Default X-Connect X2 550W

Hi,

I was wondering if the X-Connect X2 550 W PSU is a good PSU. I wanted a modular PSU and this also has 35 amps under the +12v. Do you think the 550 W power will be good though?

Thanks.

Actualy dont get that one. The reason its 20 bucks is because its not SLI ready, dosent have 24pins, has an 80mm fan instead of 120mm and it only has 15amps on the 12v rail. Get the X2 550, youll be glad you did. Im running now w/ 2 of those bad boys and you cant hear the fan either.

The Hiper Type R Power supplies are of much better quality.

And this One Is pretty good also.

Also Look at the Enermax Liberty Series.

The Ultra is not Active PFC.

The Silverstone 500 is if you have to have it.
