PSU market is overblown with Corsair/Seasonic

post #1 of 247
Thread Starter 
After having been on OCN for a little over a year and having read tough more help me find a PSU threads then i can count i have been thinking about this for a while now
Now this is my own personal opinion its not 100% facts as with any human being i can make mistakes so if a make one be polite and point it out in a civil way
Now back on track after having read so many threads with people asking for help about finding a PSU i have noticed that Corsair/Seasonic pops up in almost everyone of them and often the it will say get Corsair/Seasonic those are good and i am getting a bit tired of them
Now before you start thinking oh no here is one that hate Corsair/Seasonic i am not i have a Corsair AX1200 myself and its a good PSU.
The problem is with everyone and their mom and her dog says get Corsair/Seasonic the PSU market is getting overblown with those brands yes they are good brands but there are other brands out there.
What i want to talk about is Super Flower/Kingwin/NZXT/ why those brands you say?
Well its seems to me that these brands gets overlooked quite a lot compared to Corsair/Seasonic
Why do they get overlooked i have no idea after reading some reviews and doing some research some of these PSU´s are actually a little better then some of the Corsair/Seasonic units
Even Corsair and Seasonic have some bad PSU´s among then the old CX series is not very good and they had some problems with the AX series.
I cant talk about Seasonic as it is a brand we really dont have here in Denmark and i have never worked with them but Corsair i have
So the whole idea behind this thread is to give info all you out here on OCN that there are other brands that are good then just Corsair/Seasonic if everyone keeps saying Corsair/Seasonic those 2 companys will be the only companys left and there will be no competition left and the market will die
Now you dont have to agree on this but keep it civil if you dont

I have an OCZ 600W PSU in my rig. Bought it from a friend, which used it for about two years. So now it's somewhere about 2,5 years old and still going strong! thumb.gif

On the contrary I've seen more PSU's recommended that i'd never thought to try before (i.e. when I had a Rocketfish 900w) - yes Corsair / Seasonic / Silverstone / Antec PSU's get recommended a lot, but that is because they have a large body of quality work behind them. The biggest thing that I appreciate on here is that people are conscious of how much power a computer ACTUALLY takes, I've seen lots of forums recommending a 900W PSU for a i3 + 6850.

The reason some of those other brands aren't talked about much is, while they may have 1 or 2 good PSU's, their overall line up is either mediocre or absolute garbage, and I'd rather keep recommending a brand with good quality across the board than a PSU brand with a single specific good PSU. Of course that isn't to say I wouldn't recommend that specific PSU, but I will also state that the body of their work overall isn't great so simply buy that one thumb.gif

valid point.

imo, seasonic deserves the credit they get because they make fantastic psus and a lot of other companies oem their designs, like the corsair ax series. corsair uses other oems for their other lines, but the reason why they're so heavily referred, is because of their outstanding customer service and warranty. something breaks or isn't functioning properly? rma is seamless with corsair. can other companies provide that piece of mind? idk.

but it does suck how people wont give other brands consideration. do i wish there was more balance and competition in the psu hardware side? yes. but corsair started from nowhere too. they get their recognition by producing quality components and offering great customer service to back it up. if others want to compete, they need to offer more for less than what brands like corsair and seasonic has which is pretty difficult.

not everyone are followers if thats what your assuming lol jk. you'll always have others who want to be different and i was like that too. but i submitted to corsair, so i guess that makes me a sheep... baaah! tongue.gif

I'm a bit confused, you have a Corsair 1200 PSU and you are getting tired of people pushing Corsair/Seasonic PSU's?

I use a variety of PSU's in my machines, Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, Enermax, Corsair, Thermaltake, and even some "no name budget" units that I honestly can't remember any more. The reason why I usualy recommend Seasonic, PCP&C, and Enermax is because they are quality built units that often last me 7+ years. With me, they have a track history of being good units.

I'm sure some of the others you listed above might be just as good, but since I most often make recommendations to others based on what I've personally tried, since it is my name being used in the recommendation, not some 3rd party site, those are the supplies that I will go with.

Please don't take what I'm about to say the wrong way, but have you tried Kingwin, Super Flower, or NZXT power supplies yourself? Is your Corsair 1200 giving you issues? Are you in the market for another PSU because you are making another build? I'm just a bit confused by the post.

Actually the Corsair AX1200 the AX760I the AX860I and the AX1200I is NOT made by Seasonic they are made by a company called flextronics

I have tried the NZXT HALE 90 series a couple of times before and on a few points its better then the Corsair HX/AX series
And sory for the confusing no this thread is to inform people that there are PSU´s out there just as good or even a little better then the Corsair/Seasonic units if everyone will always say Corsair/Seasonic then smaller brand with good PSU´s could die out and that would be sad
