    Which PSU is the best one...CoolerMaster Extreme Power Plus 600 Watts or Corsair Gaming Series GS600 600 Watts Modular PSU.

    I am indeed a hardcore Gamer.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    My pc spec:

    Intel 2nd Generation Core i7 2600 Processor @3.4 GHz
    Intel DH67BL Motherboard
    1x 4GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM
    Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5
    Seagate 500 GB 7200rpm Harddisk
    Logitech Gamepad

    Corsair gets my vote every time. Love my modular 750w pro series PSU.

    I say Corsair too. They have a superb reputation and my HX850 has worked flawlessly for almost three years and is still going strong.

    However, it's always best to look at reviews, so google those models and also look for PSU "roundup" reviews. Search for something like "GS600 review" and it will find it.

    You can then always come back to us with questions about those reviews if you like. btw, fill out your system specs - it's cool to share. :cool: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/profile.php?do=specs

    Finally, welcome to TPU! :toast:

    I would recommend the Corsair as well, hoping my AX1200 serves me well for years to come :)

    The Corsair unit. Cooler Master makes decent stuff but it just isn't quite on pair with Corsair.

    Cooler Master does a great job in case designs, where as Corsair is great in Power Supplies.

    Coolermaster: 36A on the 12v rails
    Corsair: 48A on the 12v rails

    The decision is obvious! Corsair.

    Go for the Corsair, and PLEASE get either a matching stick of RAM OR a Dual Channel 1600MHz DDR3 kit because you are killing your CPU/memory performance with just one stick of RAM.

    Brand-wise I would choose the Corsair. But if you want a really really reliable psu brand go for Seasonic:respect:. They cost a bit more but you get a quality product. I have 2 of them, never a failure. The one in my PC is working 4 years now 24/7! no probs. The one in my previous rig (that I have now given to my mother) is working 7-8 years without probs (3 years 24/7).
    Also I think that you should go for something bigger than 600W...at least a 750W (in case you want to upgrade in the future):toast:
