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...

That's true, and I realise that Phaedrus now works for CM, but he's not the kind of guy who would endorse over-rating a PSU in any way, nor can I imagine him lying about his test results when most of...

I think too many here are overlooking one important point - the PSU in question is NOT overrated. It's been proven by Phaedrus that it can, in fact, deliver 550W continuously. The one and only...

They all belong in the garbage. They have no protections at all, and will go kaboom if loaded more than 250W, and will all fail after three or four years because of using cheap caps and fans. I've...

Oh "Deer". And here I was thinking that CM was really getting their act together and doing away with all the over-rating.

EDIT: Those caps are NOT 12KJ. They are Yang Chun. 12KJ's logo is an S...

We can't do that kind of thing in this country (Firearms are illegal here). My weapon of choice when I feel like destroying an junk PSU is the good old sledge hammer.

I won't touch a CX unless I plan to recap it, or to repair an older PC which I expect to be retired within 3 years anyway.

Ah, I forgot about the extra freight cost. Go with the TPC 450, then. It's just a non-modular version of the Seasonic G-450.
