Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

^^ 1st of all how much you want to spend on gfx card ?



Hey nice explanation there.

But CM extreme power plus series is now manufactured by acbel
http://www.acbel.com/

You know that branded smps have a code/number with which we can tell who is the original manufacture.

My CM460W extreme power plus is actually made by acbel & one of friend just bought his 600W extrme powerplus 3 days back & it has the same manufacturer code.
My budget is just 2.5K, at the most 3K.

Thanx

Increase your budget to 3.5K & get

Get Palit 8600Gt 512MB DDR3 edition or else

Get Mercury 8600GT 256MB DDR3 For Rs. 2700 ( I've some doubts about it's build quality )

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Yeah I understand ur WITS very well man, but I dun think most people will agree that Cooler Master, such a huge brand's 600W or 650W PSU can't do better than VX450W.

Corsair VX450W can't even handle a HD4870 afaik, CM600W handles HD4850x2.

man my friend is using HD4870 with VX450 if don't believe then i PM u his Orkut link then u will ask.:eek:


The Corsairs are conservatively rated- means they can hold themselves a lil better.
Right now Corsair is busy establishing itself as a major psu player and reeks quality- something evident very strongly even in the VX450 which is a budget product.
This has been proven by some reputed reviewers with regrds to oem and components.
Price difference bet US and Indian markets is quite low, the lowest i have seen till now and totally worth the lil extra for local 5yr warranty(10 yr warranty).

I have seen some people opt for Tagan500/700 over the VX450/HX620 becoz of the funky connectors- i like them a lot too- but i am a purist.
I don't like modular stuff- more connectors means more signal strength drops and more points for interference to creep in.
Plus if a manufacturer is stressing on bling at a competitive price point, something is amiss somewhere- as there is never a free meal.

A bigger donkey doesn't a horse become.So don't run for WATT.

It will work without any issues.
 
Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Corsair VX450 vs CM extreme power 600 (some key differences)
(1) Rated at 50 degreesC (iirc/afaik) vs rated at 25 degreesC
(2) Active PFC (0.99) vs passive PFC
(3) 80%+ efficiency guranteed vs 65-70% roughly.
(4) Hi-Qual Jap caps vs not so Jap caps:cry:
(5) Double ball bearing fan vs sleeve bearing fan most prolly
(6) 5 yr warranty vs 2/3 yr warranty (heard that low end CM psu like Extreme power series have only 2yr warranty now. )
(7) Seasonic vs Seventeam budget/value range. :)

CM600 is a Seventeam 500 tweaked to show a peak of 600W- so i hope u get the idea.:D
CM prefers to call the Seveanteam500 with the same components a 600 watter- something smells fishy.:lol:
Plus they conveniently miss out on mention of rails in specs and pic of specs chart sticker on the psu on their site- i couldn't find it.:confused:

Secondly, this part of psus cannot be approached in a pure mathematical way- seems u have't understood what efficiency means.:)

If we go forth by your way of interpreting efficiency>
If u need 360W from a VX 450, as per ur calculations, it will draw 450W from the wall socket.
Then the CM 600 at 65% will draw 553W from the mains to provide that same 360W.
Still Who's the Bakra??:))

A lot of reputed reviewers have stated that the Corsair units are very conservatively rated.
If one were to follow CM's rule of rebadging a known not so efficient 500watter as 600W, then maybe the VX450 can easily be badged as a 550-600W unit.:lol:
And maybe Corsair, as per their standards, will call the CM600 a 400W unit, if they make a not so efficient, not so good quality psu i.e.. :lol:

check out




The percentage part for efficiency cannot be directly applied to the amps per rail or total amperage over just the 12v rail, i think.
If that was the case, then maybe we could have managed to manufacture quite efficient psus easily- efficiency is measure over the entire range of power outputted. iirc. .:p
Plus you cannot add up 2 rails directly for total amps on 12v rail- this is most basic of all rules wrt multi-rail psus.

Plus just numbers on paper have nothing to do with the stability and purity of the various o/p signals, etc... which is one of the biggest factors in choosing a psu:cool:




Oh i m learning:D.Never enter a battle of wits unarmed:twisted:.Keep talking, someday you'll say something intelligent!.:confused:

+1
Thanks for bringing up those points and making a substantial case.

If you can spend Rs.5700 Palit 9600GT 512MB DR3
You can take the advantage of CUDA technology. ( Recomended )

If you are not willing to spend not a penny more than 5K then Get Palit or Sapphire HD4650 with 512MB DDR3 @ Rs. 4350 or so.
