Phenom ii x4 965 @ 3.8ghz
8GB(4x2GB) DDR3 1333mhz
6/120mm and 2/230mm case fans.
I'm looking to get a new PSU to support a 6870 crossfire and I've narrowed it down to these 3.I was wondering which one would be the best.Personally I really like the XFX one because it has all the PCI-E cables needed and I really don't want to have to use molex adapters.My budget is less than $100.
The 6870 I have is a reference design and it's BIOS are locked so I cannot O.C. it.So I don't see the need to get a higher end 6870 like a Twin Frozr because I can't O.C. it anyway.I figure I'll just go with another XFX one just in case something goes wrong I still have the lifetime warranty with it.
Finally I would go fro the Cougar SX 700, HEC makes most of their PSUs as a small market segment products with no fantastic materials, but the efficiency is pretty good and nothing bad at all reviewed on this unit.
That's your opinion, not mine.
And i'm not speaking regarding how many wattage needed, the 620W version has 2 x 8 pins only and Purple doesn't want to use Molex. I'm speaking about Quality and Materials, Antec, Corsair, NZXT are more famous brand names than XFX when it comes to PSUs.
Jonnyguru & Hardwarecauncks didn't state seasonic part like they stated in OCZ and Antec PSUs. And who told you that they are tier 1 PSUs ? Tier 1 PSUs only get the full score 10, like the NZXT, Silverstone, Seasonic...
And any cheap unknown PSU could score 9/10 if it was efficient.
