Best power supply that is also easy to sleeve?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Now I know this questions has been asked a lot but I can't seem to find a great answer.

I've done some research and it seems to me that two of the easiest power supplies to sleeve are the Corsair RM and AXI

This is because they are both almost one to one except for the 13 pin which is a double cable. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

The problem is the RM has gotten a lot of negative reviews and the AXI is almost double the price of an RM PSU.

Are there any power supplies that are as easy as the RM/AXI (one to one or as close as possible) while being really good power supplies?

If the answer is no then which one should I get? The RM or pay the extra $80 for an AXI?

Thanks

First off, since I assume you already have a PSU in operation, if sleeving is going to determine which one you should buy next, should it be about how easy it is to sleeve, or should it be about finding a PSU with interchangeable cable sets?

 

For example, Seasonic KM3 PSUs have a very good repuation and share the same cable sets over a wide range and even though the 24 pin cable has 4 double wires and you have to be careful sleeving the PCI-E cables, once you have a set made up it will be interchangeable for as long as you keep buying KM3 units. KM3 PSUs are also rebadged and sold more cheaply, for example as XFX Black Edition PSUs - of course there will be divergences, such as the Coolermaster V850, also a KM3, which has different Sata/Molex cables, but keeping to a particular range means you can swap PSUs without worrying about style of cable set.

 

One invaluable link for hunting out who sells whose PSUs is the RealHardTechX PSU Review Database.
