Corsair 520HX vs. OCZ GameXtreme 600W - Page 2

post #11 of 14
this is the same kind of scenario i was in but only with the 620w vs the OCZ 700w, ....i went to with a PC P&C Silencer 750w but that's because i wanted alot of headroom for future upgrades. What do you plan on doing for upgrades, is you stick to a single VPU you should't need more than 500w, i'd pick the Corsair, havn't heard anything negative about them,

(even though the 12v "ripple" on the OCZ seems to break the deal with alot of people i don't think it's a huge concern unless you OVER-load it)

the ripple i'm talking about is fluctuations in the voltage at high loads....it won't really affect your perforance but there's fear that it will gradually wear your components out. this was only observed at extreme loads that would only be present in load tests unless you throw 2hd2900's onto it with an overclock.

It's not that the OCZ isn't good. The Corsair is really just better. I'm sure you'd be satisfied with either PSU.


I like my Corsair though.

What is the max continuous output of each PSU? I know it says the Corsair has a total of 40a on the rails, anyone know what the OCZ has?

So many recommendations for the Corsair, but I would rather avoid Buy.com and just go pick up the OCZ at a local Microcenter for the same price. But if the Corsair is that much more stable to overall better, then the choice is obvious.

well they are both at zipzoomfly.com for $100

the only real upgrade I'm planning on soon is a dual core opteron next month

sometime next year i will get a new system (CPU, RAM, and MoBo)

I assume both could run a next gen DC or Quad core chip, as long as i dont go with 2 graphics cards?
