Of course if it was at is regular price $300 theres bunch of units to choose from but this will still be included with the best. The unit was push to 1710w before it shutted down with 86% efficient. so you can definitly run more than 1350w with it if you need to.

Thanks, i decided to go with the MaxRevo in the end.
Newegg here has it for $309 tongue.gif
But I got it price matched for $275 here

Resale won't be a factor for me smile.gif

Yeah I'm liking the MaxRevo...seems to have won loads of awards...

actually getting 1200w psu is good for you. since you have the motherboard for tri SLI... and a cpu that will utilize the tri SLI. So why not...its actually good.

its those people that only have SLI boards that spend 100 buxs more for a 1200w psu, that pretty useless for them unless they plan to quad SLI.

I would go for the 1200W MaxRevo if it's available. But only the 1350W is available here frown.gif

i rather have a big psu from the begining and not short out like i have. I had a 700tx for my 280gtx, then i upgraded to ultra x3 1000w (found is only 840w 12v line) ran my first gtx 580 on it, now i have sli 580 overvoltage, max overclock cpu, watercooling system. My ultra is dropping the 12v line to 11.5v and i removed it, i know i have lifetime warranty but i just don't trust ultra and all the bad thing i have been reading. Now with enermax maxrevo 1350w i have more than what i need plus is future proof with 12p connectors, i can run 3 sli when gtx580 or 2x 590. I should have bought a big psu from the beginning, if is anyone first build i recommend a big and strong psu so you won't have to upgrade overtime (and with a minimum of 3 year warranty best to go with 5 years).

Corsair AX1200 - Made by Seasonic 100% - Extremely low to NO ripple, one 12v rail with massive amperage.

In fact Guess what im running?

Corsair AX1200 - just to power my GPU's

Antec Tru Power New 650watt for my Mobo, CPU, Loop, fans, and drives. Yup the TP New was made by Seasonic fully also! So im basically running two Seasonic PSU's.

Get this!!! Seasonic PSU's and the ones they make for other companies are so darn good that....

My Antec 650watt (above) was able to run a I7-2600K @ 4.8ghz like 6 Hard Drives, 2 6970's in Crossfire, and case lights and fans and water pump etc... without flinching for ever. And guess what its still being used to power this rig im typing on.

I'm sorry but linking those will not only have worse voltage regulation than an AX1200 on its own, it will also be less efficient than the 1200 would be and you gain nothing by it except another potential point of failure.
Why did you do that? frown.gif

Also, the HCP has better ripple supression than the AX1200 in any test I've seen so that's no reason to go for the AX1200. It's a great PSU but the HCP has been tested to be better.

Edit: Actually, read Phaedrus' link on linking PSUs. The bit where I said "worse voltage regulation" doesn't explain it very well, his article is well written and would do a better job.

The AX1200 isn't made by SeaSonic. It's made by Flextronics. Only the AX650 thru AX850 are SeaSonic, in that series.
post #16 of 28
honestly, there is no reason to link those psu's as the ax1200 will provide enough power for that whole system. i have mine running my rig with the following hardware:

3 6950's fashed to 6970's in crossfire (overclocked)
980x cpu @ 4.4gigs
evga 4-way classy board
14 120mm noiseblocker fans
6 sticks of memory
2 adaptec raid cards
4 1.5tb hdd's
5 x25-m intel ssd's
1 asus usb 3.0/sata 3 card
scythe fan controller
blu ray burner
2 mc-355 water pumps

the rig pulls just under 1100 watts under 12 threads of prime 95 and furmark. only reason to have 2 psu's in that rig is so that you can tell people you have two psu's in your rig rolleyes.gif

OP, the list of psu's you have there is a fine one, although i'm partial to the ax1200, any of those in your list will get the job done for you. GL.thumb.gif

No, ALL AX are made by Seasonic except the 1200W version which is made by Flectronics.

Hey, thanks. I already got the MaxRevo ordered smile.gif
I'm a big fan of Enermax products (mainly fans and PSU) just like how most everyone here is a Corsair fan (although I'm one too but have other preferences as well)

Okay you are right. Its been a while since I read this reveiw when I purchased mine and you are right about it not being Seasonic.

Here...

From probably one of the best PSU reviewers out there.


AX 1200
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=189

and

Antec True Power New
http://www.kitguru.net/components/power-supplies/zardon/antec-truepower-new-650w-review/3/

Qoute "This is a Seasonic built product with a Nippon Chemi Con capacitor positioned behind the primary heatsink. There are clear plastic isolation panels on the outside to stop contact with the outer chassis. The unit uses DC to DC converters to deliver +3.3V and +5v from the primary 12V area. The system features full OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Current Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection), and OCP (Over Current Protection)."

And as far as efficiency, I dont care about that. I pay my power bill, I dont care about a few percent here or there. And they are not linked. I must have confused the terminology. I just have with a connector so when I turn on my 650 my AX1200 turns on at the same time. There is no special wiring done or anything. Im just using this product right here to do it:

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_186&products_id=31562&zenid=4c5c7516efda1e493d346afcb0a18b02


I monitor my power draw using my LCD on my UPS. There is 0, zilch, nada, none, none at all, difference in wattage being pulled through the UPS from the wall no matter what combination of PSU's im using. I did this in order to not abuse the piss out of my 1200 and make it last many years to come. Its not every day I feel like spending $299.00 on a PSU because i'm running @ 100% gaming. And my system in the heaviest of benching will pull 1.3KW from the wall no joke.

Wait, where did the TruePower New enter this conversation? I seem to have lost the thread.
