Im looking to buy a new power supply at least 700w
which one should i go for cooler master silent pro or corsair hx?
Cooler master silent pro is about £40 cheaper than corsair hx 750w, is it worth that £40 extra for corsair? im currently using corsair vx550w which is very noise when its on full power, since hx is a higher quality model, and look decent to me. I'm looking to invest something quieter and more power becuase of recent upgrade on ati 5850

The Corsair HX 750 is definitely much better than the cooler master. Actually, the entire Corsair series is better than their cooler master counterparts.
The reason for the HX 750 to be expensive is that it is modular. You could get the similarly specced Corsair 750TX at the same price.
mine one is asus one, require one 6+2 pin and 6 - pin pci e power connectors, and apparently i need 600w power supply, the corsair 750w model seem quieter than the 650w model, my vx 550 noise is killing me
The Cooler Master silent pro M 700W is a very good PSU. Enhance Electronics has done a great job. It is great to see that CM is committed to quality in this "silent pro M" series.
Anyway, The Corsair HX750 is an amaizing PSU.
You can run two high-end graphic cards from the 4 modular PCI-E cables with one six/eight-pin connector on each one of them.
All capacitors used are Japanese. The efficenciency of this PSU is extremely high and the noise and ripple levels are very low.The voltage regulation is excellent . Moreover, It runs quiet.
You can even reach 900W at below 50ºC. Impressive...
I would go for it without any doubt. CWT has made an outstanding product.
