Kingwin LZG-850 or Corsair CMPSU-850AX

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So my 750watt Corsair just gave out on me this afternoon and I just received my Fractal Design XL. I'm on the fence between these two PSU's. The Corsair is fully modular but costs about $50 more, most people I know buy corsair because its a really well known brand. I've heard good things about the Kingwin but I want to know if anybody has bad experiences with customer service or the PSU itself. Its semi modular with a few cables hard wired directly into the PSU but it has a LED fan and some special sleeving on the cables. I'm going to be sleeving the cables on my own in the future and I would also like to know if its going to be a hassle to remove the cable casings.

Here are the links to both PSU's:

Also if there anyother good reliable PSU's sub $200 that are fully modular please feel free to recommend them!

Kingwin Lazer Gold are using SuperFlower's Golden Green platform. They're good. btw, what do you need 850W for? I hope you're at least looking at SLI GTX 580 with an 8-core Bulldozer in your future.

A good fully-modular PSU under $200 would be the Silverstone Strider Plus units, except the 500W variant (a different FSP design, while the rest are Enhance). The 850W is going for $140 on NCIX:

The Kingwin is a very good unit. The Corsair is a little better, is more modular, and has better customer service, but $50 is a fair amount of money. Your call.

Of course, you could run three 5870s on your current PSU, so you don't really need an upgrade.
