Hi guys, Tim here bringing you a quick post about power supplies.
When I'm building a new PC, there are two things i like to future proof. These are the case and PSU.
Choosing the right power supply is very important during initial construction. You need to find something that wont burn out and will be able to power everything you throw at it and more.
Brands: Brand name plays a big role in deciding which power supply you should get. Buying a generic PSU could lead to disastrous results. some of the brand names I trust are: Thermaltake, Corsair and Coolermaster. There are some more less known brands that produce fine PSUs, however, research should be conducted before choosing these brands.
Power: Wattage plays a big role in future proofing or in power hungry rigs. Making sure you have what you need is imperative especially in multi GPU systems.
Modular design: A modular designed power supply can be very helpful for people working with small cases. Power supplies with large wattage tend to clog up cases with too many cables. Being able to remove these cables when appropriate cuts down on clutter and avoids decreasing airflow.
If you have your own say on power supplies or would like to mention other brands you have please leave a comment.
