If it's really 750W for $45, it's not too terrible, but Capstone is still superior unit for not all that much more.

At 230V and with load heavily favoring 12V rail, that's pretty plausible.

It's not that great of a deal, but it's still fairly adequate for a low-end PSU like this.

If you decide to go for it, first visually inspect caps for bulging/leaks, replace any that show hints of...

Define "nice deal".

I'd like to note though that this CPU will severely bottleneck your 7870, regardless of OC.

Given that PCI-E 8-pin has the same amount of +12 V wires as PCI-E 6-pin, such adapters are safe, certainly more so than Molex > 8-pin.

So shipping damage I suppose?



My sample of Power Zone 650W had some strange metallic sound present at operation from the beginning. Shipping damage too?

How so? If anything, it looks like one of the very best around with ~500 rpm until 80% load, on a high quality FDB fan too.

Seasonic or Rosewill. EA-550 Platinum is actually pretty mediocre design and outside of efficiency doesn't have much going for it.

If you could get Antec EDGE, that would be a different story, as...

Not sure about primary, but secondary doesn't look indy regulated to me. That small coil in the middle looks more like it belongs to a pi filter.

That SF OTOH clearly has 3 output chokes.

Worse fan though...

It's not a clean sweep for extra $25.

Advantages of AXi, while do exist, are rather minor and probably not noticeable in real world operation.

I wouldn't pay up for AXi.

Even with WC level overclocks you'd have headroom on 850W with TWO GPUs. One would be more than fine with a 500W. You'll see anyway, if you go for "i" version.

860i has worse quality fan and may be audible, when it spins. I'd choose neither and go HXi instead.

Anyway 850W is for SLI with hellish overclock I presume?
