Definitely the Seasonic, the warranty aside, it is generally higher quality and the S12II is one of the products thats so good it almost cant get better.

Tagan is alright, but sometimes a hit or miss, best case is that it matches the Seasonic, but then it has a shorter warranty.

Seasonic: Here is a review of the 520W model @ JonnyGuru. Brothers under the skin with the Seasonic S12II 430W.

Could not find a similar good review of the Tagan Stone Rock.

Yes, besides the Seasonic has 2 rails of 17A while the Tagan has 2 rails of 18A, not a great difference considering ones rated 70W over the other (though the Seasonic do have a lower combined maximum, but unless you're powering crazy high-end stuff you wont need more power than that.).

is tagan even in business? their web site doesn't exist anymore when you go to the url or click through newegg's manufacturer's link.

*nevermind they switched it to http://www.tagan.com.tw/ from tagan.com

"(though the Seasonic do have a lower combined maximum, but unless you're powering crazy high-end stuff you wont need more power than that.)"


you mean to say that tagan has good and higher efficiency than seasonic then why should i choose seasonic when both r at same price.

Efficiency? Ive never said anything about that.

That just meant the Seasonic is rated to produce less power, perhaps to match the 430W rating. It has nothing to do with efficiency, more with Seasonic's marketing. Besides, this also means you having a overload zone just incase anything goes wrong. There is a high chance of the Tagan is overated anyways.

Trust me (and alot of other people on this forum), You wont go wrong with a seasonic.

Antec/Seasonic/Corsair/PC Power&Cooling/Enermax are brands that you cant go wrong with and to me they are mostly on par. Just pick one you like.
