Core V21 PSU Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I just picked up the Core v21 and was wondering if anybody has a suggestion on what power supply will be the best.

 

Radeon R9 270X

Crucial Ballistix Elite 8gb

1TB WD 7200RPM Sata 3​

Gigabyte GA-F2A8XM-D3H

AMD 8320 Black Edition 3.5GHz

For that setup, about 500 watts is enough.

 

As for which particular unit, obviously you'll want a reliable and high quality unit. The case supports any normal ATX PSU, even ones with fixed cables, but with modular cables you'll be able to cut down on unnecessary cable clutter. Where are you buying from?

EVGA 550 G2 $85 ($70 after rebate) @ newegg. Fully modular. Very efficient and has semi-fanless mode which makes it silent when idling. Top notch reliability. 7 year warranty.

 

If you want to cheap out: Antec Neo Eco 620C $65 ($40 after rebate) @ newegg. It's not modular, and it's based on a somewhat dated design, but at the same time it's been proven reliable and it should run very quiet because of the extra wattage overhead. And it's super cheap if you don't mind filling out a rebate form. Only 3 year warranty though.

 

If you want to have room for pretty much whatever upgrades you can dream of in the next 7 years, grab a Corsair RM750. $80 after promo code an mail-in rebate. RM series is extremely quiet and covered by 5 year warranty. It's certainly overkill for what you have now though.
