Currently stuck trying to compare which would be better, as usual some products never have information listed biggrin.gif

I know SeaSonic is a good brand but comparing these two models I'm not sure if SeaSonic is the superior.. Could anyone point out why they would or would not be?

SeaSonic
Output
+3.3V@25A, +5V@25A, +12V@62A, -12V@0.5A, +5VSB@3A
Thermaltake
Output
+3.3V@24A, +5V@20A, +12V@56A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2.5A

Not sure if less AMPS is better or more, either way, figured I should ask some other users here before I buy tomorrow

Seasonic is the far better choice. There is a reason the TR2 is discontinued and that is because it is crap.

I'm trying to read up on the volts/amps, any chance you could go into detail about why more amp/less amp is better in those two?

You do realize that the Thermaltake PSU you listed is discontinued right? You couldn't buy it if you wanted to. Besides, I would have told you to get the Seasonic anyway. Their reputation is impeccable. Thermaltake on the other hand, I would never buy a PSU from. Low quality parts. I had a 500W Thermaltake PSU fail on me after about 3 years of use. Also, I believe Thermaltake's power supplies are rebrands. They are made by another company and then Thermaltake puts their name on it. Seasonic on the other hand, actually makes their power supplies along with making power supplies for other companies like Corsair.

Makes sense, yeah it's discontinued on newegg not everywhere though

Any websites you could point with maybe a breakdown or understanding of the volt/amps.. I'm trying to figure out where i want more amps or less amps as It's not something i'm fond of.

I'd be looking http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151107&Tpk=seasonic%20750&IsVirtualParent=1 unless theres something else you guys would recommend for me to take a peek at.

Honestly there is nothing difficult at all about the whole amps situation. The more the better. The more amps that you have on each rail, the more load that rail is able to handle. Simple as that. You specifically want a good amount of amps on the 12V rail as it is the rail that powers your graphics cards along with a few other things.

Thanks mate biggrin.gif i appreciate you explaining this

I have one of these now and all i have is coil whine unless its at %100 cpu load in stress test... really high amps, really annoying noise frown.gif
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153158&Tpk=sp850%20m&IsVirtualParent=1
Output
+3.3V@25A, +5V@25A, +12V@70A, -12V@0.8A

Silly question
http://support.asus.com/powersupply.aspx
Let's say that recommends me 650watts, is having more watts just going to hurt my electric bill or will there just be extra watts available ( if i decide to throw in a water pump and 4 fans on a new radiator or something)
