    Question Thermaltake Smart 750m vs Corsair AX760(Mid-end vs High-end)

    Hi, I'm planning to buy a new PSU for my graphics Gtx 970 and thinkin in futureproof planning to add another Gtx 970 for SLI, one SSD and some basic overclocking(gpu & cpu).
    I saw a lot of reviews of the thermaltake smart series including of "Hardoc" and looks like a good product, passes the reviews, deliver the wattage it claims and survive the test to 100% load.
    My question is if i would get a real benefit(apart from energy saving) for get the Corsair AX760
    to sum up: why a High-End PSU is better than a Mainstream(mid-range) PSU?
    in addition the thermaltake is much cheaper and I can buy directly(the corsair have to wait 1 month)
    Thankz in advance for the help

    Wait a moment.
    There is no review at [H] about the Tt 750 watt model, but only for the 850.
    It is very likely that these 2 models to have differences, and even might have been built by different OEM as well !!
    Lot of companies in the past, including Tt, Corsair, etc, had used different OEMs to produce PSUs of the same line, so you have to be carefull !!
    So without a review for the 750 watt model specifically, i can't recommend it to you
    P.S. Tt's 850 watt model looks solid though

    No, it's not. AX760 is Seasonic made, SP750M is CWT.

    What do you get? Higher efficiency, lower noise, better build quality, longer warranty and some improvements in voltage regulation and ripple suppression (though I'm not completely sure, how they translate to components' longevity)

    I'm pretty sure that none77 meant that Smart 750M and 850M are from the same OEM. (and it's the same platform if I'm not mistaken)
    Xeon X3440 @3,1GHz + GTX660 + 2x4GB @1650MHz CL9 + Corsair RM650

    you right, I shoulded mention that i read the 850w version xD.
    But like none77 says it's the same OEM and both have a close price pool so i guess internally are very similars too.
    I guess i could ask for the 850w version to be sure

    Thats the part that losts me how to read "lower noise" "voltage regulation(taking in count that both handle 100% loads)".
    to explain it better for example in graphics cards you compare which get more fps, easy to see xD

    What do you mean?
    You have difficulties to compare the stats between the 2 PSUs?
    check the reviews:
    ( http://www.hardocp.com/article/2014/...1#.VTPL5pMghgw )
    ( http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Corsair/AX760/1.html )
    Voltage regulation 12V (average):
    Corsair AX760: 0,75%
    Tt SP-850M : 1,75%

    Ripple 12V (max):
    Corsair AX760:25.6 mV
    Tt SP-850M :40 mV
    CPU:Athlon 64 FX60 (2-cores) 2,6GHz

    I mean if it translates into longevity of the psu? or the components plugged to the psu?
    that ripple difference of 14.6 favor to corsair I know it makes it better PSU but why?
    I just cant translate the benefit for the extra 60$
