1000W PSU of Corsair/Silverstone/Seasonic

Hi I am very new to the psu and not sure what to look at or the reputations of these psu.

So I am mainly looking at these:

Corsair Professional Series HX+ 1050W '80Plus Gold

Seasonic X-Series 1050w '80 Plus Gold'

Silverstone Strider Gold 1000w '80 Plus Gold'

XFX 1050W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Gold'

I really don't know anything about the brand etc, but by the look of it, I kinda like the Seasonic X-Series 1050w.

and the XFX one is actually about $30 cheaper in my country.

So any comments or suggestion would be appreciated

and the following 3 is slightly more expensive and not sure if they are worth the extra money

XFX 1000W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Platinum'

BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P10 1000W '80 Plus Gold'

Seasonic 1000w '80 Plus Platinum'


My rig will be

CPU:3930k OC to 4.6ghz
Mobo: Asus rampage 4 extreme
GPU: 2 way CF Sapphire 7970 ghz
Ram:16g corsair vengeance
Cooler: H100
SSD: Samsung 830 256gb
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB

More about 1000w corsair silverstone seasonic
  1. Seasonic x is a top of the line psu. A good 850w psu would be enough for your rig. This is a great 850w psu so it will be more than enough seasonic x 850w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102
  2. there is a chance that i might run 3 way crossfire in the future, so i am not sure 850W would be enough, i like to leave some room too.

    I am now basically down to the choice between

    XFX 1050W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Gold'
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] xfx%201050

    Seasonic X-Series 1050w '80 Plus Gold'
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] nic%201050


    Seasonic 1000w '80 Plus Platinum'
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] ic%201000w

    is the platinum worth the extra money?
  3. Just get the seasonic x 1050w. Some would say the gold isn't worth the extra money so platinum is difinitely overkill.
  4. I think i will just grab a XFX 1050W gold, since they are cheaper and i like the look of it :)

    Thanks for your reply.
  5. Seasonic and Corsair are the best quality PSUs that you have listed. I wouldnt go for the XFX one myself.
  6. From what i have read, the xfx is made by seasonic, they are pretty much/mostly the same psu. But from where I live, the xfx is cheaper
