CM Silent Pro Gold 1000W VS Corsair HX1000

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I have 2 psu ... Corsair HX1000 and cooler master silent pro gold 1000w (I got it as a replacement for an old 500w psu )

I have to get rid of one of them, which one to keep and which one to sell ??

I would keep the Corsair. I have had several of their PSUs and they were all beasts. All of mine were very underrated by corsair. My TX650 put out just over 750 and ran like a champ.

Agreed. I believe the hx line has a 7 year warranty. Keep the Corsair.

Keep the Silent Pro Gold, the HX is an outdated design with poor efficiency and some other issues(search for 24p melted connectors), the Silent Pro Gold isn't the best 1Kw PSU out there but it is a very solid one, with excellent efficiency and pretty well behaved noise wise.

Considering you're running hardware that almost never loads the PSU to 50% that's not an accomplishment, and it's actually a pretty poor approach when you think how badly the efficiency slips below 20% load on that HX1000, and that's where you are when browsing/streaming/downloading/etc
