I havent had any issues with them. They are one of the few PSU manufactures that you can actually run the PSU at its max limit for days and not have the PSU die.

see i dont hold any allegiance to any brand really...except for maybe Intel right now...just cause i like SB's =)

thats why i asked you all....i honestlyother than reading reviews on other sites and seeing what the members are using here have no frickin idea what would be considered the best modular psu for under 150$

im really liking the silverstones though...fully modular....but how do they hold up to lets say the X-series from Seasonic?

im also really diggin that X-560...but what kind of long term upgrade will it be able to handle? 6970? 6850 x2? maybe a single gtx 580 if i become rich?

The x-560 has enough power to handle a system with a single 6970, two 6970s, two 6850s, or a single GTX 580.

Strider+750, great stability, low ripple, fully modular. Oklahoma Wolf says it's good and my 850 is great.

The X-560 can handle any single video card on the market, or a pair of 6850s or 6870s. It only has two PCIe connectors though, so any duo of cards with two PCIe connectors each would force you to use Molex-to-PCIe adapters.
For $10 more I'd still recommend the Kingwin LZP-550 over the SeaSonic X-560 personally. It's a better unit almost every way you look at it, except it's not fully modular.

that x560 is nice part of the reasion its so expensive is the 80 plus gold certification. Now as to weather it will push out more power than the 850w coolermaster or silverstone psus I kinda doubt it. For that much id pick up one of the higher rated PSUs. Like shamrock said ive never heard anything bad about silverstone psus and I have used coolermaster ones in the past.

I believe the coolermaster one comes with a 5 year warranty as well so you could keep it and move it between rigs

NZXT Hale 90 750W . should be ~130 ..

Awesome white colour , fully modular except atx 24 pin i think ... Might want to consider that .. + it has 80+ GOLD certification ..

i have a friend with a cooler master 1200 silent gold or something...he loves the thing and praises it over and over again....so ill take that in to consideration

the silverstones look like they are very good and on par with the seasonics...maybe a little below...but im not powering Hubble

speaking of powering Hubble...im thinking maybe 800-850w is a little too much...may just stick in the 650-750 range

ill tell you what my real problem is...i get overly concerned with futureproofing some times esp with items like psu's...so i guess thats why im hesitant on something like the Kingwin 550 or the X-560...even though both get outstanding reviews esp the Kingwin

so as of right now...im really leaning towards the x-560,Both silverstones and the Kingwin 550
