Deciding on a PSU: Silverstone OP650 vs Corsair 620HX

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Which one is better? I heard some good things about Silverstone's single 12v rail @ 54, but I've heard some good things also about the Corsair 620HX overall. Which one is going to be better for overclocking?

Either way you'll be fine.

They're both great PSUs and will serve you well.

I'd definately go for the silverstone, cuz it's on a single rail. And that is worth more then being modular IMO.

The Corsair is effectively a single rail PSU also (see reviews at jonnyguru.com). It's only at the very end that the rails are split, likly for marketing reasons.

Good choice.

PS: there als is a Silverstone DA650 out now... identical to the OP650, but modular.

Personally, I'd save the $30 and get the OP. Having it modular isn't THAT big of a benefit. Even if you're going to do cable management, it's pretty easy to tuck away the cables you don't use.

Good choice, Corsair's PSU's are late to the party but trump many of the long standing vendors. They're commissioned by Corsair to Seasonic and built with top shelf components. As for the rails, I believe they employ some sort of dynamic sharing where power from one can be diverted to another if not in use.

You mean Seasonic to Corsair? I don't know seems more likely Seasonic would develop for Corsair.. Either way good overall PSU. Silverstone is just more me.. I love 'em.
