what happened to getting a corsair??
they're too expensive
the 7 year ones are out of my budget, and if i'm going to go for one with a 5 year warranty i might as well take the thermaltake because it's modular and more efficent
well, they ARE a tad expensive, but they are worth it imo.
no, i do want one, i just flat out can't afford it, i've done well to go up to the 675w, and since it's got a 5 year warranty, it can't be too bad, these things have got really good reviews
Thermaltake is fine, its not that much worse than Corsair
and at least we got a TT rep on the forums so he can sort out any issues if it should catch fire
it not an if, it's a when
Well i don't think it be that bad since i have heard good things about the Toughpower series.
I've read a few goods and bads about Antec psu like their truepower series because there multi-rail or something. Or build quality isn't good.
But my friend has an Antec truepower new 650w in his system and it runs perfectly fine.
As for budget,it doesn't kill be patient and wait until you can afford the "better" quality goods right.
my current power supply unit will only support one hard drive and my graphics card won't work, how long do you expect me to keep the system like that?
I ordered my external drive for my lappy on the 25th. and it still isnt here..... ~sigh~
Well you seem to have stealthxstream which is from ocz i thought they were quite good.
But then again the one i ordered before my corsair 400w was DOA.
As I said, you need not worry about the toughpowers, they are great, for every bad experience with them, you will find at least one for most other major brands including Corsair (and I have had 2 of them, the last one blew up), I then went Antec, had 4 in a year (3 of them warranty replacements) and everyone blew and I was well within the amperage ratings, this led me to try Thermaltake, that was 3 years ago, never had a single issue since, for the first time in 25 years of computing.
no the stealthxtreme broke, now i'm using an unbranded 400W
if it was a CX series PSU. they have been know to be a little shoddy
This was 2 or 3 years ago freedom i got my CX400w.
The CX400w is high quality corsair product unlike there 430w+.
Actually, Q.I. told me that tea and coffee don't actually dehydrate you as they replace more water than they take from you, if you know what I mean.
I read the same thing about potato being much worse for your teeth than sugar. IIRC it was said to be because of the starch? So yea, you're better off eating chocolate than crisps.
Yea I think I'm gonna be sticking with Thermaltake PSU's for a while too. The only reliable PSU I've ever owned was a TT.
cheesy, I think you made an okay choice with your PSU.
My external DVD-rw is here!!!
USB cables shorter then my cock. but hey i only payed £22 for it and not £30 so i cant really complain
if anyone wants to give a shit - its a Lite-on External top loading DVD-Rw. i bought it because it was the cheapest. I probably wont need it at all when i get my games and other burning software installed
can't you just use a different cable?
I can, but its finding the right one.
anything longer then 12" doesnt work -- at least thats what the comments say as this uses just 1 usb port instead of 2 like most other drives. so its gonna keep the cable short to provide enough power to the external drive.
Im gonna have to poke around my room and see if i can find a short enough cable.
I might even need to buy one possibly
aren't USB cables rated to a higher power spec, just plug it into a usb3 port using a usb 3 cable and watch backward compatibly do it's thing
I am BACK!
where did you go again?
He went to invade france
and succeeded i take it
external dvd rw was bought for use primarily for my laptop. laptop does not have a USB3 port
