$59 after $20 MIR a good deal for Corsair 650TX PSU?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Today is the last day to get this Corsair 650TX PSU through the Egg for the end price of $59. It is on sale for $89 - $10 promo code (EMCKJJG23), less a $20 MIR, bringing it to $59.

Has anyone seen better prices or is seeing a better price rare for a great quality and efficient PSU that is 650W?

Edit: This is for a new build. Don't look at my current sig rig.

It's a solid deal; though you don't really need it.

I am building a new rig so I do indeed need a new PSU This isn't about need, but more of whether it is a great deal or not so I know if I should jump on this.

I won't likely be running any graphics card that takes more than what the GTX580 needs anyway.

Does modular really make much of a difference though?

Modular makes cable management much easier.

Yeah, that's a solid deal for a nice seasonic unit. I'd hop on that if that meets your rigs' specs.

I know what it is supposed to do, but from my personal experience it seems the only way that may help is if you don't use a particular cable. Then you just unplug it. And most of the time I find myself using all but one as each cord has multiple individual connectors and even if I just use one those then I have to use the whole cord. I don't know if the one cord I may not use will really be worth the extra premium in price. I don't even see any 600+ Watt PSU's that are decent for less than $90. Does anyone else see one?

As far as the rig it will be going in and concerns for power and connectors it will likely be this: 2500K, ASUS P8P67 Pro, Crucial SSD, 2 F3 1TB Spinpoints, 6 GT fans, 2x4GB ripjaws DDR3, and GTX 460, and 8800 GT for Physx. I may look towards an upgraded graphics card in the future such as the 580.

It only does if you don't use a lot of the cables. I've seen systems with modular PSUs where pretty much all the cables are in use. What's the point then?

Its pretty pointless when that's the case. However when you only have a few plugged in it does help massively.

That depends if it's old stock or the replacement PSHII platform TX. Then again, either way it's a solid unit. And modular helps running cables, you can unplug the cable at both ends, and route from the device to the PSU, and you only need to push one connector through the management holes...
I just redid my rig in a new case with a fully modular PSU, and tidying the cables was a LOT easier than with the spaghetti monster of my old TX.

Well, there will be three SATA power adapters right off the bat with the three hard drives, then a power connector to the PSU, whatever the GTX 460 takes, plus potentially a media bay drive (for SD cards, etc.). Of course it will have one or two Optical drives as well using SATA. Beyond fans and maybe a RASA water cooler or H70 I am drawing a blank.
