Corsair vs Antec vs Cooler master - Page 5

post #41 of 45
Yes it does. Capacitors age when used constantly or run hot, and they age when left unused for too long. A capacitor lasts longest when it gets periodic, minor usage; in use maybe one hundred to two hundred days out of the year is best. And efficiency, performance, and noise expectations do change.

That's not a theme

That's plain fanboyism/stupidity

What the? I am not a corsair fanboy, at all. And most corsair components are great quality.

for your machine the Antec 1200W Quattro would be a waste, I have lost faith in Cooler Master PSU's (although the Real Power Pro Line was supposed to be ok), so that leaves the Corsair HX1050, but im curious as to the price you got it at. Also, it may say 80+ Silver, but in actual testing Its more like an 80+ Gold. I looked to Corsair for this and they confirmed it, but they said they labelled it as 80+ Silver because they could not guarantee that every unit would meet 80+ Gold certification. I think there is an 80+ Gold version available on the Corsair website though. but the Seasonic X Power 1050W is probably what I would have gone for. heck you probably dont even need a kilowatt, you could get away with a much lower wattage unit.
