Which brand do I go with? Tags: Power Supplies Components Product Last response: October 27, 2011 11:03 PM in Components Share itzdanielp a b ) Power supply October 27, 2011 10:57:13 PM Hey guys. I am looking to get a new PSU pretty soon, but I don't really know which brand to go with. I am looking at the SeaSonic 1000W Platinum http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The Corsair AX1200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I also would entertain other brands (OCZ, Thermaltake, SilverStone, Antec...etc) But, what is generally the best brand? I really like the Corsair, but I have seen a lot of bad reviews on NewEgg (although a ton of great ones too) Also, should I go with a single, high amperage rail (seasonic) or multiple lower amperage rails (antec @8 rails) I figure you would get cleaner distribution across your components with a single rail, but how is that going to affect the longevity? Thanks guys. EDIT: Also, I am looking at Over 1000W, doesn't really matter as long as it is over that.

I would avoid reviews from newegg though, site like bit-tech, techpower, hardwaresecrets, kit-guru, jonnyguru are far more reliable. in fact that corsair got excellent reviews at JG http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=... multi vs single rail discussion http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3990 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
