rig is in my signature, i will add a second optical drive and a SSD maybe a third hdd. thats all the upgrades ill be doing, i came up with 840w MAX wattage with everything connected and maxed out as i like to have a stable and head room psu, one of my requirements was dual EPS headers as my Board has 2x 8 pin cpu power..., also i might remove the watercooling loop within the next 3 month, and possibly add a 970 or 980x.

Heres what i could come up with after doing a few days worth of research, check the poll, and if you want, leave some comments as to why which what where psu to pick...

heres a shortcut to a comparison within newegg of all 5 power supplies next to each other:

I'm looking to buy the Corsair AX-850.. so get that one ;D
Seen some videos of it on YT and read up on it.. looks to be the best on that list If I'm honest.. Also the Corsair brand name is no match for the other contenders. (Says me with my little Chieftec )

All of them are fantastic. All have pros and cons against them. A lot of people will say the AX850, since it's based on SeaSonic's X platform; but at 850W+ that platform isn't all that much better than the M12D platform (used in the XFX) or the CWT DSG platform (used in the HX850) or the Superflower Golden Green platform (used in the NZXT and Kingwin LZG).

The Silverstone -P unit is a bit lower end than the others, but not so much so you'd see the difference. The Silverstone -G unit is based on an untested platform, but it's probably up there with the others or not far behind.

Corsair for sure based on the rating and past experiences of mine.
Movin' on up.

The AX850 powers up my system and has a lot of left over power to spare, this is my 2nd Corsair powersupply and it's been running fine for 2 months so far. I had to deal with Corsair's RMA supprt once for a pair of memory sticks and it was an easy process.

Those PSUs are all great but I fail to see why you need a 850W unit... you'd be fine on a good 550W unit, if you wanted lots of room you could get a 650W and be set... Even if you added a 2nd 6970 you'd still be fine.
