Cooler Master is not a reliable PSU brand. Get something from a better manufacturer. Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, and PC Power And Cooling are generally safe bets.


He already changed it to an Antec psu.


Isn't that Antec Earthwatt 650W Green the one infamous for bursting into flame?


hm, I don't see anything online about it. I already ordered it so I hope not D:

I ended up going with the 650 watt platinum Antec PSU. The rest were out of stock.

Wrong move on the PSU. The Cooler Master V700 was better. It's made by Seasonic and it's extremely high quality.
That's what you get for paying attention to brand fanboys...

To temper my above statement, the EA-650 Platinum is a good unit, too. Depends how much you paid for it, I guess. If it was about the same as the CM V700, then I guess it doesn't matter much.

I think it was $10 more =(. Honestly though, as long as it gets the job done and doesn't burst into flames I'm alright with it.
