Fully modular 700-800 watt

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a power supply that is 100% modular.

I know generally speaking corsair, silverstone and seasonic are best right?


so far I've seen the seasonic 750watt power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151087&Tpk=seasonic

but it seems to have a coil whine issue. something I am not looking for at all.

I need something 700watts but nothing over 800 really.

Thanks. +rep for some help smile.gif?

Any of these will do: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341052&cm_sp=Cat_Power_Supplies-_-Spotlight-_-17-341-052

The seasonic unit is fine. Also, there are many great units that aren't "fully" modular. Corsair HX750, Antec HCP750, NZXT Hale 750 to name a few.

I'd recommend the Corsair 750ax. It matches your criteria, and Corsair customer service is amazing.

They relate to the efficiency of the power supply at different load %s. Here is a link to check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_PLUS

A gold rated power supply is obviously more efficient than a bronze rated power supply.

The difference is how efficiently they deliver the rated power. Bronze should be 82-85%, silver 85-87% and gold 88-91% (I think). I also second the Corsair AX750. They are the same unit as the seasonic X750. It comes with better cables and a longer warranty. Corsair also has great customer service.

No, the best value fully modular now are probably OCZ ZT series linked earlier, barring the sometime huge rebates on Lepa G (Enermax Modu87+).

Under $100 shipped before rebate:

For fully modular and top performance, you're looking for Corsair AX (Seasonic X) though. I mention Corsair since their customer support is good, and you're going to want to rely on them for an RMA if you get a sample with worse coil whine.
