Power Supply - PSU Enermax EG495-AX Compatible

Call me lazy folks.

I had an Enermax EG-495AX PSU in my computer which has stopped working. The new one costs about £80 which isn't worth for the computer so I am wanting to find a cheaper alternative to enermax PSU.

Please note the replacement should have all the functions as above because my logic board has special connections.
Any links to ebay with the valid PSU will help.

thanks

I dont see that it has anything special other than a standard set of PSU connections, certainly nothing that such as http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-042-OK&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=1709 has ?

This seller is on UK ebay and has a range of power supplies that will suit you, but this appears to suit your needs.

The thing you'll miss from the Enermax is the fan monitor lead which runs the system fans for a few minutes after shutdown, aprt from that and the super lead shiedling it really is just an ATX PSU (but with a fantastic  pedigree).  I guess it's no longer in warranty?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

yes it is out of warranty.  I have been looking at some other atx PSU's but they were lacking Sata Connections and connections for the logic board for POWER. I will compare your suggestions with the Enermax and update you all.

cheers guys

The sata connections are not an issue, as the adaptors to convert to SATA are cheap and readily available.
Most of my suppliers in Australia that build systems for me generally give them away, as they always have excess with each machine they build that came with the motherboard.

agree with @PirtatePete about the SATA connector, for what its worth almost every country has them for cheap.. they are £1 or so in the UK from my local retailer.

ohh okay. that will help for definite. so in theory, I should be able to buy any atx power supply that hasn't got any Sata connectors or sata power module and should be able to convert into one. am I right ?

Yes.. they are sold all over the place the name is usually 'molex -> sata convertor, or cable'
