Hi guys Building a NAS box, i was looking at the be quiet pure power l8 3oow for my system, this is my current config

permalink http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/gpwyrH

However have just noticed this gem https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-001-SF&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=2462

Is it any good? its 80+ bronze and tier 2 but its so cheap which worries me

any experience or recomendations

ALSO XFX TS430 is on the table but is only 80+ bronze

You gotta post the permalink or bb markup code table, that "partslist" link just takes everyone to the current build they're working on.

That super flower sounds ok as per this review (google translate via realhardx psu database) - http://translate.google.com/translate?depth=1&hl=es&rurl=translate.google.es&sl=de&tl=en&u=http://www.computerbase.de/2014-05/super-flower-golden-green-hx-350w-netzteil-test/

I'm partial to seasonic psus usually, but their 360w gold unit is almost 60 quid tho... - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ssr360gp

Thank you will update with permalink :)

The XFX TS is seasonic made so would that be better than the super flower,

I'm willing to give up 80+ gold to 80+ bronze if the psu is better

The super Flower was just the cheapest 80+ gold i saw

looked on toms hardware the Super Flower is a tier 2, so would it be worth it?

That super flower model looks to be ok as per the review I mentioned, I've never used anything they've made but I'd prolly be inclined to give it a shot if the seasonic is too spendy.

Seasonic bronze or golden flower gold... I'm usually a seasonic guy through and through but given the low power draw nature of the build (psu will not be under a heavy load in other words) I'd give the gf a shot.

Yes, Superflower doesn't make any crappy psu's and its plenty of wattage.

In your opinion is it worth the extra £10 over the XFX?

I would just get which ever one is the cheapest, the XFX or the Superflower psu.

The xfx is £10 cheape but only bronze the Superflower is gold, but XFX has higher watts for increase later to like xeon and gpu

The difference between bronze and gold ratings is around 5-6% So if saving a couple dollars on your power bill is worth it too you, then do it.

-No guarantee that you will save money with a gold rated psu.

Will save the £10 now lol a few extra watts on my electric bill will be fine

The system won't draw that muxh really

The extra watts on the xfx will also allow a xeon or gpu and a lot more drives to be added
