    Short circuit protection will protect against major rail shorts but unfortunately in some cases when a component on a board shorts it can damage the board before any sort of protection on the PSU could kick in.

    component level can definitely be tricky as even if the psu shuts off the caps on the board still have power. and in some cases alot of power stored up.

    Yes please, we need more White-Ra's out there! Speshul Taktix for the win!

    I would like to see a more affordable (and sensible) elite case from TT, Level 10 (GT) is a bit too hard to work with. Something along the lines of Corsair 800D, but different.

    Thermaltake PSUs are generally of high quality, I would not hesitate to recommend them if the price is right.

    thats the thing, £55 is very good price for a 575W modular, but it's still a lot more then i really want to pay at the moment

    What are the chances it will break, and if it does break, can i carry on using it like my current one?

    Toughpower XT are excellent PSU's but I would hesitate to ask what hardware can you hook to it.

    I would much rather ask what hardware do you plan to run so I can better recommend the correct PSU.

    I have one here at my desk :) its a great unit depending on your expectations.

    Its not gonna beat a custom loop but for a good liquid cooling that just works.... then you will like it alot.

    it will be a mildly overclocked phenom ii B55, and a GTS 250, but it may eventually stretch to a GTX 560 or a 6870 (or even a 600/700 or 7000/8000) series, as i keep tech for a very long time, there will be 2 hard drives (for the moment) as well as some fans, neon lights etc

    It sounds like that should be fine. However if you were to go multi card it could be problematic.

    it should be fine and even with a lil headroom for that setup

    just how tough are they though?, because my current PSU has been broken for 3 weeks, (ordinarily, i'd send it back under warranty, but i bought it here and the user i bought it from is not responding to my PM's) and yet i've still been using it to power my rig.

    Basically, does it fit my needs of something that'll provide power no matter what happens to it, and will it last for 10 years +

    I wish I could say it would last 10 years but im not going to lie to you. Anyone who guarantees a computer component WILL last you 10 years is lying to you.

    but the PSU is a good model and for your usage I would recommend it.

    The problem with what you ask is will it last anything that happens to it, well yes it is strong but anything that happens can mean some really bad stuff that no component will survive :(

    you guys really putting my feet to the coals quick eh? ;)

    I guess the only real question I have about the PSU now is... WILL IT BLEND?

    A suggestion for your next refresh of top end PSU models (platinum perhaps?). 100% modular. People seems to be craving that. I guess it makes working in a rig easier when you can take all the cables out, and for dual psu mods.

    the metal case would likely avoid its ability to blend well but it may be fun to watch :D

    The problem with fully modular design is that your always going to use a 24pin and a 8 pin... and those are very critical power connections so we like to have them hard wired/soldered to ensure good solid power connections.

    when you introduce a modular connector you introduce a possible weak point which is one wire is loose can cause build up of heat and unstable power delivery.

    if you look at the Toughpower Grand series the only non modular connections are the 24 pin and the ATX CPU 12V connections. :)

    Cases with bigger side windows? I would barely consider my V4 as having a window, while the new Commander MS-I (which IMO looks like an improved V4) and Spacecraft VF-I have what you would call "half a window."

    A new non-tower CPU cooler? 4-6 heatpipes, with 120mm LED fan...it would be around 130-140mm high (with the fan thickness included in that).
