So again, since you do not understand what the actual problem is, you have no business criticizing the PSU based on it.

Somtimes it is better to give options. And if no one answered the direct question, am I not included in that? Sorry Zero, sometimes your post then Retort gets confusing on how I should follow it.

I just merely hoped to give him better direction and confidence in the options out there.
Sometimes things are not just black and white.

not to hijack the thread, but what would you guys recommend

the Corsair Professional HX750W or Corsair Professional Series Gold AX750, there like a 20-30$ difference, is it worth it or an other 750W silver/gold under 160$ shipped, the XFX 850 BE is currently 145 at NCIX witch i currently own as well in my main system, just prefer the look of the corsair for my new build :)

i plan on getting a PSU this week-end for my new build, trying to keep it under 160$ shipped(for the HX) the Gold is around 27$ more, in the long run is it worth it for the gold?

Well, if you really want to go for the highest end for Efficency rating, then sure get the AX gold.
However the HX is a very good proven PSU and with solid Silver rating it is not far behind the AX.

IF you want to save some money on a Silver PSU, the SIlverstone Strider PLus shouldn't be overlooked.
Its very nice too.

Vote for AX750 - 100% modular, newer and very efficient design, 7(!!) year warranty

Honestly, I just spent several hours fighting to transplant one of my PCs into a Lanboy Air, I'm tired, and I'm not in the mood to go searching around for the forum thread somewhere else where the issue was discussed in more detail. Ask me tomorrow or the day after and I might have time to do that.

I have no idea what the hell you're talking about. I'm trying to understand what you said, but it reads like gibberish to me. I'm not even sure anything you said has a relationship to the actual discussion in this thread.

Like I said, there was nothing wrong with your recommendations or the fact that you gave them. The only thing I was pointing out was that nobody else had actually given the answer to the problem posed in the original post.

The AX750 is not worth the increase in price over the HX750, unless:
-You are a silence freak, since the AX750 uses a quieter fan and the fan does not even turn on until about 300W of load.
-You are crazy about efficiency, although the AX750 is only about 1-2% more efficient than the HX750 at any given load.
-You want the fully modular aspect of the AX750.

Unless one or more of those things is a deal breaker for you, get the HX750.
