    I don't think the -5 V is prihibited in the newer standard, it is just not required.

    And don't throw that away, with 40 amps at +5 V, it's good for somebody sho wants to run dual PIII system with some reasonable Radeon 9x00 graphics. If it's half decent so it can actually manage to supply that power, with recap it'll be nice unit for that. Such are hard to find these days! I think somebody inquired similar one not long time ago here.

    620W. It appears to have came out in 2013 and has excellent reviews and is fully modular. Is there something wrong with it?

    So one last question, what should I do with this old PSU? I can't just throw it in the trash can I?
    No way around it. Get that G2. You will have a proper PSU for 10Y

    S12II / M12II are very reliable units, but at the same time very outdated.

    But it's almost double the price and I will have to wait for shipping. What exactly would be outdated on the unit? Has there been a change in designs since 2013?

    It's actually a 7/8 years old PSU, the non EVO revision then, but the only difference between the EVO and non EVO is semi-modular vs full modular.

    It's just nothing interesting nowadays and for 50$ you much better power supplies in the USA.

    For 19 USD you can get one of the BEST units around.

    Thats a very low price difference. I wish that was the case in Europe.

    My point still stands. Might as well get the best one for the price, which IMO is the 550 G2. Price match it if you do not want to deal with ncix.

    I still don't see that lower price, only a higher price, before and after rebate.

    I posted it twice. I don't see how it did not show up on your side unless NCIX is using a region filter - which I'd not be suprised considering how they're one of the more mediocre stores..
    The price went up today (deal ended). It was 69.99 before with 10 dollar off rebate, making it 59.99 for a 550w G2. It's not uncommon to get cheap G2's in the US. EVGA practically gives them away for free here. Well not in Canada, but just across the border.

    OP missed out on a deal.

    Another expired deal: One could've gotten the 550 G2 again, but from newegg ebay. Using the 15USD off 75 USD coupon that expired yesterday(CDECFLASHSAVE), OP could've gotten a 550 g2 for $65 (79.99 - 15 = 64.99) before tax. But that coupon code is expired now.


    It's easy to get a good deal on a computer component in the US.

    It never showed up for $69.99 for me. It was $79.99.
