Bestec Power Supplies

Go to solution Solved by EthanCGamer,

I've helped a family friend with their computers before, I replaced two PSUs made by Bestec in one year, would not recommend. Also, 300W is a little slim for a PSU, I'd get a 450 Watt to be safe, PSUs like Bestec tend to slowly deliver less and less of their rated power over time.

PSUs are ticking time bombs, the fuse length depends on how much you pay and how good the unit is

Are these power supplies suitable for a modern build that fits in the realm of 300W?

Depends on the model/make.

 

 Bestec is like FSP/Delta and other manufacturers, there are so many different designs...
