Atm my psu is on backorder and they dont know when it will arrive =-(... so I might ask them to send me the Zalman ZM600-HP 600W, instead of the OCZ GameXtreme 600... the rails are not as stable as the rock solid Ocz psu but its quieter and close to the same price.

Zalman vrs Ocz Review >>> http://www.rbmods.com/Articles/Zalman/Zm600-hp/2.php

I think its a good idea, but I dont know if it will afect me much not having the rock Solid rails of Ocz when overclocking.

They're both quad rails, I heard the Ocz is 18 amps on the 12v rails and also that its 16 amps... I know the Zalman is 16 amps on each 12v rails.

Thanks for the responce, just wanted to make sure it was a good psu.

I like quiet, hopfully they just send he the psu and charge me no extra since I am a paypal e-check user... I get it airmailed for free anyway, so as long as its here with the rest of my system I dont mind. :D

Psu is the loudest part of most systems I think, well at least on my current system.

I thought about it but its too much more $$$ and I doubt I will need the extra power. The zalman is close to the same price as the Ocz 600, and looks more pimping, just not as stable on 5 and 12v lines.

There a review of them both up there, I already sent in a Ticket asking them to do the exchange for me.

It doesn't matter much if it's Single, Double, Triple, Quad Rails. 4 +12v Rails @ 15A each (60 Total) is the same as a single +12v Rail w/ 60A.

One of the best power supplies out there only has 1 +12v Rail, but it's rated @ 60A.

I'm not trying to say Multi-Railed PSU's are bad, of course not. They're great no doubt, but I'm just trying to say that Just because it's Multi-Railed doesn't mean it's better than Single-Railed.
