Do you have you a question about the Powercool 550W High Efficiency Modular Power Supply?

Q: does this come with the cables? Would it work with a GTX 1060 3GB and a i7?
Answer by Website User on 17th October 2017
This PSU would work with those parts and the wattage is fine, although we'd recommend a higher quality unit for a system like that. Something from Corsair, EVGA, or Cooler Master PSUs as examples.

Answer by CCL on 10th May 2013
Whilst this power supply contains all the connectors required for your system and is powerful enough, we cannot find information confirming the amperage on the 12V rail - your graphics card requires a relatively high 32-34A. Therefore we would not recommend this power supply - a higher quality supply, such as the OCZ ZS 550W would be a better choice as that supports up to 38A on the 12V rail. -MR

Q: will this power suply run what i have now? amd phenom 965 3.4ghz gtx 550ti i did have a 400watt powersuply which has broken so will this be able to run my system?
Answer by CCL on 1st February 2012
Unfortunately this brand of power supply would not be sufficient for your items, I would personally recommend CCL Code PSU0202 or PSU1207 whilst the wattage may be lower the quality of them supersedes the powercool power supplies.

Answer by CCL on 12th December 2011
Whilst a better brand than CIT and Winpower, I would not reccomend one for the system you have, I would recommend at least something like : http://www.cclonline.com/product/42175/OCZ600SXS2-UK/Power-Supplies/OCZ-StealthXstream-II-600W-Power-Supply/PSU1206/ Or http://www.cclonline.com/product/18317/OCZ500MXSP-UK/Power-Supplies/500W-OCZ-ModXStream-Pro-Modular-Power-Supply/PSU1078/ as they have better support from

If the fan rattles your PSU is most likely faulty, if the fan is not performing as it should then there is a risk your PSU will become too hot when loaded and break. Please contact our customer services team and we will be happy to help you with your PSU. - Tom.
Website User on 16th February 2015
crappy, don't buy it, the power is a peak rating, The fan rattles too. CCL should list this in the product specifications but would rather scam you.
