Only brands I would run Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, higher end Antec (their lower end ones suck). That and the older PC Power & Cooling which are essentially Seasonics.
If you want a good overclock a good PSU is a must.
Funny how you guys say a PSU with 60% efficiency is "decent"
, thats utter garbage in my book. Its not without reason that the better PSUs are more expensive. You get what you pay for.
EDIT: Not all OCZ units are bad, but MOST are subpar.

Hardly any modern OCZ units are "subpar". Most of them fall into the good/decent category. There's a couple units in some ranges that tend to have problems, though. The OEM's tend to be a mixed grab-bag.
Most of the SxS, SxSII, MxS, OCZ Z, ZS, and ZT series are at least decent/good/great. You could do a lot worse.
If you want, I could give you some names of OCZ/Rosewill units that are better choices than similarly priced Corsair/Seasonic stuff.Edited by GameBoy - 10/29/11 at 3:35pm
