Firstly, when calculating how much power you need for a budget build, make sure you use a power calculator that won't exaggerate the estimated power requirements. Sadly, I cannot link to the best one here, as it breaks Amazon's policies.
Once you've calculated what you actually need and taken into account future expansion possibilities, go with the one that matches your budget and needs. If you don't need modular cabling (which has a price premium), this PSU is great value for money and it's rock solid in terms of power output during continuous stress testing. Furthermore, like with all Corsair PSUs I've seen, the fan is genuinely quiet, even at heavy loads.
This PSU isn't for everyone, but if you're going for a budget build, don't risk getting a dodgy PSU from a no-name manufacturer just to save £10-15. In my experience, those no-name power supplies don't last and are ultimately a false economy. By contrast, unless there's a change in the ATX PSU specs again (currently at 2.4 I think), your Corsair PSU will likely last you through a few PC builds.
I must say, the power supply is quite even under full load and not heard till you open up your cabinet and put your ears next to it. It also is painted matte black, which is always a sign of high quality and should suit most cases' black color scheme.
However, the power supply is not modular(which may be better for those who are beginners) or contain color coded wires (the wires are multi color instead) , but this is expected from a power supply of this price range.
The main thing I look in PSU is stability and noise levels. And this PSU is really quite which I’m quite pleased about.
This PSU is not modular so there will be a lot of cables lying around which you would need to find space inside your case to tuck away.
There’s plenty of interfaces available and connectors and cables are well made. The only downside is that it is slightly bulky. If you have not much space in your case I would recommend going for modular or semi-modular PSU.
It has 6 SATA power plugs and 2 power plugs for GPU graphics cards that need power external from the normal PCIe slot (which is many mid-range GPUs and all high-range GPUs). So this can support 2 high-end graphics cards but the 450w output would probably suffer if you tried it. So not sure why there are two outputs - anyone with a gaming PC with two GPUs would probably be using a much more powerful PSU to start with. But they are there.
I had intended to try a cheap PSU but when the time came to buy it I went for a decent one instead. A cheap one might give brown-outs or crashes and at worst a mainboard failure. Why spend hundreds on hardware and then get measly on the power suppy it relys on?
use a tool like pc part picker to see your build power consumption before wasting cash on a high watt psu. if u get one that is to high for your needs it will not be efficient and if its designed to pass a much higher wattage it will be wasting energy that u will have to pay for you should get something about 15% higher than what u will draw from the components for the sweet spot.
