I need a strong power supply for a powerful build (and suggestions) - Page 3

post #21 of 29
I would not get pci-e SSDs. They are a massive pain when they don't work and they aren't all that reliable. Your best bet would be to get a couple of normal SSDs and put them in RAID 0, and use some hard drives for backups.

Well it is the Ivy Bridge-E 4960X Processor and I will most likely be overclocking it, and I am canceling The RAID Card and the PCI-e SSD since I think that they are a complete waste of money. I will also have 3 290X cards in Crossfire running 3 Dell UltraSharp Displays and games maxed out. I will have a Corsair Neutron 64GB SSD solely for the OS, 2 Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD's @ RAID 1 solely for installing programs and games on, and 2 WD Black 2TB @ RAID 1 solely for saving my documents and many projects for college and videos on different topics to study to get my degree. I will also have the Corsair Obsidian Series 900D - Extreme Watercooled Edition Case from http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=38852 and I will add another Alphacool NexXxoS 360mm rad, and another NexXxoS 120mm rad. I will also be replacing all existing fans and installing fans on new rads with 12 Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition Fans(http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=34308), and will be using a G-VANS Legion 4-Channel Fan Controller(http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=37182). I will also have a Blu-Ray Drive and I want to run my Corsair Vengeance Pro Memory at the O.C. speed of 2133MHz. So that leaves only one thing: The PSU.

I hope this extra information helps you help me decide on a power supply, or else, I'll probably get the Enermax Platimax 1350W 80Plus Plat. PSU.

The Platimax is not worth the money they want for it

EVGA SuperNova G2 1300 watts is better

80 plus has nothing to do with quality

Its marketing hype for the most part

I can name more then one gold rated PSU thats crap

So I should go with the EVGA SuperNova G2 1300W?

Its not overpriced as the Platimax

Also think its better

Only thing the Platimax has G2 does not is a platinum bage

What makes a PSU good is not 80 plus but voltage regulation and ripple

Can compare them if you want to know why you should buy one vs the other

Okay. How does the LEPA G Series 1600W compare to the SuperNova G2?
post #27 of 29
both are excellent units.

however for YOUR needs you DON'T need 1600w. the EVGA 1300W can even power 4 GPU's (which you aren't doing) so going with a 1600w unit is just because you like a bigger number on a sticker or you saw it in a youtube video somewhere....

it seems like you have a habit of making people repeating their recommendations over and over again.... almost bordering on trolling.... people who recommend these are based on YOUR unique build / situation while keeping in mind of future proofing your build to the best of their knowledge of future needs/products that are coming onto the market. it's not just some random recommendation. alot of thoughts go into a recommendation including on what is currently on sale for a unit of that quality. if you insist on spending more $ for the same quality unit, that's your business... but people have made their recommendation based on what information you have provided regarding your system. that recommendation is not going to change no matter how many units you throw into this thread because that recommendation is the best unit they know given the information you have provided...

This

1300 is all you need you dont need 1600 nor should you get 1600

Unless you really like to waste money for no reason

OKAY!!!

No need for a freaking life lesson. I'll just get the 1300W like you said because you're a freaking guru at teaching people life leasons and giving out recomedations. All I asked for was a comparison of the two power supplies. Gee whiz.
