hi I'm building another build a Mini ITX build it won't use to much as Power as I'm using integrated HD4600 graphics. does anyone know if EVGA power supplies are any good? I'm looking at the EVGA 430w I've been using Corsair Power Supplies for years but i fancy trying something new :thumbup:

I made the move to corsair years ago and never looked back, THEY DONT FAIL and they put out some of the cleanest power available, IMO

Well I have a Corsair 430 that failed on me after a few years. I also have two Corsair 650W still working, you get some good ones and some bad ones as in all things.

I currently have a EVGA 1200W driving my main computer and I think its great, though completely overpowered for what the computer needs but it was incorrectly priced at around £100 ($140). I have to say the quality of the fittings of the EVGA were brilliant. I think they were better than the Corsair 650W but then again they're PSU's, I can't get too excited about them.

I like my EVGA PSU and would buy it again, I think the Corsairs are fine but I also think that as you of down the price scale the quality of ALL of them starts to drop.

For sure not by any means saying corsair is the only option, just for what it is to me, and before this Power Supply which was purchased in 2012 (AX1200wattm ) I had a BFG which I got less than a year out of before BFG filed bankruptcy and it got really good reviews and a Rosewill 750 watt which I got around 6 months out of before it died and fried my MB... Ive been building PC's for nearly 25 years and my first computer was a commodore vic 20 (and probably my favorite) LOL Theres plenty of good component manufacturers but there also some pretty shoddy ones as well, my experience with corsair (at least with the power supply) has been stellar with 0 regrets and just figured Id share it..
