    Why Bronze?

    You have to have a particular efficiency power supply?

    Also, many of these vary based on wattage. Example: CV450 and CV550 are group regulated while CV650 has DC to DC.

    Why do you help us help you make an informed decision and tell us what your planning to power and maybe provide links to some stores in the Philippines you plan to use to buy hardware from.

    For the record, the "best Bronze" PSU aren't even on your list.

    It's going to be either the Corsair CX, the Asus TUF, EVGA B2 or B5.

    In YOUR list, the Seasonic S12III is the only one that's passable, but certainly not "the best".

    That first link, you can't even sort by category to FIND power supplies.

    The second one doesn't even have power supplies as a category you can look through.

    And the third one is just a PDF.

    At least the PDF has power supplies. But they're either overkill or garbage.

    Those Thermaltakes are WAY over priced.

    If this Cooler Master MWE Bronze is the V2 (MPE-5501-ACAAB), this is a good price for a 550W: https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/c...oODX7&search=1

    Don't get it if it's a V1 (MPX-5501-ACAAB), avoid it.

    If you can't get the MWE V2, then just stick with the S12III 550W.

    What do we know about this unit? I believe it's double forward and group regulated +12V w/ +5V with only the +3.3V on D2D.

    I couldn't find any info about the segotep protection, review.
    Then why suggest it?

    Though it's bound to be better than any of the 80 PLUS Bronze units mentioned.

    No good reviews of the VTE units right now, but there are internal pictures of the 500w here, 600w looks to be the same.
