Etern4l Posted October 14, 2022 Share Posted October 14, 2022 Hello, I'm shopping for a new 1600W high efficiency PSU for 24/7 operation under load. The main two criteria are: * Reliability - must be able to handle constant operation under high load in non ACed space * Efficiency - Titanium, given the electricity costs Ideally it would also support 12VHPWR out of the box or a native adapter should be available. So far I really only shortlisted two: * EVGA SuperNova 1600W T2 - PSU of choice of miners, apparently super-reliable including dual ball bearing fans - cost about $330, very poor availability. The EVGA situation is a bit of a concern as regards the 10 year warranty... * Corsair AX1600i - apparently best in class but $500 and some reliability concerns visible in the Comments section on Amazon Had an EVGA 1600W T2 on order, but this got cancelled for me. Any other ideas, or should I take the plunge with the Corsair. At the moment I'm tempted to wait for some new 12VHPWR options, since there is no immediate need to upgrade other than my veteran 1200W PSU's efficiency being 77% lol. Thoughts? 2 "We're rushing towards a cliff, but the closer we get, the more scenic the views are."
