren't actual reviews and you should not trust user reviews on stores as most people don't have the equipment nor the knowledge to do a proper review.
