EVGA PSU vs Corsair PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I'm planning to build my first gaming computer with these components. But I don't know much about power supply's. I was wondering if you could help me which would be better for gaming, Photoshop and general work (e.g. Microsoft word). It's between the  EVGA SuperNOVA NEX, 650w,  80+ Gold Certified, Fully modular PSU and the Corsair CS Series, 650w, 80+ Gold Certified, Semi Modular. 

 

Thanks

Neither. The EVGA is better then the Corsair CS in every area except the most important one which is 12V Vreg. Neither are generally mind blowing PSUs.

 

Get this instead.

I vote EVGA because of dat customer service, but also that PSU comes with (subjectively) better looking cables.

I would personally go with the EVGA, but both would be fine. (The EVGA will be easier to clean up the cables, though)

The EVGA fanboyism is real. People should do research before suggesting just based on brand.

Slow your role mate and stop calling people fanboys.

 

I own EVGA stuff and never had issues with them, so I'm going to recommend them. I don't really care what those benchmarks say, as long as my shit works and have no power issues, GG.

 

Please read the CoC before you go off on a tangent and call people fanboys.

The hypocritical statements......

You're the one going on a tangent buddy, you're the one that should read the CoC. Here it is for you: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/95599-linus-tech-tips-forum-code-of-conduct/

 

There isn't anything that states that being a fanboy or loyal to a brand is not allowed, however neither is anything that states how proving that one product is better then the other even if it's from a less reputable brand is unacceptable behavior. 

 

OP asked a question on which power supply was a better unit, not which one that people liked more from a personal brand-based standpoint, and that is what was answered.

no i havent but im getting the windows 7 and hard drive for free and around £1000

Oh, just noticed you're in the UK. My bad.

 

In that case if you're looking for a great PSU for the money for your PC and want modularity, I'd consider this XFX ProSeries 650W. It's made by Seasonic, so you know it's great quality.

Hypocritical? I don't follow.

Except you did it out of malice.

No, but the way you're coming across isn't promoting a friendly atmosphere either.

Oh brother, I can already hear the BX100 bandwagon coming down the road

There is nothing wrong with the BX100.

If you go with the Corsair 500R though then you won't see the components inside  :) so colour coordinating is a waste with a non windowed case.
