Corsair or Thermaltake

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a few remaining pieces to buy to finalize my build and a PSU is one of them. I have read many reviews and watched many videos and narrowed it down to 2 which give me what I am looking for. However I am looking for that last little bit info. and opinions before hitting the buy button. The 2 PSU's I am considering are:

CORSAIR Professional Series AX1200
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Corsair%201200

or

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand TPG-1200M
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153145

Thanks!

If you buy the Corsair I'll buy you tacos.

Okay, not really. But I will help you out if you have technical problems of any sort.

corsair's a high quality seasonic unit, plus has better warranty at a lower cost. Choice is simple

The AX1200 is better out of those two, but I'd get a HCP-1200 over both of them. The 100A single rail on the AX1200 is a bit silly.

Flextronics, not Seasonic.
