Ideas?

As for the 1000 wattage, is because the RM1000x is much better than the 750x and 20 USD more expensive (out of 300 so...), and EVGA same thing (20 usd cheaper is their 800b model).

Some people told me that "i" is much better than "x", but I don't saw any clear explanation as for why, and the RM1000i model costs the same as a AX1200i, at that level AX1200i is better anyway no?

Other power supplies available: random generic stuff (including one that I almost bought, but didn't, and some days later saw a guy in Brazillian forums complaining that his caught fire...), CX500, and AX1500i

Also a couple stores has several RM not x/i in stock of various wattages, but they cost the same as their x/i counterparts new.

 

What are you powering though?

What is 1000b and 800b for EVGA? I can't find them on brazil EVGA site and unfortunately they don't offer you to buy from them there either :/
RMx is fine, RMi has an extra USB Corsair thingy and that's it from my POV as far as I know.

Can you import? What would be the extra cost of buying what you want abroad and importing it? Such as buy in US and have it sent to Brazil, etc. Or at least buy in another SA country that has better hardware prices and newer HW.

You could buy a PSU for $100-120 elsewhere, ship it to Brazil, pay taxes cca 20% for EU, dunno for Brazil but gives you an idea, and still pay far less than crazy $300. On the other hand I have no idea how reliable your post/sending goods is if it is safe or not, I know SA is a mess when it comes to safety of anything so you might want to prefer to pick up goods yourself at some local shop at which point we can only tell you which of the PSUs they have is the least bad biggrin.gif

What I am powering:

i5-4690K, 32gb OCed RAM, OCed R9 380X, 3 WD Black HDDs, lots of fan and other devices (I want to do some custom electronics for the computer).

In the future I plan in adding another GPU (or I will XFire the 380X if 380X get very cheap here, or I will use the 380X as host-OS GPU and buy a new high-end one for guest-OS to use with VT-d, a theoretical future Polaris/Vega Fury), SSDs, and a removeable HDD slot.

Also soundcard... if I find one.



About what is EVGA 1000b and 800b...

I can't find 1000b on EVGA site either O.o maybe I saw some old stuff on the store? (or mislabeled?)

The 800b... I couldn't find either. But I did found a 700b, that looked like the 800b box I saw in person, but newer.

http://www.evga.com/products/images/gallery/100-B1-0700-K1_MD_1.jpg

Probably old stock?

I found stores here are still selling Audigy SE for 100 USD after all... (Audigy SE is PCI only, not express, and had a crappy chip, that would only go to EAX 2, while normal Audigy could do EAX 3, and Audigy 2 could do EAX 4).

The EVGA 800B and 1000B does not exist the B line only goes up to 700 watt.

You are correct.

I thought I was going mad, and went to check in the website of the store I visited physically.

The "800" is the 850 B2, it costs 250 USD.

The "1000" is a 1000 G (not G2), and costs 300 USD.

Both feel too expensive to me, compared to their Corsair counterparts. (RM and RMx stuff).
post #6466 of 6753
You dont want a Corsair RM those are not all that great and they are way overpriced.
Why you might not want to buy a Corsair RM PSU

The RMx has nothing to do with the old RM and are much better as well as better priced.

OrSpeeder you need to figure out what you can get your hands on locally and whether or not you want to buy abroad and where. Write down a list of what is available to you, or links to onlineshops you can shop at, so someone here can check the PSUs available to you within your budget. For us in US and EU it's far easier to have most models available even though the prices can be weird at times it is not as bad as for you.
post #6468 of 6753
Alright, I will try again.

1. I can't import without getting stuff up to local prices again, unless I pay a smuggler, but smuggling a PSU is too hard.

2. List of stuff available here:

lots of suspicious 500W PSUs, one of them I saw complaints about setting itself on fire, 90 USD.

CX500, CX500M, 100 USD.

CX750, CX600M 110 USD.

RM750 used once in a testbench, 150 USD.

EVGA SuperNova 750 B2 220 USD

CS750M and CS850M 230 USD (yep, same price O.o)

EVGA NEX750G, SuperNova 850 B2 "V0", RM650 250 USD

RM750x and RM750i, 300 USD

RM850i, 330 USD

EVGA 1000G, RM1000 and AX860i, 350 USD.

RM1000x, 365 USD.

RM1000i, HX850i, 380 USD.

HX1200i, 520 USD.

AX1500i, 730 USD.

3. Budget: right now I have about 160 USD in hand. and for a PSU I am willing to save up to about 300something USD.

What I am trying to do:

Power a OCed rock solid machine 24/7 (literally... I don't like turning my PC off, I tend to leave it running tasks overnight, and then use it the entire day), I plan in the future to use at least 2 GPUs (due to virtual machines) but might end using more (for extra computation). Also I have some potential projects that might require GPU compute (kinda like bitcoin mining on GPU).

Couldn't figure how to edit my post.

Forgot to comment, that CX and AXi Corsair stuff are the easiest to find, followed by old RM models, since all stores have at least one or another model of that stuck in a shelf.

RMx, RMi and HXi are harder to find.

EVGA I only saw easily on stores B1, B2, NEXG and G1 stuff. sometimes I see the occasional P2 for AXi-level pricing.

Can't you just link a site or multiple you can buy from so we can see whats available? Who knows you might have missed something decent.
