Silverstone or Antec best psu i recommend so far sli or crossfire setups need at least 750watt depends on what cards you are running Antec have psu on their website that calculates components etc and gives you around about best psu for you

Hey noskcaj,

Problem is that only I can edited the my posts and therefore the list.

Also, this list only uses reviews from the following sites Anandtech, Hardware Secrets, Jonnyguru and Silentpcreview unless, another site actually tests PSU's properly like the fore mentioned and the PSU's must be on the Australian market.

Thanks for the offer anyway. :)

We can always make it a community effort: if anyone has a PSU they'd like to recommend, search reviews of it on the mentioned sites and leave comment below. OP can then edit the first post with the recommendations. ;)
Disco Bench 3820, RIVE, 3x2GB 1333Mhz CL9, Palit GTX580, 256GB OS SSD, 2x500GB RAID0 Dump Drive, Seasonic 1200w Platinum, CM HAF X

A Better Way to Compare PSU Efficiency. By using power lost vs load.

Desktop: i7 6850K @ 4.3GHz | Titan X (Pascal) | 32GB RAM | 120GB + 500GB SSDs | 2x 5TB HDD in RAID1

Server: G3258 @4.6GHz | 120GB SSD | 2x 4TB RAID1 | 2x 6TB RAID1

Is it worth investing in a high-efficiency power supply?
An interesting read. Seems like paying the extra for higher efficiency, monetarily doesn't benefit you a whole lot.
Unless you run it constantly loaded, then you can see ROI after a couple years.
(This is all with USA power pricings though. In Aus, it might pay off sooner)

fairly bad review unfortunately

they use a cheap power meter which can be way off on some psu and close to accurate on others but there accuracy varies depending on the load aswell
they are going by the psu 80+ ratting which is a very rough guideline as some psu dont even reach there efficiency rating and then there are psu out there like the fsp raider bronze $60 which can get over 90% efficiency which is well above bronze requirements
so they really need to test the psu efficiency curve if they are going to compare them like this
yes au power costs twice as much as us power and is rapidly increasing

edit
say we compare these psu

Thermaltake Smart SP-430P 80Plus $50
Load Efficiency PFC
5% 63.31% 0.790
10% 74.09% 0.835
20% 80.87% 0.896
50% 83.64% 0.937
80% 83.19% 0.967
100% 82.84% 0.973
110% 82.23% 0.975

FSP Raider 450W 80Plus Bronze $60
Load Efficiency PFC
5% 79.49% 0.827
10% 85.36% 0.881
20% 89.07% 0.928
50% 90.54% 0.941
80% 88.93% 0.967
100% 88.21% 0.979
110% 87.57% 0.984

asuming 24\7 use at 30c per kw will exagerate these numbers but it makes for a good baseline
88w ~20% waist power = tt 16.83w $44 fsp 9.61 $25 = $19 saved per year
220w ~50% = tt 35.99w $95 fsp 20.81w $54 = $41 saved per year


COOLER MASTER Extreme 2 475w unrated by 80plus
77.2% efficent at ~50% load
220w waist power = 50.16w per hour $131.8 a year so you can save $77 per year by getting a more efficient budget psu


Corsair TX-850 V2 bronze $169
80% load 83.7% efficient $350 per year
Enermax Platimax 850W $275
80% load 89.4% efficent $210 per year


CoolerMaster 600W Extreme $69
521.4W dc =727w ac
Antec EA-650-Platinum $119
524.8w dc =581.8w ac
$384 per year difference between these two psu assuming the cm lived that long without killing your pc
