I was accused of murder, and eventually got a Silverstone. My god, never again. The mistakes I have made. Honestly OP you might not think the PSU is that bad, but believe us when we say this, we are trying to help YOU! Don't kill your lovely i5 and your future 7950...
Edit: I think it was a 750W DiabloTek.... 750W
So you're saying Silverstone are good?
I myself have an 850W Silverstone Strider (Silver), almost got the gold but meh.
I feel that i'm safe running a 3570k OC'd, and two OC'd 7950's with custom/unlocked BIOS' on it too.
I HAD a 750W OCZ Fatal1ty, that red fan.. Other then that it was decent.
I use the 600/750/850W PSU's in everybodys builds since 2010 and as far as I'm aware that's a smart move for price/performance especially when sometimes I don't see the rig for a few months or even a year or more.
While we're on topic, what are the Antec "Bumblebee" PSU's like? By "Bumblebee" I am referring to the Antec TPQ-850 semi-modular PSU.
I know two people with them because the local PC store uses them in most builds.
Currently bitcoin mining with the Silvertone.. Yay or nay?
