OC3D Best of 2014

It is difficult to look beyond the Corsair AX1500i. Yes it is so expensive that only the most well-heeled could afford it, but on the flipside only the people with the most demanding systems would need it. If you doubt that and the old truths about monster PSUs still linger, then it's worth mentioning that a i7-5960X and a GTX780Ti pull about 500W in total. So quad GPU setups only need apply. But if you do require this much power, or perhaps you've won the lottery and tired of steak, the Corsair AX1500i is the finest PSU on earth.
The Leadex Super Flower Platinum is one of the few choices available if you want an all-white PSU. There are many things we love about it, such as those arctic looks, the light-up power connectors, and the flat cabling. Yes the fan is a bit loud when compared to some of the most silent models around, but if you've only known the hellacious noise that comes from unbranded PSUs then you can have no complaints at all. Low ripple and a tolerable price make it worthy of note.
