Hi
I'm planning on a new editing and motion design rig
I've already bough a ryzen 9 5900x and a b550 MSi mb

Case is 4000d

Looking for the psu

GPU will be RTX 3060 12GB

 

I was thinking between Seasonic Focus GX 750W and Corsair RM750x. I had the oppurtunity to try the latter for a pc rig and the integrated caps in the cabled really pissed me off. So i was looking for an alternative
Not to mention, in italy the seasonic is like 50 bucks cheaper

which one should i buy?

thanks

Both will do equaly well. They are both very reliable units with 10 year warranties 🙂
They are both very quiet in terms of operation but the Rmx wins in terms of noise levels.   I personaly use the RM750i/x and I love it, I have never heard the fan spinning and its been bulletproof.  Used the RMx series in over 20 builds without issues.

The Rmx series usually score a bit higher in reviews than the Focus GX.

But for 50 bucks less?  Buy the Focus GX 750W. The Rm750x is not 50 bucks better than the Focus GX.

No Problem 🙂  The Focus GX series is one of the most popular PSU's on the market.
10 year warranty, reliable, good noise levels and the price is good.

There's a lot between the Focus and RMx.

 

First https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/ZCQcCJ/nzxt-c750-2022-750-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-pa-7g1bb-us is better than the Focus for a comparable price. Better platform, better fan, better fancontrol, 50 degree rating instead of 40 degree and better cables and connectors.

 

https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/nhC48d/msi-mpg-a850g-pcie5-850-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-mpg-a850g-pcie5 is ATX3.0 and even Corsairs own Shift is not much more expensive than the regular RMx https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/bGJp99/corsair-rm750x-shift-750-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-side-interface-atx-power-supply-cp-9020251-na There's no reason to buy the Seasonic or regular RMx.

LOL, it's Tier A.

Ironic... it's listed as being a Seasonic Focus in the tiers spreadsheet. 

I've been using computers since around 1978, started learning programming in 1980 on Apple IIs, started learning about hardware in 1990, ran a BBS from 1990-95, built my first Windows PC around 2000, taught myself malware removal starting in 2005 (also learned on Bleeping Computer), learned web dev starting in 2017, and I think I can fill a thimble with all that knowledge. 😉 I'm not an expert, which is why I keep investigating the answers that others give to try and improve my knowledge, so feel free to double-check the advice I give.

The V1 is a Seasonic Focus inside. The V2 (or 2022) I recommand has the CSZ platform by CWT.

Which is interesting since CWT brand is listed without models. Manufacturer only?

Both are fine, I prefer Seasonic from personal experience, but at that price difference I would take whichever is cheaper.

With the NZXT C750 Gold V2 (2022) there's a better alternative for the Focus GX for less money.

 

Edit: I see the price of the NZXT raised with €33 since my latest reaction. https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/NVBzK8/enermax-revolution-df-x-1050-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ert1050ewt dropped a lot and it's ATX3.0. This would be my first recommandation atm.

What is conserning about Enermax. It's one of the oldest PSU brands. Like any other brand they have good and bad PSUs. The Revolution DF X is one of the best 1000w PSUs on the market.

Some of them were, but their newer ones are made by more reputable manufacturers.

With all PSUs you mean all PSUs? No, Super Flower and Seasonic are just small manufacturers. CWT, Delta, FSP, Great Wall and HEC for example, are much lager OEMs.
