    The 700W model came within 0.07% of getting a silver award too. Still pretty impressive.

    One of these, maybe...?

    http://80plus.org/manu/psu/documents/NXPSemiconductors_ReferenceDesign_270W_80PLUS_Report.pdf

    It's the only PSU to get an 80-plus silver award.

    How does the Xigmatek perform in terms of regulation, ripple, etc.? Is it the same OEM device as any better-known PSUs?

    Well, that's a pretty sorry showing. No gold awards, and just one silver award out of 463 (and that's for a PSU rated at only 270 Watts).

    It's really too bad about the high ripple on the 5V rail and the so-high-it's-only-barely-within-spec ripple on the 3.3V rail; if it wasn't for those, this would be just about perfect.

  8. Is the 850W CoolerMaster RealPower Pro comparable to the 1000W one?

    The 1000W RealPower Pro got quite a good review from Jonny & co. a while back - it couldn't quite sustain 1000W output for a long time, but it was very quiet, very efficient, had good voltage...

    How does it compare with the P182 for noise suppression? (I mean vibration/acoustic noise, not electrical).

    Jonny puts the 750W Toughpower in Tier 4; it's a definite step down in performance and build quality compared with the 1000 and 1200W Toughpowers (which are in tier 2). But still not a bad unit.
