PSU choice for rig and questions.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm currently in the process of setting up a new rig for myself and i need abit of help on deciding a PSU as I haven't been in the game in years.

This is the rig :

Cooler Master HAF 932 Big Tower

Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9(2x4gb)

HIS Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 "TURBO"

Intel Core™ i5 Quad Processor i5-2500K

ASUS P8P67 PRO, Socket-1155

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler(will likely be replacing stock fan with Akasa Amber 120mm

I'm not really sure about HDD yet but i will be doing a bit of OC'ing(not to extreme levels or anything) and i (Probably) at some point will go Crossfire setup with another 6950.


Now I'm looking at these PSU's

Corsair TX V2 750W PSU which is about which is 151 Dollars.

and

Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 700W PSU which is at 128 dollars due to a price drop.

Now a few questions is, will i be able to run Crossfire x2 6950's on this kind of rig with a 700W/750W psu?(if not even a slight overkill)

and which one of these would you recommend.

Other than that im *slightly*(slightly. im not skittish about noise i just can't stand high pitched whine noises from PSU's) worried about noise levels seeing as I'm air cooling a Air flow case I wouldn't want a too noisy PSU turning my PC into a Vacuum cleaner.

Excuse any error's please I'm Danish.

if you are planing a crossfire a 700w will be fine, if your not, it will still be fine, you could go 600w, but it all depends on personal preference, there are lots of people that will tell you to overkill the psu.... i am not one of them, i have an attachment to getting what i need and a little overkill, but not too much, i love to spend money but hate to waste it

oh yeah the seasonic x750 is on sale on newegg for 130 now.....

Either of them are fine but i'd take a preference to corsair just because of their customer service etc etc. But the coolermaster is 80 plus gold which for something like that from Corsair will put you back a hefty amount more.

Also, you've gone with the HAF 932. Doesn't this case have like 100 fans or something silly.

Both those PSUs are pretty good, and will handle your system with incredible ease. You could even drop down a good 650W and still run your system with crossfire and overclock. The Seasonic X series is nice in that it runs fanless until I think 40%? Someone can correct me, but it remains a very quiet unit. I'm not sure what prices are like in Denmark though.

Another possibility pricewise is the XFX XXX, which is the same as the TXV2 but often retails for less money (again, not a denmark price expert).

Well i've assembled this from a single shop for order which i'd prefer to keep to a single shop for easier customer service in case of brakedowns and receipts and so on this however also restricts me to the sites offer on PSU's i could if it's REALLY neccesary prob still find other pages but atm i can't find a seasonic on the site..unless they called them something else.

and yeah the HAF932 1x 230mm Front, 1x 230mm Top, 1x 230mm Side, 1x 140mm Back.
