    Default PSU for my Mainboard

    I have an ASRock M3A785GMH/128M mainboard, and am wanting to know if a Aywun 750W MEGA POWER Elite Series 80PLUS Certified Power Supply is compatible with my mainboard. Here is a link to the PSU product: http://www.extremepc.co.nz/index.php...oducts_id=4371

    Thank you.

    It looks like it is an older, el cheapo, "no name" power supply.
    Have you found any comprehensive reviews for this brand or model from any of the best power supply review sites?

    The power supply is the foundation of your system and it needs to provide clean, stable power for your system.
    It's best if you look for a major name brand power supply that is highly rated by the best review sites, such as JonnyGuru, HardOCP, HardwareSecrets, PCPER, BenchmarkReviews or TechPowerUp. Most of these sites don't review 240 volt models very often, but I suggest buying a psu "made" by Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX.

    There are many name brand power supplies that aren't very good.

    Fill out the information at eXtreme Power Supply Calculator to see what size power supply will be best for your system. For maximum efficiency, you want a power supply that will run most of the time using about 40 - 60% of the true rated power.
    Spending a little more for an 80 PLUS bronze or better psu can save you money in the long run.
    A high quality power supply will often be reliable and last for five years or longer.

    Check this out: http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/psu...50W_Report.pdf

    No name in the western hemisphere but did have its psu tested in the 80+ labs which gives it some credibility. That is how I bought my present FSP 600w psu which is 80+ bronze, another non-popular or much used/heard of brand via Directron or e-bay. Funny thing was that it was one of the cheapest bronze certified 600w psus a couple of years ago costing me around $60usd freight included. I then saw it at $110 or more 6 mo. down the road!

    Gabriel T. of Hardwaresecrets recommends checking these certificates to make sure you are not getting stiffed or at least lower the possibilities. Surprisingly, even "name-brand" psus, which btw are made by 3rd party companies, vary a lot in quality, depending on the technology used or the particular manufacturer that produced them. I have had a couple of bad cases with name-brand psus which goes to show you that the only way to hedge your bad luck is research, research and research.

    Here in Mexico Aywun would have gotten the nickname: Ayayay! Nope, never seen or heard of one down here.
