Looking for help picking a PSU for my set up.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone on OC.net. I am having a problem picking a PSU for my current build. Was hoping if I can get some good advice and info on this matter at hand. I will list the parts that I will be using on my build.

Intel I 7 950 Bloomfield would like to oc this to 4.2 on WC.
EVGA X58 4 Way Classified Mobo.
12 GB's of CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 Ram
3 X EVGA GTX 570's Tri Sli ( I plan to Oc slightly )
1 X Sony BWU-500S optical drive
3 Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH120G2K5 2.5 in Raid 0
1 X Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
Ek H30 Supreme HF 360 Advanced Liquid Cooling Kit
5 Case Fans
Lamptron FC Touch ( 6 chan Fan cont. )

As far as what I had on mind for PSU I came up with these.
Corsair AX 1200
Thermaltake Toughpower TP-1350M

Not sure if any of these will get the job done, was told by EVGA the AX1200 may run at peak.

EVGA is full of crap. A good 850W would support this system, but get a 900-1000W unit and you'll be 110% fine.

Edit: here are some good units:
Antec HCP-1000
SeaSonic X 1000W
Enermax Modu87+ 900W
Kingwin LZG-1000
NZXT Hale90 1000W
OCZ ZX 1000W
Rosewill Lightning 1000W
Sapphire Pure PSU 950 or 1050W
Silverstone ST1000-G

You may be unable to get some of these depending where you live. Also the first two I listed aren't out as far as I know, but I don't know when you'll be building your computer, so maybe they will be out by the time you do build it. It's a reasonable expectation that the SeaSonic X 1000 will be the best 1000W ever made, but we'll see

Thanks a lot Shub. The SILVERSTONE Strider Gold ST1000-G seems really good but comparing it to Corsair AX1200 should I worry about the less Amps on the SILVERSTONE Strider Gold ST1000-G single rail?

No, you shouldn't worry You're comparing a 1200W unit to a 1000W unit, naturally the 1000W will have less amps. What matters is whether 1000W is enough for the system you have in mind -- and yes, it will be enough
