So I bought a SST-ST1000 PSU 3 years ago, because well...it was pretty awesome and I wanted something awesomely efficient, reliable and future proofed. Well...it's 8 months out of warranty and the 12v rail died. I emailed them if they could service it and I would pay a fee. They emailed me back and said they do not do repairs so I'm SOL. Although I've been in the custom PC game for 15 years now and am aware that things like this happen I can't help but feeling disappointed. My OCZ Powerstream 420W (OCZ's first entry in the PSU market back in the day) is pushing 9 years and still runs stong and at 76% efficiency and it wasn't even a "flagship". But here is Silverstone's flagship that spent 3 years running only 35-40% load and it's already lost it's 12v rail.
But anyways enough of my crying. Time to shop. Can you guys help me out?
Here are my criteria:
Efficiency(looking for 80Gold or Plat)
What I'm running
Full watercooling loop
Things I'll be adding in soon:
Another R9 290x
A second water cooling loop
more fans for the second loop
Overclocking will be done.
Soooooo any recommendations?
Looking at this one: http://en.ofweek.com/Power-Supplies-102216
Same price as what I paid for the silverstone 3 years ago but a 10 yr warranty and now it's 80Platium now.
Any other recommendations will be appreciated.
