CWT make the Phantom 500, SmartPowers, original TruePowers and the Neopowers.

So none of their newer units are CWT.

All their new units are either SeaSonic (TruePower News), Delta (Signatures and CPs) or Enhance (TruePower Quatros).

OCZ's power supplies aren't very good, save the Z series, and even then, its only real attribute is efficiency; everything else is average.

The FSP Epsilon platform, which is what most of OCZs popular power supplies is based on, isn't very good. At about 550W at 45C, you're going to get voltage ripple barely within ATX Spec. If you try and load it to anywhere near 700W at the same operating temperatures, you'll get Voltage Ripple way out of ATX spec. JonnyGuru recorded 200mV of 12V rail ripple... the max safe is 120mV.

Oh, and nice thread, Phaedrus.

Thanks! I think this might be one of my most repped posts ever.

Made a few more edits.

The Thermaltake Toughpower PSUs are excellent PSUs

But the PurePower or TR2 units are another story.
Thanks for bringing this up. The TR2-430 has been over-recommended for way too many years. Sure, it is probably better than the sheer crap that's found bundled with cases, but nobody should be buying ATX 1.3 PSUs for modern rigs.

Exactly! I'm still running an Enhance ENP-5150GH in my LAN party rig. Got it from Geeks for $15.

Hm, I wonder how one would do powering my Socket A fileserver? I've been looking for a PSU that won't be crossloaded on it.

Thanks man, good resource. HEC and Compucase are one and the same, right? I recall seeing them called HEC/Compucase in the past, and the UL numbers definitely matched Compucase when I checked.

Get an independantly regulated unit?

I did say "modern rigs" in my post.

Yes, HEC/Heroichi/CompuCase. A long time ago I had a... maybe 300W Heriochi? The label claimed they were world famous, LOL.

So, since you seem to be the authority on this:

I got a 750watt toughpower on an impulse snipe bid that ended up under 100 bucks shipped- its apparently been used for testing only but hasn't actually been USED used, and the guy claims its still covered under warranty (although the sticker that says void if removed is not intact, its still there).

Given the OP, I see e303666 is OEM Thermal Take but I don't quite know how to interpret the "quite good usually" for my purposes. Even if performing far under what it claims it will still exceed my power needs, so if my main concern is longevity and reliability am I good to go with this unit or should I try to find something else?

Its a w0203 model which is apparently discontinued - claims 60A over 1 single 12v as opposed to the newer "quad rail" ones (which I understand doesn't matter - just to differentiate the model specifically)
