which one of these 3? o_0

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok,

I know that ampers per rail matter and overall quality of the psu aswell but choosing between recommended ones is over my IQ =)

now, I have comp (dfault clock atm) :

Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ AM2
2x1GB DDR2 PC6400/800
Innovision 8800GT i-Chill 512MB GDDR3 256BIT
plus 2xhdd and dvdrw.

and I plan to get a proper psu for it to be able to SLI the vga and clock it up a bit. I've found 3 which all seem to fit the needs (more than 2 rails with 12V etc) but I really don't know, which one to prefer. I think the last one is the "weakest" but I might be wrong...

1. Zalman ZM600-HP 600W heat pipes (4x 12V 16A)
2. 700W Thermaltake W0106 (4x 12V 18A)
3. Chieftec CFT-750-14C (4x 12V 18A)

all these go around +/- 150$ or so, maybe there's something totally better in that area?


thanks!

Personally, I would go with one of these three brands, Pc Power and Cooling, Silverstone, and Corsair. They all have great reputations as stable and worthwhile power supplies. I would also consider going with a single beefy 12V rail over multiple.

Modular:

Corsair 620Watt with 3 18Amp 12V rails ($114.99 after $25 MIR, $104.99 with use of new Google Checkout account.)
http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-620w...203270718.html

Silverstone Decathlon 650Watt with 54Amp 12V rail ($154.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256021

Regular:


Corsair 650-TX with 54Amp 12V Rail ($96.99, $86.99 with new Google Checkout account.)
http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-tx-6...206178324.html

Pc Power and Cooling 610W Continuous with 49Amp 12V Rail ($119.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...band%2bcooling

Pc Power and Cooling 750W with 60Amp 12V Rail ($169.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703009

Silverstone 700Watt with 58Amp 12V rail ($144.99 after $20 MIR)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256033

Silverstone 750Watt with 60Amp 12V rail ($149.99 after $20 MIR)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256016

I know that may be a lot of options, but just narrow it down to the price you want to pay and which one you like the most as they are all QUALITY PSU's. I know this doesn't really answer your question on those three, but I have never really heard good things about any of them, and around these forums the three brands I suggested seem to be the trifecta of goodness. Hope this helps.

I'd say stray from the Zalman. If you plan to go SLI, 600W is gonna be cutting it kind of close for peak usages.

Thermaltake PSUs are really good from what I've heard, never really heard anything about Chieftec.

$150 for a 750W modular PSU (the Chieftec) seems like a good choice though.

I recommend the PC Power and Cooling Quad Silencer 750. I will be picking one up with my next video card purchase.

oh, thanks for the instant replies!


yes, I never heard much about chieftec being good either if it comes to hyping the clocks =)

ok, I'm off to more reaserches now if I can get those suggested ones somewhere in next couple of days - kind of can't wait any more situation

thanks a lot!

well, pc power&cooling looks perfect but sadly it's not quickly available for me... and yes, according to nvidia's SLIzone site, zalman has to be 750W version at least for SLI 8800 series. seems like thermaltake wins the case this time and I mean it literally, it'll go into my case =)


thanks again for your premium support and good arguments! =)
