    Well, my venerable 10yr old PSU has given the bucket a swift old kick.

    So recommendations on a replacement that is -

    cheap
    at least semi-modular [captive 24-pin/EPS 8-pin is fine]
    not made of depleted chinesium and/or 'splodium

    Is your GPU bus powered? Because I have a modular 750W PSU with no PCI-E cables.

    Yours for postage, if it'll get you up and running.

    If it's a Be Quiet I have cables left over when mine died if they're compatible.

    No it's a Novatech Power Station 750W Black edition.

    It's 80 plus certified and does that fan over-run thing for a couple of minutes after you shutdown.

    If anyone know who manufactures Novatech's PSUs, maybe it's possible to get spare cables for it.

    Having a PSU let go and taking the entire PC with it will do that to you. Tbh there were a couple times I thought this one had done it [and i'm not sure it didn't kill my last GPU],

    I'm well aware of that, but my PC doesn't have a dGPU atm, it's running off the CPU's IGP. hence 'what gpu?'.

    This one was powering a 7700K and 1080ti but the pcie cables got misplaced/accidentally thrown out.

    I fully understand the caution though :)

    QFT

    Thankfully my PSU took one for the team.

    Stank to buggery though.

    Great PSU. It was the same one OCZ used to use for their 750w Fatal1ty range. There should be a JonnyGuru review kicking around somewhere, as I used it when I bought my OCZ.

    Smells like smouldering HDD PCB, certain to lift the mood at any house party:thumb:
