This is a work in progress & it will never be finished (10-25-04). ;)

Quote:

These quality brands are highly recommended,
however not every power supply they offer will meet your needs,
[b]be especially careful to make sure that the +12V rail(s) offer a
Minimum of +12V@26A for Single Video Card Systems & +12V@34A for Dual Video Card (SLI/Crossfire) Systems.

Class 1: These are the Best:

PC Power & Cooling (All Turbo Cool & ULTRA-QUIET SILENCER 610W & 750W),
Seasonic (S-12, S-12E+, M-12),
Silverstone (Zeus models ST56ZF, ST75ZF, and ST85ZF),
Etasis &
Zippy.

Class 2:

Antec,
Enermax,
Enhance,
Fortron,
I-Star,
OCZ Technology,
PC Power & Cooling,
Seasonic,
Silverstone,
Sparkle,
Tagan,
Vantec &
XCilo.

Class 3:

Hiper (Type R) &
Sunbeam.


Seasonic has announced the release of their new M12 series, these will be available up to 750W.

Links to all of these fine manufactures websites & reviews are provided at the end.


Please anyone who wants to help update these, please do so, it will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Dave ;)

Dave, My recommendations:

Modular psu guide: Ditch the Modstream and the Neo 480, and add in: NeoHE series, Silverstone Strider ST75

Bang-for-buck guide: I'd swap the Xclio for the Sytrin Masscool Nextherm 460. A bit more power, sleeved cables, and only a few bucks more. Not to mention seventeam :)

:) Just suggestions.

Yea, the modular PSU Guide has not been updated in over a year. :rolleyes:

Keep the XCilo GoodPower 500W as they are working fine.

Half of the new egg reviews report DOA on that Masscool, WTF? lol :crazy:

Thanks,
Dave

EDIT:

Feel free to copy/paste & then add/subtract,
it would be real nice if we had almost universal agreement on these guides! :wall: :wall: ;)

jonnyGURU 10-13-2006 06:38 AM

I may come up with my own list. Not sure, but I want it to be known that I don't agree 100% with Dave's list either.

So for now, let it be known that Dave's list is DAVE'S LIST.

Like Dave said, it would be nice if we could all agree on a "universal guide," and if we don't agree on something, we just leave it off.

dBTelos 10-13-2006 03:29 PM

I think we could come up with a universal guide also. Maybe something like rankings on how a PSU stacks up in quality, then sub organized by wattage (or rated wattage).

I'm starting to work on it up in the PSU forum.

Good start! :D

YOUR list has some misplaced units david.

There is nothing that special about OCZ units and the Antec Neo, TP & SP units are loaded with Fujyyu craps. Fully 80% of the power related problems posted over at Anand's are with these Antec models. *shakes head*

Agree 100%. Topower units should not be in anywhere in the top zone. Just to reinforce what you said Galvo, the guy I play International conflic (Joint Ops) with had his Antec blow up on him last week. I'm amazed Antec are still putting out such crap instead of stopping the product line.
