My System Specs

Default Need advice on which PSU to get

So I've decided that with the upgrades I have planned that I don't plan to try and stress out my brand new TX750M.

So I'm looking for something a little bigger and this is sorta the short list.

Just looking for opinions.

Corsair AX1200I 1200W Digital ATX 12V 80 Plus Platinum Modular Power Supply 140mm Fan

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 1200W ATX Modular Power Supply 80PLUS Platinum 140mm Fan

Kinda leaning towards this EVGA one.
EVGA Supernova NEX1500 1500W SLI CF 80 Plus Gold Classfied Power Supply

Silverstone Evolution 1200W 80PLUS Gold 100% Modular Single +12V Rails 100A Silent 135mm Fan Filter

I personally have had good luck with Corsair and their customer service. I have had their 1200w psu (their first model released...not the same model you have) and it has been excellent for me.

Nope but would rather be over and have good quality then just on the line and I like the multi rail option on the EVGA

Overclocked Core i7 5ghz+
32gb Overclocked ram
Maximus VI Formula
dual overclock 7970
dual D5 Pumps
SSD
4 HDD
Soundcard
2 x 480mm rads P/P
1 x 240mm rad P/P

God knows what else in the next few years. with a 10 year warranty i'll hopefully have this for awhile and since its the max you can pull from a household outlet I can't see any reason to upgrade later.

If I remember correctly PC Power & Cooling is owned by OCZ now , so no, I like Corsair products myself they have nice stuff this one is made by Flextronics.
What about this one made by Seasonic
XFX 1250W PRO1250W Black Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 104A 24PIN ATX Full Modular 80PLUS Gold PSU

I didn't know that about PCP&C :( yea thats out for sure. Corsair is for sure still on the short list. The AX1200 seems to be a popular model and I've had no issues with my TX750M althrough I've only ahd it like a month. It'll go into the wifes rig to replace the OCZ ZX850 thats sitting there now.
