Power Supply?

okay so here are my choices

* 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply 30$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+5] 10$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU - PN: TRX-750M [-17] 30$ mail in rebate
I really really want the 30$ mail in rebate. This build will stay at a single card setup so im not worried about SLI or CRossfire. I was wondering should i get the corsair or coolermaster instead of the thremaltake. are thermeltakes good?

    i7 2600k WILL NEVER BE OVERCLOCKED
    gtx 560 ti
    8 gigs of ram
    liquid cooling
    1 HDD
    i already know that these powersupplys are more than enough.
  3. Why not just get a 2500K, save $100 and OC it 200mhz? That would be totally safe.
  4. and if you are sticking with a 2600 and not OCing then buy the 2600 not the 2600k
    since the only difference is that you can OC the k model

    None of your power supplies are appropriate .
    A good quality 500 watt unit will be fine , a 650 watt unit will give you plenty of head room even if you were to add a second graphics card
  5. In gaming, you'll never see an advantage with the 2600k

    Liquid cooling and no OC ? The SB processors can't even begin to strain the better air coolers, making liquid cooling a waste of time and effort.

    The PSU's all have enough wattage, they are just not ones I'd buy. The Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 gets a 9.5 jonnyguru performance rating but it costs $95 after MIR

    The XFX Core edition gets the same rating from jonnyguru bit is $10 cheaper for the 750 watter acfter $30 rebate

    and $5 cheaper for the 850 watter, making this the hands down choice ($30 rebate)

    PSU's run most efficient at 50% load meaning you'll pay less for electricity at the higher efficiency level.

    im getting a 700w. its not my system its my friends and he told me he wants alot of power incase he wants to add a second card one day. mi also sticking to 2600k because i wish to future proof the system and in the future applications are going to be more multi threaded correct? please just tell me which power suply out of the ones i mentioned above
  8. Yes, I'm a novice that's why my ID is tyro1. That aside, if it's not too late the 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply is your best bet, and you a $10 rebate.(it's a tier 2 psu)
    The Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU will at the least, burn up if you go with 2 vid cards, and at the worst, take out your mobo & possibly your 2 vid cards as well. Not a tough choice for a$30 rebate. (it's a tier 5 psu)
    The 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply w/$30 rebate is 2nd best choice.(it's a tier 3 psu)

    See http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx for power supply ratings, and check out what is said about tier 5 psu's.
    Also, see http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermaltake-TR2-RX-750-W-Power-Supply-Review/902/9 for a real eye opener.
  9. I am sorry, I should have said that the following is just my opinion, and nothing more than that.
