pretty good just as good as jonny guru but better funded since they buy a lot of power supplies retail to test which also helps expose the pos units

It's a very reliable site. Just remember that Gabe places a lot of emphasis on "price point" if you're looking at which PSUs have various awards.

Alot easier and reliable.
If I want to throw down I'll get this silverstone for $135 which seems pretty for 80+silver and fully modular, which I really want

but theres a few that are a bit cheaper, and keeping a close eye on sales next week too

Good numbers and methodology, but they don't publish exact vreg numbers and Gabe hands out awards like candy.

the HS review of the seasonic built xfx core edition 750W has even better ripple for clean 6950 CF juice, but its not modular, but its also $20 less

I have a modular right now and its so much tidier and better for air flow, I only use 1 sata cable for HDD and DVD, tough choice

I've had that exact same PSU but I switched it out for an XFX 750w. After reading more about the TR2 units and asking around on ocn about it, I decided on getting a replacement. Although my rig doesn't pull even close to the danger zone for the TR2, I did not want to take the risk when the time came to upgrade.

the XFX 750W PRO750W XXX Edition 80+silver looks good too, its seasonic, semi-modular and cheaper than the silverstone, thats also a top canidate for my price range
