650-750W modular PSU w/5 yr warrenty?

So like the title says, I'm looking for a reliable power supply that will provide between 650W and 750W that is modular and hopefully cost less than $130. I'm not sure exactly what brands are reliable, but it would be nice to get a 5 year warranty.
It has to fit in an antec p182 case, so it can't be too large. No LEDs is a bonus.
Any ideas?

  1. Corsair 620W-HX comes close... Bit short on the wattage for what you want but its a high quality psu, and a bit more on the wallet no including the rebate on the egg

    Seasonic M series
    possibly Silverstone Strider dont know who the oem is though
  2. thanks. Quick question about "Compatible with Core i7": Most other similar power supplies that don't say i7 compatible are still compatible, right?
  3. RIGHT ;)
  4. Thanks, any other suggestions (hopefully slightly more power and cheaper).

  9. Here's my video card:
    EVGA 01G-P3-1280-AR GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit GDDR3
    I might upgrade later and add another card, as well as upgrade to something bigger than a 24" monitor.

    The silverstone looks nice, but I'd like to get a 5 year warranty.

    Is this a good one:

    WOW if I new they had that modular one I would have gotten it. Life time coverage!
  12. So they're a pretty reliable company? And lifetime limited?
  13. The Xigma...its meh....
    Not something "amazing", wont blow up on u...but its not like other high end psus. Its a CWT built oem with some corner cuts on the components. Hard OCP claimed it as a failure because at high crossload it didnt do well i believe

    The Quality of the Corsair and PC are better imo
  14. If you're willing to forgo the modular requirement, you can get much more for your dollar. I just snagged the 850 watt Corsair TX850 for $92 after 20% code (techbargains.com or bensbargains.net) and $20 rebate. I was looking for modular as well, but just couldn't beat that price.

    I almost picked up the Corsair HX1000 for $162, but Newegg raised the price $40 before I could get to it. Oh well.
  15. Here is what I have coming tomorrow with rest of my Ci7 build. Only drawback is its cost. But I feel Seasonic makes about the best out there (they make some of the PCP&C, Corsair and Antec models besides thier own).
  16. Ok thanks; that Seasonic is nice but too expensive, but the 700W one is 160$, which I'd be willing to shell out for, but first what do you all think of OZC and this unit:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018
    It looks great except that I can't find any warranty information on that page; they must have at least a 3 year warranty...right?

    I fixed your link, you had it backwards.


    schwab,

    Modular cabling is overrated in my opinion. Get the PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W. It's only $79.99 after rebate and AFAIK it's the same as the black one only its red, it's a steal. You can hide the unused cables in the back behind the drives and mobo tray.

    The ATX 12V is a little short so you will need an extender or just plug it in without routing it behind the mobo tray. Additionally the 182 has limited room for the longer PSUs that you will find at higher capacities, so get a 120mm fan grill to protect against the wires hitting the center fan.
  18. That PCP&C unit was what I had originally picked for my build, but then I read that the unit is quite large and people had to completely remove the bottom fan in their p182 cases (A fan grill would be nice if I could fit it at all). I thought it might be a good idea to find something else, and that's when a friend recommended getting a modular unit. All the reviews make it sound like a great feature.
  19. I was going to say that you had to remove the fan to install the PSU, because I saw the bytching on Newegg, but I though it wasn't necessary to mention it. Yeah, it's the end of the world, you have to take 2 minutes and remove the fan to install it, but it does go back in. There are too many noobs on Newegg, don't listen to 90% of them.

    I built two 182's with the PC P&C 610, which is the same size. Just get a fan grill. Technically, the PSU doesn't even need a fan in front of it.

    It is tight, but it fits.
  20. I'm pretty much a noob, so I'm just trying to make this as easy as possible for myself. Thanks for all the advice. I just might take it but I'm still keeping an eye out for a good modular supply...like the OCZ I mentioned above, even if it means spending a little extra. Anyone have any experience with their PSUs?
  21. It's really not a big deal, but whatever makes you happy. ;)
  22. OCZ is pew pew
    Straight and forward.
    Its a crappy Sirtec build compared to these others
  23. BFG ES800 is a very good PSU with a lifetime warranty. Not modular though.
  24. I found one more that is almost exactly what I'm looking for:

    I'm guessing thermaltake is a respected PSU brand?

    Why would you not go with this one?
    Is has more power and it's modular.

    I bought a modular PSU - ($139.99) PSU SILVERSTONE|ST75F 750W RT - Retail

  26. thanks, but only three years on that silverstone.
    OK thanks everyone. I'm getting the thermaltake unless someone can tell why I shouldn't or can point me to something better.
  27. The Antec Signature 650W is $159 now. From reviews I've read, it is the best PSU made now. It is partially modular (some commonly used connectors are hard-wired).
