does the total amperage equal the sum of each rail or the average?

In most cases: nope. Check the links eternaldj posted of the Rosewills... There are pictures of the labels. Underneath the individual currents of the 12V rail, you'll see a number (in Watts, or Amps, or both) that states the total max load on the 12V rails.

Usually, a PSU that delivers 18A per rail, ends up delivering 30A or so on the 12V rails in total.

Does that mean the Mushkin one is enough? I'd really like to have a modular PSU

If not, I will get the FSP, cheap and a good company.

The Mushkin only delivers 28A... (see picture of label), and in that case, you'd be pushing it a bit when you overclock. Plus, jonnyguru reviewed a Mushkin (other model though), and wasn't very enthusiastic to say it politely.

EDIT: it was actually the SAME model (label on Newegg and on Jonnyguru both state XP-550 as the model number):
http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_details.php?id=31

A 5 for performance? no thank you.


EDIT again.. hmmm.. now I am confused... in the conclusion, Jonnyguru states that the 'XP' versions are much better... the review states that this is a 'HP' version, while the label clearly states 'XP-550'.

I'd take the safe route...

Okay so if you had to choose between these 2, which one would you take?

Looks like the Egg no longer accepts PayPal so I've gone searching for another place. ZZF has the Ultra PSU

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=373047

I heard they weren't any good though, but they are cheap.
