Finding the right 1200W PSU....help? - Page 3

post #21 of 46
My vote is off to the AX1200. 7 year warranty, one hell of a power supply and fully modular.

But, how's the warranty? Is it cheaper than the AX even with the current promotions?

That's the second vote for the Antec. Just so I know , what makes it better?

I see the Corsair has a 20+4 pin , and the Antec has a standard 24 pin.....what is the deal with the two piece plug on the corsair?

Also...Antec has 1 - 12V rail , and the Corsiar has 8 - 12V rails......still dn't get this.

Corsair also has 16 sata connections , where the Antec has 12. But i also see the Antec has a lot more different variations on the plugs on the back compared to the corsair. And both seem close to the same price , with the corsair having a $20.00 rebate.

Also....not ruling out these 850w - 1000w psu's either. They are sure cheaper to.

antec tested the hcp 1200 with this just to see what it can do

the hpc 1200 also has more more pci cables 8 as opposed to the ax1200's 6

the 20+4 or 24 pin is irrelavent

the ax1200 is fully modular where as the hcp is mostly modular

the ax1200 has a 7 year warranty and the hcp has 5 years

The HCP-1200 has tighter +12V regulation (less change in voltage over load) than the AX1200, and lower ripple/noise (15-20mV, vs 30-35mV for the AX1200). Antec's customer service is about as good as Corsair's.

Only downside to the HCP-1200 is it isn't fully modular (they couldn't make it fully modular, due to how cramped the innards are) and it has a 5 year warranty instead of 7. But with these PSUs 5-7 years is the middle of the bathtub curve anyway; well past the initial DOAs and early failures, and well before they start failing due to old age.

Hmm??.....I better think on this one for a day or so. I do want a fully modular psu because I'm tired of trying to hide all these extra cables and so forth.Both the Antec and Corsair seem like an awesome PSU.

I have the Antec 1200w and I'm using all the attached cables, and not one modular one.

The 24pin, two 8pin cpus, 4 pci-e( one cable springs into two 6+2 pin pci-E ), so two cables there for two GTX480s.

One cable for Sata peripherals and one cable for 4pin power, like my fans.

So 7 cables that are attached to the psu that I actually use.

When you need a 1.2Kw PSU you will use all the attached cables of the HCP, and it's the better PSU.

Thing is guys , like I posted in my original post was , I was looking for something completely modular. Obviously I want horse power in my rig , but I also want "looks". With the mod cables , I can get them re-sleeved to the colors I'm trying to go for. I have this certain build and look I'm shooting for. Those antecs seem like an awesome PSU , but with hard wired cables , I'm defeating what I'm trying to shoot for. The cables that I want to re-sleeve are the main 24 pin , sata cables to the drives , cards ect. I know it seems misc to some.

It seems that most of the corsair psu's are 100% modular , and that is kind of what I am shooting for. But I'm really digging the specs on that antec as well.
