The PSU Thread: New Products and Reviews

  • Test mo muna bro bago mo dalhin. Sayang lang punta mo pag di faulty yung unit. Di nila i-RMA yan. Mahalaga diyan ma replicate mo yung issue na namamatay yung display or nawawalan ng power yung pc pag kinakargahan na ng wattage yung gpu. Malakas pa man din yung video card mo na bago. Pag coil whine lang talaga most likely di nila palitan kasi.

    Try mo gamitin ng full load yung pc mo - tapos pag may napansin ka na issues like screen tearing (parang pag nagfluctuate yung kuryente), display switching off, or random restart - may problem talaga yung psu na unit. Pero kung coil whine lang kasi yan - most likely walang ganyang issues. Aesthetic noise lang yan.

    Gamit ka din ng high powered AVR or UPS para sigurado na hindi sa wall electric socket mo problem.
  • @xkeikox

    yun nga yung naririnig ko parang nag nagfluctuate yung kuryente pag pinapakinggan ko pero hinde ganun ka lakas..naglaro pako ng bf4 and dragon AGE inquisition nun after kasi nga tinest ko mna baka mamatay uli...tapos pag pinapatay ko siya parang lalakas muna yung fan sabay off.
  • @xkeikox

    bro nwala na yung ingay... tinest ko din siya sa heavens bench mark, MSI Kombustor, Valley Benchmark, pinag sabay sabay ko slang 3 although yung pag open ko kanina nag ingay yung psu ko ngyon wala na.. naglalaro ako dragon age inquisition and battlefield 4 ng walang ingay or problems... pero ttgnan ko padin ma buti baka ngyon lang to..
  • Oks good news yan kung ganyan, basta use it as you would normally do lang. Game on pero if something's amiss, most likely its the psu. May warranty naman so worry free hehe
  • yes and maganda naman warranty sa shop na binilan ko 1 year pala hehe..

    poblema ko ngyon is ung r9 280x ko naman ang taas ng temps 80'c hahaha para sakin hinde considerate ung temps kasi nga trilpe fan na my backplate pa pero 80'c umabot hehe
  • Guys.. ask lang sana.. meron ba dito nagkaka issue sa psu nila pagdating sa Haswell system.. but works perfectly fine with non haswell system?
  • PSU's normally specify if they are Haswell ready or not. But I can't directly say kung may problem for certain psu's when powering Haswell cpu's. Check your psu specs in the manufacturer's site and see if its haswell ready or not - if its not most likely there might be issues that you'll encounter.
  • Check sample link - <click here for link> It says there that this PSU is Haswell ready at the bottom of the product image but only for their higher models - 700 - 800 watts.
  • @xkeikox

    it does not matter kung haswell ready ang psu o hindi and i believe you do not know what it is by the meaning of the haswell ready feature.

    ito yung feature ng haswell na magpoproceed into something like a deep sleep which is used to save power C6/C7 states ito AFAIK. so kapag psu mo "haswell ready" sasabayan niya yung lower power states para yung efficiency at low loads hindi magsuffer as PSU's normally na sakto lang ang performance has a very low efficiency sa low loads (10-100w)

    Didn't I just try stating an opinion with his question? Never said that not being haswell ready means that other non haswell ready psu's can't be used. I just stated that he may encounter problems using it with non-haswell ready psu's. As a matter of fact you simply reiterated my response as well that he will encounter issues if he's using a non-haswell ready psu with a haswell procie.

    And I never tried defining what 'haswell ready' meant in any of those responses. Thank you for your enlightening lecture too btw.

    Not a 'guru' around here. But I never mislead people with my responses.

    Guys.. relax.. magpapasko na :) teka going back to the topic..

    ~ I just asked regarding this matter kasi I have this InWin Glacier 900w 80+ Gold PSU.. my PSU is working flawlessly with my Z77 system before.. and I even tried it on my AMD A10 system sa office.. works perfectly din.

