    Budget offering ng Fractal ang Integra M series. Mura pero cheap din yung components na gamit (especially the capacitors, Teapo). Better go for another PSU kung may ibang options naman diyan.

    Yup, mas okay yang Enermax Revo X't compared sa Fractal Integra M. Kung wala talagang mahanap ng Seasonic diyan, go for the Revo X't.

    Seasonic S12II-520 ang kunin mo, dagdagan mo na lang ng around Php200 yung budget. Sobra-sobra na yan for your planned rig. The best rin ang local warranty niyan, 5 years, and mabilis lang yung RMA process kung sakaling magkaproblema yung unit.

    Sa AVR naman, backread ka sa AVR thread: <click here for link>.
  • @Helly

    salamat sir mukhang sakto na nga sakin yun since wala naman ako plano mag SLi at mag OC,
    mag Seasonic ako magaganda nga ang feedbacks na nababasa ko,
  • ey guys need a second opinion

    initially I was looking at FSP's 750W Aurum
    since 5k lang sana budget ko for a new PSU
    but now I'm a bit torn between:

    1. staying within my budget and go with the FSP Aurum 750W
    or
    2. go over-budget and choose between FSP Aurum Pro 850W and Seasonic X-750

    ubos ang 13th mo. with option 2 LOL

    I've been a lurker in this thread for a while
    so I know that I don't need that much power
    I just want to (as they say) future-proof my rig
    and go SLi once budget permits

    Even a 650W PSU is more than enough for a GTX 980 SLI setup.

    Oks na Seasonic M12II-620 EVO unless you really want an 80Plus Gold-rated unit in which case just go for the X-650.

    Pero kung malaki yung chance na single-GPU setup lang ang mangyayari in the near future, ayos na ang Seasonic G-550. Sapat na yan for a GTX 980-equipped rig.
  • Newbie Question po plan to build ITX, tanong ko po kung anung PSU ang mas fit dito sa Asus J1900I-C??

    Salamat.
