Corsair AX750 or Seasonic x750 Gold? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Both are excellent PSU. Warranty is different by 2 years in favor of Corsair. I had no problems with customer service or warranty with either company, but Corsair's way of handling RMA of PSU is very efficient.

Both units occasionally go on sale for $129 after rebate or coupons.

Lastly, you should also consider the Seasonic X650. It will easily power (2) 6950 and performs better than it's big brother the X750 and the AX750.
The X650 occasionally are on sale for $109 AR.biggrin.gif

But say the rare chance a person gets a dud of a PSU, which company offers better customer support and RMA service, Corsair or Seasonic?

Both are of excellent performance because (i think) they both use the same Seasonic Unit ?

Anyway i'd go seasonic seam's silly to pay Corsairs for Seasonic's parts.

They are practically the same, but not exactly the same. The AX750 internals and platform bares more resemblance to the X760 then X750.

They're both solid, but if you are actually considering trifire, an 850Watt would be on the safer side. Plus, It's modular. There's a gold if you really want it.

I just got the corsair one because of this review http://www.anandtech.com/show/4011/c...50-80plus-gold

My thoughts where:
1. my system will rarely draw more than 50% capacity ~400 W, and this psu shines in that range. 0-18 db and 91% efficiency
2. It gives me room for a 2nd gfx card, or dual cpu (I do science om my computer ^^)

the article mentions that it's almost the same as the seasonic one.

Wait wait. I'm not a professional on these things but there is something people haven't stated yet.

Seasonic has made other power supplies for other companies. Even Corsair and XFX. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I don't mean "made for other companies" to the point its really the whole power supply is by them but Seasonic is involved in some parts. I've seen even someone open a XFX power supply and it has Seasonic written inside.

Hope it helped.

I'm unsure of what point you're trying to make here. As far as this thread goes, the two PSU's being compared are literally the exact same thing internally, they just have a bit different aesthetics and warranty details.

Sorry if it sounded bad. I meant also the same thing. They are both the same thing so he doesn't have to worry much. Both are good and both are even priced the same.

But I agree on the cables. Better cables mean when you overclock you need to have good wires. Bad quality wires can be burned.

But for me 5years is enough and if you ask me why cos in the future its better switching power supply for future upgrading. Even in a year look how many things come out. I'm just trying to enlighten the person not to worry.
