Please enlighten me then. So it doesn't have JG review, who cares?
JG doesn't test long-term reliability, which newegg ratings are much more indicative of.

Newegg reviews by actual owners are a much better indicator of long term reliability than jonnyguru and HWS. So there are numerous reviews (actual owners) of the Corsair that say the same thing.

@LordOfTots I do agree that there's no better feeling than putting in a new graphics card and firing up the first game on it.
@Shilka I don't want to put any of my current hardware in danger with a "timebomb" psu though :/ I would be devastated if I bought that new graphics card and then my psu fries it x(
Say you get a $200 HD 7850, it actually uses less
power than your current video card which seems to be fine on your PSU.Edited by I8THEBONES - 6/21/13 at 6:38pm
