Which PSU should I use?

  • I bought a new PC on black Friday that comes with a Cougar 600SL PSU. I don't know much about Cougar but a search on google seems to show a mixed reputation. My question is should I use my old PSU from the computer I'm replacing, a 5 year old Corsair 850w? Wattage is estimated at about 400w


  • I would stick with the Corsair as long as it has all the plugs you need, give it a god clean and plug that baby in. (If using caned air for cleaning be sure to use a toothpick or something to prevent the fan from spinning while you spray, letting the fan spin out like that isn't very good for the bearings)
