Cosair is not a manufacturer and is not the best at anything except maybe dissimulated marketing wink.gif

Buying Corsair PSUs in China is especially funny since every unit in their lineup(except maybe the AX1200) can be fund under a variety of other brands without the Corsair brand premium.. Corsair PSUs are made by Seasonic and CWT, and Flextronics for the AX1200... Super Flower is also an OEM just like Seasonic and CWT, the Golden Green and Golden King are the premium product lines it offers, they're sold in Europe and NA under a variety of brands(Golden Green can be found as NZXT Hale90, Kingwin Lazer Gold, Rosewill Lightning/Capstone, etc while Golden King can be found in NA under the Kingwin brand as Lazer Platinum while in Europe it's sold by Super Flower itself under it's own name).

The only units from Corsair that can compete with the Golden Green and Golden King are the AX(Seasonic X inside) and maybe the HX 750/850(CWT DSG inside) but they're usually considerably more expensive(the Corsair brand premium mentioned above).

This one? You do seem to be quite an expert i appreciate your insight into psu's in China.

700w sama

1000 was up to what i was willing to spend on a psu, if sama is really worth it? It would literally have to last 5 years and not burn out in 3 months.

450

400

It also looks quite awesome and they have it in stock so I can get my greedy hands on it fast.

That's the one smile.gif
Though you do realize yo don't need a high end 700W unit for a single VGA system?.. that PSU will run a 7970 Crossfire setup with ease wink.gif

edit:
The only way any of these units are gonna give you trouble is if you receive a defective sample, and in that case there's nothing else to do than return it.. otherwise, you shouldn't have any issues with either of them, they're made to last.

I do realise that 700w is too much for my needs. If a year from now I get an ati8xxx, then I can dedicate one more card to folding at home or something. I'm not a fan of sli/crossfire though because i've heard its a nightmare with driver issues.

I'd also hate to have a bad power supply zap my mobo and even more expensive gpu. The gpu is the holy grail it must be safe.

I see, massive headroom it is then smile.gif

Withe the level of protection the units discussed here offer.. that's a very very unlikely scenario wink.gif
