    Raidmax is garbage, plain and simple.

    I'm sure the allure of something that cheap is tough to fight, but I recommend you save your hard earned money for a better brand PSU.

    Most anything from Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, Antec, Silverstone, and even the newer BFG, OCZ, and XFX units.

    Don't even touch that psu

    See they've combined the 3.3 and 5 rails with the 12v rails to come up with the rating.

    That means the PSU is over rated and is probably only 350 w or something horrible.

    I thought it and tried not to say it. So cheers to you for reading my mind (and almost all others)

    If you need a smaller psu like a 500W with some punch then i recommend a enermax liberty 500AWT. its modular and has the power to run a higher end machine.

    ive had good luck with antec too. general consensus antec is preferred. the earthwatts is a good line. i have seen a earthwatts come DOA but im sure its a very rare occurrence.
