Is the Seasonic X750 my best choice?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Is the Seasonic X750 the best and cheapest fully modular PSU to get?

I have TX 750 currently and I'm going to be doing a full sleeve job. So Modular would help me out a ton in this area, not to mention less cable clutter.

I also plan to CFX my 7970 in the future which, if I'm not mistaken, a solid 750w can do.

If there are alternatives, please explain why. Also, I would like alternatives to at least be a rebranded Seasonics, Also Fully Modular is a must. I'm not interested in SEMI Modular as, like I said, I will be sleeving in the next few weeks.

I think that's perfect for the setup. for a fully modular unit the x750 is priced pretty well.

750w is plenty for that setup.

as always Seasonic is one of the most trusted.

A user here has an AX750 for sale at 135 http://www.overclock.net/t/1217053/corsair-ax-750-gold-modular-psu/0_20

I believe they are the same Internals Would it be better to just buy new?

Not sure if it's the best but bang for your buck it's definitely up there. The Corsair 750 HX is a good alternative but not fully modular. The Seasonic 860 platinum is the best IMO but more $$ plus I don't think you need the extra wattage

I'm going to see if I can provide a shipping label and get the price lowered a bit. Work has UPS account and we get anywhere from 50-75% off

The Seasonic X750 is on sale for $150 free shipping, I'd say that's a hell of a deal. That thing could handle your setup no problem and like you mentioned would be great for custom sleeving. The PSU that member is selling is a great deal but for $15 more you could get the brand new X750, and it will last forever biggrin.gif

the X650 is on sale today for $99 with promo code.

One review showed CFX 7970's total system output being 640w.

Would that be usable? or should i drop $50 more bones?

You'd want 750w minimum for crossfire 7970s.

Love my X750 Gold, it's what I have powering my sig rig--it has no issue keeping a 5Ghz 2500k + overclocked 7970 happy. Sleeving it was wonderfully simple, too. smile.gif
