    Default Which PSU from these is the best to buy

    Hello.

    I am new here. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I have 8 years old really simple LC-600H-12 V2.3 PSU.
    It makes some noise last 2-3 years and I want to change it.

    My computer configuration is:

    i5-760 Quad core
    nVidia GTS 450
    12 Gb RAM
    850 EVO Samsung SSD
    USB WD passport hdd

    I measured, it uses max 260W from the wall when I am doing video rendering. When internet browsing or watching a movie is aroun 90-100W. Not playing games, ever. What I need is super quiet PSU because I mostly work at night. I prefer 80 Plus Gold or Bronze standard.


    Considering one of these PSUs:

    SEASONIC - M12II Evo Edition 520W 80 PLUS Bronze - SS-520GM2 520W (~95$)
    LC-POWER - GP4 Series 560W - LC6560GP4 V2.4 560W, Semi-Modular (95$)
    LC-POWER - Super Silent Series 550W - LC6550 V2.3 550W (62$)
    LC-POWER - 500W LC9550 V2.3 - Gold Series 500W (76$)

    I know it's cheaper online, but this is the price of PSUs in my area. All above PSUs I can buy in regular shops.

    PSUs below, I can buy through various resellers, but it can be tricky to replace it if something goes wrong, or at least being forced to wait around a month for a replacement:

    Corsair rm550x (102$)
    Corsair cx650 (80$)


    What is your suggestion?

    Thank you.

    1. Group regulated garbage, protection shit -> no UVP on 12V, loud as hell, avoid at all cost, especially for the Price
    2. wich GP4?? The Gold one? If so, if LC-Power didn't change this Series, its OK as it is similar to Corsair CS (or TXm, without all "Japanese" Caps)
    3. AVOID again, old group regulated, low quality stuff.
    4. meh, not that good but at least DC-DC and LLC-Resonant though Andyson. If there is no other Option its OK, but if there are, get something else.


    But as said, there is another Thread about Serbia with better Options.

    Personally speaking I would get the RM550X if that is an option for you through a reseller.

    My thoughts at least,

    Is TX550 also good option? RM550 is a bit expensive.
