600-700W Modular

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am tired of my case being a sloppy mess of cables. Seriously this Antec Trio works fine, but I have so many freakin cables that I don't use. Cable management is tough already with my Antec Nine Hundred. I have decided to get a modular PSU around the same watts. I have been looking at a couple at the egg:

Corsair - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139002
Heard good things about Corsair's PSUs. Hopefully it is still on sale when it comes back in stock?

Silverstone - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256021

Thermaltake - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153039

I noticed the Silverstone has only one rail. I'm not exactly sure if that is better than having three. Are any of these really that much better than the other or does it just come down to price?

I found the Corsair at ZipZoomFly for $126.90 after rebates. I don't know if I really need to get anything over 700 watts. I don't want to overkill since I don't REALLY need a new PSU. I'm not planning on SLI, but I do want to be able to upgrade later. And thanks for the opinions, hopefully you don't think I'm ignoring your input I just don't want to spend a lot for something I already have.

Don't get the 650 watt from newegg, get the one from deadeye:

http://deadeyedata.com/index.php?mai...roducts_id=137

That's the one I got, and it's like $30 less then the one at newegg.

It has plenty of wires too, I have 5 SATA devices (4 drives and 1 CD ROM) and it has enough plugs for all of them.

Go for it. I got mine from ZZF as well, since it was about $20 cheaper than the Egg.

Exceptional quality, silent, and packs a mean punch. Not to mention it's modular.

Check out the JonnyGuru review on it.. You'll like it.

And for $126, you can't go wrong !

I gotta ask, the people who recommended www.deadeyedata.com... did you buy there because of a recommendation you heard from me or another JG member? I'm pleased that we could get the word out.

If you want modular, I have a Hot Deals post about a 600w Ultra PSU that's modular for... take a deep breath... 50$. The promo code is applied with the link.

Jonnyguru posted the hot deal, so I'm assuming he has quite a bit of faith in the PSU.
