A good PSU for the money? Denmark

I am looking to build a rig, where 650-750w will be needed. Not sure on all the specs, but when upgraded, consumes about that.

It should be lower than 700dkk, (might raise it a little, and wait for a sale)

Websites -
Komplett.dk
Proshop.dk

either under "hardware" on komplett,
or "Sortiment" on proshop
psu = strømforsyninger

Here is a comparison between the RM750 and the CX750. The RM model is a better model, but slightly more expensive. To me, the extra money is worth it.

http://www.corsair.com/en-us/compare-results

The RM has a "Zero Fan RPM" feature (meaning it will be quieter)
The RM is fully modular vs. semi-modular on the CX
Longer warranty on the RM
The RM is Corsair Link compatible, the CX is not.
The RM has a 40C Continuous Output Rated Temperature vs. 30C for the CX model
The RM is 80 Plus Gold rated, the CX is 80 Plus Bronze

Even the most high end single GPU gaming setup, 450W is still fine as long as its a high quality one unless going to SLI or Crossfire. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajiN9aVOv4A

https://www.komplett.dk/xfx-proseries-xxx-edition-750w-... this one might be the better buy

Sounds too good to be true. Tier 1 psu's shouldnt have the weird bad power supply noises should they?
Will look a little closer on this psu. I actually do want to run crossfire/sli later on, when i need the performance.

I listed the big differences in my first post. I updated it. Those are the biggest points. To require more than 650 watts, you have to really be pushing your system. On 99% of computers, 650 watts is more than enough.

Narrowed it down to https://www.komplett.dk/xfx-proseries-xxx-edition-750w-... (650w at 625dkk at proshop.dk)
and https://www.komplett.dk/corsair-rm750-750w-psu/796967 (650w at 849 at proshop.dk)

The xfx is cheaper, and higher tier on eggxpert.com. (Is it haswell compatible?, nvm saw a review where he ran xfx 650w on i5 4670k, being very happy about the psu)
rm is 80+ gold, and should be better, though eggxpert shows the opposite. More expensive(Later on able to upgrade to red wires for a black and red build if i get the money for it)

note - i might go with 650w instead.

another thing - Corsair is almost never on sale in denmark sadly, so prices probably wont change.
Mostly coolermaster and other smaller psu brands going on sale.

Update - Looks like from other threads, that xfx are very good, and corsair had trouble with the rm series.
Should i go for the xfx? Should i try to find an xfx gold xxx model?

Another edit - The xfx gold models are crazy expensive. sticking to the bronze. Bronze still recommended?

I've never heard of a problem with the RM series, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. And as for bronze rated PSU's.....I don't think I would buy it. I know that it is only an efficiency rating, but it tells me about the quality of the products that it is built with. If you take notice, the warranties are almost always less than gold rating also.

I've had a tx 850m for almost 3 years now with no problem, so i highly recommend the tx series.

my friend has had a cx series psu for over a year now running a fairly powerful rig and also has no problems. It's more of a luck based thing than anything. if you arent stressing out your psu's. you don't need to have the best one on the market.

I've always consider any Corsair product to be a good product. They have a good reputation. Whenever I can, I go Corsair. ;)

People bash the cx series, but i'd really like to know how many are actual owners. You don't need an expensive power supply to run a good gaming system. you DO need a good power supply if you are continuously running near, at, or above the psu's rated power limit (a cx 500 watt psu will run a system that uses 450 watts at all times perfectly fine, but may not do so well if the system constantly ran at 480-520 watts, whereas say an AX500w psu would be able to run at 500-510 at all times a bit more comfortably (as well as has stronger 12v rails for gpu's, but again, only necessary if you are say going to sli, or have a very high current gpu (even the 780ti only uses on average, 32 amps, and never over 40amps unless you mod the bios)

The problem is - Money. If i had the money, i would probably go with AX series, getting many 4k displays and so on.
The problem is - I dont have enough for all that.
The xfx is cheaper, and some say better than rm
From numbers- Rm is better.
XFX is getting very good ratings though - barely noticeable fan at 100% load.
RM series problem? Some weird thing with Taicon and ltec capacitor or something like that.
Is it rly worth it to spend more on the rm instead of the cheaper xfx? - The money could be spent on other components like cooling or cpu or graphics card.

I look at my build like this......I AM going to have what I want. I'm not going to compromise on ANYTHING. My money situation is like yours. I don't have a lot. LOL So this means that I may have to wait a while to get what I want. But at the end of the day, I sit back, enjoy my computer, and have NO regrets. You won't hear me say, "Man, I wish I had saved a little longer and got what I really wanted." Nope.

Right now, i am actually leaning towards the xfx, because its cheaper and in general sounds better, even though in numbers, the rm is better.
I think i'll go for xfx. Thanks a lot for that last reply though. Meant a lot :)

No worries, m8. You get what YOU want. All that people here are to do is to give you facts, and SOMETIMES opinions. If you are happy with it, get it. It's YOU that is paying for it and YOU that will look at it every day and YOU that will use it! :D 

I might say......that is the American way! LMAO I don't know if Burger King is in Denmark, but their slogan is "Have it your way". LOL Fit's into the American ideal quite nicely. My problem is that I just don't have the money to "have it my way" ......not and have it NOW anyway! :D
