Seasonic X850 Gold Vs. XFX 1000W LTD Black Edition Platinum - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Value wise, the X/AX 850 are nothing to write home about... if you're stuck on those three and you won't consider anything else, go with the Black Edition 1000 even though you don't need it, it's a much better unit and offers far superior value.. as far as the fan goes, the Protechnic used by XFX for this unit uses a superior bearing to the San Ace used by Seasonic.

Unoriginal sin highlighted something I said before, the Fluid Dynamic Bearing on the XFX fan is meant to last. Edit* I knew it was a good fan given the Fluid dynamic Bearing but I did not look up the SanAce. Besides the fan on that 1000W unit will barely need to run given its efficiency and the Low load you will likely put on it.

Notice my sig rig, I have done a TON of research on PSUs and I ended up with an XFX.

You will be happy with the 1000W platinum, even though it will exceed your needs.
Value wise, the XFX is the winner.

Thread Starter 
it was at NCIX Canada. But the price is back up $229.99 after 20 MIR =/. In the end i just picked up the Corsair AX850 instead for $161.20 because i didnt want to deal with the MIR and didnt like the cables for the XFX Psu

Doh! As I missed the X750 deal (when really I need 850) then the XFX sounded like a good deal, but now all PSU's have seemingly shot up in price. Awful luck on my part. As I was going to replace the GF's 1000w Enermax Galaxy (original) that has decided not to turn on (or turn on 4 minutes after button pushing) with my HX850 (Her machine only needs ~380 but normally it's trickle down tech and the next GPU she will get will bump it up to 650~).

Oh well >_>

That'd be a dream, and it's incredibly tempting but I honestly didn't want to spend oodles of cash on this PSU swap, she's pitching in $50-60 as that's what it would be for a 550-600w, but I figured might be a good opportunity for me to upgrade (and her get something better too). Really didn't want to spend more than $100 out of my pocket, but considering mine is a workstation that is on ~5-10 hours a day it might be worth it from power savings alone over the HX850 >_>
