Help with PSU choice

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was recently talked in to buying a Cooler master GX 750w and after reading all the reviews I am really mad. I plan on taking it back and geting PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk II 750 Watt ATX Power Supply or a Kingwin
MKX-850W 850 Watt Modular Cable ATX Power Supply. Reading the sticky about recommened PSU i see the Sliencer Mk II is on the list, i just wanted a secound (or more) opinon on which one would be better.

This PSU is going to be powering a
i7 950
ASUS Sabertooth X58
6Gb(3x2Gb) of G.skill ram
1 opital drive
3 HDDs
and a GeFroce 560 Ti at a later date,Sli maybe at a really later date, 8800 GT right now.

GTX560 is 170w. 8800GT full at 108w. Based on what you have, that SLI +8800GT rig is around 620w. Depending on budget and location, you can take a look at the Antec TP-750 something like that to give you some headroom in case you may add components.

I vote for the PC Power & Cooling 750. I have a Silencer 750 Quad for 5 years and never had an issue. Check with PC P&C's site directly, as they do sell re-certified units. Mine is one of them.

The PC P&C Silencer II 750 is an average PSU.
Nothing compared to Seasonic-based PC P&C of the past.

There is though, a PC P&C Classic Silencer 760 that they just released.

80PLUS Silver, and based on a Seasonic S12D platform.
The only drawback is noise level; as the power supply uses the old 80mm rear fan design instead of the bottom-mounted 120mm fan.
