    Perhaps my expectations are messed up, but I have yet to be impressed by any of the units reviewed thus far. Then again, when spending $150 to $200 for a PSU, I am going to set my sights very high. Reply

    They used 3 x Primary caps, which is more expensive than 1 450uF, but since they are in parallel, the ESR reduces significantly. Although this may have a minimum bearing on the proceedings (secondary side is more important), there is less stress on the PWM/switching transistors.

    I think you may have issues calibrating your setup, given that every single PSU you have reviewed seems to have larger than usual voltage drops.

    Given this, and that the rails do not seem to be solid/heatsink is too small, I think the PC power and cooling PSU is still the better buy.

    Besides that PC Power and Cooling is a well respected PSU OEM, why even bother with something else in the same price range.

    Who makes this PSU anyhow ? I know it is silverstone branded, but I am fairly certain they did not make it.
