Corsair - Gaming Series 800w ATX (anyone use?)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My antec 650w is making a horrible noise and i'm just going to return it, the only good looking PSU I see at best buy would be this one:

Corsair - Gaming Series 800-Watt ATX CPU Power Supply:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair+...715&st=corsair power supply&cp=1&lp=9

Anyone use this one or vouch for corsair PSU's? I don't plan on making it permanent just a few months.

Generally Corsair PSU's are rather good. they had a few models that wasnt so good to though but most of there PSU's are top of the line.

Why not go for this one ? its cheaper and still 50watts more then you had.

The Corsair GS 800 is mediocre. If you need a replacement now, then it'll do fine, but like you said, I wouldn't plan on keeping it. I don't know what the rest of your system looks like.
What you could do is RMA your Antec unit, use the Corsair while you wait for Antec to process the RMA, then return the Corsair when you get your Antec back.
post #5 of 15
Which Antec 650W do you have?

A "horrible noise" usually points to a bad fan, which is an easy fix, or RMA-able if you don't feel like it.

I wouldn't buy that particular PSU. I definitely wouldn't buy it from BB, either. I'd search newegg or Microcenter (if you have one nearby).

A decent 400-450W would run your system fine.

I would get the Corsair GS 700 watt and have them price-match micro center.
Unless you'd be willing to spend a bit more to get higher quality, you could get the Corsair TX850V2.
