    I have a Thermaltake Silent PurePower 410w that is very similar to this power supply, I'm worried my voltages might be unstable like that. Should I consider getting a different PSU with my overclock? If so, what should I consider? I know PC Power & Cooling is the best of the best, but I don't know if I can afford that.

    W1zz ... I just bought one before the review ... but after installing it I've been able to adjust the fan speed up and down unlike your test model ... using a meter I get a solid 12.34v from the molex...

    6 80mm fans
    4 SATA HDs
    1 120mm fan
    AGP XT800XT PE VGPU@1.68v
    2@512 OCZ PC4000 at 3.2v
    1 DVD R/W
    1 CDRW
    3.2e @ 4.00
    P4P800E

    Unlike the test model my Watts viewer displays the wattage at half of the total... so 250 on the display is 500 .... I see in your review it displays 480 ... but its a 500w :confused:
