my rig is

CPU: Intel Core I7 4770K
MOBO: ASrock Z87M Pro4
RAM: GSkill AEGIS 2x8GB DDR3 1600mhz
HDD: Seagate 2TB Baracuda HDD
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
GPU: ASUS GTX780TI DC II OC


I'm planning to buy the m12 as i'm on a tight budget. But will it last me long? More than a gold?

i'm afraid that the bronze will be less reliable than the gold?

Will it be good enough?

The S12 II and M12 II are different from the S12D/M12D. They are still excellent units though.

If you are on a budget I would suggest the Seasonic G 650. Plenty of power, 80 Plus Gold certified, semi modular and scores a 9.8/10 in jonnyguru testing.

All for about $100.




yeah, i'm thinking of the m12 II. But will it last long? or is the bronze/ gold for efficiency ?

I just bought a 660XP2 Platinum to replace a 7 year old Corsair 750TX so yeah any Seasonic will be great.

The G series will be about the same price as the M12 II but it's a newer, more efficient design. And Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum are measures of efficiency not quality although the higher the efficiency the higher quality the manufacture, usually at least.

The G series 650w is $99 at newegg.

The M12 II 750w is $119.

Since you gain nothing from the extra 100 watts might as well get the cheaper, newer, more efficient unit.


Oh and unless there are 2 computer gurus with SR 71 as a screen name great post on slickdeals man. I missed your post by 2 days and paid $135 for my 660 Platinum though ;(
