Calling any Corsair RMi Series Owners! - Page 2

Thanks to both you guys for your suggestions. That's interesting about Corsair PSUs not being as good as they used to, my first PSU was the AX 750, that thing was solid as a rock, even being pushed to the limit with my previous XFire R9 290 build. Money isn't really an issue, more so availability, Australia doesn't have as great a selection as the US. Having said that, I can definitely see you point RocketAbyss about certain overpriced units. Ideally, I'd be after the best 550-650 Watt modular PSU that doesn't cost more than AUD $250.

Just so I know, can you order from PC Case Gear?

Yep, or any other Australian retailer.

From PC Case Gear, you can get any of these modular PSUs:

 

The 750W EVGA SuperNOVA B2 for $129.00.

 

The 550W Antec EDGE for $149.00. It's a fully modular SeaSonic G Series with an LED fan that can be turned on and off with a switch on the PSU.

 

The 750W XFX XTR Series for $149.00. It's a fully modular SeaSonic G Series.

 

The 650W SeaSonic G Series for $159.00.

 

The 750W EVGA SuperNOVA G2 for $159.00. It's a Super Flower Leadex - extremely high-end (pretty much the best there is. PSUs are EVGA's biggest loss leader, and we reap the benefits with the lowest prices!)

 

The 650W Antec EDGE for $169.00.

 

The 750W SeaSonic G Series for $169.00.

 

If it were my pick with a budget of up to $250, then I'd get the 750W G2 without any hesitation. Even though it has more power than you need, it's still the absolute best one. There's nothing wrong with the 750W B2 though:

Of course, the G Series (including the XFX XTR and Antec EDGE) is better than the B2, but still, you won't have to spend any more than $170 to get an awesome PSU.

Thanks TwoCables! The EVGA G2 looks really sweet, unfortunately it won't fit inside my itx case,nor will any of the units besides the Seasonic G Series. I can live with the whine in my RM 650i provided it doesn't get any worse, otherwise I'll consider the Seasonic unit.

You're welcome!

 

I admit that I forgot about the size of the G2s. The SeaSonic G Series would be a very worthwhile investment.

Luck of the draw - any unit from any OEM has a chance at developing it, though some platforms seem to be worse than others.

If it gets any worse, just RMA it. The RMi units are fantastic performers.
