    Post Enermax Maxrevo 1500W or Silverstone ST1500 1500W

    Welcome JonnyGuru community

    This is my first post in this forum.
    It was recommended to consider power supply reviews in here, so here i am.

    So my previous power supply was the EVGA SuperNova NEX1500 died for some unknown reason. (It is possible that it might have been caused by overvoltage)

    I live in Egypt.
    Electrical information


    I am thinking of buying a new one 1500w as well.
    I also considering to buy a voltage stabilizer.

    After searching in the reviews i found


    As i still do not fully understand the reviews but i know that a power supply with lower ripple and good build quality is a better choice.

    A very good quality is a very important issue because if the power supply fails there is no replacement and even if i would replace it, that might cost me a lot of shipping money plus some other costs plus the time and pain of the process.
    I also will probably overclock, So low ripple is also important.

    Which of the two do you recommend?
    Are there better ones out there that i do not know about?
    If yes, please link a good review for it.



    Thanks in advance

    By 12V capacity, they aren't even comparable. Even MaxRevo 1350W has slightly higher 12V capacity than ST1500.

    But what's the powered setup?

    You have to know that i do not want to upgrade the power supply when upgrading the the system, and i might as well add watercooling components later.

    Maxrevo.

    There are not many options at ~1500w. The ones worth recommendation, like Maxrevo, Platimax and Lepa G, are basically the same thing.

    Why do you want a 1500W for that?!

    A decent 1000W should be enough...

    I am thinking of overclocking and adding watercooling components later.
    And when i do so i do not want to upgrade the power supply.

    1KW would still be plenty. Unless you plan to OC your CPU a lot, add a 3rd GPU, and OC all of the GPUs, you won't need 1.5KW.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    3 7970 GHz Edition just do ~750W. Only a Titan is able to come close to 1000W.
    So with the I7-3770K @ 4.8GHz System HardOCP uses, you still have about 250W left on the 1000W PSU...
    With the 1500W, you have 750W to spare. Why do you want that?

    He already has 3 Graphics cards
    But still: 1000W is enough. Even with OC. With 'Hard OC' you may want to think about 1200W. But 1500W is useless unless you want a foruth GPU...

    But: With more GPUs, you'll have a higher latency! So you probably don't want that...

    Ah, yes. I looked at his build before, but missed the 3rd GPU line. I see it there. My opinion remains, though. 1KW is easily enough.
