DA1200 vs W0133RU

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
What should I get the DA1200 or the W0133RU ?. Lately I have been hearing good reviews about the Silverstone DA1200 but Silverstone is a much newer company than Thermaltake. I especially am interested in stability and reliability.

What kind of system will you be running? As your current needs nowhere near that much

Aside from that fact. I did not ask how much power I need , I just need help choosing between those two power supplies.

Between these two, I would pick DA1200.

What would be the reasoning behind choosing the DA1200 over the W0133RU ?

Since they are priced the same I would probably choose the Thermaltake over the Silverstone. Here is a review on the Thermaltake: http://jonnyguru.com/modules.php?nam...=Story&reid=45. Unfortunately I haven't seen a proper review on the DA1200 but one has been done on the Seventeam model it is based on so it should give at least a general idea of how is performs. Review here: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...=Story&reid=77. Performance wise I would have to give the Thermaltake the edge.

As far as I know driverheaven reviewed the DA1200 , but that appears to be the only one. http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews.php?reviewid=549

Driverheavan reviews are fine if there is nothing else. I'd prefer an ATE over a bank of resistors and their reviews are a little sparse. I would also like some more info like ripple and testing in a hot box and more data points for voltage regulation. But comparing it to the Seventeam review things do look different. Voltage regulation seems to be much better which is a little weird because I couldn't tell much difference between the two units except for the 12V is a single rail in the Silverstone and multi in the Seventeam, that could explain the better 12V regulation since it was all over the place in the Seventeam. And those efficiency numbers seem a bit flat over the load range for the Silverstone. I can't say the review is flawed, just some things seem a little weird to me. Without ripple results and regulation under load in a hot box it's hard to judge but the Silverstone looks a little better than the Seventeam but I still think the Toughpower is a better PSU, but not by much.
