Recommended PSU to Run a 280x and GTX 660 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I did not say that Corsair were the only units that exceeded their ratings. And my Corsair has worked perfectly for almost 4 years now and I am sure it will continue to do so for a while yet, so I have found it anything but overrated.

The newer Corsair units are not as good as the older ones where

The RM series is just that worse then the TX series it replaces

RM series is also a giant mess at this point in time

its not true either that Corsair units are the only units that can do over what they are rated for

Corsair is overrated

The FSP is the best one of all those

alright thanks alot....

Hah.....

I just saw this here in korean market.

Silverstone strider ST60F-P

Now I am leaning more on this because:

Since I have already the 1000W Silverstone Strider, I could use the connectors of this.....

The only thing I dont like with this one is the lack of switch.

Unless there is an objection from you, I will avoid this.... any thoughts shilka?
