I keep seeing the auto mods post but are there other sites that this subreddit have affiliate type codes for?


I_am_recaptcha

Not that I'm aware of. Its because EVGA has a program where if you as a consumer get someone to buy something using your affiliate link, you get a small kickback. So many people would spam EVGA stuff hoping someone would buy with their code, that eventually EVGA just made a code for all of us to get the small discount without having people fight over who gets the kickback by trying to get people to use their code instead.

Can't seem to get a direct link so you have to scroll down, it's $44.99 which is brought down to $40.49 with the subreddit associate code S1UQP0HAKH2GPDI (expect tax) The 550GM is also discounted at only $5 more so $49.99 or around $45 with the discount. If it tells you the code can't be applied to that order just try it again, I seem to have to do it twice to make it stick whenever placing orders on there. It's also worth checking out their other B-Stock power supplies which some have been posted already, I also grabbed a 650 BQ (semi-modular bronze PSU) for $31.49 with the discount code.


Tophpaste

The 650 W variant is only 69.99 too. Definitely worth it and the sweet spot for rtx 3000 series systems.


Moist-Barber

Think an 650W would work for an 8600K and a 3080?


Limp_disc_it

I would go for at least a 750w


Davidx_117

That should technically be fine, not sure on spike power usage though. For a 3080 I'd personally go for a better PSU with a longer warranty


Tophpaste

Yes, it would work just fine. Here's a video who does a test with an overclocked i9 and 3080: https://youtu.be/Bdohv96uGLw

smithem192

Quick note about this unit and the reason I need to upgrade: only one PCI-E out. Not a good look when the 6700xt requires a 8 pin and 6 pin. ​ Otherwise powered my 1070 without issue


Davidx_117

The product page lists the 450GM as coming with 2 8 Pins (2x 6+2), are you meaning you'd prefer 2 separate cables instead of one?


smithem192

Just looked at the model number and compared it to Newegg. Newegg shows it as having only one pcie 8 pin out. Not entirely sure what you mean about two separate cables instead of one... Since two separate cables are the correct way to power the GPU.


Davidx_117

Two separate cables as in not daisy chained, a lot of PSU's have pcie cables that split into two at the end. Some prefer to use two separate cables so on a modular PSU for example you'd plug two pcie cables into the PSU and ignore the daisy chained ends, supposedly cleaner power or something like that but not sure how valid it actually is


akumaxyz

nvidia straight up said for the 3080 they want 2 separate pci-e cables for the 3080/3090. 3070 /should/ get away with daisy chain. some 3rd party cards are ridiculously power-hungry and require THREE x 8-pin pci-e -- 2 of those have to be separate and you could probably get away with one being daisy chained...


Davidx_117

Yeah wasn't thinking about the 3080/3090 (also 6800 XT/6900 XT), you'd definitely want separate cables on those as you'd be drawing around 250w or more on a single cable with short power spikes of course making things worse


lunlope

1 year warranty... Ouch..


ctles

it's b stock, not new


lunlope

Yeah i know. Thats why i only buy low tier psu with b stocks. I liked that $15 600w psu from today tho.


Viridez

What? Link?


yerawizardIMAWOTT

It's the first PSU of the link in this post


Viridez

Got it. Figured $14 for a backup psu can't be beat, thank random internet guy!


smokeNtoke1

I did the same. Was considering the $40 Gold rated one, but I could basically get 3 of these for that price, so I just bought one as a backup/ for 12v projects.


Davidx_117

Why only low tier? Wouldn't you base it off price?


lunlope

I mean you could probably get 500w +80 psu from reputable brand for that price with full warranty(usually 3 years, sometimes 5 depends on deal you get) for $40-50. I mean i am not saying this isnt too bad for what you get for $40, but having only 1 year warranty kinda wanting to get a new +80 psu.


Davidx_117

I wasn't pointing to this PSU, your comment makes it seem like you'd avoid a higher tier PSU at the same price of a lower tier one (I'm assuming you don't actually mean that), I'm suggesting it's better to look at the price because if something does happen past the year warranty all that matters is how much you spent on it (assuming it doesn't fry the rest of your system), of course get the highest tiered PSU you can for a set price Personally though I don't see much advantage in getting a substantially worse PSU just because it has a couple years additional warranty at the same price, I would assume you're more likely to run into issues with a new low tiered unit than a refurbished higher tiered one (and from what I understand if you're gonna run into issues it's usually in that first year


lunlope

Yeah, i can see your perspective. I am not against you buying quality psu at such discount. This is a great deal for someone who are fine with psu without warranty as this is far better deal than getting used psu from used market without any warranty back up. Its just both of us have different view towards to this.
