Default Moduler 750W+ PSU Recomendations

I like the idea of a moduler PSU using only the cables you need to should leave some extra room for air flow. This being said only the CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX moduler PSU seems to get reviews that sound any good.

What other PSU's with at least 750W that is worth looking at the 1KW is just too much over kill for what i'm doing mostly lots of hard drives but only one video card.

Let me know

That being said, I'll just second SKY's motion instead of turning another PSU Suggestion thread into a small war.

The only thing I like better about the Silverstone unit vs. the Corsair is the 100% modular Interface.
But, that is preferance really.

I've used Neither, I have my own Choice for PSU's.
But both those units look good at least.

Best Regards,
ST

I'm sort of having this problem right now too; I have not been able to find a 750 area modular PSU; will check out the Silverstone suggested though.

HEhe, oh I was making fun and joking around when I said war lol

Corsair is solid and reliable, and from some extreme testing they can honestly handle more than they are rated for.

I have used One Corsair , a 400w and I was very happy with what it was capable of running.

Now the best way to round out our suggestions if we have an idea of what you are going to be running off of one of these power supplies.
I.E what are the Spec's of your system?

Welcome to the Forums,

My Antec TruePower Quattro 850W is decent.

No complaints really though at times it does seem to emit a high pitched frequency (which it's known for).

I got it for $130 quite a while ago, so it was an awesome deal, but they cost a fair amount more these days.

Ever since Ultra flexed their patent muscle with their modular interface filing, less and less companies are releasing modular products.

The Enermax Revolution85+ 850W is another option.

I third the recommendation on the DA850, I own one, and while its not currently in use(real use anyhow) it was one of the best PSU's that I've have ever used. It provides clean power, stable voltage, decent efficiency and best of all, its a single rail design! No worrying or having to plan out how your devices are connected to prevent overloading a rail.

It's an Impervo built unit, one of the best PSU OEMs out there.

If you rob a bank or something you have 3 top notch choices: Antec Signature, Seasonic M12D or Enermax Revolution 85+.
