    Default XFX Pro850W XXX Edition vs XFX 850W Black edition

    I tried looking online but didn't see a review for the XFX pro850 XXX edition psu's. I see that they are 80 plus Silver like the Black Editions. I was wondering if anyone here knows if there is a difference between the two in terms of Efficiency, Regulation, Build Quality etc etc.

    Nope, that unit is The former Black Edition but relabeled, they scraped the Black Edition name to use it with the new Platinum line

    Yeah, it's just the same M12D platform, but slightly less gaudy.

    .... and the Seasonic M12D platform is nothing to scoff at. In it's heyday, it was always in the top tier, and can still hold its own with many similarly priced units today (IMO )

    It's still Top Tier in everything but efficiency. Though, 80+ Silver is nothing to scoff at.

    I'd take an M12D over an X-Series in the 700-900w range.

    I'm still using my M12D 850W in my main PC. But once I go SLI I will have to get something bigger. But yeah I'm building another system and was wondering if the new XXX pro series from XXF use the same platform as the M12D.

    GTX 570 SLi w/ a 920 D0 @ 4.4Ghz would be fine on a 750w S12D/M12D unit.

    But yes, XFX only changed the name so that all of their current units would be in the Core Series and modular ones would be called XXX to denote that; with Black Edition units getting changed up to the new X-Series Platinum platform.

    I forgot to mention that my GTX 570 is also overclocked (OC+voltage) as well, which will add to my wattage. So getting two in Sli plus overclocking with voltage will put it up there.

    Oh really? I have been waiting awhile now for Seasonic's Platinum 1000W unit to come out. But if XFX rebrands that unit, I may get that instead (pending how well reviews go). I kind of like the look of the XFX units over Seasonics.

    That case sits on a flat surface with no feet.

    More so, if you want to be insulting or condicending try to at least understand what you're talking about.

    Whether the fan is facing up or down does not denote the "correct" positioning of the fan of the PSU itself. The unit is rated at 40*C continuous operation and was sitting in a machine that barely used 200w of power on a 750w unit, so it was barely put to use.

    More so, the fan is sitting next to an open vent on the side panel of the case, so it is drawing in fresh air from that location as well.

    You're obviously not educated in these matters, and I would advise you from making such brash comments in the future.
