I'm looking to build a new triple 6990 rig and I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a choice of power supplies.
I know that a lot of you in the community use the AX1200 which here in Australia is more expensive then the Strider 1500W.
So I'm not sure which one to choose; the AX has a single +12v rail where as the Strider has 8 +12V rails but has a higher wattage.
I own the 1200W Corsair and run dual 6990s and a 6970 with no problems. I've seen pictures of 3 6990s powered under the 1200W Corsair, so I would say it's possible. It's a great power supply, and comes packaged very nicely to boot. I would venture to guess it's more expensive because of the brand name. You'd probably have no problems with either of them, though.
