Best 750W on the market?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Getting ready to build my new computer and currently am looking at the Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W PSU. Just curious if anyone has any suggestions on an alternative PSU? Aiming for around 750W or so.

for the system in your sig, 750W is overoverkill. a TX650 should do fine. but unless you want to upgrade to tri-sli or something 750w is not required.

Well, if you do want to go with 750 watts, and you're looking for an alternative to the Corsair, the PC Power + Cooling 750w Quad Silencer is a good choice. It's won a bunch of awards and stuff. And it's got a thick, heavy power cord that instills confidence.

+1 on the PC Power + Cooling 750w Quad Silencer.
It will work good for you also because tou have SLI going on. Has multiple connectors.
I love mine and have never had any problems with it.
Good luck with your choice.

i asked myself the same question and got the thermaltake 750w modular psu. I wanted modular to keep my case clean, and this psu is just as good as the others, and better than most. I put it up there with the pc power + cooling but with modular cables

Noob question incoming..

What exactly is "modular"? I tried googling it, but it was just a lot of products that came up, and not a clear definition.

A modular psu allows you to only use the power cables you need which reduces the clutter inside you case giving better air flow. ie the cables are plugged into the psu rather than just appearing from it...

Oh alright, that shouldn't be that big of a deal with my case, I wouldn't think. Would definitely be nice to have though. Thanks guys.

What is "Best"? There is no "best" performer really, there are about 7 or 8 PSUs that are all pretty much equal at this level. The best price/performance is usually the Corsair. These PSUs are all of similar quality and performance:

Corsair 750, Xigmatek 750, Hiper 780, Thermaltake Toughpower 750 - all of these are basically the same PSU (the CWT made PSH)

Silverstone OP750 and DA750 (same Impervio built psu on the inside, DA is modular)

PC P&C Silencer 750 (Seasonic built)

I'd go for the PCP&C 750W or the Silverstone DA750.
