Power supply choices.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a power supply which is silent and can provide clean power to all my components.
With a serious overclock.

Requirements.

- silent
- modular
- efficient gold or better
- with 800 or more watts

Thanks overclockers.

Advice needed.
All suggestion appreciated.

Here's the SeaSonic X-850. It's 80+ Gold, fully modular, and quiet. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102
And here's the SeaSonic Platinum-860. 80+ Platinum, of course, fully modular, and also very quiet. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151111&Tpk=Seasoinc%20860W

Once power supplies get this wattage, you can't really find (or at least I can't) any good ones that are fanless. These are very quiet, so I hope that will suffice.
Also, I know these are Newegg links, and I'm not sure of these PSU's availabilities in your location. I'll poke around some more if you'd like. Good luck!

Thanks they seem good.

Some Newegg reviews say the gold one has a short life though and some noise.
The platinum one seems great, may go with it.
Thanks.

What do you need to power you dont say anywhere

And unless you have crazy overclock on CPU and two high end video cards you dont need 850 watts

Sorry for the late reply.

parts

mobo- rog formula VI
hdd- 3 4tb western digital black or seagate barracudas
ssd- samsung 240gb
cpu- 4770k
video cards- dual next 7970's but if there a bust ill go with dual 780's
cooling- pump, 2 480 rads possibly with push pull so about 20 fans with case fans
case lighting.
along with some extras.

Although i will probably start with only one video card 2 hdds an ssd and maybe 4-10 fans.
But will upgrade down the line so don't want to have to change the power supply.

Also i think that power supplies are more efficient when they are not maxed out. (correct me if i am mistaken).

Cpu and the GPU's will be overclocked to the limit, of my capability which is not that good.


Just heard about this new PSU which seems good. The Corsair RM850 silent psu.

Thanks.

You dont need 850 watts

If you leave everything at stock a 650 watts PSU would be enough

700-750 watts if you want headroom for overclocks

Something like a Cooler Master V700 would be a good option

V850 if you still want that much power
