Enermax naxn 82+ for half the price

Recommended Posts

which one should i buy? the 850w model with 4 rail or the 750 with 2 rail, both psu sells at $50 and $40... i know this is a mainstream psu but at half the cost it's really appealing.

i'm leaning towards the 750w model since it uses dual high amp rail and there is a lot of good review for this unit, i'm still unable to find a review for the 850w unit but $10 for an extra 100w is giving me a hard time to decide :wacko:

The 750 should be fine if you're not going to do SLI/CF.. Personally I tend to stay away from multi-rails but I've never seen any major issue with the High-End Enermax PSUs..

the fewer +12v rails the better.

I have that exact PSU, and it's been running strong with very good voltages. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking in the range for wattage.

I'd go for the dual rail PSU over the quad rail. The fewer rails the better.

There is no real need for anything above 800w in a desktop PC. You could even run dual video cards on 650w.

This isn't true.

 

I pulled a good 900+ watts from the wall with my older setup. With my current rig full-tilt it'll pull somewhere near 800 watts too.

 

So yeah - it's not common, but there are definitely rigs that will pull that kind of power when overclocked and really loaded down.

You pulled that much from the wall, or the system required that much to run? From my experience, people vastly over-rate how much power they actually need. With these Sandy Bridge systems and newer video cards, consumption is on a downward trend.
