        best 450w/500w psu?

        hello,

        going to build a pc for a friend, he not tech enthusiast so no need to worry about new releases for ryzen 4k, rtx 30 series etc. currently parts already shipping so no point telling me wait also.

        anyway, currently looking at psu which i will buy locally, most likely from sls. the main parts for the build are the ryzen 5 2600 and a gtx 1660 super, so in the range of 450-500w. now narrowed down to 2 options:
        1) cooler master mwe 450w 80+ ~$55
        2) super flower silver eco 500w ~$85
        google already, neither has many reviews. but not sure if these are the best options. budget also quite tight, if get the cm psu then zhun zhun use all the budget but if go super flower will overrun (but can absorb to an extent). so does anyone have any opinions/anecdotes with these psus, or have other recommendations?

        One thing mentioned time and time again - do not cheap out on the PSU. If you do you could end up with major issues with burnt out components (Motherboard, RAM and even GPU) when it goes wrong. If the PSU is decent and there is a surge at most it should blow the PSU and nothing behind it!

        I hear that Super Flower is a good brand but have not had any direct experience. Cooler Master on the other hand, has some really crap cheap PSU's!

        dont think these series have a 500w option, and the lowest power is 550w, which means they are out of my budget. i do know that they are reputable brands and series.

        are u referring to the hyper k series, or do u have another series in mind? hyper k reviews are hard to come by too, unless u say youve used it before.

        What we are saying here is stretch your budget to avoid complications further down the line. I have had to RMA a PSU before and its no fun not having a working PC and I ended up buying a replacement while I RMA'ed.

        If you are really unlucky then you will have to RMA not just your PSU but other parts too and IF there is proof that its due to PSU they will no honour the replacements - this will cost you dearly in the future,..............

        Am I missing something? SuperFlower PSUs are almost the same price as Seasonic Focus GX for the 650w category, what is the advantage of going SuperFlower?

        i understand stretching my budget to get a higher quality psu, but i do not see the point spending more buying a higher power psu if the system i am building will not even use so much power in the first place.

        currently hyper k 500w around $63.

        Am I missing something? SuperFlower PSUs are almost the same price as Seasonic Focus GX for the 650w category, what is the advantage of going SuperFlower?
        most places selling superflower for $10 less, and u can also get rgb with superflower but i think the price difference is worth the 5 years extra in warranty on the seasonic.

        Stretching your budget to buy quality over cheap did not suggest to go for a higher powered PSU. Its just to protect you against possible failure.

        One factor to consider that you gain with a higher quality PSU (apart from warranty) is the capability for the PSU to be in fanless mode when system is loaded.

        Previously when using Silverstone SX500-LG, the fan would come on during active web browsing and gaming. Now 3/4 of a year using Seasonic SGX 500, I've never seen or heard the PSU fan at all. In fact I've never had to clean the dust filter for the PSU ever since I upgraded to the Seasonic.

        are u referring to the hyper k series, or do u have another series in mind? hyper k reviews are hard to come by too, unless u say youve used it before.
        my 1 is previous series......it is like superflower...oem...not many people know.

        i went to sls shop, tell him....bought cheap & expensive cm...keep dying.... then he recommend me fsp..... i was like "i nv heard of this brand...."
        trust him and try it...and lasted more than 5 years until the fan die.

        hyper k should be good too since so many people bought from shopee.


        FSP developed their own retail brand "FSP" in 2003, which mainly sells power supplies. Power supplies manufactured by FSP are also sold by Antec, Sparkle Power International (SPI) (USA), OCZ, SilverStone Technology, Thermaltake, Nexus and Zalman under their own names.[2]

        yes, but those series that arklaw and xseanx recommended start at 550w (for the seasonic focus gx) and 850w (for the corsair ax), and my point is that i dont need so much power to begin with, thats why i started this thread asking for recommendations for 450/500w only. this higher power could also be part of the reason why they are more expensive and hence out of my budget. maybe higher wattage skus are just how higher quality psus are. if i had infinite budget sure i would definitely consider them, but reality is often disappointing.

        my 1 is previous series......it is like superflower...oem...not many people know.

        i went to sls shop, tell him....bought cheap & expensive cm...keep dying.... then he recommend me fsp..... i was like "i nv heard of this brand...."

        hyper k should be good too since so many people bought from shopee.
        thanks for your recommendation. is your psu the hexa series? i came across a korean review saying the hyper k is marginally better than the hexa series, which many sites say is quite a bad psu. jonnyguru also does mention the hyper k to be the worst that fsp manufactures.

        at the end of the day, im just looking for a good compromise between reliability and cost. judging from the other psu thread, i think i will go for the super flower psu.

        one more question i would like to ask is if can trust the pricing on tradepac's website, doesnt seem updated regularly.
