Since Cablemod is having delivery troubles with the virus and such and I bought a 1080 Ti Lightning X that needs 3 PCI-E 8 pins and my cheap secondhand Seasonic Focus Plus Gold misses the second PCI-E cable I was thinking i'm going to upgrade to a higher efficiency.
I have to stay with Seasonic as that way I can keep the existing cables in my case which are all pre-routed already and can just add a second PCI-E. Also some of them are already CableMod customs so I'm not switching brands.
However, as jonnyguru hasn't posted a review in like a year, I have no idea which Seasonic model would be the go-to now.
All the modern Seasonic PSU's use the same cables according to Cablemod's compatibility charts but like, Prime vs Prime Ultra vs Prime TX, GX, PX.. I don't know anymore...
I was looking at the Prime PX-850 as that's sort of reasonably priced but.. no reviews of it whatsoever lol. There's a regular Prime 1300w for the same price, around €200, the Focus GX-850 is not more efficient but is WAY cheaper at like, €124.
Then there's the Focus PX-850 which is super cheap for a 85ow Platinum unit at like, €149 but again, no reviews. Is it any good.
I would've loved to be able to buy a Phanteks Revolt 1000w or 1200w as they are Seasonic based but they are nowhere to be found here and neither are the ASUS ROG Seasonic PSU's..
