I know we're torturing you, but you simply aren't specific enough.
What Amazon (.com or .co.uk or maybe .de)?
Do you have any shop in Dubai that you can link?

To answer your initial question: the Seasonic Platinum is a great choice.

I'm asking you that because I need to see what's on offer and at what prices, otherwise there's little point in making recommendations if those particular units are not available or ridiculously priced.

Here you go, these seem to be the best deals on Amazon at the moment (on premium 850W units):
Kingzin LZP 850, NZXT Hale90 850 and the FSP Aurum Pro 850.

those seems best deals at amazon but are you sure about their quality, are these better than Corsair that died on me after 11 months or Seasonic ?
i'm not looking for good deals at this moment, as i said before high quality is what iam looking for

Without more information, one can't say why your PSU failed.
Consequently, it is impossible to say what might be "better".

All of the models discussed so far are high quality with 5-7 year warranty and very high efficiency. (important since you say you are running 24/7/365)

Can we say you won't have another failure with any model we suggest?

No, because we don't have any detail on why your first failed.

So you are left with a numbers game. Who makes PSU that have very low failures and high quality?

Seasonic, Flextronics, SuperFlower; all meet the requirement.

One absolutely head and shoulders above the rest? Not at the very high end that you are looking at.

Hence our recommendation to take your pick based on other factors.

1. price
2. availability

Personal preference.

I've had good luck with Super Flower...but not running 24/7 FOLDING any longer.

I would not fear stepping up to PLAT. Corsair...but I understand once burned twice shy.

Good luck.

PS.

individual experience is highly anecdotal

I don't own a Mercedes-Benz CL600...but based on past experience and engineering reputation...I would feel very comfortable in recommending it as reliable transportation.

basically.
I've personally used two x-series and One xp-series from seasonic and they are by all accounts great units.

If you dont care too much about the very best deal i'd personally recommend the Seasonic Unit. Performance, Quality, Efficiency, Fan, Semi-Passive....

I would go for a Seasonic P-660w. Most people end up not doing SLI/CF, and 850w for your current system is way overkill.

I own the Seasonic Platinum SS-860XP...I haven't loaded it up all the way, but I've run it for almost a year now and using my voltmeter to check under load while gaming, I can vouch for it's rock solid voltage regulation. And, it's quiet. I don't think I've ever heard the fan and I have Fan Control on "Normal". Can't go wrong with it, IMHO. I bought it for future expansion, but it's still way more than I need, or will probably need. Still, it's nice to know I have the extra juice and will likely not need to buy another PSU unless I just want too...or until Titanium efficiency is the norm. That said, the Corsair you had is a good unit and I really wouldn't hesitate to run one of those myself. The failure of it is suspect to me, but I'd probably get it fixed/replaced and keep it as a backup in case you find yourself in this situation again...
