    This is a quick tip for my fellow TPUers that may need power supply for cheap.
    It's a quick deal on the EGG right now, won't last long for sure.
    Get 'em while they are hot.

    700 WATT Apevia Power Supply for $39.00
    That’s a fantastic price...get one now for backup purposes.

    I ordered one myself for backup.

    Just as a warning, I've had an Apevia PSU that died and my friend has one that fried his X58 board. Maybe you will get a good one, but I don't like taking gambles with PSUs.
     
    Raw says thanks.

    the Apevia is a hell of a buy.

    Thanks.
    I also have had Apevias in many machines and never had a problem.
    Matter of fact, I have a 600 watt SLI PS from them that is 4 years old and still works flawlessly in one machine.

    Funny you mention that, I have a lot of Corsairs here and the only PS that ever gave me trouble was a Corsair, it actually had a small fire (lots of smoke - house stunk for a day)

    Theres a bad one in every bunch no matter what you buy, nor from whom you buy.

    In all my good machines I strictly run Corsairs. 850 Gold model for my new main system and HX850's for the others.

    But no matter what, the Apevia is a hell of a buy.
    I went for one myself and called 3 friends too.

    In all honesty, I would spend the extra 10$ and pickup that Corsair CX500 for reliability.

    That's the Corsair Builders model that caught on fire for me, the CX500. :rockout::laugh:
    I just RMA'ed it and got a new one.

    Hmmm odd. I have never had an issue out of any corsair units I have owned but not every company is perfect.

    No...that power supply was not in one of

    :laugh:No...that power supply was not in one of my good systems, it was in a AMD AM2+ 4800 cpu machine with a (1 pc.) Sapphire 4870 2GB Graphics Card on a Asus M2N4-SLI motherboard.

    The machine you mentioned: 2500K + 2x 570's in SLI is a brand new machine I am building as we speak.
    It runs a brand new PSU CORSAIR Professional Series Gold Certified AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply.
    This baby ought to last forever (or a few good years).

    Your thread should have been posted in Hot Deals Section...

    I am like the others,though. I would not trust an Apevia Power Supply with hundreds of dollars worth of parts; as, most testing, I have seen, shows that they have poor results, quality, and overrate their PSUs.
    I looked, but found no testing on that particular PSU. Their track record bothers me.

    Hope it works for you.:)

    Sure they overrate their PSUs, but many people overestimate their required voltage. I'll be pushing an 1156 quad and a 5770/6770/7770 soon on a 400W Antec PSU.

    I'm not trying to argue the point at all.
    I hear ya, but I wouldn't use an Apevia in a high dollar system either.
    This is good for the kids computer, the wifes old clunker, things like that.
    These things have a place, common sense should guide the user.
    I have a couple of clunkers around here that I let the company use when they come over, if the need arises.
    This way, I protect my good stuff.
