I need help deciding which PSU both to me and the same price ( LONG story) but both at same price to me and I need to know by like tonight, I really need this to be future proof I plan to upgrade to maybe a 8 core FX, GTX 780 or something. so it needs to last a while.the two PSU's

Thernal take SMART 750w

Corsair, hands down.

650W is plenty for both of those upgrades together, and Corsair makes quality PSUs. Thermaltake does not.

Is it really worth the extra amps and more power in general, still sacrifice that for the corsair? The ther thermal make got good reviews

Being that with a 780 and FX 8350, both overclocked you wont be drawing more than 500W MAXIMUM...you arent sacrificing anything. Regardless of the reviews, Corsair PSUs are built with better quality components and the extra power does absolutely nothing for you.

How 900w? I have heard of some you can do that with but how?overclcocked PSU?

Would the tx650 v2 be sufficient for a fx- 8350 OCed and a GTX 780 OCed and a custom water cooling loop?

And I heard sometimes when the fan isn't spinning on the PSU it makes a high pitch squeal?

Yes, more than sufficient.

I can't say anything about the squeal? Never had mine do that or heard of one doing that.

As for the power delivery : They manufacture PSU according to a certain design, that design is then rated to deliver 650W(rated) within certain parameters, parameters like, temps, noise, efficiency.
Now my guess is the manufacturer of this PSU(Seasonic) standards are VERY high, so they underrate their PSU instead of overrating them like most manufacturers.
It has nothing to do with overclocking.

I understand, and that's just your speculations, that's isn't confirmed is it?

All in all I think I might go with the corsair, even tho the other has more watts and amp, I guess quality means everything.

The Corsair CX models are their bottom of the line power supplies. Not bad by any means, but I would still say stick with the TX series...ill say again, that TX650 power supply has more than enough to overclock everything and still leaves plenty of headroom. If you are dead set on overpowering your rig with 750 watts, there is a TX750 model as well.

Its confirmed that the TX V2 PSUs deliver much more power than rated and that it uses some ofg the best quality components. What Seasonics reasoning is behind it, is just specultaion.

Its not that im stuck on the 750w I just want the best bang for my buck, and more amps, so it will last longer. See what happen was I bought a CX500 and I thought it was gonna last me a long time( with like a core 2 duo and a gt 610) well then I built a new computer and im using 450W still 50w but my brother is buying my cx500 so I got to get a new one, and later, I want to make sure I can use this for my future 8 core and high end gpu builds, so yeah I just want the best for the best price and more amps and stuff so it will last longer into the future.

Yes, that is what I am saying, read the review i posted. Then you will understand.

Just because a power supply provides 750W does not mean that it will last longer than than a 650W power supply. It just means it provides 100W more power to the computer. Overpowering a computer does nothing for you.

Do yourself a favor and put your future computer in here and see the power your computer actually needs.

So really the TX650 V2 can preform past what it actually is labeled as. So out of all three the TX650 still wins even though it beats the both of the others, beating the thermaltake in quality and the CX in that it is just a better series PSU?

UGGH I hate bringing back up but, before I almost ordered it I found this one in the todays ad http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... so its between this one and the TX650 V2


That one is not in the same price range, it is better in some ways. Also very high build quality.
If you willing to spend that much for no reason, get the Silent Pro.

out of my price range but that would be nice, the only reason I can get the coolmaster is because I have got coupons and gift cards which makes the coolmaster to ME only 10$ more but I would rather keep my 10$ to go towarad a headset later, but that s why I asked if it was that much better like quality and more watts ( quality especially, The TX Vs the silent pro m2)

What do you mean out of your range? Its discounted to $89, same as the TX650, while the CM SilentPro is $119. Are you looking at Newegg as well or another site?

Its modular and similar in quality. If modular is worth 10$ to you, then do it.

no it is 89$ but for ME after everything the coolmaster I can get it down to 59.99$ and the TX I can get it down to 49.99$ and I was asking if the quality is any better or worst, being I do not have a lot of cable management inside my case

i think im going with the cool master, been reading and yeah they say this cool master series is made by enhance electronics, and the corsair is made by seasonic. so I am thinking they are the same build quality.

Ah, I see, well in that case, its like Novuake said, is $10 worth it for modular for you? It really boils down to whether or not the extra cables will be restricting airflow to the case. How did the cabling for the CX500 affect the cooling in your case before? If the cooling was fine with the CX500, then it will also be fine with the TX650 since there is only one extra cable. If you were having issues, then it is probably worth it to get the modular CoolerMaster.

In general I find that Seasonic is one of the best. But that is a good Coolermaster.

ok all-in-all say the coolmaster is only 10$ more( which it is in my case) which would you buy, and I will end up getting a 8 core fx and maybe a gtx 780 and oc both. Which would you buy

Corsair TX650 V2 = 50$
Coolmaster = 60$

I would still get the Corsair. But just because I already have had such a great experience with my current one.

I have not personally used that Coolermaster, so yeah.

Alright thanks soooo much for your input, and yeah I really have had a wonderful experience with my corsair now, but I think im gonna give cool master a try, it I don't like it I know to go back to the best of the best.
