So last night I tried plugging in my new WD 1TB Caviar Green, and I seems that my PSU decided to give up the ghost. Actually quite disappointed in that, since it's an Enermax Noisetaker 600W and this September will only be 5 years old. Siggy has system specs.
Anyways, I'm looking for a good replacement unit, and I'm finding myself at a cross road. My case is an Antec P180, so with the tight quarters underneath, the flexibility of a modular PSU appeals to me. However, I can't really seem to find anything that works. I was thinking about going with the OCZ 700W ModXStream
, but HardOCP's review
and follow up
were pretty unforgiving. Conversely, the PC Power & Cooling 750W Quad CrossFire
looks perfect, if it were modular. Great performance and reviews, and an exceptional price.
Does anyone have a modular PSU that really has a good value proposition, or should I just bite the bullet, the Quad SLI unit, and deal with the excessive cables?
