Yep, it's the EX1000W. But, I think that for the price, the Mushkin is better.

Stupid me for letting pass the 50$ 800W BFG psu deal on geeks That, I think, was a really good offer, only con was the kinda short PCIE cable.

Lol, geeks.com. I bought my first PSU there, the BlueStar 680w. It worked, but it couldn't take a video card. Upgraded to a TX650 from Corsair, and from that, my current Mushkin 1000w(bought for silence, not wattage, as when I go crossfire the fan on it will still be silent unlike the TX650)

dont buy. i'm pretty sure it was psu's fault for 2 of my mobos catching on fire.
though the software voltage shouldn't be trusted much but this was supplying 13.5 v while my antec supplies 12.25 or 12.5 on the 12v
