AXi is way better than the RM Series, but again, return your defective PSU to the store you bought it from. Say this, exactly, "It's defective". Ask for a refund. Don't let them swindle you into an exchange for another RM850.

 

Also, yes, the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 is a high-end PSU. However, will you be overclocking your GTX 980s? If so, then how far do you plan to overclock them? Will you increase their voltages? If so, then by how much?

I dont know if that video just isnt capturing the sound that those power supplies were really making or if those were just popping instead of exploding.

I am not exaggerating at all, it sounded like a hand gun going off. It didnt just pop, it freaking exploded. sniper.gif

I dont overclock anything anymore. The 20% increase in power consumption and head output, reduced system stability and the potential of frying the component isnt worth the 4% performance gain to me anymore.

I might push the OC Genie button on my motherboad, but I doubt ill even do that.

If you can get an AXi then do it, it is made by Flextronics and a much much better PSU. Even the regular AX is a huge jump up, which is made by Seasonic.

EVGA G2 is also really good in the event that they won't "upgrade" you to an AXi(which is more than likely going to be the case).Also depending where you shop the EVGA GS series(new lineup) is pretty much equally as good as the G2 and can be found cheaper depending on sales.

G2 made by Super Flower and GS is made by Seasonic

Then your power consumption while gaming with two GTX 980s and a 4770K would never exceed about 400-450W. So, please don't waste your money on an 850W PSU. It's just extremely unnecessary overkill that doesn't benefit you in any way unless you decide to overclock the living hell out of your GTX 980s. Y'know? These video cards at stock simply sip power (but they chug it very hard when they're overclocked heavily - NVIDIA is really impressing the socks off me with these cards).

 

Here's a PSU that we believe was made using the SeaSonic G Series:

 

The 550W EVGA GS Series: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA-Modular-Supply-220-GS-0550-V1/dp/B00UVN20UO

 

It has 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors, and it's only $79.99 shipped. Or if you get it from Newegg, it's $79.99 shipped and you can get a $15 rebate card and $5 off using the Promo Code AFNJ1316 until the end of the business day on May 3rd.

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438049

 

So, technically, it would be $59.99 shipped from Newegg (but, it's before tax - I know that you're in California. It's still cheaper than $79.99 shipped).

 

If you're not comfortable with a 550W PSU, then there's the 650W EVGA GS Series for $94.99 shipped: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA-Modular-Supply-220-GS-0650-V1/dp/B00UVN20AO

 

Or there's the 650W SeaSonic G Series for $99.99 shipped: http://www.amazon.com/SeaSonic-650-Watt-CrossFire-Certified-SSR-650RM/dp/B00918N4A0 Again though, we believe that the EVGA GS Series was made using the SeaSonic G Series, so I wouldn't spend $5 more on the same PSU - especially since the EVGA GS Series is fully modular.

I appreciate the input and understand where you're coming from. But for the build I am currently doing, I wanted to keep it as quiet as possible, so I wanted a power supply that the fan will be off at idle, to do that I need to a higher wattage PSU so Im in the lower percentile current draw during gaming to keep the fan from coming on.

Unfortunatly, I bought this power supply entirely with gift cards to best buy that I got for my birthday, so whatever PSU I get, has to be one that best buy offers.

The 650W GS Series would provide that silence. You're not going to hear a 120mm fan spinning at slow speeds. My HX650's fan supposedly spins at 800 RPM while there's hardly any power being pulled from it, but I can't hear it - not even if I put my ear right next to it.

EVGA G2 PSUs has an eco mode switch that keeps the fan off at idle and low loads until a temperature threshold activates the fan. My 850 G2 has one.
