I am planning a small build and need a small power supply. Would this one do? I need at least 300W and under $50. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151090

What are you powering and in what chassis?

 

The SFX form-factor is generally dominated by the Corsair SF.

There is no case, because im putting it in two very small desks.

Do the second build but get a Ryzen 3 1200 instead. Better price/performance.

As for the PSU, I'd go for an SFX one, but if you must have the one you chose, it was a decent decision (probably the best one in that form factor).

For a 1050Ti that will probably be fine but I don't know if the lower-end Seasonic SF PSUs are good enough to handle OC of any of any of your hardware.

both lists are so under the power capacity it should be fine right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the lower-end Seasonics (like the Flex ATX Seasonic in the computer I'm currently typing on) primarily for server use?

Sincerely,

Yes, both are fine wattage-wise. Read below however. I'd still suggest a Corsair SF.

A quick Google shows a JG review from 2010. Probably wouldn't be a very good PSU choice for OP as it's old as heck.

Corsair SF

Here's how to make a non-exploding PSU:

A: Put it in a pressure vessel made to stand up to explosions.

B: Submerge it in oil and keep it there,

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

Corsair VS is group regulated, which IMO is unacceptable for any gaming computer.

Along with that, it has poor efficency, bad electrical performance, and poor build quality. You could get a CX550 for $50, and that would be SO much better.

Ah. Now I know. Thanks, I'm not very good on PSUs.

not really.

gecid had some Reviews of the SFX and possibly TFX unit. ANd Seasonic likes to use that shitty HY-510N Protection IC. So no, not a good choice.

 

But there aren't any decent quality TFX PSU on the Market anyway.

 

For SFX the choice is much much larger and thus better...

So if at all possible go for an SFX PSU.

And even those are way worse than ATX PSU because of size restrictons.

No, the HEC based VSs are all DC to DC (including the VS 400).

All of the (old) CWT VSs were group reg though.

Proof pls.

Because the cheapest PSU to my knowledge with (real) DC-DC is the Xilence Performance A+. And well...

It says that on corsair's site

Ye, but for both minor rails or just 3,3V?

Without internals I won't believe it's for +5V.


Because with that logic FSP Aurum would also be DC-DC because 3,3V is independently regulated...
