Which 750W PSU for my build? TP-750 vs 750W PC Power&Cooling?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,

It's time I got down to the part of getting a PSU for my build. I was looking at these 2 PSU and read on the forums itself that the 750W PC Power&Cooling isn't that bad. But overall, I haven't heard anything about them compared to Antec's TP-750.

So, looking at these two deals:
Antec TP-750:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371025

PC Power & Cooling / Silencer / 750-Watt:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...717&CatId=2533

Which one seems to be better for me if my build included:
CPU: i5 -2500k OCed Perhaps to maybe 4.5ghz+?
Mobo: Asus P8p67 PRO
GPU: Maybe Sapphire's 6950 2gb Unlocked to 6970?
(But a high chance to do a crossfire in the future)
Hard drive: Samsung 1TB F3
Ram: 8GB G.Skill (or some other brand, getting this next)
PSU: One of those above?
Case: Lian Li's K62 or NZXT Tempest Evo
Optic (CD/DVD/Blu-ray): DVD/CD Combo (Asus)
Cooling: Cooler Master 212+? (Would that be good for overclocking?) or should I go extreme with either noctua nh-d14 or noctua nh-c14?

Also, out of those PSU's, which one would you say would be the quieter one out of the two? Build Quality?

Thanks every!

Spend the extra $30 and get the TP-750.
The old PCP&C Silencer 750W is a 5-year-old unit, it's kinda loud, not very efficient, and an average performer by modern standards.

Antec TPN is the better choice, and it probably definitely will be more quiet.

Definitely the antec. I've never even heard of pc power and cooling but it is clear that it is a bargain brand. A PSU is one of the most important parts of your computer and it is important to not cheap out on it. I might even suggest looking into a corsair psu, although the antec would probably be fine for your needs.

Eh... no, PCP&C is not a bargain brand. It was a big player a few years ago. The Silencer 750W is an excellent unit made by SeaSonic, it's just outdated by today's standards.

Would the Antec's 4 +12V Rails effect anything in the build? I read that a Single rail PSU is better or was I wrong? (read wrong?

Nah, it's a non-issue, don't worry about it.

Is there any other PSU I should consider for around that price or less that's better or as good?
Thanks everyone for your replies.

For the same price, no. The TP-750 is the best deal by far.
