    Default ETASIS ET750 for $60 CAD, a good buy ?

    Hello !

    I read the ET850 review after seeing the ET750 for $60 on newegg.ca, I'm wondering if the 750W model would be a good buy considering the positive review the 850W unit got.

    Thank you for your time !

    here is the same question.

    I've posted something in that thread, it's not bad but it's rather old, so you don't have 8pin PCIe connectors, the efficiency isn't good, especially at lower loads, the Fan is very noticable (well, not the fan itself but the noise of the flowing air).

    It's cheap, but rather old and you may want something more.
    Why not buy a modern 500W PSU like Antecs TPN-550??

    That thread was created after this one, I sure won't mind if both get merged.

    I'm currently running a EA500, it did a wonderful job powering an OC'ed Q6600 @ 3.45 & a 4870 (24/7 under full CPU & GPU load for Folding@Home) but it is showing its age with the fan vibrating loudly every once in a while and some whiny, high pitch chirping I'm also planning on a 2nd video card so I'll be needing extra 2x3 PCIe connectors anyway.

    My first pick was the TP-750 but the newegg deal with free shipping really made me hesitate.

    ill be using these in a htpc with a 4850 and another all purpose with a 5850 so no need for me to have dual gpu's i use my corsair hx850 for that system.

    i wanted the tp750 myself tbh but as you said this is steal for a real 750watt psu

    That was Stefan's point. It has an 8-pin EPS12V connector, but it does not have 8-pin PCI-E power connectors.

    oh i see i read his response wrong sorry about that. since this only has a 1year on it ill make mine modular with some molex connectors i have it just will be outside the psu. my point is at 49$ free shipping is there anything else comparable at that same price or even 10-15$ more?? if this is a good psu this is exactly the price point i was hoping to find something at i just wish it was modular, cant the 6pin pci-e be converted to 8 pin faily easy also?
