yet another psu thread - Page 2

post #11 of 14
What, the HX1000 and the TPQ-1200? The Corsair is overpriced and meehhhhhh compared to the competition, and the Antec is starting to show its age as well. Frankly, if you're the type of person willing to spend the $2000 necessary to consume >1000W, you can probably afford to step it up to the AX1200 or HCP-1200.

still the corsair and the antec right? isnt the- nvm, I looking at a different model from what you are referring.

so basically these two units correct?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=hcp%201200

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...corsair%201200

is the difference between the two marginal and simply up to brand preference?

Yeah. Corsair is more modular and has a seven year warranty, but has no +12V OCP (aka, "single rail") so if there's a parasitic short you're screwed. Also been known to have whining issues.

The Antec is a slightly (and I stress "slightly") better performer and has proper +12V OCP, but is only partially modular and has a five year warranty.

hmm, then the antec psu might be the winner for me then lol, corsair may have the longer warranty, but I would rather stay away from undesirable results. and in both cases both would have to be resized for the wire length as its all going into my Vulcan o.O

Thanks for the Information, it is much appreciated
