Yup. For the <750 watt range, my recommendation is always a Rosewill Capstone if it's available. Superflower Gold units are nice.

I have a friend with a 750 watt Fortress. Holy crap. All I can say is everything in and attached to that PSU is hilariously overbuilt. The cables could probably be used on a 3000 watt PSU without being too thin and the power cord they shipped with it can be confused with a python on first glance.

Otherwise, NZXT units are my next recommendation. If someone has a SeaSonic or Corsair unit in a "rate my build" thread, I'll always recommend they switch it out for something cheaper and modular. I always stress, as you do Shilka, that CorSonic isn't bad, but there are other options worth considering.

Pretty soon, CorSonic or SeaSair is all we'll have left and then quality can go to poo and prices through the roof.

And sory for the confusing no this thread is to inform people that there are PSU´s out there just as good or even a little better then the Corsair/Seasonic units if everyone will always say Corsair/Seasonic then smaller brand with good PSU´s could die out and that would be sad
I have worked with the NZXT HALE 90 series before and it is based on a Super Flower platform and so is is some of the Kingwin PSU´s i think not 100% sure here?
But anyway not many people seem to know about Super Fower/Kingwin so i wanted to talk more about them

I hear a lot of good things about Kingwin, also just an FYI people refer to Seasonic and corsair because they are widely available to the general public, in Australia the brands you speak of i have never heard of, until i joined these forums.

OP,
- Corsair spend a lot more money marketing their PSUs/products than all the others,
- They offer 5-7 year warranty (more than most),
- They generally have good PSUs,
- Their RMA service is very good,
- Most people are not PSU savvy and rely on newegg/amazon for reviews & recommend/buy Corsair cause it's a very safe bet.

RAIL Does Not Mean POWER.

Look up this Database before buying a PSU.
