PCP&C Silencer 750W VS. OCZ GameXStream 850W?

Recommended Posts

Get the Seasonic, your ears'll thank you.

 

4 PCI express connectors.. holy DFUGWUoUF3 that is a lot of power. Is there really a sane reason for 4 cards? How would you cool them all, surely those nonsense stock coolers will do nothing.. how would you fit them all in a case with a waterblock that takes up one PCI slot in addition to the one the card is in?

 

I an not a gamer, but I would like to see how this is pulled off.

Don't the 8800GTXs use two? So with SLI 8800's you would need four. And I think the new ATI cards are going to need two also.

I read somewhere on XS that some of the newer videocards are going to require an 8-pin PCI-E power connector along with a standard 6-pin one.

 

Yes, the 8800's do infact require 2x PCI-E power connectors.... makes you wonder. If nVidia is the more efficient card in terms of power consumption, and they require 2 connectors, makes you rethink Crossfire R600 since Radeons have been power hungry as of late.

As for how you can tell...well I recall seeing a list somewhere about where power supplies come from but you'd have to Google it a bit to find it.

 

This be it?

Not to me, they're still built by PC Power & Cooling specs. The Turbo-Cool line is just held to a slightly higher standard than the Silencer line is all.

 

I've had excellent, excellent luck with my 510 ASL and will certainly get another PC Power & Cooling PSU should I ever need one.

It was linked in the PSU Guide!

I should be back full time in about a month or so.

No mention on PC Power & Cooling website or unit specs - how can you tell?

It said so on the PC p&p site when I was looking into them.

they are the same.

 

but pcpc has a better warranty

 

so thats a bigger selling point.

 

but i myself use a seasonic m12-700 instead because i wanted modular.
