    Any reason I should choose the previously mentioned Corsair units over the Seasonics?

    Also, I updated my OP with a few more details about my build
    Jon didn't review them, Oklahoma Wolf did.

    Unfortunately we didn't know at the time what we know now, and that's the the Focus units have issues with high transient loads which can cause them to shut down under normal load. So I would avoid them.

    Thank you! I'll stick to the Corsairs.

    Outervisions calculator states that with my overclock on cpu and gpu I should get a 850w PSU.

    Those numbers are just absurd, you could run that system on 500w easily, OuterVision is horribly inaccurate...

    Outervision's "calculator" is a random number generator.

    Haha that is great to know. There is a $20 rebate on the hx750 right now, making it tempting over an rm650x or rm650i. Anything I should know about the hx750?

    Without the OC the calculator suggests PSU with 450W.

    Real Life Consumption is more in the 300-350W range, maybe even a bit lower than that, without OC...
