    Default Another build thread!

    Hello there,

    I have made another post last year for another build and people have been really helpful. Build worked well but someone moved in at work and I had to give it up. I am making a new build this time around, after fighting along with a potato of a pc, and would love some PSU recommendations from the more experienced people as some googling and review reading made my head spin.

    Build is: 7820x oc'd at 4.8ghz (silicon lottery, seems to be drawring around 230watts max at this oc from user reviews), 1080ti, 64gb ram and 3-4 hard drives, mix of sata and nvme. I know x299 requires a ridiculous amount of power but I was thinking that a 850w solution would be more than enough, even If I decide to step up to a 10/12 core next year. This is an active workstation for me and any passive tasks that would require multiple gpu's (ML tasks) would be offloaded to a different machine so I am not planning on going for more than 1 gpu in any case but I would like to leave some headroom if things change.

    The seasonic focus plus gold 850w seems decent but I am worried about the fan noise I read about in the review. Also not sure if gold or platinum would be a better choice like a seasonic prime platinum 850w/EVGA P2 850W or Corsair HX850. If power efficiency on the electrical bill is the only difference between those 2 I am not sure the extra cost is worth it, unless there are performance benefits (?).

    Thank you everyone, for your time reading this

    If the noise & efficiency are your primary concerns, then check Cybenetic's database -since it has measurements for both-, here:

    Aerocool Project 7 seems a good idea.

    I'm not sure about wattage, though, but you can clearly check that it's an efficient and dead silent PSU https://www.cybenetics.com/code/pdf.php?id=rNX...

    Another great option for even more silence and fan quality would be the Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11, but the 850W is damn expensive https://www.amazon.co.uk/BeQuiet-Dar.../dp/B00X7VF6DU the 750W not that much https://www.amazon.co.uk/quiet-BN252...dp/B014QT9J0M/

    I have to admit that all these years i've been neglecting BeQuiet for some reason (*perhaps i was under the impression that they only focus about low noise), but especially their Dark Power Pro11 line has great PSUs indeed .
    (If i was buying a PSU right now, that would probably be the BQ DarkPower Pro11 850)

    The bequiet one looks like a great recommendation, any idea how this measures up to the more "known" psu brands like seasonic and evga though? Price looks like the platinum ones of these companies too

    If you want to keep the cost at low levels, then the DarkPowerPro11 series aren't for you, since, generally speaking, they are more expensive than their counterparts. (*probably due to their "silent wings" fan but i can't say for sure).
    As for the comparison among the others PSUs, check the reviews about:
    BQ DarkPowerPro11 850: 1) http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=467
    2) https://www.hardocp.com/article/2017...supply_review/
    BQ DarkPowerPro11 1000: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...erPro11_1000W/

    P.S. If you feel they are expensive, then the Corsair RMx series is a great, and much cheaper alternative
