The problem with a single PSU brand - Page 16

Found this. Never heard of the site, and Web of Trust has no ratings for it, there are no reviews, so it's fishy.

Really cheap though.

Not modular either, damn. I really want a modular PSU, to be honest. Got one for my cousin when I built him his rig, and yeah, made alot of things alot easier.

Really hard to find a 750w modular PSU cheaper than Corsairs offering.

Hmm, perhaps this?

ANy thoughts?

All are like 50$ cheaper than Corsairs, but the effciency is going down.

85% of 750 is 637w, so it's not really 750 watts.

How about the XFX ProSeries P1-1000-BELX 1000W platinum? I can't find any reviews for this psu. The total cost of getting this psu is 249.99 on amazon. However, if I buy the SeaSonic Platinum-1000 1000W on newegg the total cost is 291.8925 after taxes and shipping. On amazon I don't have to pay for shipping or taxes so getting the XFX ProSeries 1000W platinum is cheaper. Also the Seasonic psu is out stock.

The XFX is the same I do believe.

Delta Electronics - Antec
FSP - Antec, CoolerMaster, Thermaltake, OCZ, Sparkle Power Inc., BeQuiet

Enermax - Enermax, Lepa, Sapphire
Superflower - Rosewill, NZXT, Kingwin, Xion, Sentey
Great Wall - OCZ, Sparkle Computer Co.
That's unranked by the way. You can't rank manufacturers, really.

I'd like to see everything Sirfa makes.
They've been apart from Sirtec for over 3 years.

They do Thortech (Thortech=GEIL), Enermax (LEPA B850 and NAXN 750), Xclio (I think), don't really know what else.

I'd call the Enermax NAXN & the Thortech Thunderbolt enthusiast grade.

(Pretty sure Thortech Thunderbolt PLUS are made in house and not Sirfa OEMs, but normal Thunderbolts are)

- Smack me if I'm wrong, I'll learn quicker that way!

Two posts apart. Looks like a recommendation is in order?

Confused at above post?

Enermax most likely.

88% @ 100% load? That is awesome. That's 660w @ full load.

The Corsair @ full load would only be 667w, at least if my math is correct.

With a 50$ difference.

With Christmas sales coming, the Enermax could even get like 10-15$ off more, and then it'd be ab absolute must buy. As stupid as it may sound, I'd really like the OP to chime in and say it's a great buy. I trust people who seem obsessive about stuff to know their **** even better than the people who do it professionally.

What?
Thats not what efficiency is referring to.
88% efficient means that is can supply 750w, with an 88% efficiency from the wall.
So, in technicality at 100% load, it should be pulling about 852w from the wall, while supplying 750w to your rig.

The NAXN 82+? ... Meh. CWT PSHII IIRC. The Corsair TX-C series (usually sold as just TX) and GS series are the same thing and will probably be more heavily discounted. However, I did say not to buy Corsair quite so much, so...

You sir are wrong, It must be at no less efficient than 88% anywhere, and PSU are usually the least effiecient at LOW loads

Yes yes, several people have corrected me.

And yes, I know you also didn't say NOT to buy Corsair, but you DID advise to look at other brands more seriously; which is what I've been doing.

So meh to NAXN then? Gotcha.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

30$ more for the one you mentioned. Even if you include rebates. It's not Modular, though. Kind of want Modular, cause I'm sick of wires hanging all over the damn place.

So any suggestions for 750w PSU that is of good quality and won't break the bank then?

The SeaSonic X 1000W they just released is tempting, despite it's price, and the fact I don't need that much wattage; just the performance I read about it made me foam at the mouth, or the reviewer was really good at hyping things.

Else I might just head back to the Corsair

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010

20$ more, after discounts & rebates, than the Enermax one. IT wasn't on sale before though. Probably just end up doing that; I'm falling into the trope again, but heck, I just want it to be quality, work wel, ect.
