Derp, PapaSmurf 1up'd me. A lot of OCZ's stuff is HighPower, but not that one.

I think I'll stick with the SeaSonic one I suppose then!

It's gold+ so it's very good, I don't really see much of a point in Plat or going passed 650w. As someone said I can even Dual SLI with that so I should be good for a WHILE! biggrin.gif

Thanks for your help gents

Grats, it's a decent unit.

I have a similar setup with a X560, and it works beautifully. The X650 is a great unit, and it leaves room to SLI in the future.

I stand corrected, though it would appear this sort of confusion is easy to accomplish. I believe I read a HardOCP review for this PSU prior to purchasing that stated it was Seasonic. Human memory is highly imperfect however. I do know there is a Sparkle unit that is identical (other than the paint on the outside and the fan color) can't recall the model number, but it's sometimes a bit cheaper. He's choosing between some fine units though. Can't really go wrong.

Np, everybody makes mistakes. Also I feel as it's only bronze I'm better off with a gold-plat cert. anyway. Also too much power for me. Not exactly OCing to 2400 mhz ram or quad-sli smile.gif
