My System Specs

Default Would A Good 850watt powersupply be enough

You can look at my spec's ,but I have a i7-3820 @ 4.725gig on a AsRock X79 Exetreme-4,plus 4 x4gigs of G.sKill DDR1666 and two ASUS GTX-670 DirectCU II and one 256g SSD boot drive and 3-640gig western Digtal Black and two 1TB Samsung drives and a Corsair H-100 and 5 case fans,but they just draw .17amps each.Do you think a SilverStone Strider Gold 850watt modular

Or a Corsair HX850 Gold 850W and it is modular.

Does crosair make the OCZ power supplies or the other way around ,They sure are starting to look a like.

A quality 850W will do. And AFAIK the most on the Corsairs are re-branded Seasonics.
That SilverStone is solid, and about the Corsair it's the AX850 which is gold certified, the HX series are 80+ silver.

HX units are now Corsairs PUQ platform done by CWT not Seasonic, though CWT is very high quality and there units have been powering Corsairs HX lineup for a while.

The Silverstone is Enhance, and very good too, so if thats what you are using for your setup its perfectly fine.

Love my OCZ ZX 850, also used several XFX 850 core edition PSU's in gaming builds and they are super solid.

IMO quality 850 is fine. The fact your other psu blew makes me wonder if for some reason you system is sucking back more power than I would think though.

How is it sucking more power ,I have a AsRocK X79 Exetreme-4 ,4 x 4Gigs Of G.Skill 1666 ,I7-3820 and two ASUS GTX-670 DirectCU II ,H-100 CPU Water cooler,256g Cucial bootdrive and 3 westerndigtal 640g drives and two 1-TB drives and 5 case fans that just draw .17amp..I check a power caculater ,which I know dose'nt mean much,One told ne I needed a 950watt and the other said i needed a 771watt.This included my overclocks.I know there is always a bad one in the bunch ,no manner which powersupply i pick.The only other powersupply that went bad for me was a OCZ 700watt ,but there was no boom and no flash.I heard the PC Power & Cooling 950watt was made by OCZ.I have never had a SilvrtStone go bad and like I said the CookerMaster 1100 UCP ,which is over four years old and went though a house fire is still going fine.I just thought being in so much heat might have damaged it since it burnt my power cord off.

I always pick a psu that is overkill for my needs so that it will hopefully power all my future upgrades.

That's what I thought I did.But Q.C. was not good on this one,or it just one of those things that just happen.
