PSU choice-Opinions wanted
As I have posted elsewhere, after just 14 months my Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 850 watt PSU gave up the ghost a couple of weeks ago.
It was out of it's 12 month warranty from CCLonline: CCL Computers - Awarded PCPro Best Online Retailer 3 years running for PC, PC Components, Laptops, Notebook, Computer Components, Intel Servers, Hard Drives, PC Memory
I didn't have an invoice or the original packaging but they agreed to RMA it for me to Be Quiet! in Germany. Amazing eh?
Be Quiet! are unable to repair it so they have sent CCL a credit note.
Interestingly CCL no longer stock Be Quiet! products, but they have immediately offered me a cash refund or a choice of these three PSUs:
Corsair Professional Series Gold AX850 Power Supply Unit (850 Watts)
850W Antec Signature Modular Power Supply
Home > Products > Power Supplies & UPS > Performance PSUs > 800W and Over 1000W Corsair HX1000W Modular Power Supply
So. Which should I choose? My specs are there and will remain the same for a while. I may upgrade my GPU at the end of this year but will probably keep my current mobo and chip for another couple of years.
I would really value any input on this. I'm gonna start reading reviews now but I need to make a quick decision.
Thanks in advance, John
PS Damn fine company CCL I reckon. A lot of companies would have left me making long distance calls to Germany.
