    CustomPC uses indepth ( not to mention expensive ) equipment in they're Labs test similar to that article. I wouldn't trust any other source for a PSU review.

    That's very encouraging /sarcasm, especially seeing as most of this info comes for bit tech/custom pc anyway and everything else is personal experience...

    might as well add the XFX 850W Black Edition Modular PSU to this list. Essentially a Seasonic M12D with even more impressive test results...

    Hi there , I already replaced the noisy ball bearing fan with a GELID sleeve bearing fan ( lubricated by myself with a creamy Zirconium grease ) , now this Silencer 910W is finally total silent ,of course I swap upside down the direction of the airflow inside the PSU to allow only fresh air to enter into the PSU , the case is also a Silverstone RAVEN RV02 modded upside down , to allow vertical airflow please see the pictures

    I have found another intresting advantage of the PC Power & Cooling 80mm layout , the 80mm fan allow partial airflow below ( not only above ) the PCB inside the PSU , the 120mm layout fan cannot send airflow above the PCB of the PSU , therefore the air above the PCB of the PSU become hotter

    You could try directing a cooling fan onto it to keep the heat down... at the area where heat is trapped, maybe an antec spot cool

    Hi there , my Blue gelid 80mm Fan send airflow above and below the PCB inside of the PSU therefore I have not problem , the people with problem with the heat trap above the PCB of the PSU are the people with a 120mm fan inside the PSU

    While not a super PSU, when on one of scans spechials it's great deal


    Scan do it fo £50 or £60 on a today only
    NorthQ Black Magic Flex 850W << 8.5/10 from jonnguru


    The other one is the "700W FSP700-80GLN" which goes for £30 on a today only
    which is the OEM version of the "FSP FX700-GLN"
    Shorter fixed cables, but alot PSU for the money, SLi ready 2x6pin

    Both PSU's are ok in their own right, but they drop to 1/2 price about once a fortnight.

    I'm looking at either:

    • Be Quiet 650W Dark Power Pro - £101
    • Antec TruePower New 650W Modular - £89
    • Corsair TX 650W - £73

    With almost a £30 difference would the Corsair be a better choice?

    I'm quite happy with my Be Quiet! Straight Power 500W. £80 it cost me when I bought it late 2007. Wish it was modular though..

    The corsair HX-850 is modular, the list shows it as non modular.

    I'd recommend the Silverstone ST75F. It is a 750Watt Modular power supply. Works great and every single cable is modular and uses standard connectors on the PSU end except the SATA power connector. I love mine.
