    I have a PC from B grade parts and Members Market items and stuff i had spare. The PSU i currently have is clearly poo @pastymuncher :) . If i put the PSU into daily use, what should i be looking at 550w ? 650w. i may upgrade the CPU when i see a cheap 1700 , 2600, 2700 in the MM

    MSI R9 390
    Gigabyte B450 Motherboard
    Ryzen 1200 CPU
    16GB RAM
    240gb m.2
    750gb 2.5 SSD
    240 AIO Cooler
    total 5 fans
    cougar stx 550 PSU

    may get a psu from mm if one pops up, but shortlist of the below

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £221.08 (includes shipping: £11.10) ​

    Yeah quite a lot of stuff unavailable at the moment. The Seasonic Core GC 650W is available for around £75 if you google it.

    Buy cheap, buy twice!! You know full well my thoughts on psu's which is why you tagged me you deviant!! :D:p:D

    There does seem to be a massive shortage of psu's just about everywhere at the moment although if you hunt around some places have stock of psu's that are out of stock here and elsewhere. I picked up a Aerocool Project 7 Platinum 650w on Thursday for just under £86 which is a excellent price for that psu. It was designed by Aerocool in tandem with Techpowerup which turned out a excellent psu between them. Fully modular, platinum rated and a single 12v rail of 648w it comes with a 7 year warranty. The fan doesn't even spin below 60% load. Review here. I never thought I would end up buying a Aerocool psu as most of them are garbage but thanks to Techpowerup's involvement they have turned out a top quality psu. The OEM is Andyson and reviews state that it's the best psu that they have ever turned out.

    I can see it, but that vendor is ropey as hell, they send me a keyboard before with a whole area of the keys had been crushed and wouldnt spring back up. i returned it and they charged me a restocking fee. and refused to give me a full refund

    Never had a problem with them and I have bought more components through them than I have here. They have always got the order sent out quickly and the two times I have had to return stuff I have promptly recieved a brand new replacement or full refund including return costs. The first one was a gpu that turned up battered to hell as the courier looked like they had jumped up and down on the box (replaced), second was a six month old MSI motherboard that failed for which I recieved a full refund and bought a Asus one from them.

    well they didnt believe that these keys had the spring squashed and they you couldnt use them. so i have my doubts whether any of them have actually used a PC

    Good evening, Thank you for your email. Looking at my system my colleagues found no faults with the keyboard and as a result we would not reimburse the postage.
    Kind Regards,

    That's a very good deal. Just make sure all the cables are there. The middle setting for the fan is very quiet and is what I run mine at.

    @the shadow why are you sending multiple trusting emails to my personal address when you can see that i have already bought a PSU, not only that the link you sent to a competitor wasnt even available , and im pretty sure its against the rules

    @Space Monkey ...
