PSU Brands to Avoid!

Recommended Posts

I have the ThermalTake 680w (W0049) and there is almost no rail fluctuation. Could you go into detail on what the problem with this model is please? :D

I got an ULTRA X-Connect X2 550W power supply. Surely this is not a bad PSU right? I mean this PSU has received good reviews and no bad ones so far. And I've overclock a bit with this. So far no issues.

 

Is the one listed pointing to the older generation Ultra models? And may I know the reason it being bad? They do have a good forum on their website.

 

Warmest regards.

 

Tell that to the admin of [H], who used it against the recommendations of his users, only to have most of his connected components killed by it.

Is there any reason that ULTRA is on there? I have several friends that use ULTRA PSU w/ the same board I have and their systems run great. They aren't overclocking of course though.

Hi,

stay away from units build by LC-Power (the same as L&C?!?). I don´t know if they sell it only in Germany but these PSU´s are really bad! I had one before I bought my Powerstream and it was a real nightmare. When benching my rig I got a strange noise from the PSU; it died after some weeks. They are cheep but useless/dangerous...

you are dead on with aspire, i bought a psu because the advertised such a good 12 volt rail, the 12 volt rail ended up being 11.45 volts!!!!! LOL,wtf. I was so confused. After that happened i got rid of the aspire case that i had haha. i hate aspire now just because of that experience.

Avoid the NeoHE's, the Neo 480W is fine for non-SLI & the TP II 550W is ok for SLI,

however they are not as good as the OCZ PowerStreams. ;)

I hope your talking about the older revisions.

 

My new NeoHE 500W is flawless. I'll post DMM results if you want ;)

Anything over 600W with a quality named attached to it for the LanParty boards right?

 

The problem is that several brands sell PSUs from both bad and good manufracturers, namely Thermaltake and Arctic cooling.

 

I think given the current chaotic situation there is no other way to get a good PSU than by making a list of brand/model to manufracturer, just like we do for memory models and the chips on them.

I have an LC-Power PSU and I'm very happy with it. Active PFC, free plug, 480w, 12v1: 18a, 12v2: 18a...

 

I think LC-Power is a cheap but very good manufacturer.

Never!!! Listen to it when stressing your rig... Spend some money and buy a proven one. Just my 2cents...
