    Default Corsair HX750 vs Cooler master silent pro M2

    Hi, i'm going to change my current power supply; currently I have an Antec 550w and I feel that i'm pushing it's limits.

    My current setup is:

    Asus p8B WS
    intel i7 2600k
    16GB DDR3
    9x 500GB WD RAID Edition
    1x DVD-ROM
    Nvidia GTX460
    Highpoint RocketRaid 2340 (RAID adapter)
    3x Nexus 120mm fan

    Now I'm between Corsair HX750 (122 euros) vs Cooler master silent pro M2 720 (104 euros).
    I need a silent and stable psu.

    Thanks for your time.

    Your current PSU is not even close to having its limits pushed. That's a 150-160w card and a 95 CPU. Add in 10w per HDD and you're still under 400w.

    The question of which Antec PSU does come up, if it's a junk-cap special than replacing it isn't a bad idea.
    Between those two PSUs, I'd take the HX750. Given wider options I'd likely pick something else though.

    Thanks for your help bobnova; i'm open to new recommendations.

    The key for the change is that I'm experiencing some very random BSOD during render stages; and to isolate the problem I'm thinking on change the PSU.

    It's an Antec Neo HE550. I don't know the year.

    OK in that case you may think about a new PSU. But not because your actual PSU is not sufficient but rather pretty old...

    But if you buy a new PSU, stick with a 550W, that's more than enough for a single GPU and single GPU system. It's a waste of money to buy a 750W in this case...
