EVGA is a great brand of psu.

In my personal experience, a brand i've used a lot is AZZA. Their PSUs are really afordable and you don't need to expend a fortune to get an excellent quality.

The first thing that brights on their PSUs is the simple but well constructed circuits, i've taken a look on a few of them and the wey components are made and placed is just great for user repair and quick failure check. The balance between power and efficency is great, and also the noise level is perfect for studio ambients.

One remarkable thing is the Relay-Based circuit for the main and secondary switching, it's a not so fast but 100% effective protective over short circuits, over voltage, burned cables, diodes mosfets or capacitors blowing, etc; Once the relay turns off nothing happens to the switching stage (The PSU killler failure). No need to mention that the noise filtering and wave purity is amazing and no noise or hiss will be heard at all.

In overall, being my actual PSU model an 750w Bronze, i can say that if you want pro quality at low cost, AZZA is your way

Go to Scan's UK's website, check the power supplies they use in their 3XS audio PCs, get one of those...
This signature tells the story really, as quoting insults directed at me makes me someone with an over-inflated ego.

I second on Seasonic. Best PSU I've used so far. Tried EVGA, Corsair and Seasonic was the best for me.

Used to use PC Power and Cooling PSU's exclusively for my builds (personal and custom workstations for clients) before they were sold to OCZ, then switched to Seasonic. Highly recommend them.

I have horrible electricity that goes down for a second few times a day every day, Seasonic is what most of my close friends use, it’s solid, we had bad experiences with other vendors, this is flawless, rocking mine almost 10 years without a hitch, it survived horrors.

Thanks for that, I will take note. Power supply here is similarly bad, very short glitches that always take down my PC. I have a Corsair PSU atm, will try Seasonic next time. :tu:
