thermaltake or silverstone?

by ferraritt / November 10, 2005 8:43 AM PST

hello, does anyone know which brand makes the best quality power supplies, Thermaltake or Silverstone, the 2 choices i am stuck between right now for my new pc set up is the Silverstone SST-ST65ZF 650W nVidia Certified SLI PSU, and the Thermaltake Silent PurePower W0049RUC 680W PSU, which is better, the thermaltake one cost $188.00 cdn with a 90 days warranty, and the silverstone one cost $195.00 cdn which comes with a 1 year warranty, which do you guys think is a better choice? Since the one with more power cost less, does this mean it is bad quality? Any help would be greatly appreciated :P, thankyou.

BTW, i do notice that one is 650w and the other is 680w, but which one is better with the consideration of quality Silly

After reading many reviews and buyer comments from sources that provide them such as Newegg.com, I ultimately ended up buying the Seasonic S-12 600W. If money is no object, then buy PC Power and Cooling (see URL below).

But before proceeding....I'd check two sources below to determine you're not buying materially more power than you'll realistically need or use. The third URL is a roundup of power supplies put to the test on Tom's Hardware... The Silverstone ST65ZF "passed" the torture test but was summarized as 'loud and inefficient'. .

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