    ~ Now on my new "Haswell system" whenever I shut down my PC and turn it on again.. it won't boot.. I have to clear CMOS a couple of times to make it boot.. and load optimized default. (restarting has no problem, just on power off / shutdown)

    ~ I bought my system to the service center since it's brand new to have it diagnosed, we tested 3 power supplies , my PSU... a Cougar 450w and a Cougar 1050w PSU.. guess what? pag yung 2 Cougar ginamit.. normal boot up sya! as in no problem at all.. walang "sinok" sa fans / and yung patay sindi ng system.. BUT pag yung PSU ko.. problem occurs.. (good working unit PSU ko / tested it on 3 machines / also tested the voltage.. stable lahat)

    Any idea?


    by the way ito gamit ko

    Core i5 4690k
    Gigabyte Z97MX Gaming 5
    Corsair Dominator Platinum 4x4gb (16gb)
    etc etc


    any idea?
  • @keikox

    no. its not the same. dahil sinasabi mo na pwedeng problem yung hindi haswell ready yung psu mo which is the point of your opinion.

    fact is, kahit hindi haswell ready ang psu eh walang issue yan sa haswell and will never be :)

    Thank you so much :)

  • @neesnu

    anong 3 other systems yung pinagtestingan mo? are they higher end system kesa sa pc mo?
  • @neesnu

    Hehehe oo nga naman, cool lang tayo. Check this article bro, it might shed some light - <click here for link>

  • @netxzero

    nope.. pero ito

    1 ~ AMD A10 + gigabyte mobo (forgot sorry)
    2 ~ Intel Core i3 4150 + H81 mobo

    @keikox

    nakita ko na yan pero parang wala PSU ko jan :(



    ~ as of now planning to try another PSU, pero as of now wala pa ko spare PSU, yung sa office na CM Thunder M 450w try ko siguro.. I also tried yung C6/C7 state i-disable daw? pero no luck.

    I'm really confused if PSU or MOBO may sala dito eh.. kinda weird. once kasi na naka boot ka na.. stable na.. as in no problem at all. -_-
  • @neesnu

    pwedeng reason dyan is malamang kinukulang na sa boltahe psu mo sa pagbigay dun sa haswell system. im not 100% sure pero possible na yan ang issue mo.

    kung titingnan naman natin sa kabilang banda eh parang imposible kasi gumagana sa lower end systems yung unit mo. yung 12v rail siguro baka kinakapos kaya di makapagboot up sa haswell system.
  • @netxzero

    pero weird... since it can boot my Gigabyte Z77X-UP5TH + 3570k with no problem? ~ and all system has 750Ti on them, even a GTX 670..

    ~ para kasing imposible na kapusin.. kahit board + 4690k + 1 ram lang nakakabit? just to boot lang..

    ~ bale ang fix para maka boot ako and makapasok sa windows.. spam yung clear CMOS.. after a couple of clear CMOS papasok na sa bios. /sigh
  • @neesnu

    The article that you read as well specifically stated the same symptoms of the problem you have - 'Haswell's sleep power draw is substantially lower than that of previous generations, and it can trigger some PSUs' under-voltage protection and force a system reset.'

    Main concern mo ngayon diyan siguro is why the hell the C6/C7 disabled state is not working in your motherboard.
  • @xkeikox

    My thoughts exactly.. salamat bro.. will try to explore it more.. will post results here.. para na din sa makaka experience pa nito.. Thanks! if all else fail.. palit PSU :v haha! salamat..
  • @neesnu

    weird nga talaga and kung disable naman yung c6/c7 mo state mo then that should not be a problem. nararamdaman kong kelangan magpalit ng psu dyan hehehe
  • @neesnu

    You're welcome. Also, consider mo din siguro muna mag bios update motherboard - who knows baka gumana yung disabled state ng c6/c7 bigla di ba. Ingat lang din sa pag flash if you will.
  • @keikox

    latest BIOS na eh.. haha.. I tried flashing it also.. no luck.. same with disabling C6/C7 State :( ...weird case ahaha..
  • mga boss ok ba na PSU yung thermaltake?
  • baaaaadtreeep nasunog elesi ng fan ng PSU ko, hindi sya generic.

    na overheat ata pero working pa , may namuuong sunog lang dun sa fan kaya ayaw umikot,

    hays bibili na lang ako ng bago risky kasi kya i need new one.

    Ano best budget PSU para sa budget na less 2k?

    thank you, i3 + gtx 750 lang ung rig ko :D
