Peace.
I would love to see his "threat".

According to the ToS we are expected to post factual information.

Phaedrus may be ranting but he is doing it in a constructive manner. You appear to just be upset at his status here and how he is expressing himself.

Amazing how many people posted in here and don't have a clue about what the point Phaedrus was trying to make. Many of them don't seem to have an ounce of common sense either. But that's something that anonymity brings out in all too many people.

Get a grip people. He might not have stated it perfectly, but he makes a very valid point, something that very few of the people replying can claim.

I've skimmed this briefly, but I would rather recommend someone a overkill high quality PSU than a so-so PSU that would fill their requirements.

But that is a big "if" considering it isn't that hard to find a quality PSU that will meet your needs as long as you know what you are looking for.

Not trying to start an argument here, but out of courtesy I will respond to a few points.
  • To a degree, I happen to agree with the OP, just not with how the topic was presented. Many people do chime in with PSU recommendations without considering what the user is actually doing with the system.
  • Any reasonable person can see that there was nothing remotely uncivil in my post. I stated that "it may not be a constructive use of his time".
  • The statement "stop doing so-and-so" implies a consequence. The OP may not have meant this, but that is the way he seems to have presented his argument.
  • Due to the fact that the first sentence of the thread starts with, "Knock it off.." it is difficult to approach this as a discussion as the very first post seems hostile to differing views.
  • Though the TOS states that factual information is to be used, there is nothing in the TOS that states which interpretations of the facts are allowed, nor is there an indication that opinions are not allowed.
  • Finally, this thread is supposed to be about power supplies, which the statement quoted above does not mention.

Peace.

I understand why you feel this way, but for a gaming rig I will always recommend at least a 550w PSU. ;]

Whenever I buy a PSU for myself, I always get way too many watts purposely since I know my current rig won't last due to my habit of constantly changing hardware. One day I'm using an HD5750, and next week I decide GTX 470 SLI benchmarks would be nice to see. lol

Sometimes I forget people aren't me an overate how much wattage they really need, but I refuse to apologize for it!

It was just an overglorified acknowledgement to the fact that you really do know what you're talking about. I apologize if that annoyed you even though it wasn't meant to do so.

Do they make good quality modular psu's less than 650W? Regardless of power needs a modular psu is a prerequisite for me personally...
post #170 of 286
At first, I was under the impression op was just on a rant, maybe a guru who thinks he's full of himself and now wants to dictate his voice to others. Then I read the interpretation from another member and it made sense.

Pheadrus, maybe it was the way you presented your argument in the op that has gotten people in a bunch. I get it now, but it took some head-scratching to realize are you blasting people or trying help them?

My respects to you and your skills,
