they suck and they are overrated out the ass for their cost and I hear they fail spectacularly when they do fail. Taking out lots of hardware
also something was jacked up about the i series for extreme OC.
its been a while since I looked into them though. but they are definitely not as good as the antec. and I doubt as good as the x2 supernovas
I forget the exact thing, one of the asian pros had found a problem with the i series IIRC, though.
but as I said this was a year or 2 + when I was looking at PSUs.
I got 3x g2 1300 supernovas back then @ 150 a pop and havent had an issue so never needed to get another psu since
also from they way I have seen them treat people who RMA their premier ram kits I wouldn't give them a dime.
or just the way they sell their ram kits at all makes me steer clear.
I know a few people other than me who went in and got the orange c16 3400 dom plats(1000$ a kit MSRP) and they were either previously opened or they were just thrown inside the OEM box with little regard for their safety.
I had a stick that was just jammed into the tray.; it wasn't even in the slot. the sku sticker on it was messed up(I wouldn't have been able to rma it. I sent it right back to where I bought it)
for PSU questions talk to shilka or twocables

They may be overrated and a lot of people are annoyed at how often the name is thrown out, but they definitely do not suck. Especially if you get one of their higher-end units.

If you want a big PSU, I'd recommend the EVGA 1600P2 or 1600T2 or the Corsair AX1500i.
They're pricey, though! I have an older AX1200 and it works pretty well for my needs... though I may be looking to RMA it in the near future. The 5V line is drooping badly.

Quote:Picked up a new RVE... how fun! The chip is a j batch. Now I see that my power supply can't keep up with the voltage. Currently using 850 watt Thermaltake. Did 5630 mhz on 8 cores but think found the bottle neck of the 850w PSU and wasn't able to go much further. OCC chilled like a king though. [URL=http://hwbot.org/submission/3135682_[/URL] We'll pick up a 1300-1500w PSU in a week (any suggestions?) and really see what this chip can do. But we should have some good OCC chilled results up from our colleagues before then! . . .
