Maybe I was just overthinking it sorry 😄

 

I kept looking and there was an NZXT SFX NP-S650M for £70 buy it now and it's an SFX-L psu.It's SFX-L and apparently has quite short cables which is good in my case. Would you go for it over the Silverstone 650W that I linked earlier? I haven't found any reviews on it. it's tier A on the tier list though

Alright thanks. Good to know 👍

Apparently the NZXT "H1 PSU" or NP-S650M is just a rebranded Seasonic SGX or something like that. So I'll say go for it

For my new ITX build I have to get an SFX/SFX-L psu (I would really prefer if it's the latter however I know how good fans have got these days and if I find a good deal then I'll go for that). Just yesterday I sold my RM850 for £90 and I'll be getting the money shortly. I don't want to spend more than that so I saw these options (some SFX-L, some SFX)

 

this one doesn't seem like a great deal - Silverstone SFX-L 500W Modular 80 Plus Gold Power Supply Unit - SST-SX500-LG | eBay

this ones not bad - Corsair SF600 SF Series Gold SFX Modular 600W Power Supply CP-9020105-UK (ATX) | eBay

this ones quite good(though it is SFX) - Silverstone SFX 650W Modular 80 Plus Gold Power Supply Unit - SST-SX650-G | eBay

 

As I kept looking there was one that caught my eye, it might've been out of how much I'd like to spend (I can spend more though) but it has 80+ titanium (not that important but due to energy bills here, could be for me) it's SFX-L (so a 120mm fan) and it's 800W (nearly as much as my previous RM850)

Silverstone SST-SX800-LTI 800W 80Plus Titanium SFX-L Fully Modular PSU 4710679810935 | eBay

 

Now there is a comparable option, the Lian Li SP850, I've heard good things about it and it's white so fits in my build (which is a white case) and it also has sleeved white cables (which won't matter too much to me since I might just put the mesh side panel on) but this is looking like a better option to the Silverstone and others above mostly because it's new. It is only SFX (so a 92mm fan) but that shouldn't be too loud right? It's also £125 including shipping while the listing for the 800W Silverstone is from northern Ireland so shipping might be either a bit of a hassle or expensive. Lian Li SP850 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular SFX Power Supply (SP850 White) - PCPartPicker

 

I did see one more listing with a thermaltake SFX psu @READ IN@ Thermaltake Toughpower SFX 850w PSU PCIe Gen 5 16pin 80+ Gold ATX 3.0 | eBay and it said in the description that 'You will need a 3pin kettle lead to use it'. Anyone know what that means?

 

As a final question, does anyone know what the best option will be? I want to spend as little as I can (the SF600 looks quite good for the money) and my dad said that he'd prefer under £90. Thanks for the help!

Damn. First of all I'm sorry you have to live in such a 3rd world country with regards to PC hardware. Looking at all these. i still think your best option is the Lian Li SP850. i wouldn't pay too much for a used PSU. The kettle guy meant a ATX power cable, the same you already got:

UK isn't normally too bad. US and germany are definitely better but it's mostly the itx market which is more over what I'm used to paying for for bigger options

I sold my old PSU (the ATX RM850) with the power cable but I'm quite sure I have another lying around, not sure if they're backwards compatible, probably. I probs won't go for that thermaltake one since the Silverstone or SP850 for the same price seem like better options. I really want to spend less though and at peak my system shouldn't draw more than 300W so I'm slightly leaning to the silverstone (cheaper 650W SX-G) or the SF600 (but I've seen a review from tomshardware saying that they're comparable and I think the silverstones a better option since it's cheaper)

 

What do you think? My dad's not really budging from £90 and that's understandable. I still haven't sold my atx b550 yet to get an itx one but I hope it'll go soon

Update: there has been an SP850 put on eBay for £50 and it's a bid for a week, someone's already bid £50 on it but I'll go higher than them. Do you think, if they don't take it higher than £90 or £100, that I should go for it? There's no buy it now option btw

That one was actually out of my budget a bit so I'm going for this

Do you know if there are any problems with it or anything I should know?
