because there is a big difference in believing in marketing fluff and actually researching the performance of each PSU platform. not all units are rejected by it's performance. some are rejected based on the pricing point of that level of performance. it's like paying $20,000 more for a near identical car just because it's wearing a lexsus badge instead of a toyota badge. there are PSU's out there that are based on IDENTICAL platforms but priced drastically different. sometimes you are getting a ferrari for the price of a honda... that's why some PSU's are highly recommended and some you should stay away from.

Do not get more than a 500 watt psu for that rig, 600 watt if you may want to sli in the future.

Those psus are a waste of money

These are based on the FSP Aurum group regulated units and are pretty mediocre dont touch these they are not only mediocre but overpriced
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G retails for $139.99 in the US, while in the EU its price is 93.90€. Both prices don't include VAT.



Delivered full power at 45°C
Efficient
Good ripple suppression at +12V, 5V and 5VSB
Great amount of cables/connectors
Only uses Japanese caps
Excellent voltage regulation at 5V
5-year warranty (EVGA informed us that they offer a free upgrade to a 10 Year warranty on this model, after it is registered on their website)



Price
Loose voltage regulation on all rails except for the 5V rail
Crossload test results
3.3V rail failed on the second Advanced Transient Response test
Noisy fan (at high speed)

8.1 Although the middle capacity NEX750G promises a lot and belongs to the high-end SuperNOVA series, the platform it is based on doesn't provide enough room for modifications that would allow it to meet the competition eye to eye. So, although it uses nothing but Japanese caps that manage to provide very good ripple suppression on all rails, voltage regulation is far from perfect, especially if the unit's disappointing performance on crossload tests is taken into account. We completely understand that EVGA wants to keep the cost as low as possible in order to provide this unit at a fair price, but its $140 price-tag is still too high for what this PSU has to offer. Strangely enough, its EU price-tag looks good in comparison to the competition, but hardware is much more affordable in the US, and the competition in America is tough; others may not provide eight PCIe connectors, but they do offer better performance and higher efficiency.

To wind up, the NEX750G comes with some really nice features including a ton of connectors, a unique design, the exclusive use of Japanese caps, and the five-year warranty, but its performance is limited by the platform it utilizes (the same applies to the FSP Aurum PSUs), and its high price doesn't help at all in achieving a high price/performance ratio. I think that a price close to $100 would significantly boost this unit's competitiveness by definitively helping it survive in a tough category where the competition offers products based on more sophisticated platforms that, inevitably, perform better.

The NEX750B is a FSP Raider cheap borderline crap like the Corsair CX

Craven1, what PSU's did you refer to as a waste of money?

500w PSU is NOT going to power this system. I would be nuts to buy one for this rig if it does gaming/folding and it's ALWAYS on 24/7 doing something, never idling almost. If this computer was only turned on 1-3 hours a day sure.... 600w fine, but I'd much rather have the extra 200-300w and be using 50%-70% of the PSU's rated capacity under full load.

Using the PSU calculator program stickied in this forum, even that recommended a 550w. 6HDD, 4 of them are 15000rpm SCSI drives, 7 fans, 5 of those are high performance fans.

Anybody approve of either of these two Corsair PSU's? As far as I know, both are OEM Seasonic. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-oem-manufacturer,2913.html

Corsair AX760 $149!!! http://ncix.com/products/?sku=77639&vpn=CP-9020045-NA&manufacture=Corsair
Corsair AX860 $174 http://ncix.com/products/?sku=77641&vpn=CP-9020044-NA&manufacture=Corsair
other one I am considering
Seasonic X-750 $159 http://ncix.com/products/?sku=80026&vpn=X-750KM3&manufacture=Seasonic%20Electronics

I don't want a Corsair AXi power supply, as far as I know, the OEM of those isn't great. I've also been reading around that Seasonic Platinum and Corsair AX power supplies have been experiencing humming noises. Should I be worried about that or have they fixed it. Been thinking it may even be the reason for the sale.

If you want to recommend some better 750W+ PSU''s, please select from NCIX.com. Any Platinum performers that are rated Gold would be considered.

Alright to clear some of that up

OEM for the AX series both the old and new is Seasonic

AX650/750/850 is Seasonic KM2
AX760/AX860 is Seasonic KM3

The AX1200/AX760i/AX860i/AX1200i is made by the OEM Flextronics and there is nothing wrong with Flextronics units

I say again Corsair units are overpriced you would be better of getting something else

Not becuse of bad quality but overprice

Now main problem with the Seasonic KM3 and the KM2 to to a lesser degree is coil whine

Not that big a problem with coil whine on the AX760i/AX860i but the Corsair Link control software on those are broken and useless so you pay money for something half broken

At the end of the day i would saty clear of Corsair for the reasons above not becasue of bad quality

If you want a Seasonic KM3 the Cooler Master V700 is the cheapest KM3 there is and i think Cooler Master may have fixed the coil whine problem on those

Or you could get a Rosewill Capstone if you dont mind semi modular

There still some other options as well like the NZXT HALE 90 V1 and V2 or the Fractal Design Newton R3 or the Be Quiet Dark Power Pro P10 just to name a few

So I guess this is the list I will choose from. Which would you guys get if price was not an object, but would be considered. I kinda lean towards the Corsair or Seasonic units because of the 7 year warranty, unless that coil whine is a problem (defect that could lead to issues down the road?). I got loud fans in my system that will probably mask it.


I would like the best possible power supply for the best price with the best warranty. I've only used corsair's tech support with ram and they have been great from my experience. Any issues with any of the other companies tech support?

I just had a chat with Phaedrus the former PSU editor here on OCN and he told be some stories about Corsair that made me dislike them even more

So i say forget the Corsair units they are overpriced and knowing what i know now i would never buy anything from them again

I say pick the V or the HALE 90 V2
