Pretty cheap power supply, great for budget builds. Reliable brand. I need more words
Fyi: it is a desktop computer ATX Power supply 🙂
EVGA BV Series 450W Power Supply,
80 PLUS Bronze,
120mm Sleeve Bearing Fan,
1x EPS, 2x PCI-E,
4x SATA, 3x Molex
OEM: HEC (I don't think I've heard/used this one before)
Although, who was really expecting a Superflower or Seasonic for $29?
HEC have been around for a long time they make decent PSUs. Not top tier but far from bad
Fyi, buy 7 and get free delivery…
System Builders (:
These are a good choice if you need 12v @ 15a or so for lots of LEDs. Much more reliable than most cheap 12v power supplies, and won't get as hot.
Does 35A according to specs, though it will be most efficient at around 50% load.
As long as you have high-amperage rated connectors as well!
I was originally using simple barrel jacks and they started to let out the magic smoke… Swapped to Anderson plugs instead with bundled cables (at least 4 for good current capacity) and I'm set.
Great deal. had one in a computer and it's worked well for 5+ years no issues.
Do want to mention if there is one part in your PC Build NOT to cheap out on, it's this.
Except this is a really good psu and it's cheap. Go for it imo. It'll be fine for any GPU up to an RTX 3060 Ti, assuming your CPU is around 100w.
U/crazybargainhunter is working a quiet shift as a bartender in a bar until a dictionary, an encyclopedia, and a thesaurus walks. U/insanedealpredator takes one look at them and quips, “What is this—a jest, mockery, target practice, repartee, facetiousness, drollery, banter, or a knee-slapper?”
Edit: good deal! Bad joke 🤪
Does this have mustard color cables?
They are my favorite
Absolute banger deal, fine for most mid range rigs (up to eg. Ryzen 5 5600x + RTX 3070). Solid deal
How is this so cheap yet support some decent builds?
A lot of people vastly overestimate how much power their rigs actually draw
Yes unless you have a massive gaming rig with a 3070 most systems would barely draw 200W.
I'm not sure why some people even have 1500W PSUs for - let alone afford the energy bill if you were constantly using 1500W.
I see thanks
So true, and bc PSU efficiency reduces harshly below ~20% load a really high wattage PSU ends up being way less efficient while idling or during lighter loads too…
I see yeah, seeing how as this is so cheap would it be a good idea to buy this now if I wanted to build a PC maybe around next year?
Yes, it has 3 years warranty so even if you let it sit around for a year there would be plenty warranty left
@seoul: Oh I was asking more for whether this PSU would be still viable for like a budget-midrange PC build in a year's time
@monkeyoutlet: Depends on the specs, I just randomly plugged in these specs in a PSU calculator: an i9 RTX 3070 32GB RAM 512 SSD 1TB HDD would pull 460W
A decent branded 550W-600W PSU with 80+ efficiency would run those specs
This EVGA unit is doing 420W so would be able to handle a midrange budget PC assuming you're well under those specs
Morning coffee and $30 splash at ozbargain.
Would think this is handy to have around just in case.
Cracker deal. Ordered 15
Thanks OP! A great power supply at an exceptional price (especially for system builders). Reputable Brand. 450W. 80+ Bronze. 2x 6+2pin PCI-E. Love it! Bought 7x for Free Shipping :)
Good for a 3d printer build?
Always good to have a spare PS.
Ordered one for pick up in Vic… will have to wait for them to get it in, but that's fine with me. Good deal, thanks OP.
This deal comes to $46 for me including delivery. Would I be better off buying this one for $49 delivered?
Depends if you want efficiency or a high power output
Power output is not the main issue, the 450w EVGA is quite sufficient for my needs. I'm just wondering which is the better power supply? They're both about the same price so I might as well buy the better quality one.
EVGA. The one you have linked is only a 80+ white
@CrazyBargainCatcher: Thanks, I'll grab one then.
Got mine yesterday.. Not bad. but nothing special. The sleeve fan makes an annoying whirring noise so might be a part worth replacing once the warranty finishes. If your other components are noisy you might not notice it as much. For what I paid it was good value, but at RRP prices you'd be better off paying a little bit more and getting something better, or with a half-decent fan at the least.
