Which PSU should I get for two GTX 560 TI's in SLI?

Modular's probably not the best idea for me. It's an mATX case (supports ATX PSUs though) and with the extra size in plugs, my HDD's SATA cables were pushed upwards. Those huge Antecs are out of the question.

The OCZ I got last week was a bust. The fan sounded like a vacuum cleaner under load. I could hear it over the surround sound.

It needs to have a minimum of 750W, at least 4 6-pins, be some form of 80-plus, and less than $100 with rebates.

Cooler Master: (+1 for minimal cables) - [5.9" x 5.5" x 3.4"]

Corsair: (-1 b/c it's an octopus) - [5.9" x 3.4" x 6.3"]

Completely open to other suggestions if you find something better.


Here's my current XION [6" x 5.5" x 3.5"] seated in the case:

I'm using a Corsair HX620 that's a good five and a half to six years old.

How loud does it get under load? If it's okay in a 620 it should be okay in that one. 560's in SLI right?

The CPU and GPU's fans make more noise the the PSU fan does and yes it's SLi'd 900mhz GTX560Ti's.

I have been nothing but impressed with the quality of the HX620 PSU's, I have two of them and neither of them has missed a beat and both of them are well out of warranty now.

Where would you put PC Power and Cooling... on the Corsair/Antec or Diablotek/Raidmax level?

Because this is always an option too:

It's silver and has the word "silencer" in the title, which really moistens me up after dealing with that crappy OCZ helicopter.

holy crap this is awesome. what kind of OC are you looking at with that thing?

I did have it a 4.7ghz for a while but then decided to back it down to 4.3ghz as that can be done at stock voltage.

I can say with the TX 750, i have nothing but good luck with it. Check my rig in my Sig to see my set up.

With the TX 750 v2 you can probably run two way SLI 470's (Don't quote me on that cause i could be wrong) but this PSU comes with 4 6+2 pins. now a GTX 570 has two 6pin molex connectors. I have no idea what the power standards are for one, but is Mouse monkey can run SLI 560 ti's on a 5 year old Corsair power supply. that would give me more than enough confidence in my power supply to SLI what it says it can handle and more.

So in conclusion the TX 750 v2, is the clear winner in this "Price per performance" comparison, at Motherboards.org....lol i just had to throw in that little line haha

problem solved. went with the corsair. people seem to be more than happy with them. hopefully i'll find a way to hide most of those cables, but hey, even if i can't and i can get it to last 6 years, i'm cool with that.
