Corsair...never again - Page 2

post #11 of 51
Thread Starter 
im very tempted to eat my words and give them another go.
they got one HX1000 in stock and a HX850
but not sure the 850 will be enough if overclocking later and a few more drives?
the corsair calculator says 950 for my setup with another card

Both those units are typically quality builds. I'd suspect either the shop of being shady, or something in your build of being wrong.

850Watts will be more than enough for SLI 580s with overclock and HDs, don't listen to calculators.

Mine has been chugging along fine now for almost 3 years too

Best part is I only paid £137 for it and it's currently £173 on Novatech :l

mad thing is.. i only changed my psu becouse my gf's gameing rig kept shutting down when i gave her my old gtx280 and it was down to power.
she insisted that i just get a new one for me and she take my old one. she normally has all my "hand me downs" anyway
everything was fine till then
