How good is the 1000Watt SilentStone? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Yup, the Striders aren't the best (but still good PSUs). I would pick the Corsair HX1000, Antec TPQ 1000, Zalman 1000, and the Silverstone DA1000 (in that order, Corsair first then Antec and Zalman are about equal quality wise). Those are all the same price or cheaper and are better PSUs. But as said earlier, do you really need it?

Okay well one thing I am noticing is on the 750watt there is only 1 8 pin pci-e connector and this one has two. How many of these connectors is the gtx 280 going to require? I am guessing one, but if I ever plan to SLI two of these then having two 8 pin connectors would be nice. I got this one at the store, but I can return it and maybe order one on newegg from anybrand. What are some of the good ones?

Are either of these any good? If I were to return the Silverstone and order one of these I would save 90 bucks and even with 2x GTX 280's I dont think I will go above 800watts.

Edit:

Okay this one looks really good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371009

850 watts and i would save 125 bucks. they have it at the store that i got it at which was Frys so I can just go exchange it there and save the money. The only drawback is that it's not 100% modular which was really nice, but not worth 125 bucks.. semi modular is good. is this a good choice?

^^ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006 I'd trust this over that Antec which I am sure you already bought.

The Antec 850 is a good choice. The other two you listed are both built buy Super Flower but I'm not sure how good they are.

The Antec performs just as well as the Corsair, maybe even a bit better.

Has Antec resolved the issue with the TPQ 850 and 1000 with NVIDIA video cards?

AFAIK, it wasn't just Antec with the low power issue (just the one that had the most trouble). But it was something NVIDIA was able to replicate and addressed it in a 169.44 beta on March 6. So every driver released since then has the patch and is confirmed to fix the issue. Here is a post on the eVGA forum about this: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=279164
