I need a psu!

So i am going to buy my new PC very soon and the PSU(Corsair CX 600M) is out of stock on newegg. So i need a new one that is 600 watts and is modular and if you can red. Any help is greatly needed!


Why do you need 600 watts?

Try the corsair CX750M. I have that PSU

most people don't need 600w what's in your system and how far are you going to overclock

rosewill green series 630w PSU is good one, the capstone 650w one is even better

I need it for OC ing and i am going to add another GTX 660

What is your budget?

$80 USD

I'd get a Lepa G650 :)

Its out of stock on newegg

How about this PSU? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132

how many PCI-E power connectors will you need in the end? that only has 2 6+2 plugs

you could probably get away with using 2 molex to 6 pin PCI_E adaptors that just about every card comes with

but yeah its a decent PSU, don't forget the promo code as it shave's off 20 bucks

I like this (overkill - 750W for $80):


Or this (reasonable 500W for $45):



Both prices are before a $20 rebate. Both are great PSUs.

I love this one, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013, and i own this one, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207011, but neither are on sale right now so I would go with EVGA. THey are the least expensive good brand right now. Also, I strongly recommend reading Johnny Guru reviews on PSUs.

im going to get the Roswell hive or should i get the Corsair  CX 750M?

Are they both modular? If in doubt, pick the moduloar one. It makes a world of a difference. This is far more important that how many watts (given your needs).

Don't base your PSU decision off of modularity. Get the Rosewil Hive.

The Corsair CX series claim to have "Japanese" capacitors, which makes them sound nice. Correction, they have ONE Japanese capacitor, rated only at 85C, not the standard of 105C, with the rest of the caps being Tiawanese or Chinese, cheap shitty ones.

The Rosewill Hive is a vastly better PSU :)
