Are any of those high quality? I read somewhere Xclio was great, but I am hesitant to trust new brands. Thermaltake is a brand I usually like, but I know nothing about the quality of their PSU's. I am willing to go a little over $200, but not more than I have to. I might be willing to compromise on the wattage, but not by much.
There are many good options in the list..
PCP%C Silencer 910 is internally a Seasonic S12D which is an excellent unit, though a non modular unit with such a high output does leave a snake nest inside your case in the form of unused cables.
The Antec CP 1000 is a again a brilliant unit but it comes in a different form factor than than standard ATX and it only fits in a handful of Antec cases.
The X-Clio Stablepower Gold 1000 is also an excellent unit, it's fully modular and internally identical to the Silverstone Strider Gold 1000, it's very well priced too.
The Sparkle Gold Class 1000 is also an excellent unit, it's internally identical to the OCZ ZX 1000.
The Silversone Strider Gold 1000 is also a good buy, so is the Strider Plus 1000.
The Silent Pro Gold 1000 would also make a solid purchase.

In terms of quality and performance any of the above would make very good choices... but your issues might not be power supply related at all wink.gif

See one of my previous posts for the voltages I'm seeing elsewhere.

I would really pursue this overclock problem.Perhaps a call to ASUS with an explaination of what you see,simply to get them involved with at least an opinion.Is there any chance you can fit another power supply in for a test (it does not have to be a 1000W power supply..See if you see this drop with the second power supply. Give the tech service of your current power supply a call and see what they think.Hopefully you are not overlooking a setting in your BIOS that minimizes vdroop.You say others with the same board and cpu do not see this voltage droop,is everyone using the same voltage measuring technique? what is your technique (meaning what software are you taking your report from).Can you up your reported voltage and gain stability?

I disabled CPU Spread Spectrum and PCI-E Spread spectrum, and it didn't help the stability issue. Voltages for the CPU were read from CPU-Z, HWMonitor, AMD Overdrive, and ASUS Ai Suite. All showed the same voltage drop. However, for the other voltages it seems HWMonitor is lowballing the other voltages. They all still show the voltage drop when stability testing an over clock. I was doing a straight multiplier overclock, starting to really think that was the problem. I've never done an overclock this high before, my limit was usually 200-300mhz, and that was on an Sempron 1800+, Athlon 64 X2, and a Athlon II 64 X4. Suprising, the Sempron was the easiest to overclock. went from 1.66ghz to 2.0ghz, rock solid stable. The others were no more than 300mhz. For an 800mhz overclock, I'm still learning. Any tips? I was going for 4.4ghz, using a CPU/PEG frequency of 200, multiplier of 22, and voltage of 1.4v. I bumped the multiplier down to 21, and had a stable (except for eight core) clock of 4.2ghz. Stock is 3.6ghz.

definitely the Xfx 1000w platinum.I have it myself and it is phenomenal, It's perfect for overclocking, it's gorgeous looking and it has the hybrid fan mode which turns the fan of the psu on only when needed (perfect silence). here's an unboxing of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=En0IOML5uAo. Oh and btw great support the tech guy with which I communicated was really helpfull to my answers

its called Vdroop or LLC. Those settings drop the voltage. Disable this and it will work.

I have not seen any settings that look like that in my BIOS.

On an Asus board? I know for sure there is LLC (Load line calibration)
