Which one of these PSUs will suit me best?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Yoyo I've done some research and have come across 3 PSUs that I want for my new system:
i5-4670K will OC to 4.8GHz
Corsair H100i
Inno3D GeForce GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 2000 Will try to OC it.
Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5 Intel Z87 Mirco ATX
Kingston HyperX Predator 8GB 2133MHz
180SSD
1TB HDD
Audigy Sound card + front Hub panel
probably 3-5 fans
Lian Li PC-V600FA Midi-Tower

Here are the 3 PSUs. Feel free to suggest alternatives to them! :-)

Seasonic 660w http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-034-SS
Seasonic X-Series 650w http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-027-SS
NZXT Hale Power 90+ 750W http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-104-NX

Which one should I get for my system? Considering I will not be going for SLI.

well, you only need a 500w psu for that system, so any decent ~500w would be good, 650 max (if you change your mind about SLI). 750 is way overkill and those two seasonics you linked have been known to have problems with coil whine. factor in their cost and I can't honestly recommend any of the ones you linked as two are badly priced and might have an annoying issuee while the other is just far out in terms of what you need. here are some options:

Seasonic S12II 520w
Antec EA 550w platinum
Seasonic G550w
XFX Core 650w

Okay will probably go for that Seasonic G 550W.

BTW I tried to look for PSUs from the Recommended List on OCN, but I knew someone would have better knowledge and comment on known issues and give better suggestions smile.gif

The only PSU in that price range that is better then the Seasonic G is the Cooler Master V550S

Its not easy to find outside of the EU but if you can find it you wont find anything better

The NZXT HALE 550 would have been an option but NZXT for some stupid reason made the 550 non modular

Scan has it 78.66£

http://www.scan.co.uk/search.aspx?q=V550S

Amazon for 78.63 and up

http://www.amazon.co.uk/COOLER-MASTER-RS550-AMAAG1-UK-SERIES-V550S/dp/B00FH8UA7S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383345041&sr=8-1&keywords=Cooler+Master+V550S

Ripple and voltage regulation

Brand OEM and 80 plus is often misunderstood and tought as what make something good

Which is nothing but wrong
