Corsair TX650 V2 vs. other PSUs

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I'm wondering about the quality and acoustics of the Corsair TX650 V2. Very few reviews of this PSU on the net, that is why I'm asking you guys to help me!

The PSU is for my future rig (in my sig) and I have planned to buy the Antec truepower new 650W. However, saw the Corsair, which is about 10€ cheaper. Should I go with the Antec, or should I buy the Corsair?

I appreciate silence and reliability/effiecieny.

Oh, and I'm not going to run sli/xfire (if that make a difference).

Thanks alot for your help!

As far as I know both are made by SeaSonic, but the Corsair has slightly better performance, but it isn't modular.
Also you don't really need 650w for a single 560ti, 500w is more than enough.

The two are on par when it comes to electrical performance.

Ok, but what if, and when, I will OC both the CPU and the GPU. Is 500W enough then or sould I look at a 550W? Something like a Seasonic S12II-520 Bronze or a Antec High Current Gamer 520W? What do you think?

A SeaSonic S12II 520, Antec Neo Eco 520C or Antec HCG-520 would all be perfect. Since you said you won't be using SLI, you could easily go with the XFX 450W -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207012

Because of the lingering stigma against them, perhaps. I'd still skip the older StealthXStream and ModXStream units.

Okay, look, I understand your "Let's not buy Chinese crap" idea..

But when you start to only recommend top-of-the-line, I take offense.

OCZ is a very capable mid-to-upper-end brand and I have a lot of positive experience with them.

Read my post again. I only listed series that I know have been problematical in the past, and only the ones that are still readily available.

I have nothing against, say, the StealthXStream II.
