@ Mootsfox: Jonny didn't just review one GameXstream, and one FSP... He reviewed many, and they ALL had the same ripple issue.
I understand that he has a problem with the ripple issue. I've just never heard of someone having a problem with an FSP or OCZ(the ones made by FSP) PSU. You shouldn't rule out an entire company line of PSUs because one reviewer didn't like it.

Oh no, I'm not ruling either OCZ or FSP out. Just those series atm. And my list is ever-updating, so I will add new ones from ANY company, as long as they're proven to be reliable under extreme circumstances.

The Ultra X3 1000W should definitely be on that list for the +$300 as soon as it comes out on Newegg.

Why does it have to be on NEwegg? There are other sellers

If you are using jonnyguru as a guide, then why not include his full recommended list? GamerXStream is on there.

I would throw PSUs reviewed the following as well since they also use proper PSU testing methodology:
www.hardocp.com
www.silentpcreview.com
www.planet3dnow.de (German)

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

I agree with duckie. Maybe it would be a good idea to address the strengths and weaknesses of each PSU based on multiple reviews. Jonny is good, but he isn't the only one.

The tagan's aren't really that good.. I believe most are build by Topower, which isn't the best of OEMs

Don't worry guys, I have yet to add many more PSU's, not only from JonnyGuru, but from other reputable testers.

And Thanks to Xavier1421 for making this a Sticky !
