Had no clue that NZXT made good PSU's though, is it actually them or do they just rebadge?

EDIT:

Also, say I went over the limit on my future Seasonic, would it shut off before any damage was done to the components?
I'm not a PSU guy, but this is what I found:

Aha - that's why it's a good performing unit. Superflower's best platform to date is responsible, the exact same platform we saw with the Kingwin Lazer Gold. Only this time, we're at a power level that keeps the ripple in much better control.
So I guess Superflower makes them for NZXT or at least the basic platform.

And yes, your PSU would shut down if you connected too many things. Modern PSU's have OCP (over current protection) and such.

Scroll down to Power consumption.

It'll be powering all the necessities and a 2500K.
This Power Supply will not handle your setup.

Yes, and OC to your heart's content.

The same PSU is also sold as the Antec High Current Gamer 620W, and a slightly cost-down (but still very good) version is sold as the Antec NeoECO 620C.

That's a great psu... I've got it.


It looks nice, and I've never ever heard the fan spin up (even with the i7 @ 3.8 and the gts 450 at 933 core)

I can't comment on your situation however

Thanks again. Nice post on ageing dual cores by the way (you deserve so much more rep for that), though its almost too bad you weren't able to chuck in a few more.

Thanks! Yeah, would've been nice, but non-employed teens have a low budget for testing...

Well, if it heats up, the fan should spin up a bit more, but you do realize that the hotter the PSU gets, the worse it performs, right? It's generally not a problem in cases with good airflow, but if it's your only exhaust, it could cost you some efficiency.

EDIT: And please tone down the +rep spam, someone might think I'm boosting it with a second account... >.>

I know exactly how you feel, PC gaming is an expensive hobby as it is.

EDIT: Sorry about that, Its just that so man of my posts that I feel I should get rep for go unrewarded, so I make sure I hand out rep whenever it is deserved.

And no it isn't my only exhaust, but I'll be downsizing to a case with a top mounted PSU and yeah, I'd prefer it if it was running all the time. Shouldn't be a big deal though.

Yeah, I didn't mean to discourage you, it's just all that rep in such a small amount of time.

As has been said, that SeaSonic 620 W would power that rig.

An S12II 620W is MORE than ample for a pair of HD6970s. 750W for piece of mind is just spending money you could spend elsewhere for greater benefit.
