hey Tator, pls help me...

based from Quick'n'Dirty PSU calc, I only need around 400 W PSU for my need, I have found a good PSU around that range, Seasonic S12 II 430 ($64)

But I'm thinking for my future upgrade, I want to look for PSU around 500W (not too overkill like my current PSU right?). I've had 6950 before and I downgrade to 5850 Because the price is great and 6950 is a bit overkill for me at that time, maybe for the next AMD or Nvidia series I will upgrade it again and I will upgrade to sandy bridge or bulldozer after compare performance of each other

what do you think???

This is the PSU that I will choose for around 500W, hope you can help to choose the best suited for my need
Seasonic S12 II 520 $78
Super Flower 550W - SF-550P14XE GOLDEN GREEN (80+Gold) $98
Super Flower 550W - SF-550P14PE GOLDEN KING (80+Platinum) $127, it's promo price, real price is $150, I think it's nice price. all the stuff I listed have 5 year warranty

thank you for your attention, any advice appreciated

Super Flower Golden King if you can float the cash for that guy. 80+ Platinum, and damn near perfect performance.
1% Vreg on all rails, as well as having lower than 10mv of ripple on the minor rails and only 20mv of ripple on the 12v rail.

The Golden Green is almost as good. Vreg isn't as tight (Though not bad) and it's efficiency is about 2% lower.

The Seasonic S12II Bronze 520w is a good unit, but the other two are leagues ahead.

SEriously, if you can, all guns on that Golden King 550w; it can even "overclock" to a 650w unit and retail 80+ Gold levels of efficiency (as that is guaranteed.)

wow, thanks for your advice...
I just want to make my rig consumption more efficient, and it is between 20-80 % load right?? golden king in jonnyguru review can keep efficiency 85% in low load test (below 20% and I think my rig consume around 100 W or less in idle that make PSU around 400 and 500 will be more efficient)

after read "Quick'n'Dirty PSU calc" and "50% Load Myth", I don't need more than 550W because I will stick to single card only and the next gen hardware will be more power efficient

Oh, 1 more question, after I'm searching in the net, I have found someone say that s12 ii 520w is better efficiency at low load than s12 ii 430w, is that true?

Both are of the same design, but at 100w load; the 430w will be more efficient due to it's lower capacity (thus efficiency is tuned for a lower load than the 520w)

As for the GPU Requirements; the Golden King 550w could run 2 HD6950's off of it, and as for it's efficiency, at 10% load it'll still be more efficient than the other units.

The Antec High Current Gamer is part of it but the Neo Eco isn't?

They're basically the same thing.....

*High End qualifies as: Core i7 920 @ 4.4Ghz, GTX 580 with high air overclocks, 2 HDD, 1 SSD, 1 ODD, 5 x 120mm fans.
according to what details u gave i think a 900w psu is more then enough for ur needs check this out fill up ur requirements and add 30% to it for a 900w i would suggest u a
1)Corsair TX950
2)Antec High Current Gamer 900w
Quote:
Simple systems like an Athlon II x4 & HD5770 would run on a solid 400-450w PSU
and as far as u say a 450w to 500w i personal recommend
1)Corsair CX500 V2
2)Antec Earthwatts 500D
hope it helps

Yep, another Golden King unit from Kingwin. Ok Wolf did a review at JG about the Super Flower branded version of this guy.

Not quiet as good as it's big brother. More so due to the heat not being fulled away (since it's fanless.)

Personally, it seems a bit redundant considering the fan in the 550w LZP never kicks on. Ever.
