Who the hell are Zebronics? PSU looks trippy.
Yeah I know but at the time I bought it, I didn't know any shop having entry level Seasonic, XFX or Corsair. So I had to take this one. Its an Indian brand. And it is serving me quite good unexpectedly. Another friend of mine is using the same one from 2009 and he has got over 9000 hrs uptime(calculated from hdd power on time count) without any problem.
Liar! i had bought the GS600 during that time. and i even told you to get one as well!
NO! You bought the GS 600 much much later.
I remember you told me that your Frontech 500 W was giving 6V on the 5V rail. And after a few months, you got the GS 600.
And moreover, GS 600 is not entry level. It is a mid range PSU and costs almost twice as mine but bang for the buck as it has excellent quality- I admit that.
in any case the CX430 was available at that time for the same price..
even if the CX430 is 430W, its still more powerfull than the zebronics.
atleast you have a good UPS.
Agreed but I was a noob then and I didn't know about many other shops that I now do. The shop I went to had only XFX and Corsair and they were like 5000 Rs. At that time, I had no idea that Corsair can be bought for Rs 2700-VS 550= BANG FOR THE BUCK!
Zebronics is a Tier 5 PSU brand only available in india.
I did some research. And found a lot of scary things.
Needless to say, I wouldnt power anything expensive with it. The GS600 IS entry level. The zebronics is lower than entry level. It's suicidal level.
There's a reason they're so cheap.
VS series is crap. its built on old architechture just like the zebronics.
and CX series is entry level.. GS series is entry level as well, but with a bit more qualitythe psu was fine.. th motherboard sensor was bonkers. even the gs600 showed 7V!
Entry-mid and high level terms are relative.No offence but in India, one having a 9000 Rs graphics card is considered mid range. In USA, one having a similarly priced graphics card is considered entry level!
Entry level, mid range and high end does not mean quality is better on the high end than the low end. In terms of quality, a 5450 GPU and a 5950 GPU is the same. A GS 600 and GS 800 are of equal quality. Both has the same MTBF. In terms of performance - hell and heaven. I think choosing the right thing for yourself is more suitable than bothering about which ones are entry, mid and high level.
@de.das.dude- You say your GS 600 is entry. But is there anything that you can't do because of it? It handles everything you want more than you desire.
Same with my PSU also. If it breaks, I will change it.
There's always a first and last mistake.
And everything else it takes out with it?
its doing what its supposed to do. nothing else. its not like its doing anything more than i asked.
I need to get a better camera than my iPhone.
I love the ATi and AMD logos together.
And still you are able to capture images better than some people with cameras
That is rare. Because most of the times a PSU dies, it is always the primary side. The primary side has nothing to do with the other components. And the secondary side dies either when a MOSFET dies and cause short circuit or blown caps. Again having short circuit protection, that will cause zero damage. I have known and seen a LOT of people here with crappy PSUs but it is 1 out of 500 whose something died because of the PSU. Its all about luck! And talking about luck! Even an expensive Corsair PSU can fry everything once it dies. Obviously, everything have to die one day! My uncle is using an ancient P4 machine with 1 GB DDR RAM with a 250W crap FOXIN PSU. It is running for 8 years(yes EIGHT) and not a single Rupee has been spent for it yet!
to be fair his phone is probably better than most cameras
I just moved to new house and had a custom desk built into my room
needs a power supply but, no money so.. its just a
ASRock P67 Extreme Gen3
sound blaster x-fi setup
more phone pics
i need a camera too!
I had a psu go bang! luckily only the fuse blew and well the psu was smokey and smelly.
just google faulty psu pics..... youll soon get the idea!
looks like a garage/attic?
also beware, your kitteh is hiding behind the monitors.
dont you feel weird with the mouse wire coming from the front?
the setup is far from complete I just moved in, its a half finished basement
I just use that mouse for the server pc.. the server pc is the dell Pentium 4 3.4ghz socket 478 no agp or pci-e so it has a hd 4350 pci card and 2gb ddr1-400
i see. gaming would be a problem, but server,. no
is it cold in your room? thats a warm place for the cat. i like your cat. more kitteh pics please.
it gets pretty cold at night descent in the mornings
Where are the HYK0 Sammies?
When you were saying 5000 Rs, I thought you meant Rubles, not Rupees.
If you need more Rupees, just grab your sword and go chop down a bunch of bushes and tall grass. You may even find some hearts and secret seashells!
Didn't get your point
NO. NO and NO.
Separate names with a comma.
