Awe... I bought the hx850 from newegg instead of the ocz z series from us.ncix. I thought the hx was modular. I would have got the ocz if id known that

I just think it's a little over the top to be playing PSU backseat designer, with regards to heatsink sizes on units that are obviously not low end and scrapping to meet a budget, unless you think you know more than the actual designer. If reliability was impacted that much by having such small heatsinks, why would the warranty be 7 years? Surely they'd spend a little extra to make the heatsinks larger if it were necessary to prevent having significant numbers of RMAs before 6 years is up?
I agree.

As long as the PSU stays sufficiently cooled (which it does) then it really doesn't matter what size the heatsinks are.
