That's a solid unit, but it's inferior to the Lazer Gold and the Antec HCP already suggested... pick the HCP, it's an excellent unit and a brilliant deal at 115$.

Agree to disagree, i understand what you're saying, an i think i'm trying to say the same thing, just not coming across as so. rolleyes.gif Basically, just don't get a no named brand that you know nothing about because the likelihood of that unit being solid is questionnable.

that reivew on the Kingwin you posted a bit ago was the wrong model.

this is the one i am looking at:
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=168

the only area it scores low in is the value because it thinks its $192.05, however its $149.99 on Newegg, thus making it a very good value and deal! Plus I have the Corsair 600T case and the white LED's will look PIMP. tongue.gif

You're not listening... Lazer and Lazer Gold are two different product lines, the Lazer 1000W unit you picked is an average PSU, the Lazer Gold 850W which I suggested is a high end part.
Don't go with the Lazer 1000W, the Lazer Gold 850W is still a better 1KW PSU than the Lazer you intend to buy wink.gif

ps. for the last time, buy the HCP 850W on ncix, you can't get better value from a similar unit at the moment.

I'm sure you could rig up some white LEDs yourself if need be; don't get the Lazer 1000W when the alternatives are considerably better.

First off: that HCP is on back order... l0l
Secondly: can you help me understand what the differences are between the 850 Gold and the 1000 normal?

Both the Lazer 1000W and the Lazer Gold 850W are made by the same OEM which is Super Flower, the latter unit uses a high end Gold platform called Golden Green while the former uses a lower end(mainstream) platform called Amazon/Crystal Plus(modular/non modular), there are major topology and component difference, the Lazer Gold offering far superior electronics... this translates into better electrical performance(better voltage regulation, better ripple/noise suppression, better transient response and better cross loading performance due to its DC to DC minor rails) also better efficiency which in turn translates into lower heat output, a cooler and quieter working regime, and lastly, superior reliability due to the high quality Japanese capacitors used for the Lazer Gold.

OKOK you convinced me away from the pretty one... biggrin.gif

So here is my next question...
Now that we are around the $150 range, and the 850-1000W range, what is my best option that I can order TODAY thumb.gif

It also needs to be modular, and 80 plus certified rolleyes.gif
