Which PSU brand will you prefer for Gaming/OC?

As title, for above 600Ws. Any particular reasons?

I bought an Enermax Galaxy 1KW PSU for my Crossfire setup and I can't fault it

Heard Corsair PSU's are very good, I have a 600w Silver Power (search oc3d reviews) and a 460w Coolermaster and both are great.

My corsair 620HX is giving me a problem. Which is that when I switch the back switch on the PSU on, it makes a electrical bursting noise?

Even if it does blow up I will still go for Corsair simply because it has never ever given me any problems for a very, very, very long time.

Have always been a TT person, don't know why. I always opt for the Tough Power ones, they have yet to fail on me and I am currently on a two and a half (maybe older) TT TR470w and it is still going very strong! Even with the 130w of energy I draw from it with my CPU at max load LOL!

I love my Silverstone Strider 750W. Had it for about 3-4 months now and I can't fault it! Quite a nice looking power supply, modular, and the cables are wrapped up nicely.

Have you noticed that it must be part of the 'other' category.
