Default Which PSU

Dudes,

((NOTE: if you vote for Corsair, please elaborate why below -tks) <- added 11/10)

I've taken it as common knowledge the past few years that the PCP&P Turbo Cool 1200w was the ultimate overclocking PSU. Then a year or so ago Shammy posted how the Antec 1200 Quattro was the best PSU. Now, lately, I've heard people expressing really good things about the Corsair AX1200.

I am going to once again rebuild my gamer, and take it out of the corsair 800D and put it back onto a banchetto 101. I also want to keep 2 bench ready rigs.

I have 2 of the PCP&P units and 1 Corsair unit. I want to make sure that the best benching PSU makes it onto at least if not both of the bench ready rigs without having to spend more $$. I also have a PCP&P 950watt silent series PSU that may work for the gamer

Would appreciate your thoughts. Vote in the poll, and maybe expand in the forum what your thoughts are.

Thanks

I went with the ax as I have one and it has seemed to be plenty

Patch is the best man to answer this with his 4x exploits I am sure he pounds them pretty hard.

If I was to buy one today I would probly roll with this 4x30A per rail monster

My Antec 1200w was the shiz in the Banchetto. Never pushed it though and haven't tried any others so I can't vote.

I heard too many stories of those Antec 1200 OC PSUs blowing up motherboards to feel comfortable with them

Zippy/Emacs first, http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate...rUrl=Translate
Not pretty, but very powerful and consistant, and almost no ripple.
Then PCP&C Turbo Cool

Voted Turbo Cool. Should have voted other.

Too late now Bro

Difficult following the specs with the translation, but that thing looks like a monster, a fucking ugly monster, but a monster non the less. We'd have to ship it to OCM to sleeve it before using

What do those sell for ?

Just under $300. Yes.......sleeve it. It's an ugly bastard. It's meant for servers so I guess nobody would see it anyway.
