    Enermax vs. Corsair vs. OCZ

    I have to choose between Enermax Liberty 620W, Corsair HX 620W or OCZ GameXStream 700W SLI.

    I have a good eye to the Corsair but im not sure what would be best.
    It shal not run anything xtream.

    Right now im sitting with the Enermax, but it has a defect, it makes electrical sparkles when i switch it on, withs isnent very nice . Besides that its a relay nice PSU, especially the sleeving is very nice.
    But again im attracted to the Corsair, nice and quirt look, and should be rock stable.

    I'm more partial to the Corsair because of the beefy 12v lines
    Fast computers breed slow, lazy programmers
    The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay.

    I killed a Enermax Liberty 620W a while ago (don´t know why..). Bought another one and this still works^^. And i think i´d go for it again because it´s really good and stable. But the Corsair should also be nice

    Both the Corsiar HX620 and the OCX GXS700w are equally good.

    Pick what you want.

    Corsair is modular, has a quiet fan, is efficient.

    OCZ is more powerful, isn't modular, has an LED but loud fan, is efficient.

    They both have pro's and con's.

    Corsair or Seasonic.
    The Corsairs are made by Seasonic anyway, but they cost less and have modular cables(just like the Seasonic M*).
    If you need more power than the Corsair can deliver, get yourself a Seasonic M12-700 or SS-650HT.

    Enermax Liberty aren't bad either, but the Seasonics are quieter, that's why I buy them.

    Well I've personally had all 3 and have fitted many more to customers PC's I find the Corsair to be the best followed by the OCZ then quite a way back the Enermax, the Enermax's rails moved more than the other 2 and 3 Libertys have now failed out of 18 that I have fitted one in my own PC, they all failed the same big bang then on one of them a piece of a ceramic capacitor fell out of it. I will not be using any more of the 620 Libertys although I think the 850 and 1000 units are very good.

    When DFI-street was still up, the Corsair 620W was Happy_Games choice of PSU, so I would go for that.
