    Red face Need help selecting the Highest Quality PSU

    I am in need of some TRUE help.


    I have been researching PSU's on your website... and the rest of the
    infinite web space!!! ..and have found it quite hard to find any direct link to
    the best PSU out there!!

    What I thought was going to be the best PSU for my build was the EVGA
    1500W Supernova.. after reading this site, I lost a lot of faith in
    EVGA. I just realized that they used some high quality parts and some not so high quality parts...


    So if you can please point me to the best manufacturing company out
    there that does not skimp on quality parts and really does stand by the
    greatest PSU ever made, I would greatly appreciate it. THANK YOU SO
    MUCH!!!!


    .... and if you would like to take a look at my build from Digital
    Storm also, just to see if there is anything else that jumps out at you as
    being foolish, please by all means let me know.

    Again...


    THANK YOU!!!!!

    May I ask why the heck would you need a 1500W PSU for a single GTX770 card? Am I missing something?
    Just get yourself a CoolerMaster V700 (which is an excellent PSU with great value) and you're all set. Or, if the PSU has to be available on this site - Corsair AX760. Both of these have far more power than necessary.
    Xeon X3440 @3,1GHz + GTX660 + 2x4GB @1650MHz CL9 + Corsair RM650

    If you want truly uncompromising quality, with no regard to output power, your actual power needs (based on your PC) or any sense of economy, then you should take a look at Antec HCP Platinum series. Those things are so idiotically overbuilt and underrated (specification-wise) it's not even funny. Seasonic's SS-1000XP is also a fantastic choice. If you're patient, you could wait for the SS-1200XP³, which should be sheer tech porn, and I expect it to become widely available in about two to three months time.

    And the funny thing is, even EVGA is not to be dismissed so easily, their SuperNOVA 1000 P2 is pretty uncompromising, seeing how it's done away with CapXons on the modular board, using NCCs instead*, and SuperFlower's fantastic Leadex Platinum platform.




    * = but maybe that's only for review samples, I cannot guarantee they did it across the board.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    The reason being that I went with the 1500 W PSU is because later on down the road I will be of course adding MORE video cards.

    Because of this, I am not going to waste any money on buying a smaller PSU now and then have to upgrade later.

    How many exactly?

    750W will handle 2-way SLI easily and anything beyond suffers from scaling issues.

    Selected PSU is also very loud if that's important.

    Possibly 3 or 4!!!

    All I want to know is what company either received a perfect score from Johnny Guru or just that the company uses the utmost highest quality parts, specifically the caps, and that they also have a superior build quality.

    Thank you!!

    Like already mentioned by McSteele, the HCP Platinum has arguably the best build quality of any consumer grade psu...

    Yup. You can't beat a Delta (in fact, all of my PCs have Delta made PSUs).
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Main PC: Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz, Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600, 240GB Intel 335 Series SSD, 750GB WD HDD, Sony Optiarc DVD RW, Palit nVidia GTX660 Ti, CoolerMaster N200 Case, Delta DPS-600MB 600W PSU, Hauppauge TV Tuner, Windows 7 Home Premium.
