Hello there, I had a Corsair CX750M, but I don't know if the problem is in fact with the PSU, but I've test basically all the options I had and nothing worked, the system started for a second and reset in seconds until turn off directly on the psu. It was pointed out that the CX it's bad, another problem was the whining sound that I heard faintly, because the only thing that the psu really made work was the water pump during the leak test, but I saw a lot of people with the same problem during stress.

What I need now it's a good replacement. I need a good PSU around 750w for a good price range, semi-modular or modular, the case is very tight so, the less a amount of necessary cables, the best.

I've been looking at these ones, appreciate the input.

Go with the XFX. It is built by Seasonic, is an excellent product and is the least expensive of the 4. The difference in efficiency will not be noticed, and if you are thinking of how much it will save you in $$$ for electricity, that will be far less then what you will save with the purchase price.

I really don't mind the electricity, just came to far, and a lot of time to save a few bucks, just want something that will do the job.
But thank you, the XFX moved to the top of the list.

Andre, that's going to have to be personal choice and budget. The fully modular psu is really nice: Its performance will be exceptional and dealing with cables and cable routing will be much easier.
Some people would argue (since my psu is all modular I am not one of them) that having the main power and EATX 12V Aux. power (for CPU) hardwired is better and maybe safer (???); I have read that the psu manufactures have been known to admit this - never seen any proof of their statements,however. But that is the only advantage I would note of buying the first XFX we discussed.
If you can afford it, get the one for 129.91 - it's a really good unit.

Thank you again, I'll do some thinking during the weekend to decide between the two, but I think that the XFX pro (bronze) will be the chosen one, as semi-modular I saw that it has basically all I'll need hardwired and I'll only need to add sata power cable for the SSD/HDD.

Thank you, really appreciate your time and attention on replying the question.

Hey there again,

I'm about to make my choice and found this PSU http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-seasonic-m1211-750w...

Do you think would be better than the XFX, can't find much about it, the main difference seem to be that the Seasonic is quieter.


thanks
