Which PSU? Tags: Power Supplies Components Product Last response: June 11, 2012 6:04 PM in Components Share squiz June 11, 2012 5:09:42 PM hello, i'm seeking advice on which psu to purchase for my build. i've narrowed my search down to these four: Silverstone Strider Plus 600W Seasonic M12II 520W Corsair TX550M Antec High Current Gamer 520W they are all about the same price, so i'm just wondering which would be the best choice? More about : psu o1die a b ) Power supply June 11, 2012 5:21:11 PM I would go for the model with the highest 12v rail rating in amps or the longest warranty. All are pretty good. m 0 l ct1615 a c 164 ) Power supply June 11, 2012 5:33:14 PM all will do the job just fine so you won't be making a wrong decision silverstone comes with 4 PCI-E power cables. nice if you need them, more cables to hide if you don't the antec uses the same platform as the seasonic although the antec fan is larger and seasonic uses different japanese caps if i recall. basically the same PSU the corsair is modular if that is important to you and comes with the largest fan of the four. m 0 l Related resources Which PSU for R9 280X TOXIC? - Forum Two PSU's; One of which is a 'newer' version.

I have the Seasonic M12II-520 and love it; 5yr warranty, quiet, rock solid rails, great voltage regulation, and low ripple. The Antec HCG is made by Seasonic and is based on the M12II-520 design; 3 year warranty. The 550TXM is made by CWT and has the beefiest 12V rails at 45A; it's one of the PSUs that put Corsair on the PSU map as a quality PSU seller. It has a 5yr warranty. The Strider 60)W has 42A on the 12V rail and is made by Enhance Electronics; 3yr warranty. Based on the above, I would go for either the Tx550M or the M12II-520. The TX550M is the most powerful and if it is the same price as the M12Ii, then that is the route that I would go. m 0 l squiz June 11, 2012 6:02:41 PM Rugger said:Based on the above, I would go for either the Tx550M or the M12II-520.
