DFI Recommended Power Supplies (UPDATED October 20th, 2006!)

Recommended Posts

Sorry to hear it, but they work fine 99.99%+ of the time. You just got a bad one.

 

CONGRATS on the PC P&C, they are the best! :nod:

 

The thing is the OCZ PSU has worked fine in my previous system since I bought it in October last year.

Tagans are,trully powerfull and really stable with good electronics as brain.

They just not went popular as much as Ocz Powerstream.

I bought a Silverstone Zeus 520W last week to replace my Tagan 480W.

Build quality, features and as far as i've been able to test stability, is all just fine.

 

One thing that did bother me is the noise it produces. It was supposed to be a near silent PSU. Well it's most definitly NOT !!

As soon as some load is applied the cooling fans start to spin fullspeed.

 

It must be said the exiting air is quite cool. Voltage stability is also not an issue.

 

Bottom line is, i'm going to return it to the shop and exchange it for the new Tagan 530W. My experience with the 480W Tagan was very good and is was almost inaudible. But i could use a little bit extra power to feed my new Venice 3800+

 

As soon as it arrives i will post my findings with the Tagan 530W
