Power supply recommendation

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is what I have so far:

Case - Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
RAM - G Skill Ripjaw X Series 8 GM
Motherboard - ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Socket LGA 1150 Z87
CPU - i5-4670K
Phantek PH-TC14PE_BK

Single video card, mid level usually around $200-250

I usually keep my computer for 3-5 years and upgrade video card once. Then pass the computer to my wife.

I prefer modular or semi modular. I would like to stay at $110 or under range. Also I live in the United States

Thanks for any help

I just purchased the Corsair AX860 and I love it. The full modular makes it for a very nice and clean build. But since you are only running one card I don't see you needing that much power. Go for the lower power rating versions of it. But there are other options out there as well thou.

Just my two opinions there...

You dont need more then 550 watts if you want one video card

750 watts if you want two

Seasonic G is a good series without breaking the bank

Corsair AX series is overpriced and you can find better

Well overpriced or not in about seven years using Corsair Power Supplies... I have yet to find a single problem hence the why I have not looked anywhere else.

Anyways he did say he keeps his pc for about 3 years. Would be kind of dumb to limit yourself with something that does not give you enough headroom for those 3 upcoming years. Just my opinion thou.

Seasonic G seems to be a good psu. Would you recommend the 550 or 650. Price is almost the same.

How much more for the next step up in quality? I am looking for one that will last. I know Seasonic has an awesome rep.

Thanks again

PS
I do have a Corsair in my last system that did well. But I am not loyal to any brand, I look for quality at the time of purchase. Thanks...

Cooler Master V series

Same PSU as the Corsair AX760/860 just cheaper and with far less coil whine problems

They are only 700/850/1000 watts so unless you want 2 or 3 video cards the V is far overkill

For a single card ystem i would get a HighPower Astro PT 600 watts or a Fractal Design Newton R3 600 watts

Ok it is down to the Seasonic and the HighPower Astro PT 600 watts. Both have great reviews. I am not really familiar with HighPower Astro.

If you was your system and plan on keeping it for 3-5 years which would you pick. Cost is close enough to me that it doesn't matter. Quality is my concern.

Thanks again for the help and sorry for so many questions.

HighPower is not very well known outside of Asia

In fact you might know them under their old name Sirtec

Anyway they make and sell their own units under their own name

So they are 100% in house made no rebranding like you get with say Corsair PSU´s
