Seasonic X-850 vs BeQuiet P9 850 - Page 2  

post #11 of 27
OP you should have gotten the X850, heck you could've ran your system off a 750W PSU and had plenty left over.

I have 5 high quality PSU's

1 seasonic
3 antecs
1 Enermax

I have never heard the fan on any, buying a psu because it says quiet in the name is ridiculous.

His rig can run comfortably on a 500-550w.

They're both on the same platform, except the AX850 = Seasonic X-860. Still, they're 99% identical.

They're pretty much identical. Unless you have an aesthetical preference for the SeaSonic unit, I tend to recommend getting the Corsair over it. It's often cheaper than the SeaSonic equivalent, and it has a 7-year warranty whereas SeaSonic's warranty is 5 years. I do like the way the actual SeaSonic unit looks better than the Corsair. Also the Corsair has those flat modular cables which everybody seems in love with.

and that 1% is the different sticker on the outside. (warranty too)

I'm not going to deny that, OP just seemed like he wanted an 850W unit for some reason.

btw the seasonic only runs the fan when needed... so quieter than the BQ i dont know.. right now im using my gf's x650 to run my sandy bridge 2600k and my 6990 on a ud7 board... and while playing a video game all i see is the fan spin up for like 2 seconds and die down...

for example right now... fan is completely stopped...

I take it many of you dont know the brand BeQuiet!

BeQuiet! and Enermax, are the top dogs brands in Germany. And the BeQuiet! P9 series, have some of the lowest ripple seen on any highend PSU.

And I checked the internet, the BeQuiet is more silent than the Seasonic x.
