PSU Brands to Avoid!

Recommended Posts

my psu?

its a 430 -_-...

eventhough i have it prime stable... it reboots randomly more so under heavy load,so my only remedy is to put a 9cm fan on it.

if i put another harddrive or another optical drive.. i bet it will fail..

I bought an Aspire XNavigator with 500Watt power supply about a year and a half ago. I bought this one because of a review on Anandtech's website. They said it was a wonderful case and power supply. I paid close to 200 for it. Any way I have been running my opteron 165 at 2.5 ghz for about 8 months now with no problems. the 12v + says 34a so I figured well within limits especially for one card. What the heck! Now your telling me that Anandtech recommended crap to me? How do I know if my power supply is solid? Help, geez I tried to get top stuff....

"With inclusion of a 500W aluminum power supply, which is no piece of junk, the price that we would pay for the X-Navigator is worth every penny. The X-Navigator runs for about $160 at many online retailers, which is a great value. As we mentioned in our "Cooling" section, the 500W power supply runs for about $55, which is a steal in itself for the performance output. "

With respect for the effort you put into trying to research this PSU,

and sympathy for what you are now discovering ...

 

Stay far away from used car salesmen.

They will not make you happy.

 

Also remember - what was a good PSU two years ago on an Ultra-D,

And was an OK PSU one year ago with (then) newer video cards on and Ultra-D,

Is a disaster today on a Expert with SLI.

 

The target keeps moving.
