Corsair Vs OCZ - Page 4

post #31 of 54
There is no XFX BE 650W. There's only the XFX XXX 650W which is actually slightly behind the TX650.

Man, sometimes I see them being called "BE" and "XXX", it confuses me. A couple ('bout 2 or 3?) of them I listed simply because they're a better buy over the Corsair (price wise) with similar/close performance.

Corsair and XFX are both seasonic and p. Much the same.

IMO corsair AX owns all

However it dosent mean its an inferior unit by any means.
So what's wrong with Seasonic being the leader? That's why they earn their gold awards. The Hale90 Super Flower is not a bad unit but when comparing it to 80 Plus efficiency the Seasonic performs better overall in the tests. But the 80 Plus standardization testing is flawed because they do it in a controlled environment that has temps of 23C. Not everyone is going to live in the same part of the world and real world ambient temps are going to be different, some people are going to live in colder places that can hit 23C year round. Some people are in hotter climates that are going to hit 32-43C. This is going to affect their efficiency at load.
The manufacturers don't reveal what equipment they use for testing 80 Plus Gold, so how are we going to effectively rely on every PSU that gets stamped 80 Plus Gold certified when everyone does it differently? But overall Seasonic is still top dog.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...fication/742/2

But if you ask most people what PSU they recommend, they will mostly say Corsair/XFX which is Seasonic or CWT for some of the past Corsair units, then some say Antec == Delta & even Seasonic for Truepower Series, and Seasonic itself. You don't hear anyone recommend NZXT/Kingwin == Super Flower because they don't have huge market dominance. Very few also recommend Silverstone but they use too many PSU providers. But you don't hear anyone recommend Thermaltake Tough Power !

SeaSonic excels in performance. Don't forget that they aren't the best at build quality. Delta's still probably top dog there. SeaSonic's about average for an enthusiast brand.

I've found that to be another thing people don't seem to quite understand often. A PSU with excellent build quality can have pretty average performance, and vice versa.

It's just the price of the Hale90 units really... they would get far more recommendations if it came in at a lower price point.

So what if XFX and Corsair both use Seasonic? They don't always use the same builds (i.e the XFX 750W = M12D)

And the Corsair AX doesn't "own all".

I sense thread closure... These never last. But as far as Corsair goes, there are units I would recommend, and there are units which I wouldn't. (I wish they'd get around already with the replacement of the lower wattage TX models tho) I never recommend OCZ, as I know there are other brands that offer as good or better performance for less money. Although I'd say if you -do- have an OCZ, it won't explode and take your rig, your house and even you yourself with it.

There's no flaming, trolling or off topic-ness in here so I don't see why you would see it being closed.

Let the flaming begin!

In all seriousness though you can't judge a power supply purely by its brand, there's a lot more to it than that. Personally I just always buy corsair/seasonic since it's a known quantity. Maybe I'll start branching out for my next rig with some of the suggestions from this thread.

Also, the Superflower Platinum unit isn't the first to meet 80PLUS Platinum; it's just the best so far, and I'd in fact pick it over the SeaSonic X560. But they're only selling like a dozen of them so far, and in Taiwan only.
I heard Delta made some 80+ Platinum contraption a while back. You know anything about that?
