I noticed me 12v rails are dropping to 11.532 and under load im suspecting that its dropping more.. I have an 8350 that I have overclocked to 5.06Ghz.. with 2 460's and a sabertooth.. so i need something with a lot of juice but still within my budget anyone have suggestions I am within the US

Thank you in advance

You're not pulling 800w with this setup. A higher quality, lower wattage unit is better than a POS that can do 1800w.

I tend to stray away from Rosewill because of how many people have watch them explode... or die or just DOA.. its a risk i really can't afford I just upgraded my computer and don't want to have to sit through a series of RMA''s and reimbursments

800w gives me 20%headroom after power draw of 640w I should also add that I am running an XSPC raystorm 240 with 4 fans push/pull and another 5 120mm and 2 80mm fans an SSD and 2 HDD and a Blueray drive

The PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W or Rosewill Fortress. Either of those is way overkill for you and they're both great units.

Since I have never heard of this brand I did a quick google search for reviews. After reading through 5 conclusions quickly, I can say I would turn and run away from anything made by that brand.

I suggest doing your homework before buying.

Going to have to second this. Capstones are high quality units, and it sounds like you're overestimating your power draw by quite a bit, OP.

The only way that system would even get close to "640W" DC would be running Prime+Furmark (not your typical, every day workload), and even then good PSUs are rated for continuous power delivery. You don't have to worry about running them at or near their listed wattage. With a PSU more tailored to your average workload you'll see much better efficiency.

Check this thread out for reference: http://www.overclock.net/t/1126863/real-world-power-usage-user-submitted-values

There are plenty of good choices that will meet your needs.
Toms' had an article identifying who is making which psu's - I'd check it out.
