    Newegg is now stocking eVGA's two BEASTLY deals of PSUS based on the Gold Variant of the Super Flower Leadex platform. I guarantee they will sell out. They just started stocking today. I would buy the 750 or 850W ASAP if you want it. It completely annihilates your Silverstone choice and any Seasonic Gold unit within the range on both price and performance. This is not the same as the NEX Bronze/Gold. NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!! I just ordered an 850 to go dual PSU on my rig a few minutes ago.

    850 = $159 - 10 rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817438018

    It's a rebrand of the same PSU which Johnnyguru rates like a 9.7. eVGA did it up in black and blacked out cables.

    They are nice, however the form factor is too big for my intended build. The Silverstone is 140mm long, fully modular, it just barely fits with the gtx 780.
    The EVGA PSU's are both over 177mm long and would contact the gfx card when installing.

    Yep, that is true. Unfortunate.

    I really do appreciate the insight and advice. It isn't falling on deaf ears. I'm still in the research and planning phase on this build. I'm certainly not afraid to modify a case to make it work. The case is the cheap part. I really don't want to skimp on hardware.

    You do know that jonny guru is a Corsair employee and has nothing to do with the website

    Well guys... Once again I have to take a break from doing reviews.

    Last month I took a job with Corsair. To avoid conflict of interest, I'm going to refrain from doing power supply reviews.

    The position I've taken is more of a marketing position, as opposed to the product development stuff I've done in the past, but maybe it'll be a nice change of pace. The kinds of things I'm working on are marketing documents, blog posts, etc. In fact, this week they posted my first bit of work. I basically took apart the new AX1200i and pointed out how it's different and why. Check it out if you'd like: http://www.corsair.com/us/blog/ax-se...nical-overview

    And if you like it, please "like" it on Facebook and stuff.

    Early next week I'm posting load test results for the AX1200i. Sort of a mini-review. Of course, the 6th is the embargo date for the AX1200i so the web is going to be inundated with reviews.

    Yes, I am fully aware he took a job with Corsair however the people who write for it own power supply testers that cost over $2k so I would assume they know what they are doing. All I own is a lowly Tektronix scope

    I have nothing to add brother, except, Welcome to ROG. You are in great hands here ..
    If you have the slightest question .. you know what to do. Ask.
    These guys are nothing short of the best guys in the world .. and they even
    know a few things about ROG'n it right.
    Don't forget to hit RealBench2 when you get it all together .. maybe a OC Challenge
    or two for learn'n and just enjoying like mind'd folk.

    I love this bar. You will too... .c.

    Well I think I may come in real close or just over my 3k mark with this one.

    I have another grand tied up in my liquid cooling.

    I went a route that I knew would handle the games I play reasonably well. There is still room to upgrade in the future.
