Another "how much power do I need" thread - Page 4

post #31 of 44
your an idiot. XFX BE PSU's have seasonic internal's IE. TOP NOTCH..

do some research first then flame it.

and PC P&C are not as good as they once were.

Id'e take an XFX BE PSU or Corsair unit over PC P&C unit anyday.

Hell an xfx be unit is better then ur current unit

you have no research and are blindly flaming something you are clueless about.

Experience is irrelevant at this point. where is your common sence?

BFG = crap PSU's.

Corsair is top notch and are with out a doubt the most reccomended unit on these forum's.

I bet u think OCZ is good on PSU's to huh?

Top tier = corsair XFX Seasonic Antec enermax

Mid tier = NZXT Silverstone ABS ocz Thermaltake

Crap tier = Kingwin Coolmax Xion Rocketfish Ultra (Some) BFG Coolermaster

Anyone advising against PC P&C for being "outdated" and recommending XFX just plain has no experience.

come on, dont be such a troll. The XFX 750 and 850 are excellent and the 650 is still good.

And dont quote me on this, but I am pretty sure PC P&C has gone downhill since their prime.


@Yoko Littner
I wouldn't say "Corsair is top notch". Yes, Corsair does have some top-notch units, but some are very mediocre

Im thinking about going with the Hale90 850w for my new build. I have heard good things about them.

Oh and if you want a calculator to get an idea of how much power your set up will use, here you go:http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/ or http://educations.newegg.com/tool/psucalc/index.html

The Corsair HX750 and HX850 are the same internals as the Thermaltake Toughpower XT line (CWT DSG). The XFX Black Edition 750W and 850W are the same internals as the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760W and 910W (SeaSonic S12D / M12D). The XFX XXX 650W is a modification of the PC P&C 610W which is the same as the Corsair TX650 and HX620 (SeaSonic S12), and the Corsair HX650 is an updated version of that platform (SeaSonic S12E). The Corsair HX1000 is the same design as the Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W, 1200W, and 1500W (CWT PUC).

PC P&C was bought by OCZ in 2007, and the Silencer Mk. II line are cost-down, cheapened versions of OCZ's Z-series PSUs, which are made by Sirfa, a mid-range OEM.



You are, in all respects and with no exceptions, completely uninformed on power supplies and your opinion holds no weight until you can educate yourself. Please stop trolling this section.

No. Definitely give Newegg's calculator a slip, and the Antec and Thermaltake calculators are "tweaked" versions of the extreme.outervision.com calculator.

The Antec TruePower New 750W and XFX Black Edition 750W are the best deals on 750W PSUs at the moment.

Note that a 750W PSU is intended for a very heavy duty system, for instance an overclocked i7 and dual GTX570s. If you aren't going for a rig of that caliber you could probably get a cheaper lower wattage PSU, or a higher quality lower wattage PSU of similar price.

So are you saying the Hale90 is crap? If thats the case I will go with the AX850.

What about the system I posted at the start? 2 OC'd 460's and single slot 450 and a 3.6-3.8 i7 920...

Where'd I say that? Or even mention either of those PSUs?


The Hale90 is built on Superflower's Golden Green platform, and is very high quality. Performance lags very slightly behind the current top-tier platforms (CWT DSG, SeaSonic M12D, SeaSonic X), but is close enough you probably wouldn't notice the difference.
