PSU Dilemma - Unable to decide what is good?
by rskamath88 - 7/16/13 8:45 AM
So I had my first desktop built as follows:
Intel i5-3470 3.2Ghz 6M LGA1155
ASUS P8Z77-V LX Z77 Crossfire
AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB DDR 5
500 GB SATA III 6GB/S 7200 RPM
4 GB DDR3/1600 Mhz
COOLIT LCS ECO II - 120mm FB Water Cooler
Corsair CX600 V2 CMPSU (600W)
However, my psu failed (luckily no damage to other components) within the first 5 months. If I remember correctly, I think I didn't have a W usage over 480 when I was speccing out the system. Anyway, I temporarily put in a Raidmax 530W but I do not like what I hear about it. In fact when I checked reviews for CX600 it wasn't good either.
I would like to know:
1) What would be a good fit considering that PSU is very critical for a desktop.
2) Would it be alright for me to replace my raidmax with a replacement cx600 since it is still under warranty?
3) Any suggestions for a good psu that I should consider investing in? Thanks.
