  1. I have updated my original post, and have had what I think is a pretty good deal on a Corsair HX1200i, what do you think? Again, availability currently is a problem in France.
  2. Hey guys, I had no idea there was so much more to PSUs than their electrical performance… So, I've read a lot about multi-rail and OCP and ended up comparing every model listed in the S and A+ tiers, and their current availability in France. It appears to me the best model from every standpoint is the AX1600i, but 550€ is more than I'm ready to spend. I found pretty good deals on the HXi series, 180€ for the HX850i, and 240€ for the HX1200i. I know what many are going to say, 850w is probably more than I'll ever need from a PSU, but I like the idea of running fanless 99% of the time. Also… headroom?
  3. Hey guys, Back in 2014, I needed a cheap but powerful MacOS machine, so I built a hackintosh, and since I only needed CPU power at the time, I went for an intel i7 4790k and used the integrated GPU. Obviously that rig didn't need a lot of power, so I used an old Corsair CX400 PSU I had, and it worked perfectly. Flash forward to april 2020: I'm confined to my flat, and bored to death, so I get a new SSD, a new GPU and stuff those into the old hackintosh I haven't turned on in years. Every game now looks much better than on PS4 pro now, but… that poor old PSU sounds like a jet fighter. Not only is the noise distracting but I'm afraid it's going to fry and take the whole thing out. Current setup is: Gigabyte Z97x-UD3H Intel i7 4790k with Noctua NH-U14s 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz Samsung SSD Interne 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 (500 Go) Gigabyte RX 5700 XT 8Gb Corsair 550D with 6 Noctua NF-A14 PWM I'd like you help in choosing between: Seasonic Prime Titanium TX-650 for 178€ Seasonic Prime Titanium TX-850 for 310€ Seasonic Prime Titanium TX-1000 for 340€ Corsair RM1000x for 200€ Corsair AX850 for 260€ Corsair AX1000 for 320€ Of course I'm open to other suggestions but please keep in mind I'm the "Only buy once but spare no expense" kind of guy. I might overclock both my CPU and GPU in the future, upgrade my motheboard and CPU to AM4 and Ryzen at some point and add a second GPU if that ever becomes a thing again. Also many things are currently out of stock here in France and my choice is therefore pretty limited Thanks in advance!
