Take it from us, it's not worth skimping on a generic brand power supply with a questionable reputation. If it goes up in smoke, it can take your system with it. Paying a little more for a name brand PSU is worth it. That doesn't mean you need to spend a fortune on a PSU. The trick is to nab one on sale, as is the case with Corsair's RM650x.
As the model name implies, the RM650x is a 650W PSU and it's currently on sale for $80 on Newegg after a $20 mail-in-rebate.
The RM650x is fully modular, which can be handy when building inside tight confines, such as a small form factor chassis. It is also 80 Plus Gold certified.
This one utilizes a single +12V rail design with 54A available to feed power hungry CPUs and GPUs. As for connectors, things shake out like this:
- 1 x ATX
- 1 x EPS
- 1 x floppy
- 7 x 4-pin peripheral (Molex)
- 4 x PCI-Express
- 8 x SATA
The cables are fully sleeved and several of them are flattened out to make cable management easier.
