Hi i also need a suggestion. I am having my old rig It seems my psu cm600 is giving power issues.

I am planning to change the psu. Which one would be good to go

Cooler Master 500 W eXtreme Power Supply @3.2k
or
Coolermaster Thunder 500W Power Supply @3.1k
or
Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 Power Supply@ 4k
or
Corsair Gaming Series GS500 power supply @4k

Not sure if 460 or 430 series would be suffice. I am not sure how power hungry the msi is. But it demands abnormal power otherwise it will get heat so soon to 100 deg but once thermal heat applied it was cool at max 100 percent usage 78 max hit and stable .

I was running 2x on gs800. I went high psu so that i can keep on changing gpu without any issues. Thankfully at that time the psu were cheap not it keeps on increasing like anything say close 25% cost is up.

What's the config of old rig? If you donot Overclock on it or doesn't have high power requirements, a less powerful PSU like CX430v2 will be enough as well


and again do mention the config.

its
intel e5800 no oc at all stock 3.2ghz
4gb ddr3 1333 value ram corsair
500gh hdd
msi hd 5770 no oc stock speed 875mhz
fan controller 5 fans

thats all.

460 is that enough or 500 watts is safe to go.

430 wont be sufficient as msi really suck power atleast 250 watts

Also cm site is confusing. As Pci-e x1 in connectors diagram and pci-e x2 in connectors length diagram.

not sure which one is correct. I believe 500w should not be enough for CF or SLI

^Sell 5770 and buy a 7850 rather than CFing.

And if you want to CF, opt for tx650v2, otherwise cx430v2 should be fine. If you're sceptic, go for Seasonic sii 520W.

After all I determine to purchase SEASONIC 520W POWER SUPPLY 80+ BRONZE (S12II-520) from Tirupati Enterprises, Overclockers Zone as they are distributor/service provider of India. Advantage Rs.4370, shipping free, 5years warranty.
Corsair 500CXV2UK (Rs.3500) or Corsair GS 500 (Rs.4000)not my choice due to 3years warranty but after sales support is good & Corsair GS 500 listed AMD Certified Power Supplies http://support.amd.com/us/certified/power-supplies/Pages/details.aspx?item=575
GX450/550 is not recommended from well-known hardware forums and I don't know about their service.
