how reliable is 'hardware secrets' on PSU reviews - Page 2

the HS review of the seasonic built xfx core edition 750W has even better ripple for clean 6950 CF juice, but its not modular, but its also $20 less

I have a modular right now and its so much tidier and better for air flow, I only use 1 sata cable for HDD and DVD, tough choice

I've had that exact same PSU but I switched it out for an XFX 750w. After reading more about the TR2 units and asking around on ocn about it, I decided on getting a replacement. Although my rig doesn't pull even close to the danger zone for the TR2, I did not want to take the risk when the time came to upgrade.

the XFX 750W PRO750W XXX Edition 80+silver looks good too, its seasonic, semi-modular and cheaper than the silverstone, thats also a top canidate for my price range
