    Has anyone used or owned one of the PSUs I mentioned in the title?

    I'm looking at possibly buying one as I'm wanting to buy a modular PSU.

    Olympia has a smaller housing and is more efficient than the Decathalon thats about all I know of Silverstone Power Supplies.

    Silverstone is a very good quality power supply. While I haven't heard much about that particular one, I am sure that it will be good quality.

    Silverstones are great! I have the 350w Strider in my HTPC.

    The thing which interested me was the 54a on the +12V rail.
    Produces plenty of juice.

    My current PSU supplies 18a +12V on each rail.

    I am getting a DA750 in about three days if you want to wait to see my impressions of it.

    I do admit that it is not very efficient, though.

    Thanks, I'll wait for your opinion.
    I'm not worried about the efficiency of the PSU just the relaibility to give a sustained current.
