    where to buy OCZ power supplies in Uk?

    Hello!

    i need an urgent reply of where i can get a good price on the gamexstream 600W PSU in the UK - i cant get onto the resellers page on the OCZ website, it just gives me a blank page.

    i have ordered the FSP 600W PSU, and have now cancelled because of its loudness. i need to get the OCZ quickly - any ideas?!

    thanks in advance!

    but at that price it might be better to go the seasonic route?

    only issue i have with seasonic is that people have reported issues with DFI boards.

    if you definately need that much power youre gonna have to pay for it, the cheapest decent ones are probably the fsp epsilons, or tagan easycons, both of which retail for just under 90 quids.

    yeah but the FSP epsilon are exactly the same as the OCZ gamexstreams as they are made by fsp, but the ocz has a much quieter operation as a different fan.

    i have opteron 165/1gb/3hdd (going to add two more soon) /7800GT/2 pci cards/2 opticals/dfi sli-dr

    and i overclock it.

    is your current one busted? if not, get the s12 drom scan, that way you know you wont have issues returning it if you have a problem with your board

    At those prices I'd definitely get a Seasonic S12 from Scan. The new revisions don't have an issue with DFI boards. Mine runs fine with no issues with my DFI Expert board.

    that link is listed in euros unless you change it so its about the cheapest around... but its from ireland so the postage might knock it up

    there are a lot of psus better than the seasonics but if you really want low noise they are the quietest around and still a good solid psu

    If anyone's interested, the Seasonics came out ahead of OCZ in spcr's review - better efficiency, and quieter by a couple of dB under high loads.
