post #31 of 39
He was given all the info on all the options and he made his own choice based on that info

And since he already ordered why make a big deal out of it

The $40 difference for the V1000 doesn't make up for the ripple of that unit when you consider that the EVGA has a larger capacity, longer cables, better aesthetics (will match my PC very well) and a full ten year warranty which is just insane. EVGA support won out this time. The CM has half the warranty, flat cabling (*which I said I wanted in OP but I actually just worked with a CM M2 on my friend's build yesterday and I find the flat cables to be awful for wire management/aesthetics and airflow) and a looser voltage regulation than the EVGA. Not to mention CM's support doesn't stand a chance against EVGA's.

the only valid reason you have presented here is the warranty and flat cabling biggrin.gif other electrical reasons does NOT matter. both PSU's are excellent and WELL within the acceptable level of performance for ANY top of the line PSU. the minor differences in ripple is irrelevant since it's still FAR below the acceptable limit set forth by ATX standards smile.gif no components can be adversely affected in any way by either PSU since both are excellent PSUs with excellent performance.

I have many expensive/top of line components and $40 is chump change in my PC - I'd like to provide the cleanest power possible and $40 isn't going to change my mind. I also have been considering running SLI 780's - add an OC'd 4770K and all the rest of my components and you can easily push ~800+ watts which would stress a lower wattage PSU a bit. You don't want to run a PSU at 90% capacity if you can help it - heat, noise, efficiency, longevity all go out the window. Ripple kills components over time and causes instability - when you push your components right to the very edge, it really does matter.

hehe you might want to take that $40 and invest in a P3 kill-a-watt meter so you can have better understanding of just how much power you ACTUALLY use biggrin.gif with a pair of 780's and a 4770k, i'd be REALLY impressed if you can actually pull over 600w from the wall for more then 2 seconds at a time biggrin.gif i can comfortably say you will NEVER pull more then 600w under gaming loads biggrin.gif

don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong in wanting the best. however, the reasoning you are giving are the wrong one's smile.gif aesthetics like cable management is more valid of a reason then the ripple you will be facing or the wattage you will be drawing for the PSU you have selected smile.gif it's such an overkill of a PSU none of the electrical reasons matter at all whether you are talking about the V1000 or the EVGA G2 biggrin.gif

I've been involved with both units to an extent, so call it a wash. ph34r-smiley.gif

Thanks

And Phaedrus that index thread you made years ago is that dead or can it be updated?

I mentioned in the OP that my OCZ ZX 850 was already overkill, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to prove that I didn't already know myself. I simply asked that you shut up about how I spend my money.

If a moderator would kindly lock this thread so nobody has to read a useless argument, should they come here for useful information, I'd appreciate it.
