I’ve seen poor quality power supplies fail in spectacular ways.
In my years of IT work, the smell of burnt plastic from cheap power supplies dying was all too common.
For the fortunate ones, only the PSU was toast. For others, it took the motherboard with it.
It can be tempting to grab a $40 power supply and use the extra cash toward a better graphics card or bigger solid state drive.
Don’t do it!
It’s absolutely worth it to spend a little extra for quality when it comes to your power source.
Quick Pick: The Corsair RM650x is quiet, reliable, modular, and has plenty of power for most PC’s.
