You've got four 30A rails for the GPUs to play with on the P1700 - A total of 120A - just a bit more than the minimum recommended. As long as you run one cable to each connector (and don't try to use...

Yes, I have. I've poly-modded plenty of motherboard with them too. I can't tell for sure from the crmaris's photo, but I assumed that the CapXons on...

The interesting part is that Enesol/Matsuki only make polymer caps AFAIK. It seems a bit odd that Corsair would interchange polies and lytics like that, considering that the ESR and capacitance would...

Just nitpicking here, but I'm not a big fan of Apaq solid caps. I have known them to explode on motherboards a couple of times. They are probably not stressed enough on the modular PCB fir it to be a...

I agree that there is room for improvement, but it's not what I would call a real "train wreck". CWT and Seventeam definitely take the cake for sloppy soldering work IMO. I've seen a bad one from FSP...

Pop the cover and check the caps. Since that unit uses low quality chinese parts, it's entirely possible that they are the problem (and yes, I have had the same go wrong with a similar TT...

I wouldn't worry about it unless it's getting really hot to touch. It has Japanese caps and everything, so the heat shouldn't be much of a problem.

It doesn't look great (being the older less efficient half bridge design), but it could be much worse. At least your one looks to have fairly beefy heatsinks and enough output filtering caps (even if...

I'm kind of leaning towards suggesting an Antec, simply because I love Delta (and I only use Delta PSUs in my PCs) and I prefer the multi-rail configuration. However, You can't really go wrong with...

The Aywun is indeed junk. I've load tested the A1-5000. It's a 320W labelled as a 500W. Definitely worse than any of the other options.

As for the VS450 vs TT Smart SE 530, I doubt if there is...

I was gonna say. I wouldn't put either in one of my PCs for longer than 3 years.

You can't get a Seasonic S12II or G series or something like that?

The OCZ ZS 650 never uses Teapos AFAIK. Every one I've seen (both in real life and in reviews) has had all NCC caps. It's definitely a better option than the InWin GreenMe IMO (and the best out of...

The Golden Green may be a decent platform, but the SF ruined it in the HX by using junk Capxon capacitors all over it, so it won't last much longer than 3 years. Then again, your OCZ CoreXstream...

I really would love to see how well some of these units can be cooled with 80mm fans. I've always been of the opinion that straight-through airflow is quieter and more effective than right-angled...

Those two retailers have the Seasonic S12II/M12II 520W and G-550. Both of those would be good options. The SF Golden green would also be good. The CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 550W would a decent...

I would go with the 4670K. Ithe graphics is only very marginally slower, and the CPU is much faster. As soon as you add a GPU, any advantage that the AMD had in terms of graphics performance goes...
