Which one? Gigabyte vs Cooler Master PSUs(+ EVGA,Corsair)

Ok, I'll go staight to question. Which one of this three PSUs would be best bang for the buck?

Please don't reply with recommendation for another PSU because trust me i searched in all local retails and i couldn't find any better PSUs.

 

Here are candidates:

Cooler Master:

MWE Gold 550[W] (Non Modular)           110$ US

MasterWatt 750[W] (Semi Modular)        130$ US

 

Gigabyte:

G750H (Semi Modular)          90$ US

 

(Cheapest prices from local retails)

I would like to know did any of you have had experience with any of these? If so did you have any problems with it, and would you recommend it.

I would say the MasterWatt 750 is the best out of the ones you listed.

It's a Tier 3 on our PSU Tier List: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/

I RMA'd the MWE Gold 550W twice due to cap failures on beginning usage, because I was "pushing it too hard" - Cooler Master. at a total draw of 500W (at the A/C Side, less on the D/C Side) so I strongly advise going with basically anything but that, I have heard good things about the MasterWatt, and its certainly a bit more expensive, but given the powersupply is a most important part of the system, i'd advise throwing more money for the MW750.

 Yea, probably it is best out of all 3, but it is also the most expensive. Only thing i really care about is it not to fry anything, and when i put new gpu in it will not fry itself because i am "pushing it too hardxD So i am trying to get best bang for buck, u guys think MW750 would be best choise? I mean it is 40$ more then Gigabyte and i read that it is good. Right now MWE550 isn't in game :)

MW750 is 80+ Bronze

G750H is 80+ Gold

It literally did, it took my GPU0 with it the first round and it took the motherboard the second.

JG said no, I think that's about all you need to know. That said, the MasterWatt is not a terrible unit, just doesn't make sense for it to have a 750W version. What are your system specs?

Asus Z370-F ROG Strix

I5 8600K (No overclock)

16GB RAM

GTX 1070TI

And that would be it, i mean also 3 RGB fans, rgb lightning.

I want to add better PSU in order to overclock i5 8600K. I currently have Raidmax Cobra 700W, but has reputation on getting on fire.

That system will use like 250W of power. You'd be fine on a 550W version of the MasterWatt.

By this https://outervision.com/b/Aa4znB it doesn't. And when you add overclocking to it https://outervision.com/b/WeLHhf

I mean, i still didn't overclock it because i don't want PSU to catch on fire and destroy any component, thats why i need new one.

They don't make them, but there are a lot of Gigabyte branded PSUs. 

http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page1906.htm

Wait what. How did i miss that. I genuinely thought Gigabyte was making them. By quick search i think CWT PSUs are not that bad.

Does CM make their own PSU, or does it also use OEM to do all work for them?

 

EDIT:

Cooler Master MasterWatt 750 is made by HEC. Now question is, who is better CWT or HEC?

Outervision is garbage. Here's a status update where I talk about how much power my system draws versus what Outervision says. If you want the TL;DR, take whatever Outervision gives you and cut it in half and you've got your power draw.

Well i want quality PSU, i am not trying to cheap out on it and to risk 1000$ components dying

 

This is not for this topic, but:

I just found in notepad that there is EVGA 750 BQ (2Y Warranty) and Corsair CX750 (3Y Warranty) and MW 750 is 5 Years Warranty, is any of this two in any way better then MW? I mean they are both 130$ but with warranty cut in half.

quality =/= wattage

 

Get a good quality 550W unit like MasterWatt or EVGA G2. SeaSonic Focus Plus and Bitfenix Formula are also good options.

I know that, i would love to buy something like that, but best >750W PSU is MWE Gold 550W, thats why every PSU is 750W, under that is all No-Brand, chinese PSU, and from 750W is when something like MW, CX come along. I.e. There is no Brand-Name PSU under 750W, only Cooler Master, and it is MW Lite and Elite V3, best case MWE, which turns out can take components with it. Also i would love to order some from Amazon/Newegg, but there is no shipping option.

So i am kinda left with  EVGA 750 BQ (2Y Warranty) and Corsair CX750 (3Y Warranty) and MW 750(5Y Warranty) and possibly Gigabyte G750H(5Y Warranty)

No.  Because you gave two suggestions and said not to provide recommendations for anything else.

 

You presented us with two PSUs.  One is shit and the other is a complete unknown from an OEM that's never made desktop PSUs before.  So my answer is "no".

Cheapest CX is CX750, cheapest MW is MW750.

 

Sorry i don't have one link that would direct you to site to look at it, but that is it, EVGA G2, Corsair CX750 and HX750, MW750 and up. Nothing else, all other are CM and chinese. No Seasonic, beQuiet, basicly options are close to none. And there is reason behind it, everybody wants quality PSU on nice price 70-80$, but that is why here they don't want them in store because chinese ones are cheaper to buy, so until 100$ they will sell u chinese, and if u want quality ones u buy 100$+ PSU which are 750W.
