    PSU Question

    is a 'Q Technology' ATX-1125BTA QT 300 Watt PSU any good? and will it be fine powering an nforce2 mobo with amd Barton processor? or should i think more seriously about 350-400W power these days?

    QTEC - stay away. But a 350watt Enermax from www.Scan.co.uk instead.

    http://www.qtechnology.net/qt01300/feat.html <-- yep different company, looking at the specs / images these look very much like rebadged Enhance PSU's which are extremly good PSU's, so if you dont plan to overclock / add loads of hard drives then the 300 Watt unit should be fine.

    Hi all,

    Tbh, I have a "dreaded" QTEC 550W, and I have had no problems what so ever (all readings on all rails are good).
    Depends what you are putting in your system really?
    If you have the money, go for an Antec True 330/430. These have dedicated outputs on rails etc and are of high build quality.

    Hope this helps.

    Please note: It has come to our attention that another company called "Q-Tec" has recently entered the market and is causing confusion by offering low cost PSUs in competition with Q Technology. Please be certain that neither Q Technology nor Quiet PC have any connection whatsoever with Q-Tec. We know several instances of customer being disappointed with the quality and noise level of Q-Tec PSUs only to find out later that the product they had bought was not made by Q Technology. If you are not buying directly from Quiet PC, please make sure you know what you are buying, and if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is!
