M12II 620 or X650? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
TPN-650. Indy regulated and slightly better than the M12II (a little cheaper too). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...021&Tpk=tp-650

Appreciate it, but went with the Kingwin as it's on sale, higher wattage, and mostly modular.

Poor choice, you'll be at the crap end of its efficiency curve and will never use the wattage unless you go dual GTX480s or GTX580s.

But it's your money

Do I really NEED the X650, or can get away with the cheaper, but still quality M12II?
The "quiet factor" isn't really a big deal, as my rig is fairly loud anyway.


You wouldnt be able to hear the PSU with those ultra kaze's/

It's probably too late but I just wanted to chime in regarding the mail-in rebate on the XFX 850W -- I understand not liking MIRs but XFX is good for it and they are pretty quick to process them. I remember getting the rebate for my XFX 750W within about a month, in the form of a check, just the way I like it. It couldn't have gone more smoothly.

It allows me the opportunity to do so. I'm not looking to perfectly pair a new PSU for every rig I decide to build/upgrade. In a perfect world we could all afford to get just the right PSU for a certain setup, but I am a user that upgrades over time rather than buying a completely new rig every so often. I guess I would rather have the overhead than the efficiency. If, for some unknown reason, I do aquire a couple of 480's, I don't have to worry about buying another PSU.
It's not like I picked up a 1500wt to run a 4670. A couple hundred watts more than I need coupled with a few dollars a month I didn't save are not going to make me cry at night. I do appreciate the advice, but I think our purchasing criteria is somewhat different.

I've got a fan controller for non-gaming times. They can be fairly quiet when needed, but I only do it when the GF wants to watch a movie via Tversity or something, and at night.

Got the Kingwin today, and although I don't have a multimeter to test everything out, I'm pretty happy with it.
I will let people know that Kingwin has lowered the number of non-modular cables down to just the 2x4 pin and the 20+4 pin, which is kinda nice considering they apparently used to have 2x6pin PCIe cables mixed in there as well.
The cables aren't overtly long unfortunately. the 20+4 was long enough to be managed nicely, but the PCIe 6pin was a bit of a stretch. This is probably due to my case design as much as anything else though. I guess I'll have to get some extensions soon if I want to xfire another 5770.
