More PSU's To advoid

But im not going to be shallow and just avoid them because of there last products blowing PC's in flames.

They might have changed something up, and there might be high quality models.

But probably to full extent i think not, and chieftec just got some random noisy lined low quality psu's that are finnaly modular!!!

with 14cm advertising as cheezy as it gets!

hahhaha :D

Well, that's mostly because it's actually true. Corsair PSU's are excellent products from lowest end CX400 up to highest end AX1200. They don't have any filler products just because they need to have entire range of products.

a corsair 520W had my intel system stable at 4.2GHz.

the same volts an on OCZ 700W, antec 550W and some random brand 650W i'd never heard of, were barely stable 100Mhz above stock, let alone the 1.1GHz the corsair let me get.


Just because a bicycle gets you to work every day, doesnt mean it can keep up with a ferrari... despite the fact they're both 'transport' and work on the same roads.

Theres no reason at all that ocz or antec couldnt run an i7 at 4.2ghz. I agree corsair make the best PSU's though thats not to say others dont make god ones either, I have had numerous makes of PSU including corsair and for the most part all of them have been ok, running systems from duals to quads, overclocked and with dual gpu's no glitches. Including a chieftec which ran my last i7 rig at 4ghz+

i never had an i7, or said that they couldnt do it. i stated that they needed higher voltage and more tweaking to do it, due to their less stable voltages.

I wish people would read a post in its entirety, before shouting fanboy

I never called anyone a fanboy, maybe you should also learn to read a post in its entirety. And I know you didnt mention i7, I chose an i7 as an example as they are among intels highest power chips.

Also you didnt state they needed more voltage you said they were barely stable 100mhz over stock. tbf I would expect that with the unbranded PSU but find it hard to believe that an ocz 700w and an antec 550w couldnt power a rig with a 100mhz oc without it being unstable.

no, but you're bashing corsair PSU's, and then you disputed my post without even reading all of it.

you still cant read, because i clearly do mention voltages.

You cant beleive it makes that much of a difference? well, it does. corsair let you get much more out of a systme with the same voltages, because those voltages don't fluctuate anywhere near as much.


(i put the *** things in cause i used a screnshot image, and you couldnt actually tell where the image was due to it being the same color)

Sorry but I have never bashed corsairs PSU's at all, infact I know they are among the best there is. I am saying there are other decent PSU's corsair is not the only option, people act like they are the be all and end all when infact other companies use the same OEMs and also produce just as high quality PSU's.

I am leaving now, one beca use I'm starving :laugh: and 2 cause my words are being misinterpreted :confused:

well, i'm half drunk atm. wasnt when i posted the first message.

yes, other companies with the same OEM as corsair are just as good... but corsair is available all over the world, and with better warranty. so we love them. lots.

I've owned a lot of Chieftech power supplies over the years, and only 2 have ever burst into flames or started burning in other ways. That's not that bad of a record. This is with being left on almost non-stop for years.

And yes, I still buy their products, just because the value can't be beat.

you're using an 850W PSU to run a PC that uses less than 300W of power. of course its alright.

Try running it above 600W and see what happens to it.

again, an under 300W PSU...

Can you imagine your PSU running my PC? it only draws 350W from the wall at load. 400W in peak synthetic testing.
