Recommend me the best 850W PSU

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Title says it all, I want a new PSU, 850W should be plenty, has to be fully modular, don't care about the price, just want the best.

In case you are interested its to supply my sig rig plus these future upgrades.

2 x GTX 580 (Will have a different MOBO by then)
5 x SATA HDDs

Best fully modular 850w PSU? Not many choices... from them, definitely the AX850.

If you want a fully modular unit, your choices are very limited. It's between the Silverstone ST85F-P and the Corsair AX850 or the SeaSonic X850 (same unit as the Corsair, just the cables are sleeved differently and Corsair has a 7-year warranty vs. SeaSonic's 5).
Obviously the Silverstone isn't 80 Plus Gold (but it's still Silver approaching Gold) but it's a lot cheaper and it is an awesome unit. Up to you.
There's also a very newly released Silverstone Strider Gold 850W but I haven't seen any reviews of those units yet.

I think you should take a look at the Cougar line.They are excellent and look awesome.I prefer the red/white/black "silver" line-but the new "gold" line is black/gold.SO far I have heard nothing but great reviews.

Newegg only has the 700w gold but I'm sure they will get it in soon.

Im limited by what is sold in Australia, Corsair, Silverstone, Seasonic. No Cougar that ive ever seen.

Also It doesn't have to be exactly 850W, but I ran a PSU calculator and It gave me 700 and something.

Whats wrong with fully modular? i just hate having cables inside my case that aren't used?
post #9 of 21
Money no object....AX850. Cables are all black, virtually zero ripple, fan that spins when needed.

Industry leading 7 year warranty.

Second choice would be Seasonic X-850

Yes it was what I was leaning towards. And I do want all black sleeved cables.

Stupid question, the info for the AX850 says it has 12x SATA, now does that mean it has 12 individual cables or say 2 with four connectors on each in series?
