I think some of the FSP/OCZ models should be up there. I know that johnny writes them off for having too much "ripple" around the 12v line, but I have yet to have hear of a problem with a FSP or OCZ PSU.

I generally refer to the lists on Jonnyguru's forum... the high-end list, and the sub-$150 list.

I know, I read that review, and just thought that compared to all these other models, they shouldn't be on the list. At least until the ripple issue is resolved.

I wouldn't recommend a PSU in the condition to anyone.

Same thing goes for the Antec TruePower line. I can tell you from first hand experience that I've had one die on me, and the review on JonnyGuru tells a similar story. Hence, I didn't include them.

Might want to add the FSP Saga 450W in the sub $100 PSUs.

I like HEC's 585w PSUs for the nonexistant sub-$50 range.

HEC's PSUs used to be sold under many popular and reliable names.

They could be great PSU's, but I need to see them in action. As I mentioned, there are other great PSU's out there that aren't included in the list.

As I don't review them personally, I'm just recommending what is proven to be 100% reliable. Specifically the reviews from JonnyGuru. Don't feel bad if your PSU isn't included.

Basing your info solely on one source can have it's flauts too. If you just want to repost what Johnny's site says, then fine, post a link to it. I think it would be better to have the list open to OCN member recommendion so it can grow and be more valuable than the one list from Johnny.

Only one PSU in the sub-100 range? That's what everybody wants to know about. Fill that section out, keep this updated, and STICKY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know, I'm still working on that section. Thanks !

@ Mootsfox: Jonny didn't just review one GameXstream, and one FSP... He reviewed many, and they ALL had the same ripple issue.

If I post up what EVERY member recommends, the list will be full of Hipers, Aspires, CoolerMasters, you name it. There are still many PSU's I have yet to add, including some Ultra ones, and Thermaltakes.
