    Default Buying PSU Tomrrow: XCLIO Goodpower 500W or OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W?

    Around here it seems like everyone loves the XCLIO, but I'm thinking the OCZ may be the better of the two. The XCLIO comes with a 1 year warranty, whereas the ModXStream comes with a 3 year waaranty!

    XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W or OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W

    XCLIO:
    +3.3V@30A; +5V@28A; -5V@0.5A; +12V1@16A; +12V2@17A; -12V@0.3A; +5VSB@2.0A

    OCZ:

    -12V@0.3A,+5VSB@2.5A

    I appreciate your quick response guys! I'm only looking to spend $50 and I need at least 480W! My BlueStorm I 500W has died :-( I think its because it's realistic ~440W continuous wasn't cutting it anymore.

    Let's assume both of these above can be had for $50 shipped, which one would you want running your system? I like the OCZ because of the three year warranty, otherwise they're neck and neck IMHO.

    Thanks!

    I don't like OCZ but the Xclio (sounds like a car?!) doesn't look very promising and old...

    ENERMAX PRO82+ EPR525AWT 525W ATX12V Ver.2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

    3year warranty
    80 plus bronze
    Quite fan

    Blows your two out of the water on quality. Again, I don't work for enermax, but this is a great value if you can tolerate waiting for the MIR.

    $60 with MIR

    Thanks mdk! I am checking that out now, looks awesome. That's a lot of money for me to put up though, as a college student. I'd have to borrow money to do so, which I don't like to do. I guess my "vision" is to get a PSU for ~$40 with a long warranty so I can trade it back in when it dies. As long as the baby can hold itself as 500W continous and doesn't fry my components I'll be satisfied. I only need to have 1 x 6-pin PCI-E and a total of 4 peripherals and 4 SATA(I can buy Molex --> Sata and vise-versa connectors). SLI/Crossfire is not necessary as my motherboard doesn't support this, I will only need this feature for my NEXT build.

    I guess the reason Im looking for an economic PSU, ~$45, because I spent $100 on my last PSU and it died after 3.5 years, right outside the warranty time :-( This computer, I actually built it about 4.5 years ago (I haven't used it in one full year). Man, this thing was a BEAST when I built it! :-D I'm still proud lol

    These are the "ancient" specs:
    Monitor: 20.1" Dell Widescreen LCD, [model: 2005FPW]
    Power Supply: FSP Bluestorm I 500W, [model: AX-500A]
    Motherboard: DFI Lanparty nForce4 Ultra-D
    CPU: Opteron 144 (1.8Ghz), overclocked to 2.4Ghz
    Heatsink & Fan: Arctic Cooling Freezer64 Heatsink & Fan
    Memory: 1GB RAM PC3200 OCZ Premier Series (512MB x 2)
    Video Card: ATI X850XT 256MB PCI-E, this is an unlocked and overclocked X800
    Hard Drives: Three 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive (totally ~600GB)
    Optical #1: NEC ND-3540A [SATA] CD/DVD-RW Combo
    Optical #2: HP 52x32x52 [IDE] CD-RW Drive, [actually a Lite-On]
    Sound Card: Turtle Beach 5.1 PCI Sound Card, [can't remember which one, but it is basic]
    Case Fan: 2 X 120mm Antec Case Fans

    The 480W minimum is what DFI recommends with this motherboard.

    davidhammock200 recommends the Xclio, he said he has tested it himself; I have yet to find his test results. I am really leaning towards the OCZ. I don't have a lot of money, $50 is really my max while powering all the components above.

    Corsair 400CX

    if this can't power a single core socket 939 rig with an X850XT video card and a single gigabyte of ram, I'll eat my shorts.
