    Smile Edge 550w vs XFX Xtr 550 vs Corsair rm550 vs SuperNOVA 750 G2

    Hi.. title says it all.. I read and I read..probably got asked a few times but I have an old Ultra modular here that got warranty replaced with a DOA.

    So Ultra's out. I'm running single card system:
    R9 270x

    Plan on going
    intel 5930x or 5770K when it gets here.

    2 hd

    calculators estimate 450w. I wasnt sure if that included the Efficiency error.

    but I dont need 650W Im told?

    Soooooo 4 models of 550w, opinions?

    Antec and XFX are pretty much the same PSU with minor differences (like the lack of semi-passive operation on Antec)
    Xeon X3440 @3,1GHz + GTX660 + 2x4GB @1650MHz CL9 + Corsair RM650

    Probably 220-250W DC, with no excessive OC:

    indeed.. so its not the W its the quality...

    haswell or broadwell cpus on my planning..

    but is there a good 450-550w with stable V and etc? Rosewill?

    since 250w is all I need, maybe 350...

    The super flower 650 aint available in the us, EVGA 650 is another version.

    So for super flower I go supernova 750w g2.. but if not,
    450-550W modular, not so bad warranty? one of my choices? better?

    Where do you plan on buying your parts from? For most people, the The Seasonic G-series or a derivative thereof (Antec Edge or Truepower Classic, XFX XTR, Fractal Edison) is an excellent option.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    That G2 is one of my absolute favourite options nowadays: clearly an overkill for your power requirements, but comparatively enough efficient at low loads (near to a Seasonic G 550), fanless at your expected load (but provide cooling inside the case, and mount it upside-down, either in bottom or top mounting location) and usually very well priced (the SF Platinum and Gold siblings are usually noticeably more expensive and with a less long warranty).

    Quality wise I don't think you can find anything clearly better: money wise, there are less expensive options of a satisfactorily quality, as for instance the Cooler Master V-SM, and on a lower grade and price the Cooler Master G450M but, as already said by hegge, alternative options are strongly location-dependant (you know, North America market is not equal to Europe's one, which is not comparable to asian or pacific offerings, which are not the same you'll find in South America, and so on).
    Best, Luca

    Thanks for the replies..
    Im in North America..
    Why I mentionned evga supernova g2 vs the super flower version.. the power is overkill but it was more about the ripples and overall quality of the product vs wattage. the g2 isnt available in 450 or 550w.

    I appreciate the cooler masters suggestions.

    Budgetwise I have around 125-150 us budget.

    Im still not sure what do to. the seasonic g versions Im told
    xfx xtr > Antec edge by a small margin.

    The fanless 520 is still bugging me for its fanless system and both offer a second card possibility.

    Its a bit like the new intel skylake coming out with possibility of ddr3 or ddr4 and the native new SATA vs other options.

    Theres too many options out there..
    Im turning ocd readin all about it for something that shouldnt change anything for me up to a point!

    In north america g2 750 vs xfx xtr vs Fanlress520
    I should start a poll.. next 24 hours Im taking votes :P
