Confused with PSU'S, Power Recommendation - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
Yes I was checking on a modular PSU.

I was thinking about this, got good reviews and the design match because I got the Fractal Design Define XL chassi.

http://www.inet.se/produkt/6900261/fractal-design-newton-r2-800w-80-modular

I think I'm going for a 800W PSU.

Which do you recommend?

It's your money, but even a 750W is a bit on the overkill side unless you overclock the 6970s.  If you overclock them, then a 750W PSU would be just about right and an 800W or higher would probably be wasted money.

 

I am unsure of the quality of the 800W Fractal Design Newton R2 PSU.  I would need to see a professional review on it instead of customer reviews.

 

Can you afford upwards of 1.500 kr?  If so, then I can recommend a few modular PSUs that I am 100% confident recommending.

The Newton R2 are rather old units, and completely unimpressive.... I'd suggest picking up an NZXT Hale90 750W, they're well priced (for Sweden) and they're excellent performers.

There you go smile.gif

Yeah that's okey, as long as I know it's good smile.gif

You are certainly right about 800W being overkill, I read somewhere on the forum that the PSU works best at 75%.
I'm just worried that I'll get the same problem I have now in the future if I go with a 750W PSU.

The only thing that could convince me is to try it, get the feel of it.
And that is hard to do without buying it frown.gif

EDIT: Recommend away! smile.gifsmile.gif

Thanks for the idea, but they are not currently in stock in any store in Sweden :/

I'd need the confirmation from someone else who is more familiar with professional PSU reviews, but this review seems like it's lacking important information that would identify whether or not this is a good PSU.  Compare the review to any PSU review on JonnyGuru's website.

 

Regarding the 75% load thing:

 

On PSU Efficiency

 

PSU "50% Load" Myth

 

Here are all of the PSUs I would recommend from both sites, including non-modular PSUs:

 

From Inet.se:

 

  • 750W XFX Pro "Core Edition" for 864 kr (non-modular)
  • Corsair TX750 V2 for 950 kr (non-modular)
  • Corsair TX750M for 1.072 kr (partially modular)
  • 750W Antec High Current Gamer for 1.029 kr (non-modular, silly model name, but good unit)
  • 750W Antec TruePower New for 1.079 kr (partially modular)
  • 750W FSP Aurum Gold for 1.182 kr (modular)
  • 750W NZXT HALE82 for 1.190 kr (modular)
  • 750W NZXT HALE90 for 1.339 kr (modular, superior PSU to the HALE82) - I know it's not in stock right now, but it may be worth waiting for.
  • 750W Silverstone Strider Gold for 1.426 kr (fully modular)
  • Corsair AX750 for 1.507 kr (fully modular)

 

 

From Komplett.se:

 

 

I'll stop myself right here because Komplett's selection seems to be more limited than Inet.se.

 

 

So anyway, pick any of these and run with it.  ;)
