If not better if the rating for the 5V rail is higher? (sorry, newbie here)

Nothing to be sorry about... what that means is this.. even though the ST 1500 has higher rated minor rails, they're not particularly stable or clean... for example, at 20A on the 5v and 3.3v rails, the HCP regulates better than the ST 1500 wink.gif

Ohh I see

And do you think all my HDDs plus the other things on the 5V Rail will be under 20A?
If so,, Ill consider the HCP, because it makes sense what you say.

How do you know about the stability or cleanness of the 5V rail on the HCP compared to the Silverstone?
Somewhere I can read about online?

Thanks

Well, it all depends on the usage pattern.. I'd say at least 30/35A on the 5v rail... honestly, this type of setup is far better served by server oriented units with massive minor rails... but whatever you pick, the HCP or the ST1500/Toughpower1500 will do well... as for reviews on these units, you can look at JonnyGURU, [H], TPU, etc... but you won't see 30A+ loads on the minor rails in the reviews, these are very atypical load patterns for a home build.
