Mate, haven't we spent like half our lives together?... as in, I remember talking to you for hours on end, and you making up your mind about a billion times, only to change it immediately.... or am I mistaken?

OT, quality/performance wise they're more or less on par, the HX 650 is internally identical to the Seaosnic G 650, which is marginally inferior to the Capstone in output quality... however the HX 650 is castrated connectivity wise, the G 650, on which is based on, comes with 4x PCIe connectors (the standard for a premium 650W units), the HX 650 comes with only two of them.... so it makes a poor choice when compared with both the Capstone 650 M and the G 650 from Seasonic... it's sub par functionally wise.

Even a CX430V2 would do great.
@Roadkill95 i'd probably go with the Corsair as they are top notch. Even the builder series aren't that bad.

But you are undoubtedly the most knowledgeable person I've ever come across PSU wise, and I don't want to make a mistake like I did last time and buy a crappy PSU and have it blow up on me. I know I'm persistent, but I keep bumping my budget everyday hoping to get something a little better than what I had in mind and when I do, there is no one better to explain which is better and why except for you.

I apologize, again. I'm just trying to make the most out of my money. I have a crappy low paying college job and I can't afford to waste my money on something bad.

Nothing to apologize for, however you need to make up your mind somehow, we're talking about a (relatively) cheap consumer electronics item... not a Degas drawing. wink.gif

Again, what will you be powering with this unit and what's the most you're willing to spend on the PSU?

No I do need to apologize for being such a pesky little *****. I'm genuinely sorry.

I am willing to spend 90$ at most, and I my rig is

1045T probably 40%+ OC
Corsair H100 on it's way
2 Case fans ( 2 more 120mm ones it's way)
Gigabyte 990FXA - UD3
Sapphire 7850 2GB overvolted
1 TB seagate HDD
DVD rom/writer
3 USB devices

Drop the H100 and get a proper air cooler, and then go for a Capstone or Seasonic G series... anything at or above 400W would be plenty.
post #17 of 21
Ah, if it's not too much trouble might I ask why as it's already on order?

And OK thank you very much. I have the capstone on my Newegg auto-notify list, but I think the GSSR 550 and 450 are both in stock. Is there an advantage to getting a 550W in terms of future upgrades and what not?

Both the 450W and the 550W version will run a 7850 CFX setup flawlessly... so pick w/e you want.

As for the H100, because it offers a sad price/performance ration, because at bearable noise levels it's inferior to a nice high end air cooler, because it develops pump noise, because all CoolIT/Asetek AIOs are pathetic... so on and so forth.

Think I'll just go for the 450W then, no need to waste money. Ty as always. Swear I won't change my mind. tongue.gif

Also, that's pretty bad. The h100 was recommended to me by one guy and he pretty much made it sound like it was god tier compared to other coolers. mad.gif I was planning on buying a Noctua D14 before and now I guess I'll have to cancel my h100 order and buy that instead.

As always, when people refer to a particular product in "God tier" terms... they're most likely marketing victims, terminal fanboys... so yeah, the D14 would have been a better option, also the TC14PE from Phanteks, the Silver Arrow SB-E from Thermalright, the Genesis/Megahalems from Prolimatech and I could go on but you got the point.


And now I'm off, I need to work (sadly), we'll pick this up some other time if you need more info/input... and also, you owe the OP a coffee or a Thai massage (tongue.gif), since you hijacked his thread. wink.gif
