Hi all,
I am choosing a PSU and was wondering if the CORSAIR BUILDER SERIES CX600 V2 600W was any good?

http://www.ifocus.co.nz/Power+Supplies/CORSAIR+Builder+Series+CX600+V2+600W+ATX12V+Active+PFC+Power+Supply+-+Retail.html

I will be using the Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3 mobo with maybe one or two GPUs.
Does this PSU have the right connectors or even enough connectors!
I know I have the right wattage and have heard that Corsair was VERY reliable with their warranties and what-not.

Thanks,
Nerdtastic


BTW - What is an EPS connector, never heard of them. Did some research and found it was an 8 pin 12v ATX connector? HELP!

They're OK but I would go for something a little more than a basic PSU of which these are

go for Silver+ and 750W if you going to want to run 2 GPU's


EPS refers to thee type of power connector on the mother board usually you have both an 24pin main power connector and either an extra 4pin or 8pin power connector located near the CPU socket it provides extra power/current for the CPU

the cpu's power requirements is based on it's TDP ie: 95W or less = 4pin atx connector, 120W or more require either 2x 4pin (no longer used in modern mother boards) or 1x 8pin (EPS) connector
