Default FSP300-60GLN Replacement

Hi all....i am a newbie at psu issues. Here is a link to the specs of the psu that died...it seems to be discontinued. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104031

I found two possible alternatives but don't know how to compare them to the original or each other to know which one is better, or if there is another better option out there. They are the only hits for my fsp300-60gln google search. The first one lists that it is a 550W option instead of the original 300W. Is this possible? tnx in advance!

The FSP300-60GLN just a standard ATX Power Supply, so you can replace it with any power supply on the market. There's nothing special at all about that model. Something like a Seasonic G-360 or S12II Bronze 380 would do you just fine. Both of those are much higher quality units than the original FSP

Default What about ATX2 and Amps?

Hey, thanks for the reply. To be a bit more specific, the psu I'm replacing shows it's an ATX2.0. I believe that refers to 12V 2 as opposed to 12V 2.2 or 2.3.

What I'm not sure about is that lots of ATX psu's seem almost the same except for some of the power rating, and I'm not sure if these indicate permissable ranges or if I have to match them exactly.

Eg., the one you suggested has power of 360W and not the 300W orig. It has +3.3V@12A, +5V@16A, +12V@30A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2A compared to my +3.3V@20A, +5V@20A, +12V@16A, -12V@0.5A, +5VSB@2.5A..etc. So the amperages are higher on my original.

I was actually looking at this SPI unit but again, the amps seem to be a bit different.

None of that matters. The rating is simply the maximum it can handle. It is perfectly fine to replace a PSU with a different wattage to the original.

That SPI unit will work fine, and so will the Seasonic ones I suggested. The Seasonics are higher quality units, though.
