Default Having trouble picking between 2 power supplies (listed)

PSU recommendation: I do not care about the difference in price I just want the better choice and I do need the high wattage for my build. They both have software for monitoring performance, they both offer single/multi 12v rails, etc. Once again I just care about getting the better psu and price is a non-factor, all opinions appreciated, thank you.

CORSAIR AX1200i 1200W

I'm just asking which power supply is better from the 2 listed, no matter the system.

If you're serious about the Evga unit,I would certainly wait until some reviews are up from reputable sites

I highly doubt there is anything out there that can topple Flextronics AX1200i for the forseeable future.

I'm only guessing because i'm not 100% but I think the EVGA will be a Delta again. And while good, its too gimmicky for me.

Go with the AX, 100%.

Unless you need those last 300 watts, go 1200i. They should have individually sleeved cables available shortly.

Judging from the modular interface the OEM can't be Delta, Seasonic, or Flextronics.

It's either Enhance or Etasis. I would go with the Flextronics AX1200i.

Just going on past history, hard to say as EVGA likes to customize everything. THe outer shell says Enermax to me of all things.
No way to know till you open one up. But upon further reasearch its an Modified ETASIS Design. Good call Ilya.
