For PSU I try to focus on things created by Seasonic or Superflower. Most other brands dont make their own PSU and buy from other manufacturers. If you are considering a new PSU would recommend checking origin manufacturer before purchase. Good PSU for fairly cheap is Rosewill Capstone (superflower origin) that is gold rated and tested to be very good performance across the board.

Get a SF Leadex based PSU or Corsair RMx. Personally I think Seasonics are a hype and more suited for servers than quiet home computing, whine and loud fans, no thanks, haven't seen them compete with the offers of the first two in two years, good PSUs yes but not on par with the best for home use and IMHO are dated a LOT.

Does EVGA still offer 10 year warranties on PSU? I haven't bought one in years. I got a good deal on 2 bronze 650watt seasonic PSU and they have been silent and working well for over 5 years in now 4 different rigs. Never had any fan issues.

Superflower seems to be the better quality in my opinion after researching multiple PSU reviews and the components within. I have not had experience with many really but reviews point to Superflower. Seasonic does have some poor performers so you do have to be careful but they are good warranty and quality products as far as I have seen.

I havent been looking in years but about 3 years ago I spoke with some PSU Guru guy here on OCN and he strongly suggested the Rosewill capstone. The reviews put it near platinum with outstanding voltage regulation and if you catch it on sale on Newegg you really can't beat the price especially for the quality. As of about 3 years ago it was the best bang for buck. I am sure there are newer ones that have taken its place. If I have an itching I may upgrade soon to increase to a better rated PSU on my main rig and give my old rig a boost so if anyone knows of the best bang for buck PSU nowadays let me know smile.gif

The new rmi/rmx from corsair is amazing. Seasonic,evga,superflower are some of the ones id stick with. Even the new corsairs are 10 years although after capacitor aging depending on load i wouldnt keep em more then 5 they start becoming inefficient after a while

Corsair RMx/i, EVGA/SF Leadex G2/P2/T2/GL/GX, EVGA/Seasonic some but I think Seasonic days are over for now until they come up with a decent performing quiet unit that doesn't cost you a kidney.

I think Rosewill is dead too now, it used sell older SF PSUs the green or something I think. Dunno if their current line up has something comparable to the first two options.
The reason there are many mediocre PSUs that are even more expensive than the best PSUs is that people will buy anything you sell them, they can't make heads or tails from PSUs especially from their marketing information, gotta read very specific reviews with technical info to see the differences.
post #20678 of 22525
I will probably buy a RM750 (not RMx/i) for half of the store price from a PSU testing guy.

If that deal doesn't close, then I will have to save lots of money to buy a RMx.

The only EVGA stuff on my country are Bronze :/ or that weird G models that don't support Haswell.

Other brands I didn't see a single one, it is Corsair, EVGA or generic stuff, and even Corsair it is hard (most stores I visited only had CX500, and AX1200i and AX1500i O.o

a few online stores have RM750 for sale)
post #20679 of 22525
Weird G models? Get a G2 they do support everything.
RM is the older not so good series, it has it's issues but if you don't expect miracles it should work.
The RMx/i is really good though along with the EVGA G2... = SF Leadex Gold... the GL/GX are newer EVGA probably not sold yet just a variation.

There are other brands that may have decent PSUs but one has to see what is available at your location and choose from that.
Those RM750s are gonna be older, I don't think they sell them anymore, it must be old stock on discount to get rid of it.
post #20680 of 22525
The G2 is not available. Only some old Gs.

As for RM stock, seemly stores have a incredible stock of these, so instead of discounting they are selling at their original price, and not buying new PSUs at all. a new RM750 costs 291 USD. The guy that offered to sell me his tested RM750 wants 145 USD.

EVGA 850B costs about 270 USD (it is what I saw in stock today).

There is some "Sentey" stuff for sale, one store I visited physically, a salesman tried to push it on me, saying it is famous... Ever heard of it?
