    Hi,
    Im in the uk and my trusty Corsair HX620 is dying (boot recycles) so im looking at grabbing a new one for my sig system. I was hoping to grab a white one to match the theme of my build but as its hidden, it isn't the most important thing. Ive looked around and ive found the following:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/760w...fan-atx-psu-factory-refurb-uk-cable-12-month-

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1000...m_medium=cpc&gclid=CKC8ye-v5cYCFSjlwgodGfEBSg

    Im considering (possibly later this year) to grab another 970 and add it the GPU loop I have. The Corsair above has a nice discount but part of me wants to grab the SuperFlower PSU, but its 650w and I aint sure that will be enough SLI 2x 970 GTX and the 10 fans and 2x water cooling pumps I have running in my system

    I'd say the Superflower because it's the same manufacturer as for EVGA's PSUs. Very reliable and rock-solid rails. I don't go for Corsair's PSUs myself. I've had two of them fail on me. People love them and see them as dependable - fair enough, but i've not had a good experience, so I prefer not to waste my money.

    However, 650w for sli is cutting it too fine really.

    On that basis, i'd choose the fractal design, as they're well-made; that one has a strong 12v rail and it's 80 plus platinum, so it's very efficient.

    Haha ye I was trying to appease the wife a little but by the time I would have paid for shipping from overclockers it was like £94 anyway for 650.

    I opted for the Fractral Design 1000w lol, overkill but future proof =)
