Find a professional review anywhere that had a bad experience with the Seasonic and i'll believe it. Until then, Newegg "reviews" have about as much validity as Bill Clinton. I'd be willing to bet that 1/2 of the reviews on there are from people that have never even seen a Seasonic nor used one.

What do you guys think of this setup for overclocking my Sempron 2800+ with Biostar TForce 6100 754 board?? Any suggestions are definitely a big help, but keep in mind this price range is currently out of my budget as is

I think you're going overboard on the power supply. Having a nice one is very important, but you're overkilling your needs. Get this one and put the extra savings into a different upgrade or save it for your next system. It will more than handle your machine and anything you add to it.

That's an extremely well built power supply and is a very good buy under $100. There are several members here running it and I have yet to see a single negative remark. It can prove to be hard to find in stock though, so be patient. It sells out frequently.

Theres alot of good psu companies, alot of which are cheaper than what he's looking at and would be plenty fine....I personally like to get the best quality power for the cheapest cash....I would say fortron and tagan are my favorites...I wouldn't buy the PSU we have been talking about because it's overkill and the difference isn't really worth the extra cash..

I've had really good experience with Fortron also. Btw, I think they're actually made by Zippy.

The Zalman CPNS9500 is a good heat pipe cooler as well


OCZ doesn't make either of those
