  1. Unless you are planning on running 4 video cards or some silly setup like that... neither. Both of them are around 92% efficient, a percent or two either way isn't going to make a huge difference in your energy usage . . . at least not enough to care about (1% of 1000w is 10w, keep in mind . . . just switch an extra light bulb in your house to an LED and forget about it).
  2. are there anything special on corsair or you choose random?
  3. if you do some research you will find that the 90~% efficiency is when the load is about 50% of the PSU. either way both are good, i trust corsair a bit more because they are based on the seasonic ones. depending on your build you may not even need 1200 watts(#1 mistake PC rookies make is getting a huge psu for no reason).
  4. Corsair harbour PSU parts from Seasonic for some of their PSU (AX series)
  5. I swapped from Cooler master to Corsair. I have this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Professional-Series-Modular-Platinum/dp/B00A74X9SO and it is great. I have no problems with coil whine and the fan 120mm fan doesn't even activate until my system is consuming around 340w. The AX series really a re a good futureproof PSU.
  6. so all of you vote corsair?

    the AX1200i is made by flextronics, not seasonic


    flextronics? in the end it doesnt really matter i guess, like others said warranty is a big deal. Seasonic and Corsair among others are only as good as their warranty policy.

    no..
    Corsair is one of the well known brand.
    For making Ram , PSu etc..
    the technical reason for selecting corsair was that.
    Corsair use very high quality capacitors , inductors and transformers LIKE the MSI do..
    But MSI dont make PSU....
    and corsair PSU are extremely quite in my expirience...
    u hav to check sometime that even the fan is running of not :D
    thats why i say corsair..


    so wrong in so many ways...where to start

    Corsair use very high quality capacitors
    the main caps used in the enermax unit are provided by...some no name japanes company called Panasonic
    the main caps used in the corsair unit are...Panasonic

    But MSI dont make PSU....
    neither does Corsair but they both sell PSU, corsair just does a better job at it since they mainly focus on the front end of the business while MSI focuses on the back end.

    thats why i say corsair..
    you say corsair because that is what you have inside your PC (same reason for your MSI vote), that is not a valid reason, that is a fan boy reason.


    i hav a Cooler master :kaola:


    cooler master offers some good units, some average, and a lot of bad ones. brands mean nothing other then handling of the warranty.
  9. Agree with dirtyferret.
  10. My vote is still neither unless you have some need for 1000watts or more, you could save a pile of cash going with a 500-600 if you are doing a normal high end single video card, a 650 for a mid-sli, or 750 for high end SLI. There are very very few scenarios where a 1200 or 1500 watt power supply makes any sense. You also seem to worry about efficiency, but a power supply has an efficiency curve that usually peaks somewhere in the 60-75% usage range, so you should size your power supply accordingly.

    I mean if you are just going to be using a GTX 770 and an i5-4670k or something you are probably going to by supplying less than 300 watts to the computer even at your peak usage (at 90% efficient that's about 330 pulled from the wall) so in that case a 500 watt very efficient unit is far more cost effective and will power the machine more efficiently than the 1500 watt unit.
