OCZ SILENCER MK III 600W VS Corsair CX750W - with following build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Mobo: Possibly Gigabyte z87X-UD3H
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K
GPU: EVGA GTX 770 w/ACX
RAM: Kingston Hyperx 16GB KHX16C10B1BK2/16X
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB


Corsair power supply
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Series-Modular-CX750M-750W/dp/B00ALK1TPE/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1378749836&sr=1-1&keywords=CP-9020061-EU

OCZ power supply
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silencer-Series-Power-Supply-Ppcmk3S600-Eu/dp/B0068ESERI


PRICE for them locally:
Corsair one costs $107
OCZ one costs $114


I ask this question because i plan to overclock CPU and GPU, and i am unsure if 600W will be enough. And since the Corsair PSU is cheaper than the OCZ one, why not get it if...it´s equally good or better?

You dont need more then 500 watts for a system like that so a good 550 watts is more then enough

And no the Corsair CX 500 is not good

its overkill and the Silencer MK III is a PC Power and Cooling branded PSU

Dont know why its listed as a OCZ other then OCZ owns Power and Cooling

But its not made by OCZ or Power and Cooling if you did not know

The 600 watts version is in fact a Seasonic S12II

its not made by OCZ nor does OCZ make any of the units they sell

The XFX Core Edition is the cheapest Seasonic S12II version i know of

Where are you from?
