    Smile Topower SilentEZ 500W And PSU choice!

    Hi!
    Last time, you guys helped me to choose PSU (I got great advices here). I wanted to ask you, what do you think about this PSU? I cant find any good review or just opinions about this PSU. I have opportunity to buy it, brand new, for 45 euros, so I need some help from experts

    Also, what would be your choice amongst these:

    - OCZ Fatal1ty 550W (63e) http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-550...er-supply.html

    - LC Power Silent Giant LC6560GP3 560W (49e) http://www.lc-power.de/index.php?id=203

    - Topower SilentEZ 500W (45e) http://www.topower.com/product/silentez.htm

    - Seasonic SS-400ET 400W (39e) http://www.seasonic.com/product/pc_atx.jsp

    - LC Power SuperSilent LC6550 V2.2 550W (39e) http://www.lc-power.de/index.php?id=180&L=1


    It will power E3400 3960MHz @ 1.344V, XFX 9600GT XXX @ stock and 1 hd/dvd-rw, couple of vents...basically, nothing special :P

    What I do want to know is:
    1. The best power supply from this group;
    2. The best bang for the buck from this group;
    3. The quiet PSUs from this group.

    Thx a lot

    The Seasonic SS-400ET or OCZ Fatal1ty 550w units would be the best option.

    The two LC Power units are not worth it, and the Topower unit is a very cheap Andyson design.

    For this money, not really :P

    The problem is, OCZ is expensive and made by Sirtec -.- I would give money, but is it really that good?
    I can get TT LitePower, Chieftecs, CoolerMaster ElitePower and that's about it. If i had money, I would buy Seasonic SS-520GB (GM), no doubt, but thats not the case :P

    I wanted to grab this Topower, its modular, cheap, has nice cable lenghts (mediocre), but I cant find any good review. Also, i got advice from T-T to avoid this PSU.

    What about these LC Powers? They kinda look good on paper (450W / 470W on +12V combined, 80 Plus / Bronze)? Are they really bad :P?

    TT Litepower are FSP made and solid options.
    Chieftec CTG-500-80P/CTB-500S are also solid options. GPS ones - I would pass.
    Elite Power is something you should avoid at all costs - old, overpriced units.
