    Thumbs up PSU recommendations for current build.[COMPLETE]

    Edit: I made my choice I no longer require recommendations but thanks to everyone who did respond.

    Hey all,

    Just looking for a new PSU for my current build not looking to upgrade or change anything else at this time. Last PSU got RMA at 5/7 years of warranty which was a corsair AX860i 750w.

    I'm not planning on any overclocking.

    Located NSW Australia using $AUD.

    Preferred sites;

    http://www.dcomponline.com.au/

    https://www.pccasegear.com/

    https://www.mwave.com.au/

    https://www.scorptec.com.au

    Budget is around $250-300 AUD may have wiggle room if its really worth an upgrade a little beyond that amount.

    Wouldn't mind RGB but not a requirement at all. Looking for reliability and quality.

    Thank you in advance for any advice or suggestions.

    $100 gets you plenty of power and a decent quality PSU, little reason to go above this.
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    I'll take your word for the AX860I not working, OP. But is it possible that you can buy from sites other than the two mentioned before??

    Because those two sites don't offer much availability. Sad to see the best deal being the Pure Power 11 500W for 100 AUD, which is bad in pretty much any other 1st world country (currency converted). Austin Computers has the CX550, a higher quality PSU compared to the Pure Power 11, for 15 AUD less. So it would be great if you could buy from there.

    The Pure Power 11 500W will work fine in your build. If you're just limited to those two sites, then that's fine too. However I'm just saying that MUCH better deals exist in other sites, if you can buy from them.

    Is that the stuff you already own or plan to get??

    If you don't have it:
    [spoiler] I'd not get a liquid cooling system and a decent "Air Cooler" such as an NH-U14S (if it fits but it should) or even NH-D15 instead. Look for AM4 compatibility.
    X570 I'm not too happy with, could save a bit with a B450 Board

    The 32GiB, are they DDR4-3200?? And are you doing some serious work like "Content Creation"? Or is it for Gaming? For Gaming, 16GiB is sufficient.
    The Samsung EVO is not necessary, there are cheaper options, maybe not as good, but for (almost) half the price. Again, if you do some serious content creation, the Samsung might be for you, for Gaming you might want to look at a cheaper alternative.

    And with the saved money, you should be able to get an RX5700, wich was the main reason for it...
    [/spoiler]

    As for the PSU; the Pure Power 11 is a decent option, the price is great too, especially for Australia wich seem to be on the more expensive side.

    Damn that's serious overkill for a 3600. Most overclocking on Zen 2 is done on RAM anyway.

    That is not true.
    Its just, converted, ~5 more than in Germany. So that is a very good price, wich converts to 68USD or 62

    Debatable...
    For ~500W, both are fine, the be quiet however has the better fan and fan controller with ~500rpm at lower loads while the CX550 is at 900rpm, so its fairly noticable...
    Overall quality is more or less the same for both units. One uses LLC Resonant, the other Active Clamb, but the overall "quality" is something only an engineer can say after dozens of hours of reverse engineering.

    And with my Tests with my (granted, power limited) VEGA64, I couldn't hear anything from the Pure Power I have...

    For other countrys, maybe, but for Australia??
    Over here there is for example the Bitfenix Formula...

    Really? I was aiming for 600-750w just to be safe and incase I upgrade heavy later.

    Yeah the AX860i was dead. Already been tested and approved for getting a refund.

    Yeah open to other sites as well just looking for Aussie sites preferably. So others like mwave.com.au or scorptec.com.au

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Already have all that. It's my current build as I said. I'll be doing the cooling and monitor next around March. Sorry if it wasn't clear.

    Edit: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/33244 this is the one I bought. They are DDR4-2400.

    Most use is gaming and basic word processing etc.
