Seasonic M12II 620 or XFX XXX 650

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im going to get a new PSU, but i just can buy it from newegg, amazon or tigerdirect, after checking the psu threads and recommendations there's nothing about xfx xxx more than issues, but theres nothing about seasonic.

Seasonic
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151095
XFX XXX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207002

There a lot of bad comments about XFX but looks awesome with that green fan anyway i dont care about that and theres another model of XFX just not XXX series

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207007

isn't bad at all i think and its a bit cheaper than xxx and seasonic, what do you say guys?

if necessary my rig is
Sandy bridge 2500k
P8P67 PRO
x2 2GB Gskill ripjaw series
x2 500gb Sata3 7200rpm
Gigabyte 560ti SOC not doing sli


I was going to choose antec Tp-650 but there are more comments about clicking and pitching sounds than xfx, anyway i think that antec isn't modular.

Thanks a lot in advice.

I don't know how you managed to mess up all your links, but... yeah, they're messed up.
Anyway, all XFX units are made by SeaSonic, so you're getting SeaSonic quality for less than what SeaSonic sells it for.
There's nothing wrong with the XFX XXX units. Sometimes you get a bad fan that clicks, if it annoys you you can return, exchange or RMA the unit. There's another XFX XXX unit with a gray fan, and an XFX Core Edition that's identical to the Corsair TX650V2. All are good units.

That said, if you're not doing SLI... then you should save your money and not get the Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard. And in turn, you can get a less powerful PSU. A good 450W unit would be perfect for your system. Look into the XFX 450W.

Well then it's up to you in the end.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207007 is the best deal you're going to get if you send the mail-in rebate. It's the same unit as the one with the green fan -- just not with a green fan.
With no rebate, the Antec TP-650 is the next best deal, especially if you use that $10 off promo code which expires tomorrow.

Im going with the xfx just for 2 reasons:
I wanted that antec for the price -10bucks but with that reputation xfx won.
