    Default Antec EDGE 750 vs. Corsair RM750x?

    Hello folks,

    Just wanted to know from all you guys that which one of these 2 PSUs (Antec EDGE 750 or Corsair RM750x) should I choose for my new rig. The specs are below:

    i5 8600K + ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E
    GSkill TridentZ RGB 2x8GB @3200MHz
    Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
    Storage: 1TB Seagate Baracuda + a 500GB SSD (Samsung 850 Evo maybe)
    Chassis: Corsair Crystal Series 460X NON RGB (I am putting together my own fans in this, either 6 Deepcool RF120 RGB fans or 6 BeQuiet Pure Wings 2 120mm with Phanteks HALOS RGB Fan frames on all 6).

    Now I know you would think its maybe overkill for the GPU, but I still have made up my mind for not going with <750W. Will change the GPU later in 1-2 yrs maybe.

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: Also read some reviews for both of these on Newegg. Some very negative reviews for RM750x have me confused since its jonnyGuru recommended.

    RMx, no doubt.

    But you dont need that much power. RM550X is perfect for your system.

    This PC only takes around 225W under full load. Your current PC will even work perfect with a good 300W PSU with a PEG connector. You can power three GTX 1080 cards an a i7 8700K with a high quality 750W PSU.

    And remember that newer GPUs advance to BETTER power efficiency and therefore LOWER or at least same power consumption so 750W is still overkill for an upgrade.

    I agree 750w is like extreme overkill, 550 watts is more than enough for you.

    It is difficult cause i'm an Antec fan *guffaw*, but the Corair Rm550x is just an awesome PSU.

    Just a general tip. Reading reviews off web stores can often be misleading. Customers having defective items are more likely to write up a (negative) review than the ones that are not having trouble. It can often give a skewed perspective of a product.

    Thanks for your replies guys. It turns out that RM650x is just a Rs. 1000 cheaper (Approx 15.6 USD) than the 750x. It could be even more cheaper. Thats why I was thinking why not get the 750x only. IN CASE I do get it, will it be an issue? Like any power bill increase or performance decrease compared to the 650x?

    Perhaps it will be a little less efficient in idle (a couple of watt max), because the load is very low, other than that, PSU gives what PC requires, so there is no increase in power bill because of a higher wattage PSU. It only increases if you upgrade components that are powered by the psu for a more powerfull items (with increased power draw).

    Oversimplified argument. Even if efficiency increases, each new generation tends to be more powerful than last, which can result in increased power draw for significantly more power if manufacturer decides so, compared to more modest increase in power and same or lower power draw.
