New PSU!

Hi!

I'm looking for a new PSU, and was wondering what would be the best alternative.

I need a fully modular PSU because I plan to sleeve, and it must be enough wattage to run cfx/SLI. And I wouldn't mind one of the longer PSUs to fill up my case with. What I've looked at so far are some PSUs from Corsair, Seasonic, Thermal Take and EVGA, but I have no idea what to go for.

Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks!

my Corsair AX750 should arrive tomorrow, it has sleeving and you can order custom sleeved cables as well (idk if they sell those in norway, i intended to buy those, but i would need to import them from the UK which would double the costs . ) should definitely do the job, for sli either the 850W version or the 1200W if you really need it.

What are your rig specs? £300 is quite a large budget for just a PSU.

Yeah, I know they got the sleeved cables at the webstore I use to buy from, but part of the fun is sleeving yourself

Du trenger strengt tatt ikke mer enn 750W. Jeg ville gått for den nye Corsair AX760, alternativt AX860. Disse er i realiteten Seasonic Platinum med Corsair logo. Samtidig kan du spare litt på å velge "den gamle" AX serien på 750/850W.
Dustin Home har ganske ok priser.

I don't know your specs but unless you have a ridiculous quad fire/sli setup an AX760i from Corsair should be more than enough, its fully modular as well
