If not Corsair TX650 v2

Greetings,

I have a newly setup rig with the specs
Mobo: Asrock z77 Extreme 4
HDD: 1TB Hitachi Deskstart
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 2GB
RAM: F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
PSU: Corsair TX650 v2

Now I'm setting up a new rig for my cousin, the only difference is the RAM, he's getting F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL. The problem is the PSU, they don't have the Corsair TX650 v2 anymore. It would take 3 months before they would restock. They have the TX650, the v1.

Comparing the 2 versions v1 (http://www.corsair.com/tx650w.html/) and v2 (http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/tx-series-power-supply-units/enthusiast-series-tx650-v2-80-plus-bronze-certified-650-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html) in the tech specs, I don't see any difference except the Dimension?

Is it ok if I buy the v1, does it have the same quality of the v2... or basically what makes the v1 different from v2? Other shops in area has the ff:


  • Corsair GS700W 80+ 800W Tri-Color
  • NZXT Hale82 650 & 750w
  • Silverstone Strider Essential 500 & 600w
  • Thermaltake toughpower XT 575w
  • Silverstone Strider 80+ ST50F & ST60F
  • Silverstone Strider Plus 600W 80+ Modular
  • COOLERMASTER GAMER EXTREME 80+ GX550W & GX650W & GX750W





  • I don't want to buy online so I'm stuck with these options. He's planning to OC his rig to the full extent. I Really need your feedback.

    Thanks

    a 6570 in your 3570k is pretty messed. you need way more GPU power than that. like at least a 7870 to be paired up with a i5 3570k.

    give me a budget and ill rebuild a proper, balanced rig for you

    V2 is 80 PLUS Bronze Efficiency Certified while the V1 is only 80 PLUS Efficiency Certified.

    V2 has one more amp of capacity on the +12V rail than the V1.

    V1 and V2 are both made by Seasonic for Corsair.

    I already bought the items so I can't just have them "replace" with another item. Well, the 6570 actually "comes in a bundle", but I'm looking forward later on to replace our 6570. We're planning to have around $250 maximum budget for the GPU.

    Since z77 x4 of Asrock supports SLI/crossfire, we're still doing research about what's SLI all about and how it differs from crossfire. We're actually new in this Crossfire/sli thing, so we're still researching about it so we can fully utilize our board's feature. One of our confusions is that if it's possible to pair our current GPU and buy another GPU to put it on another PCIe slot. In this example our 6570 together with 7870. (well, that would be discussed on a different forum/thread) Until then, we're not yet gonna replace it. Nevertheless thanks for giving us a recommendation of what GPU we should get, it's highly appreciated. We're planning to buy it maybe within 3-6 months from now.

    So basically, I'm fine buying the v1 and I should look no further heed for the other PSU available in other shops?

    Yes, I know this.

    What we are trying to figure out if it's possible to "CrosSLI" (pair AMD GPU with a NVIDIA GPU). Or could we pair 6570 and 7970, such as those.

    However like i said this is not this thread all about. I'm trying to get recommendation for a PSU

    EDIT/UPDATE:

    I just got a call from a computer shop, they have new arrivals.

    Enermax NAXN 82+ 550W & 650W

    Enermax NAXN 82+ 750W & 850W Modular

    No, and no.

    Anyway, the TX650 will be sufficient as will the NZXT and silverstone.

    the xfx 550w is a better option. same psu, but cheaper. 650w is for something like a 7870 CF

    from what i know, only tigerdirect would give someone a i5 3570k and a very low end GPU together

    I agree, but the thing is, no shop has this on stock. Again I'm limited on the availability of the shop's stocks

    Like I mentioned on the OP "I don't want to buy online so I'm stuck with these options", moreover they don't ship in my country "Philippines", that's why.

    But thanks for all feedback everyone, after thinking it over, I'll buy NZXT Hale82 650w
