Is the HX650 V2 good enough for crossfire?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, I am new here, I just need some input biggrin.gif

7870 crossfire (1150/1200) with an oc'd ivy bridge i5 to about 4.2

Is the HX650 good enough smile.gif? I heard great things about the psu and I really hope it does it! I have not ordered it yet but I will be shortly.

I was mixed on the TX750 V1 or the HX650 V2, haha long story smile.gif

Hope for some good feedback asap biggrin.gif

It's what I use!
Granted I'm just using two 5770's in xfire, but it's definitely worth the money!
Best PSU I've personally owned. thumb.gif

While it does have (comfortably) enough power for the task, it lacks the connectivity... it's a castrated product, functionality wise it's inferior to the one it replaces and to most other upper mainstream/premium 650W units on the market... get something else.

Correct me here.We have the HX650 that is more "connected" (meaning it has 4, 6+2 cables) and the HX650V2 has only 2 6+2 cables.In this review by Paul Goodhead the cabling of the HX650 is one of the features he liked.
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2011/09/21/what-is-the-best-600w-psu/5
Our crew here on OCN takes issue with the reduced amount of 6+2 cables (only 2)on the HX650V2
Quite a difference "V2" in the name makes.
