Need Advice please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My current power supply just died, I need a replacement asap, I have this two options right now:
CM Silent Pro M 700W - RS700-AMBAD3-US
CM Ultimate Circuit Protection 700w - RS700-AAAAA3-US

I can get any of those they are about the same price.
I see the Silent Pro has 1 single 12v rail @ 50A and the UCP has x4 12v rails @ 19A each.

Any suggestions or tips? Which one would suit my system better?

Either is more than enough for your system, if those are your only options, personally I'd recommend the Silent Pro M700, its electrical performance is slightly superior and it's more recent.

I like a single 12v rail, so I also would go with the Silent pro as well.

Thanks for the replies I went for the Silent Pro M700 and just now realized what a crappy PSU I had before. My last PSU had trouble powering my system under full load, my OC wasnt stable at all.

Call me crazy but I could swear I was having some kind stuttering / choppiness before in heavy load video games like Crysis 1/2, DA2. I would have lived with those forever if I never changed the PSU.
