What sub $70USD PSU should I get use (450-550w)?

I am, if you saw my earlier post, building a new computer. As always I turn to this glorious site created by our lord and savior Gaben and his disciple Linus+team, and I hope to find someone to help me with this.


My planned build:

  • Case = Coolermaster HAF 912 (mid tower atx, size psu is not issue)
  • Mobo = MSI B350 Tomahawk with Ryzen 5 1600 planned oc to 3.8-4.0 ghz at 1.4v
  • Graphics Card = RX 480 8gb by XFZ (iirc)
  • 512gb SSD (sata 3 by Manushin)

I am looking for something that is semi-modular (or full ofc) and from a reputable brand that is 80+ rated, bronze preferably.


This is the one part I can't seem to find one single answer for, so of course I turn to you bois.

That is much higher than I would like, what about corsair PSUs?


EDIT: Nvm corsair are like 5 dollars cheaper. Thanks mate.

Perfect, thanks Cyacus!

I second it, very good value (though I do have a 550G2 and its great)

Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious
