Corsair 1000HX has fully sleeved cable whereas the Enermax (1050W Revolutions 85+) is only sleeved up to the first connector.

 

Enermax (1050W Revolutions 85+) is 80 PLUS Silver while the Corsair is only 80 PLUS.

 

Do you prefer better looks or marginally better efficiency?

 

The OCZ is the best of both worlds, except it's not in stock :(

yeah i see what you mean and im pretty sure you cant sleeve them yourself with out voiding the warranty

 

the ocz is in stock at a few other places but cokeman said it isnt large enough for what i had in mind sooo i made this thread to find something that is

The evo spreads its rating across 6 different 12v rails. The OCZ Z series have one huge 12v rail , and in the case of the Z1000 it is a single massive 83A rail - IMO better for overclocking and multi GPU setups then balancing individual rails.

 

I would go with the Z1000 and not have to worry about anything. I have the Z850 with the 71a 12v rail, and plan to run quad 4870 GPUs(twin X2s), 6 120x38mm high speed deltas, misc case fans, etc.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817814010 found this guy... anyone have any input on it? silver eff and 87 amp on a single 12volt rail... in therory sounds perfect...

I was getting ready to comment on it probably being rated at a generous 40c like the cheapo brands, but according to the spec sheet it is using the 50c rating as well...that is a genuine beast of a psu for that price!!! That doesn't tell the whole story though, so I would look for reviews and tests first of course to measure its voltage ripple at load and the low load efficiency(which is typically low). From what I see I can agree that it sounds awesome - not as efficient as the OCZ but looks even more powerful.

 

Where's Lilkev when you need him?? :lol:

im just really debating on the corsair or the ocz... the ocz is if it holds true to its specs a better psu however the corsiar works better for my case being the flat cables... would be much better cable management... i just dont wanna fall short on power sooo if i could have one or two more opinions.... id be delighted and id know the right choice

I'm with Frank here and say 1000W won't be enough especially with reports that the power consumption of a single HD5870 will be "somewhere north of 300W"! That does seem rather alot but let's just say 500W for two in crossfire for the sake of argument. Taking the rest of the system into account you could be looking at 700~800W at full tilt. The OCZ 1000W will run the system but it's a little too close for comfort especially if overclocking is planned. A 1200~1250W unit would definately be the safer option!

 

Have you considered the Sapphire Pure 1250W I reviewed recently here. The LED fan looks very well if that's your cup of tea? :lol:

 

Edit: I haven't voted but I suppose I'd go for the Enermax Evo Galaxy at 1250W from your options.

 

Cheers
