    Default Are theses cooler master PSU models good enough?

    I've gone through some reading on the PSU here and there. Since I have a limited selection of PSU brands in my country, I've narrowed down to only these 2

    CoolerMaster G550M
    CoolerMaster B700 ver.2

    Will either do good for my rig?

    MSI Gaming M3
    Corsair Vengeance 2 x 8 gb
    GTX 1070
    Skylake 6600k
    3 HDDs + 1 SSD
    DVD-RW

    Possibly add more drives later and overclock

    G550M is more than sufficient in terms of power and has a more modern project than B series.

    You could link to some stores, maybe there are good forgotten things..

    I thought Russia had a pretty wide selection of PSUs available. I supposed you're looking at local stores in your area and not someone that can ship to you from another part of the country?

    At any rate, the G500M is definitely not bad. In a pinch, I'd do that one in a heartbeat.

    Yeah it did before the ruble collapsed in December 2014 haha. It didn't affect any other PC parts to the same degree as PSUs. Russians just got no money on that. Electronics prices have essentially doubled just like that. So now it's mostly low tier PSUs. Anything better is hard to get you hands on so I mostly get stuff I need from German Amazon especially since the Euro dropped to 1.04 against the dollar. They deliver to Russia. However the delivery time is up to 3 weeks and I can't tolerate the noise problem I mentioned in another thread for such a long time.
    I can order from Moscow but it's around the same delivery time as German Amazon. They don't have most PSUs in stock. You gotta pre-order. Besides the Russian prices are insane by comparison to what you find abroad. They jacked them up like hell here to make a buck. Yeah I know a poor country and high prices. Go figure. Putin's Russia!
    I checked your reviews and everything. I read on the PSus on other sites. The current Russian selection is sad to say the least. We've got Zalman GLX, TX, GVM, Chiefic iArena and Smart series, Thermaltake DPS G (But lots of people complaining about poor qulity over here), FSP PNR, Deepcool DA series, Cooler master B-series and G-series. That's it. Yep They're some high tier ones but they're insanely expensive here cos of the jacking up. If something cost 100 bucks in the US it costs here at least 150

    What about B700 v2. Will it do as well? I know it's not as good as G550m but anyway

    It's not good. Not nearly as good as the G550M. But you already know that. So why are you even asking?

    What's your system specs and where do you plan to shop?

    GM is nice series. Warmer than I'd like, but it has 5y warranty…

    Well you can my specs in the original post. I plan to buy g550m here locally then. It's widely available.

    I was just asking in case you say no way to go for b700 v2 or something. They die quickly or.... I don't know. That's why I'm asking the expert

    GM is decent. B series are crap, stay way.

    Duh! Of course your system specs are in your OP. Sorry.

    If those are the only two available to you, just stick with the GM and call it a day.
