    Re: Which Power supply ???

    For a personal point ive always found the selling point of corsair PSUs to be the 5year warranty, if their confident enough to give you 5 years its means their bloody built well lol.

    Post links to the 2 PSUs so peeps can compare.

    Re: Which Power supply ???

    If you let us know ur system then we can help more as you may not need a 600W one and could just have a 500W one instead.

    Re: Which Power supply ???

    I have a 550W BeQuiet Dark Power Pro and it's been powering my PC silently for 2 years with no problems (and it looks gorgeous ). Also BeQuiet PSUs are all modular as far as I know and the Corsair one you linked is not. Of course the one you linked is a very reliable and well regarded PSU.

    Tell us what rig it's gonna be powering and a link to the BeQuiet to compare so we can help you decide

    Re: Which Power supply ???

    That OCZ PSU really looks great, and between that and the Corsair and BeQuiet you have a lovely decision to make because they are all good PSUs. However both PSUs you linked to are not modular and I would personally go for a modular one because having removable cables makes your job so much easier and tidier. This Enermax looks like a good deal at £70 and 500W is plenty for your rig:

    Re: Which Power supply ???

    If you need 4 PCI-E power connectors I would get this PSU:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159920

    It is made by Seasonic.

    I would also look at this Seasonic unit too:
