    Default Need replacement for AX1200 - Best PSU?

    Hi gang!!! I've been a lurker for years and last year purchased a Corsair AX1200 based off your recommendations. My gaming rig is pretty intense: Rampage IV Extreme, 3930k, SLI GTX-580s, 2 x Corsair Force GT 120s, 7 fans, etc.

    I'm looking for the best PSU, money being no object. I was looking at this Thermaltake 1475 unit:

    But it didn't sound like you guys were too enthusiastic about it's build quality in another thread. Is this PSU as good as it gets? Would this be a good replacement for my AX1200?

    THANKS and Merry Christmas!!

    same question here.
    Did the AX1200 fail?

    Also, have you tried a Kill-0-watt meter to see what you are drawing?
    More than a 1000 watts now? Or are you thinking of adding a third card?

    Last question: Market area?

    Antec HCP1200 is more preferable among high wattage units.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    Even AX850 would be fine for that setup. :3
