    Hey guys, just wondering if there are any owners of this PSU out there.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817148028
    I'd really appreciate your comments, cuz I'm thinking of choosing this for my next build (long way to go, but good to know). It's freaking sexy(looking) and reviews seem to be decent.
    But Apevia has proven mediocre sometimes so I'd like to hear of your comments for all you owners of this one out there. If its just too risky, I'll be going for Corsair's HX620 or Tt's Toughpower 750w. But this PSU just looks so goooood.

    vvvvvvvvvv(subject to change but just to give an idea)vvvvvvvvvv
    I'm going for a Tt Armor w/ the 25 cm fan and
    I'm planning to run something like a raptor 150gb + Seagate 750gb with Tt hardcano clamshell coolers, R600 :D, 2 Dvd drives, Floppy/Cardreader, e6600, CNPS 9700, 2GB corsair xms2, bunch of lighting/fans/controllers/etc/etc all on the Asus P5W DH Delux .

    But eh I might not be building this for a year or so. Just obsessed with planning :eek:

    Post specs and duration of ownership if possible. Comments from non-owners also welcomed!

    Thanks! I'm off to snooze

    read that.

    also i have a few allied and apetvia psu's, i avoid them now, not because i have had alot of those 2 brands fail on me, but because i have seen them be unreliable or fail on to many others.

    honestly stick with a top OEM branded unit.

    the TT unit your looking at AFIK is made by Fortron, so why not get it from the OEM insted of paying the TT markup?

    Good Morning and Thnx Ashen!

    I'll start poking around for those since I see that even ur 400W can handle all that in ur specs. Awesome.

    All three are good power supplies. I also recommend Enermax and Corsair (both very good) Out of the bunch, and based off price, I would go with the FSP (Fortron) 700W Quad SLI. Thats just my opinion. All 3 are unique and awesome and would fit in about 95% of cases out there.

    agreed if you really want/think you need a psu in that range go fortron.

    waregal, the enermax are made by CWT - Channel Well Technology they make
    Lead Power, Enermax, Xclio and others.(the good antechs vs the newer crappy models from cheaper makers.)

    its not about the wattege, its about the quility and ampage, my 305watt enermax psus that are 5+years old can power this system without struggling(they dont even get warm)
