Need suggestions on a modular PSU
 
Hey all, looking for a reasonably priced 100% modular PSU in the 300-500w range

Needs to have at least one 6-pin pci-e connector. and it needs to be 80plus certified OR better.

Any ideas?

OCZ ModXStream Pro 400W (ONLY the 400W model). It's not fully modular, but it's the best you're going to find in that wattage range.

is there something wrong with the other models?

Thanks for the suggestion, btw.

The other models are crappy Sirfa units. The 400W model is made by CWT.

i see, cant seem to find it in any of my local venues...
how's this one:
Buy the Ultra X4 Micro ATX 400W Modular Power Supply at TigerDirect.ca

The Ultra is crap. I actually can't find the OCZ PSU either. This is the cheapest good option I found at Newegg: Newegg.ca - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
Next step up would be this: Newegg.ca - XCLIO GREATPOWER X14S4P3 550W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
And then this: Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

No, but that one is.

What do you consider reasonably priced, and how modular does it have to be (even ATX power, etc.)? How about the 520HX?

Cowboy January 8, 2010 10:39 AM

50-70 is reasonable. and some of the necessary connectors can be non-modular. But the idea is to have a psu that I can remove, and only detach the cables from the psu, and not the components.
