post #21 of 90
how about the be quiet dark power pro 10 850/1000w gold units?
post #22 of 90
I would say the Evga supernova 1000 P2 is just the best and the A1200i is worse (will say below why). Ripple suppression the superflowers are just the best.

Just to cover quicky up why the AX1200i is garbage; I've had the ax860i version and the fan control is just crap - when you have high idle power consumption and you have the fan facing down the fan ramps to its max speed for 1-2seconds and turns off repeating this 10 times within a minute. When gaming it was worse, probs more than 20 times. They need some airflow to have the semi passive mode working properly. You can fix it with Clink but you can only set the fan to a fixed speed even at its lowest speed the fan is still audible thanks to its ****ty sleeve bearing. It's not even a semi passive psu anymore. Seasonic & the superflower series don't have this issue at all, the fan kicks in slowly like it should.

They probably designed this in 10 minutes time and not even a single reviewer could pick this up. They should stop with their nonstop worst case scenario tests and test them in a real world situation like in a case. I'm not sure if it's only on the EU lines but with their ax860i's/ax860 the psu just whines when the system is powered off because of the 5V rail things whatever it's still not fixed I think or atleast I didn't hear any fixes. You could fix it by enabling ERP in the bios but that way the boot process is weird; the system boots up shuts off like there was a power cut before and then starts to boot normally.

Here are some noise results from TPU with as test method using psu in the box with an ambient in the box probs 36-45°

1. Be Quiet


2. Corsair AX860 uses the same fan as the Seasonic platinum 1000 (http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Corsair/AX860/images/in_fan.jpg & http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviewimages/seasonic-platinum-1000w-psu/seasonic-platinum-1000w-psu_fan.jpg)


3. The EVGA 1000 P2 uses same fan as other 1000 superflower models


4. Cooler master V1000 (uses Protechnik fan & Seasonic is OEM)



Couldn't find any Seasonic unit with a san ace fan (the V1000 uses protechnik orsomething instead of OEM) with this testing method so I used the AX860 not perfectly accurate but ok.. The Evga just remains the quietest of all at 800W it sits below 35dBa while others were sitting at 50dBa. Im not expecting the ax1200i to be any better.

Thanks for the read shilka, just what I was after.

I recently picked up a 290x to crossfire with my 290 and it was all good and well until I started getting display driver crashes and reboots. I crossed off every other problem on the list by reinstalling windows/drivers and trying the cards one at a time and ended up with my Corsair TX750 V2 just not supplying enough power especially when I bumped up the clocks on the 290.

Anyway I'm going to pick up a 1000w for a little bit of future proofing and was wondering whether the P2 is worth $65 dollars over the Cooler Master V1000? Or which will give me the best value overall?

My options are:

P2 - $309
G2 - $259
CM V1000 - $245

Cheers.

Still need to rework the 1000 watts thread
http://www.overclock.net/t/1438987/best-fully-modular-1000-watts-psu

Moved it here since its more relevant...

I'm not really sure I'd spend the extra 20 quid on the platinum certification. The G2 just seems like too good of a deal.

Prices are 130GBP for G2-1000, 151GBP for G2-1300, and 154 for P2-1000.

I guess there's the CapXons on the modular pcb... that makes matters a bit harder...

And you get a hybrid fan mode on the P2 but really the CapXon´s are on the modular board so they see almost no load at all.

Since you are from the UK check overclockers they have the Super Flower Leadex which might be priced cheaper

It's 150GBP there, they don't usually have the cheapest prices. Also, the services are notoriously bad at times so I'd rather avoid.

Also, it would mean dropping that 10 year warranty.

My brother currently is using a GS600 which also has a semi-passive fan. I held a 2500rpm 120mm fan to it after it had been on for an hour, and the air that came out was hot... I must say, I'm not a fan of that... (oh what a pun there was hidden in there)
