I am about to make a new beast so to speak and really have only ever trusted PC Power and Cooling Power Supplies

 

now that they changed their name to Fire Power, has their Quality suffered? 

 

IS say this, http://www.newegg.co...1-018-_-Product

 

Still the best for the price or is Seasonic Corsair or another PSU Brand better now.  (been a long time since I could locate that Power supply guide lol)

I would step up to this http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817438017evga's G2 series in my eyes is about the best you can get.   It makes Tomshardware's tier 1 list and comes highly recommended by JonnyGURU

 

Without looking up that powersupply and a company name change i would be taking a second look at the fire power brand,  seems like a lot of reviews say it has short cables and causes issues when installing.


 Primary Rig - i5-4670k - Asus Maximus VII Hero - Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB @ 2133 CAS9 - Evga GTX 980 - Silverstone 1200w

Second Rig i5 2600K @ 4.2Ghz -Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z -Mushkin Redline ddr3 8Gb -EVGA 780 ti classified -Silverstone 850w

Third Rig - MSI GT60 2OD Laptop - i7 4700MQ @ 3.2Ghz - 16Gb ram - Nvidia GTX780m - 128,120,240msata ssd - 1TB HD

Fourth Rig -i7 980x @4.2GHz -Asus Rampage 3 extreme -Mushkin Ridgeback ddr3 12Gb -4 GTX 670 superclock+ -Evga 1600W G2

 

I dont fail. I just succeed at finding out what doesn't work.

It looks like the major change happened when they were bought out by OCZ. If you go to their website, they still offer their turbocool series power supplies which is a good thing. Those were the high quality ones we wanted. I agree with Olokul and would go with an EVGA PSU if not the PC Power and cooling.

So is this one enough, http://www.newegg.co...8-017-_-Product

 

 

For this card, only reason I ask is because it says minimum need for the card is a 600 watt psu and I know the EVGA psue is not 750 Continuous

http://www.newegg.co...682-_-Product.?

You don't need a 600 watt PSU for any video card...

That said, all PSU ratings are continuous output.
Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

EVGA G2 series, Any Seasonic or Corsair AX series are all good. Wouldn't trust much else.

I have a PCP&C PSU post-takeover. I had it replaced after 4 years, and the new one is fine.

That said, the quality is not what made them great. I wouldn't prefer them these days.
