Noctua has always got my vote. Quality.
The P500a gets a lot of votes too. Lot of options.

That didn't work well
Why a $340 1000w when heaps of 12000w's are less?
Quality > qauntity ?
I've used 5+ Seasonics over the last 15 years or so and never an issue. Brand loyalty I guess, but based on track record. They always performed the best, long before Corsair/Be Quiet etc even made PSU. JohnnyGuru always rated them, he still around?
If I need more power I can just up it to the next one up. Don't mind. Figured 1000W was.plenty but I don't know how much all this chews.
Mainly depends on your GPU, but my comment was less about wattage and more that you don't gain any actual benefit over the other quality PSUs out there for higher wattage and less price, but you said it in your second last post, brand loyalty is the answer Which is perfectly fine! Value doesn't always have to be the answer, or we'd be all driving around in Camry's.
Well think I'm happy with what's chosen.
Will go Meshify 2. Everyone rates it, why not.
And will try that cheap 3080ti. Some have said 6900XT, but unsure. Haven't used a AMD card since .... Like.....2004?2005?
5 Noctua fans for the case into the PWM headers on mobo. Plus the 2 fitted to the cooler. Should have 7 working together, sit then all on low should be quiet.
Bang a Matrix Element H USB pcie card and we're sorted!
Corsair HX1000 looks good too, more of the cables are sleeved which is nice.
I've had two Corsairs, both been fine too.
I tell you now, air flow and cooling should be your number one priority and noise the 2nd. Hell, if noise is so important build a water cooled loop
D15s, Meshify 2 and 5 Noctua 14mm be ok?
and works at corsair now on their PSUs
i think it was GN did a factory visit to him recently also another visit/talk with him a bit longer back. both worth a casual listen/background stream
Corsair's 4+4/8 pin cpu/motherboard connectors in particular aren't great, the heatshrink makes them so inflexible it's hard to properly use the grommets in the meshify s2.
If I was doing my build over again as well as the few custom cables I got, I'd just go get the full cablemods set for the PSU (or the corsair set, but the idea of paying Corsair again because of their mediocre cables annoys me).
The full sets on Amazon for $30-40 work perfectly fine.
I ordered the seasonic
Hey I use these EZDIY-FAB Sleeved Cable - Cable... https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08S778D2Y?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share . I even do a 180 degree bend on the ATX cable.. See my build https://imgur.com/a/XwYvDRY and https://imgur.com/a/USjJgFz
They even come with a significant amount of cable combs.
Cool. That's enough for what I need?
I don't know what you need, haven't looked at your full build.
If you're getting a GPU that uses 3*8pins and this kit only includes 2 (you need to check) then you'll just need to find a single listing for a 1*8pin and buy that too
Appears to just use 2. So that'll do. Thanks!
Hopefully get a moment to build it in a week or two
