Just realised my bequiet 630w is 11 years old now! Think I'm going to retire it before it retires any of my components, but what a great piece of kit!

Any other everlasting PSUs on here?

My, er... *guesses* Corsair "HX650" Bronze, from end of 2012, so 11-12 years now. No wait... I have a Corsair HX620 (White/Unrated), from 2008 is currently in a Win 98 Rig, so 16 years?

I've had my Corsair HX650 since February 2011. It was an RMA replacement for my HX520 which I had since November 2007.

Got a Seasonic X650 here in my HTPC.

Must have had it over 10 years, although it is on light duties now.

I even made some custom short cables for it. (not that it needed many)

I have a Enermax PSU from 2006 in one machine still going strong. And a couple others from the mid 2000’s. Although the Coolermaster 1000w has been recapped and has a recent new fan so not sure that counts…!

Also a couple of Dell’s with their original PSU’s from 1999…

I have an original Seasonic S12 (600 watt), which is around 18 years old and still in service in a light gaming PC with a i3-12100. With the 12100, it doesn't even turn on without a graphics card or a sound card (older i3-6100 doesn't have this problem), but other than that it works fine.

I had a Seasonic S12 430 I bought circa 2006. It lasted 15 years in various family rigs & I would still have it had one of the Sata power connectors start to smoke and then melt.
There's a Corsair VX450 in my dad's rig that's 13 years old, Its had an easy life though.
As for me, I've got an 8 year old EVGA 550G2 that's in my daily drive rig, not planning on changing that anytime soon, I'll have a problem getting a replacement that's as good when it dies.

I've had a Corsair 620w semi modular fail 6 years into its 7 year warranty. RMA'd it and they sent a 650W equivalent.
Thankfully did not take any other components with it!

All of my other PSUs are still either running albeit infrequently or in spare boxes, some 10+ years old.

Just recently realised that my old 850HX (Silver rated) that my son has running his 5800x3d and his 4080 super is 14 years old. Ive given him a RM850 to replace it but he still hasn't changed it. He seems less worried than me.

I recently sold my Be Quiet! Dark Power pro 10 1200w.
It was 10 years old.
Still worked fine, just upgraded my whole setup and didn't think it was worth chancing any problems, (I went for the Corsair 1200w Shift).

I had an Enermax 720watt psu from 2007 was running my 8700k/2080ti system up to only a few months ago :D
Was hard to believe a 2007 PSU still had the right connectors (Two 8 pin connectors) to power a 2080ti :eek:
