Re: Alternators MIRAGE BNISB OR opened/complete for trade

err, a new brand name PSU isn't huge coin

$41.99, im getting one from canada computers after work:
Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 460W Power Supply (RS-460-PMSR-A3)

And before you start typing: "thats crap!"

  • Thermaltake Purepower 430 W: costs the same thing but has a worse efficiency and canít deliver 430 W (during our tests we could only pull up to 350 W from this Thermaltake unit), while eXtreme Power Plus 460 W can.
  • Seventeam ST-420BKV: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 460 W is also better than this unit, as it provides a higher efficiency and an auxiliary power cable for video cards.
  • Kingwin ABT-450MM: Can deliver more power than the reviewed power supply, but on the other hand this model from Cooler Master has over power protection (OPP), feature not found on this model from Kingwin.
  • Huntkey Green Star 450 W: Canít deliver more than 360 W, even though it presents a higher efficiency than the reviewed unit. Doesnít have over power protection and exploded when we try pulling 450 W from it.
  • Zalman ZM360B-APS: See how things are funny. This model from Zalman can deliver more power than this model from Cooler Master model, even though it is labeled as a 360 W unit. The problem is that this unit from Zalman doesnít have an over power protection circuit. This model from Zalman presented a higher efficiency but it is more expensive (USD 63) than this model from Cooler Master.
  • Corsair VX450W: A terrific product, better than the reviewed power supply. It can deliver more power, has far better efficiency, has lower noise level, has all protections but costs the double.
In summary, the only real flaw from this product considering its price range is its wrong label; this power supply should be sold as a 430 W unit. Nonetheless we think this is a good product for the average user that doesnít need a lot of power and wants to save money.

was just thinking if someone had one lying around from an upgrade, then I'd take that at par.

cheers dude!
