    Did you do any comparison of reviews of the equivalent OCZ model?

    Hopefully it is a good one...a good quality PSU is an investment that will last you over multiple hardware configurations.

    Well no, I didn't look at that. However it had all the features I wanted and the right output and connections. I can't afford a £120 PSU so I will see how it goes.
    Incidently, the current PSU is an antec true power 500 that I have had in my last couple of machines, do it has done well to last about 5 years.

    While not a Seasonic/Corsair, OCZ PSUs aren't really dangerously rubbish, either.

    They aren't great either. You get what you pay for.

    Who makes the low end Corsair PSUs now?

    Is Seasonic the only entirely trusted PSU manufacturer of quality now then? How's PC Power & Cooling? IIRC they make their own as well.

    well I got one and the quality looks good and it is nice and quiet!
    It comes well boxed.

    and a nice Novatech badge. :geek:

    PSU has the main 20+4 cable and 2 x 8 pin cabled hardwired to it. Would have been nice to have one of the 8 pins removable maybe? Nice bag to hold the extra wires too.

    The side stickers for you:

    And the extra wires that come with it.

    Quality of the connectors was good, better than the outgoing antec, although I might have to alter the HDD cables as I have 3 drives quite close to each other and having a proper straight run would be better than the loops I now have. The wires are all sleeved and heatshrunk at the ends. Much better than could have managed.

    So I shall see how it goes and let you all know.
