You're right, Corsair do deliver quality units, most of the time. That doesn't make them the best choice, though.

By recommending Corsair units to *everybody* seeking a new PSU, you're potentially wasting their money. Think about that.

Well that makes perfect sense ... I just never figured it was possible 2 do this ... are all cards that are based on the same architecture the same ??

Ok ... So if Corsair is the band wagon ... what do you use ?? ...

SLI and other multiple card configs can bring performance issues in certain cirumstances, however rare they may be. Generally speaking it is better to go with a single strong card over two weaker cards. Not that I've ever had problems with xfire, 2x4850's and 2x5770's. Was impressed by both but chose a single high end card this time around.

Not all cards are able to unlock, but generally they are based on the same arch for that particular series. It's sort of like how some x2 or x3 AMD CPU's were able to unlock extra cores, it's just another case of disabling hardware and not removing it.

In regards to Corsair, read this info post from Phaedrus2129, our resident PSU expert.

Specificly
Quote:
The TX650-850 have relatively low efficiency compared to some new contenders in their price range such as the SeaSonic S12D/E units and the Antec True Power New (also made by SeaSonic).
In short, there are better units out there right now instead of the TX650.

I am just wondering how good this PSU is ...

My rig is listed but I will be upgrading to a i5 760 (will definately be overclocking) and I am wanting 2 upgrade my GFX card to the GTX 580

I have never used ati but I am not against them so if ati is better than the GTX 580 please let me know ...


All information would be greatly appreciated ...

Kind Regards.

Just bought one for a friend, it will run almost anything you throw at it, probably even SLI/CF but it would be pushing it a bit. Since you said you won't be CF'ing or SLI'ing you should be good thumb.gif

EDIT by the sound of it there are better PSU's around than this specific corsair, I say the seasonic then (or the antec if the seasonic is out of your budget).

I have never had the fortune of running SLI\CF ... maybe due to ignorance ... but since my 1st PCI gfx card right till now ... it's always just been 1 ... why fix what ain't broke ... lol ... ... but maybe I will give it a try and see how I like it ...

Maybe it is easier for ppl outside this country to get great deals ... I can't get any Seasonic psu's (branded as Seasonic) ... but 4 the same price as my TX650W ... the closest I can get with antec is the True Power 550w or the 620W High Current Gamer ... ... which the TX650 beats ... Not 2 mention a great 5 year warranty ...

Actually, the True Power New 550/650 and the HCG-620 (which is an S12II) are both better than the TX650.

Well, you didn't list your location, so I'm not sure what you are trying to say to me. I never said you need a direct Seasonic brand, there are plenty of Seasonic OEMs made by Antec and the like.

I didn't even say you need a new PSU. Since you already have the TX650, you are fine. No need to upgrade, it's a fine unit. I ran one with an OCed 965 and xfired 5850s without a problem. I'm just saying that IF you where to buy a new one, there are better choices for the same price range (but obviously dependent on the distributer).

Antec True Power New 550w says :

4x 12v rail ... I have read that Single rail PSU's are much better for high end systems so that users can avoid the whole 12v rail loss where they use less than what the 12v rail supplies and what is left over can't be passed onto another rail ... ALSO ... combine 12v rail = 504w = +\- 42amp on teh 12v ... ... the TX650w supplies 52Amps ... ... 10 less ??

Hey just_nuke_em,

I apologize if I came off aggressivly ... Having a bit of a rough day ...


I am from South Africa ... the Continent of rip off's ... lol ... All I am saying is that the TX650W for R850 (us +\- $120) in this country is a bargain worth grabbing ...

Once again ... I apologize
