Just about to pull the trigger on new PSU.... OCZ, corsair, or seasonic? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well after a bit of research apparently the 960t when unlocked to 5 cores can pull up to 162 watts at load... so this is something I need to consider if this is true. And I just like being a little future proof in case I decide to crossfire someday. So that's why I'm looking in the 600w range

according to Phaedrus's PSU calc, your system draws 475w. So 500w or more is good. Or a high quality 450w.

Personally, I would recommend Seasonic as they are the OEM for many better known brands out there. My second choice would be Corsair.
Also, the Corsair Professional Series PSUs are made by Seasonic and are based off of the X-Series. The only major difference between the two is that Corsair offers a 7 year warranty on those PSUs, whereas, Seasonic offers 5 years.
From what I have read, OCZ PSUs have a fairly high failure rate, but this is prior to acquiring PC Power & Cooling (a fairly reputable company). Despite OCZ's acquisition, I still remain skeptical of their PSU quality.

i concur. Even if they are rebranded, the warranty differs, where as Corsair has a pretty long warranty compared to brands.. I would choose Corsair.
