    I finally got the other pieces of hardware I needed to put my hands dirty (litterally, of the black dust that gathers here), and installed this PSU.

    Sorry I forgot to mention the topic of fan speed/noise that is very benign under 50-60% of load, that also accounts for the huge overhead I want.

    True enough, but people often forget that the platform of 650W units is not on the same level than 750W. And between 750 and 850W the price difference is tiny (10-20 euros). Everything considered,...

    I'm looking for comparable data about low load efficiency. About noise and quality is more than OK :)
    Edit: From your review it's 87% @75W and 90,7% @150W
    230V efficiency is always higher and the...

    The AX860 gets very close there @80W and 100W, though (from the same site) which should be my idle power draw:
    Cooler Master V550S: 92%-92,3%
    Corsair AX860: 89%-90%

    With 550W I would be forced...

    850-860W of peace

    I don't change PSU often, indeed I have stuck with an old "server" Seasonic unit (650W) for too long and it's time for a replacement.

    -850W min as I like to have a good overhead

    Please dont.
    Rather a pci-e 6 pin to 8pin would be ok, provided that the rail has enough amperage or the PSU is single rail.

    In 20 days the 880/980 should be announced ;) but I'm also skipping that generation and sticking with my 770. They need one pcie 8pin + 6pin or two 8 pins (most overclocked models).

    *sigh*



    Theoretically after release nobody should put prices higher than the MSRP. 200€ is about the max i'm willing to spend for the 860W.

    Waiting for a test of the 860W. If it improves on low power efficiency and keeps the same regulation and ripple, it'll be worth the wait. If not, i'll get the 1000w.
