THey shouldn't be too bad though that recent one I am not sure who its OEM is. (Google search failed me).

You could take a shot with it, or try something from ANTEC , Corsair... etc etc.

I'd stick with a trusted manufacturer like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic... etc... Peace of mind is worth the extra cash you'll pay IMO.

What is your current one?


Otherwise yes I would go with one of those or an AX850 if you can afford it.

Go for the cheaper of the two, Chieftec's latest lineup uses the same DSG platform from CWT as Corsair used for the original TX series. (which has performance on par with the V2 series that uses a Seasonic platform)
