I guess it's possible. It bears a lot in common with this (http://hardwareinsights.com/wp/dell-h305p-01-power-supply-review/3/), though. Especially when you look at the solder side. I'm pretty...

If this (http://hardwareinsights.com/wp/dell-h750p-00-review/3/) can't be classed as a server unit, I don't know what can.

They can be OK, but I've seen some pretty horrendous blunders from them before. My first Thermaltake Evo Blue 2.0 750W had a ~5mm long component pin which was bent over and shorting on another...

Nice. I'm kinda glad you didn't go with an LG monitor. I have a 24" LED one (I can't remember the model off the top of my head), for the PC which drives my oscilloscope and webcam for reviews. It's...

Yeah, I noticed that. The 80plus report even says that the rated input is 230V.

I totally agree on the rating. If Aywun had just knocked 50W off the rating, and added another PCI-E connector,...

Ouch! Yeah, 3 or 4 connectors really should be used there. I can see those connectors melting after a year of regular gaming, although the VRM might just cook itself by that time as well. 103*C is...

Your VX550 will be fine. A good 550W PSU will handle any single-GPU setup you can throw at it with no problems at all.

Sure looks like a CWT. The green tape and bad soldering more or less give it away.

The Silverstone Strider Gold Series are about as short as PSUs get at higher wattages, but the Seasonic G-series are fairly compact too.

I wouldn't expect that from an Enermax-built PSU, but I would totally expect those sorts of slip-ups from CWT.

Fair enough. I can tell you that a 760 will run quite happily on 450W, but if you want to upgrade, then I would recommend the Seasonic G-650.

A Seasonic G-550 would be my recommendation. 550W will cover any single-GPU setup.

The bit about killing the board is wrong too (unless you have a really cheap and nasty power supply). The worst...

The Logisys doesn't even fit that definition. Basically, that unit should not under any circumstances be purchased, should or used.

The first rig should be faster, but don't use the bundled PSU. It's probably just a 250W unit with a 420W sticker (assuming it's a cheap generic case, that is. The links don't work in the first post)

That rosewill is not modular.

I'd suggest a Seasonic G-450. It is small enough to fit, semi modular (only the ATX and EPS12V connectors are hardwired), and well made.
