    I must admit, if Seasonic had actually made some higher powered units I'd have considered them.. Although having had so many Corsair units, I'm now steering away from them.. I think Superflower or even 8 Packs units might be my next port of call...

      They do an 850W platinum (I have a 750W platinum) what exactly are you running??!

      They aren't cheap, but they just ooze quality. Corsair used to be decent, when they mostly used Seasonic OEMs. A lot of brands do that, start out with seasonic or another strong OEM, build a good rep, then they decide that 'they know better' or just plain want to cheap out and increase the profit margin, change OEMs, and quality drops.

        I am still running an XFX 650w PSU that's 3 years old and it has never missed a beat in my PC.

          Well depending on the PC your wanting to know but the smallest one I have here is a E-350 that's in my daughters bedroom for her to watch some films on That has a 330w Enermax unit in it I think, either that or a 300w not sure of the name type thing, but it draws like 22w from the socket when watching a blu ray so, it's very much not a heavy power hungry PC
          I do have a socket A, 939 and two 775 setups with quad cores in and they have 350w unit for the socket A, a 520w BeQuiet PSU in the 939 and then I have two 860i's in each of the 775 units. I think they are fine, I have no worries of them whatsoever
          Then you've my two 920 D0 rigs, when testing their CPU's for stability with LinX, I have seen power draw of 530w+ just from the CPU overclock (although the GTX 580's that are in them where idle I don't think they use that much!!) but that said, that was pushing 4.5Ghz+ on the overclock for the CPUs... But then they have 1200w AXi units in them
          I used to run a 4960X @ 4.6Ghz with my two 7970's water cooled for gaming across a triple 1080P setup, again, that used a 1200w unit in it (another Corsair!! AXi, not a fan compared to the original 1200w units I have here.... but anyways, moving on...) that didn't do to badly even with the hex core overclocked rather high...
          The biggest PC I have is my SR2 which has two X5650's overclocked to 3.6Ghz each and the two 7970's in there as well. Again overclocking on the CPU and loading up the GPU's I'm able to pull nearly 900w if not more depending on what I'm doing It's a massive beast and I love it!! 24 threads, 48Gb of ram, I play games on it!! :LOL:

          I like to put PSU's in my PSU that won't struggle and with the SR2 its a good example as it's over the 50% power usage from the PSU, it's not as efficient, again not massively bothered by this but it's just something I normally keep an eye to..

          Here's the review that took my breath away when I was reading up about the original AX1200 unit.. http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/p...x_psu_review/5 Compared to the AXi1200 model, I'm not so impressed at all... http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory3&reid=300 (I sadly couldn't see another review at the same Overclock3d.net site for the AXi 1200w )

                  It's my dual Xeon X5650 setup with more ram than I can throw a stick at!! It was based on the 1366 socket, it was made by EVGA back a few years now Here's a review link for you to quickly laugh at

                      It's surprisingly very cool and quite quiet by my standards of noise Leccy bill not such a problem with only me being here I save money on the gas bill when the PCs are on as I warm up the room
