    What's the best in your opinion? My vote goes to Seasonic, quiet and very reliable.

    Personally, I'd have to say that SilverStone makes darn near the best of anything that they produce. They are the only manufacturer of fully modular power supplies that run off of a single +12v rail. I'm currently using their ZM1200M (1200W, modular, 95A on the single +12v rail)PSU, and I couldn't be happier.

    Silverstone without a doubt! I have been running their OP1200 since it was released, and have never had a single problem. Stay tuned for out Silverstone Strider 1500w review. 110 amps

    So it seems that PC P&C is the winner so far along with Silverstone, oh and as a side note Seasonic produces fully modular supplies. And Hiper is pretty big in Europe, too bad they haven't made much of a dent here in America

    It is the other way with silverstone...Big in the states hard to find in europe.

    I'd have bought one by now if I'd found a (decent) local supplier

    Just did a bit of research and I found out Antec and Corsair are just rebadged Seasonics. Sorry if I'm a bit of a fanboy with these power supplies

    That sounds a bit of a broad statement....some maybe..and I've heard good things about seasonic...but if the antec TPQ 850 is one of theirs I hope it is an exception cos I'm on my third one (rma's).

    That said ...the signature series is said to be excellent

    I've heard great things about there signature series, even though it only goes to 850W, but in reality who really needs a 1.2KW psu?

    The power efficiency graph at... http://www.80plus.org/manu/psu/psu_r...00W_Report.pdf is one reason you might consider a BIG PSU. This one as an example shows the difference is not massive but inefficiencies also produce more heat.

    80plus is a good site to look for test info to go with some of the reviews you see published.
