Ok, I went with the SeaSonic S12-600 but we aren't ordering for like 2 week so keep voting and try to persuade me if you think another PSU was a better choice.

I must be deaf... or maybe it's all the deltas I have running that drown out the PSU fans.

EDIT/// screw it, it's only $30 more, consider the SeaSonic S12-500 off of my list, if you were voting for that, please vote for the S12-600 instead.
dude the Antec TPII 550W got 19 amps on BOTH DUAL RAIL, meaning 19a on 12v1 and 19a on 12v2

38 total amps while the 600 Sunbeam got 36 amps and it cost ALOT more

Be careful about comparing specs on different brands. They use different criteria. Some give peak values, some give values only attainable at 5 degrees Celsius. It's a good way to compare power supplies made by the same manufacturer, but gets "muddy" when comparing different brands. It's just like stereo amplifiers. Which would you bet on....a 80 watt Krell amplifier or a 3,000 watt amplifier from the swap meet that can fit in your hand?

i know that, but don't tell me Antec is NOT a good company, I mean we all have to agree that Antec is consider one of the top 5 PSU maker in the world when it comes to PSU.

They're good, but I wouldn't put them in the top 5.

I have the S12 500W and its really quiet and the rails don't budge so I'd say all round go for the s12 600W, but I've had a NeoHe 500W and it wsa even quieter (I actually didn't know it was on until I put my hand behind it and felt the air. The Neohe is also modular and has triple 12v rails but I had a complatibility issue (didn't work at all in my system so I replaced it with an s12 and have happy ever since) if you know that it will work with your motherboard and don't care for over all quality and performance (pretty low 3.3V rail and 5V compared to the s12 but for quiet, you can't even here the Neohe 500

The antec NEO 500 HE is very quiet and also very strong. I tried the 550 out and it was strong and stable. And it was very quiet. The phantom would be silent, but not as strong as the neo HE
