    So I've got a build planned for awhile, and while I know what PSU I'd want to get for the long run, it's nowhere to be found in my country at the moment as it's pretty new and also had some recall problems (EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2), I changed to a Kaveri build (the rest stays the same), and will be making a HTPC or smaller form factor build (than a Full ATX that I'm currently after now) in the future, and keeping the case and other stuff for a Socket 2011-3 build in early 2015.

    I need help in finding a (very) suitable PSU for FM2+ build with a SSHD, 16GB of RAM, a ton of fans, a H100i and maybe a dedicated GPU (within the range of HD 7750 and R9 290, so a big range LOL).

    Either way, a 500W+ PSU, very good efficiency, silent, modular or semi and good at low loads/idle.

    Any suggestions? Not sure what brands to blacklist on the grounds of "can't be found here", but for the time being, any suggestions are welcome.


    Thanks in advance.

    Seasonic X series are fantastic power supplies. Now not knowing what country your in, I am just shooting a link to an example at NewEgg's site:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151087

    The X series go up to about 1200 watt range. The fan only comes on when the need arises. I personally have that X-750 in my main system running dual Vraptor 10,000 rpm drives, several 120mm fans, one 250mm fan, and a custom water cooling loop. The power supply doesn't even break a sweat! Half the time the fan doesn't even come on. Very very silent power supply. Heck, my water cooling pump makes more noise than the power supply.

    Another very good choice is the Corsair AX series.

    Got Seasonic over here, they're not the cheapest of the lot, but might be worth it tho. Not sure about Enermax. I'll look up some smaller Seasonics when I get the time.

    Thanks.
