Okay this topic is for documentation purposes more than anything, because I am getting this PSU to replace my aging (yet still functional) Cooler master silent pro M PSU.

I see this is a tier 2 PSU which is good and its currently on sale for $65 smackers (plus shipping but still below its normal asking price)

 

Hey its tier 2 but I cannot say no to that price especially when i am very worried about how much longer my current PSU will last (its already out of warrenty and I would very much to keep my stuff running for as long as possible with me not having very much money right now and I want to get what i can when i can) 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151118

 

I am also getting a cheap PSU tester

 

In any case I will use this topic to tell you if I needed to RMA this, it was fine or was performing the part of the cannons in the 1812 overture

 

 

Wish me luck

Well its in good fun, plus even high end PSU's can fail.

Plus people interested in the same model might be persuaded to buy or not buy this model based on my experience with it

Well personal experience is something I think everyone can benefit from especially concerning matters like power supplies which are the most critical part of your machine as without it the machine wont run.

People dont think of a power supply until sparks begin to fly

 


 

Yeah those are done on low cost PSU's but it can happen on high end PSU's as well

Indeed, but thats why I am making this topic.

After all this is one of the top tier power supplies (tier 1 through 3 are normally pretty good) and it should pass some test of some kind to get on said list.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

 

Its a 80+ gold rated PSU bringing even more of a bonus into its cost factor plus seasonic is noted to be the best PSU manufacturer by most standards.

I am just letting everyone know my experience thats all, its something people need in their build after all (again cant have a computer without something to power it)

I will follow this with interest.

 

I too have a somewhat aging psu in one of my pc's.

 

It is still functional, but occasionally displays some slightly erratic behaviour....especially so when the psu is under an increased load.

Sole purpose of topic is to promote a given product...that qualifies as spam, IMO...especially so since there is no forum or subforum here at BC where such is routinely done and NOT considered spam.

 

This topic is now closed.
