Agreed, toughpowers are made by a decent OEM (forget who) from memory, so they are OK. PSUs are one of those things not to skimp on.

Reps for that smoke filled room

I'm happy with my toughpower 1500w...seems pretty stable and even on heavy load the votages are within about .5% of where they should be.

Yeah, suits me though, although the case is pretty big. Hope its not vaseline, otherwise we could be onto a repeat of Welshy's PSU...:micro:

Its basically the same PSU as the Corsair HX1000. Made in the same factory, same PCB layout. Only thing thats different is the quality of a few capacitors and the fact that Thermaltake milked it for all its worth labelling it as "1500w" whereas Corsair were much more conservative and called it "1000w".
