  • Which psu to get?

    Basically have been looking around for a psu for my potential new pc build. I have found 3 possibles that might do the job, but the only thing that is stopping me from making a final decision on it is the single rail or mutli rail psu.

    The psu that I've selected are the 1000W Mushkin Joule 80PLUS Gold which has 6 12v rails at 19A, the 800W Corsair GS800 V2 80PLUS Bronze with a single rail at 66A or the Aerocool Strike-X 800W Modular 80+ Silver with a single rail at 65A

    That's what I'd want anyway.

        So it would be better having a single rail rather than multi?

          Correct, high rated single rail is good

              tbh dude i would pick from those last 2 psu based on colour theme for the rest of the build, red or blue.

                so what does that mean in layman's terms?

                  Hmm how does the GS800 fair against the TX750 for the same price? I've always held the TX range in very high regard

                    Single rail means all the power everywhere.

                    Multi rail means individual cables have individual limits.

                    With the multi rail ones you will likely have 4x 12v rails like so.

                    12v1 pcie 1
                    12v2 pcie 2
                    12v3 molex+sata
                    12v4 another of one of the above

                    It usually isn't hard to sort out rails but you tend to always loose out as the rails are just a bit more than you need on pcie but less than you need on molex or vice versa. Single rail they all take from the same place so no worries.

                      that's good as I'm hoping for this to power my new setup of a 6100fx clocked to at least 4.7, 2 asus 6850's at 1ghz in crossfire and a XSPC X2O 750 water cooling loop

                          so you reckon the corsair will power all that with room to spare?

                            A good 650 would handle 2 6850s so the corsair will be fine

                              in that case I'll probably get corsair. Seems like the best one to get
