CiT 750W PSU
on 31 August 2011
In a nutshell: Fantastic PSU for a really nice price.
I bought this for my new gaming computer I was building and it's pretty much everything I needed. This is a really good price for a 750W PSU. I was initally looking a 1,000W unit but the price jump is quite significant so I settled on this.
The connections are as follows:
-20+4 Pin (for motherboard)
-4 Pin (for motherboard)
-4 Sata (For optical drives and HDDs)
-1 6pin PCI-Express (for graphics card)
-4 Molex (Fans and other things)
-2 Floppy (does anyone actually use these anymore?)
I had one issue when installing but it wasn't really the fault of the PSU. My graphics card required two 6Pin connectors and this PSU only had one. Luckly my card came with a converter cable to convert two of the molex connectors into a 6Pin PCI-Express connector (you can buy similar cables for a couple of quid of amazon). You can free up your molex connectors by stacking your chassis fans on a single molex if need be.
If you're planning on running two graphics cards and lots of hard drives and optical drives, you might want to go for something bigger with more connections.
But generally this 750W PSU will be suited to the vast majority of computers.
NOVEMBER 2013 UPDATE: So after just over 2 years with no issues the PSU decided to pack it in and stop working. My PC wouldn't boot and it took a while to diagnose the problem because some LEDs on my motherboard were lighting up so clearly the unit was providing some amount of power. But when I swapped in another power supply the PC booted up fine. So there you go folks, I got two years out of this product. I'm not complaining to be honest because it's still really really cheap. For those wondering I am now using a 850W PSU made by a brand called XFX also purchased from Amazon.
