Hello My brother is building a decent (mid-high) rig , and he pretty much knows everything else except the power supply, he was targeting for something enough , good , but not over 100Euros , well it's been quite a long ride to decide on something and we came down on these two PSUs(title) , I keep bugging him enermax is a way to go , but he insist on Corsair for some weird reasons (7yr warranty etc) He actually doesn't have experience a lot with corsair other than that I have corsairs memory and it's A LOT better than Mushkins. And I have Enermax PSU my self for my HIGH end rig (LibertyDXX 620W quite expensive one). This is when it gets interesting... Modu+ 525W and HX650 (both modular) , both cost 106 Euros on a web shop site, it's just that local shop that has this low prices. Enermax has 3year warranty , Corsair 7y (this is actually not a big issue for me , 3y is definitely a lot either) From my own experience and research ; I keep saying it's better to choose Enermax: - he will have less capable system than mine (and newer and more efficient hardware) , and even i use 400W max at max load (no overclock) so for him 525W would be definitely enough. -CrossfireX is something he's isn't planning on (money issue) -Enermax has reputation , plus it's a favored brand for high quality PSUs (no rebrand) -My PSU never went below +12Volt , while 3DGameman shows Corsair PSU as well performing ,in the actual test Corsair had 11.95V avg , my minimum in HWmonitor is 11.97 , but the current value nearly always shows 12.03 when i check. -I heard that Corsair PSUs are rebrands , just like sapphire's. It would be goot to know who is Corsair's OEM. -80plus bronze. (81-85%) Favoring to Corsair: -3DGameman actually put tons of hardware on the corsair PSU. -7yr warranty -Presumably has more modular cables (my bro said that) -A reputable brand -Computer enthusiasts marking it as well preforming. (I do not have many experience with these anyways) The value of both is not the same , HX costs somewhere else a full 15Euro more. Here's the site http://www.dinokomp.si/index.php/cPath/34_633 (non-english sorry) and this is a local shop, nothing big nor international. I just don't have idea what's the better option , maybe you guys can share something ... I just like the enermax styling and extra features , plus the quiet fan (that vent patent really works) However I just noticed Corsair HX620W for 109E , looks a lot more "genuine" and with a normal 2y warranty , makes me wonder if that HX 650W is just an old overpriced model with really weird 7y warranty stickers just to make people buy it. EDIT: the Corsairs warranties are really weird , sometimes it's a 7yr sticker , somewhere 5. it's just this BS ads that I don't like which confuse the advanced buyers.
