    Right now it's "600W" but I'll be replacing it soon as I have 2 unused fans, i.e. just adding even one of them cannot be handled by the PSU lol.

    And honestly my current PSU sucks. :laugh:

    Hence the list in my sig (which would most probably be bought next week).

    So yeah, no vote yet.

    Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W is what I am currently running. I have a nice old Seasonic M12 600W I had been running but chickened out when I started OC'ing

    HX1000W, soon to be replaced by AX1200W; September most. In Israel Corsair is definition of kosher PSU, lol. Jokes aside, simply great PSU (& other PC components) developing company, mostly PSUs cause that's the only thing that my current & future setups will have.

    Then who is the Pred? :laugh: jk :toast:

    I have an old Enermax NoiseTaker 600w in my main rig.
    Still runs well after all these years.

    I was gonna say OVER 9000!!!

    But I fear being banned....

    So....

    Corsair HX1050w Pro

    but i probably would have been alright with a 920w or 950w but Corsair dont do units around the 920-950w+ mark. If they do, i couldnt find any when it came to looking. Found a load of Antec High Current Gamer PSUs but nothing from Corsair.

    So for a lack of a better option. Better to over do it then under do it and risk crippling my rig

    Ultra LSP 450w. was a budget psu but is actually pretty nice. the cables came sleeved which absolutely shocked me considering I only paid $35 for it. It has a good bit of weight to it... probably 2/3 the weight of my pc. and its a single rail design, 24A 12v, its enough to power the rig in my specs just fine.

    The AX1200 is really the only option for a high end supply right now. The OCZ ZX 1250, Silverstone ST1200, and AX1200 are pretty much it for top supplies. Everything else isn't fully modular and or splits the rails up. Both are things I couldn't go without if I were buying a new psu. The ZX though has some reliability complaints, and for who knows what asinine reason Silverstone ruined the ST by not including an on off switch. Why go 99 steps towards perfection and stop short? Idiocy. So the AX1200 is pretty much the only option for a perfectionist. Though I don't like that horrid shade of gold they used for the lettering. Hopefully the platinum variant will look better.
