ive heard great deals of positive feedback for both of these power supplies, i personally like the mge xg magnum but i might switch to SLI in the future, im going to be running a whole OC'ed system and need the wattage, and the cooling(for the rest of my system, which the mge xg magnum doesnt have). but i also like the LCD display the magnum has, and the nice sleeving, both are about equevelant in looks, and dependancy(i think). so what should i get?

P.S. i have the magnum un-opened, i could return to get the hiper type-r

I like the Hyper Type-R is looks good and has a 38A 12v rail.

I can tell you from my own personnel use DO NOT get the MGE psu I had one fry a brand new MoBo when it blew up........both only a week old.

Yeah it will glow with the right lighting.
I bought a UV orange sleeving kit and did it myself on my PSU.

how would i go about removing the molex's and putting new sleeving on it? and it seems like such a waist to mess up the perfect hiper type-r sleeving

I've heard some decent things about the xg but it just isn't powerful enough for my liking. get a seasonic and you'll never look back
