Listen to Phaedrus... He's the genius.

Edit: Whoops, guess my opinion is 5 minutes too late.

but then there is that old theory of, you get what you paided for_ deciding on Power Supplies have never been so frustrating and full of headaches_

Because it's a good unit. Superflower's Golden Green platform is really making splashes and has taken them from being a barely worth mentioning mid-range OEM to a serious contender. It's used in over four lines of products to my knowledge, and is in the same tier (though still a little bit behind) SeaSonic X, SeaSonic M12D, and CWT DSG. Superflower and their partner Kingwin also brought the first retail 80PLUS Platinum unit to market, with the Superflower Golden King platform, and the Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W is probably the best power supply on the market right now.

Oh I've listened =], I purchase one on order last night for my AMD Machine as it was in need of a new Power supply also. I figure I'll give it a go and so once both power supplies come in, I'll have to review them both myself_

Thanks =]

I've finally decided to go with the Seasonic X-850, it might be the same as the AX-850 but after reading reviews and major headache thinking I figure heck why not throw in a few more dollars for the Seasonic(Plus it looks cool) lol_

Welps, its on order and waiting to arrive =]

You paid more for worse cables and warranty?
