New Powersupply for a new build

Morning all,

 

I'm looking at putting together the following new build and I'm really struggling with which powersupply to pick

 

5800x

X-570 Strix

Asus 3080 TUF

corsair pci-4 nvme.

 

I have very limited stock locally so I don't really have a lot of choice PSU wise. 

 

I have the following options:

 

  • SEASONIC Focus GX-850 £135

  • Corsair RM850 £124

  • SuperFlower LEADEX III ARGB 850W 80 PLUS GOLD £123

  • Kolink CONTINUUM 850W 80 PLUS PLATINUM £125

 

Out of these which ones would you recommend? I'm thinking the seasonic as I've heard very good things about it

Yes get the seasonic

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*

 

Primary PC: *planned* CPU: AMD 5600X / 5800X | GPU: 3070ti (When released) | RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 2X16 = 32GB @ 3600MHZ DDR4 | MOBO: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280 (Planning for custom watercooling in spring 2021 after I bought the GPU) | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD | SDD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB |

Everything thats not colourful I haven't bought yet.

 

Secondary PC: CPU:  INTEL Q8200S @ 2.33Ghz | GPU: GTX 750 ti / 760 | RAM: 4X2 = 8GB @ 800MHZ DDR2 OCZ Platinum | MOBO: ASUS P5E-VM SE | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280* | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB* | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD* | SSD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB* 

Everything marked with * is what I bought for the Primary PC and I'm just using it until I get all the parts.

I’ve never heard of leadex or continuum myself.  Doesn’t necessarily mean much. 
the tierlist does mention that the seasonic one is higher tier, but only if made after 2018 or something.  There’s a little red [1] footnote about it. 

Assuming it’s a newer one, the seasonic I’m seeing as tier A while the Corsair is tier C

The Leadex III is by superflower

 

Continium is by kolink

Superflower ive heard of.  My memory is They’re an actual manufacturer rather than a rebrander.  Seasonic is too though apparently they’ve been known to also rebrand stuff. Superflower makes all kinds of quality levels of stuff for many different rebranders. I don’t know what they put under their own name though. Superflower has a tier A rating for SOME of their leadexIII PSUs but there seem to be caveats which I don’t understand

 

im seeing Kolink mentioned.  They do have a couple 850w PSUs in tier B, but they have addendums to their names.

The Leadex III would be my pick, out of the units you listed. 

 

The Focus doesn't offer anything compelling to justify the extra 10 quid (and will, in fact, most likely be louder), and neither does the RM (it uses lesser quality caps, not that it reaaally will make a difference in the real world).

I've never looked into the Kolink Continuum before, but looking at Aris' review of it (here), it looks like its protections are really poorly implemented, to a point that I wouldn't really consider going for it. Granted that's the 1200W variant, not the 850W, but I can't imagine that they're vastly different from one another.

I'm leaning leadex myself now

Looking at the tier list

The iii ARGB (which I'm getting as the non rgb is out of stock) 

 

Looks like it's gold rank
