    Enermax Galaxy DXX 850 and 1000W, are they considered to be Tier 2 like the original Galaxy PSUs? From what i understand there is no significant difference between them, except for the fact that the DXX have the 2 8 pin PCI-E connectors, is that right?

    At least the unit I tested had better ripple/noise than previous units.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I still don't see them as the build quality of Turbo-Cool, Zippy and Etasis (tier 1.)

    If I break the Enermax Galaxy into tier 1, there's a few others of similar build quality that would have to go with it.

    Jonny, do you know if the XClio Stablepower 500W is the same as the Enhance ENP-5150GH? To my eye it looks the same, but I wanted to get your insight.

    I have no idea without seeing a picture of the inside of the Xclio.

    The output specs are different and there's no 80+ certification. Looks more like a rebadged 5150G.

    Jonny, would you mind adding corresponding JonnyGuru review links to each PSU on the list (if they exist)? If you want, I can do the work and then PM you the text to copy and paste... and I'll also correct your spelling errors/typos

    Just a quick question to Guru...

    You have the Olympia 650w, 750w, and the Decathlon 750w on your Tier 2 list...

    Any opinion on the Decathlon 650w, which has no reviews to be found anywhere on the entire internet it seems?

    Personally, I'd guess it to be essentially the same as the OP and DA you've already reviewed (and listed on your chart), and within the same bracket on your charts, but I thought I'd ask anyways. (Looks to be a modular OP650 or a lower wattage DA750)

    That's what it is... I imagine his opinion of it would be the same as the OP650.

    Just have to bring this up...

    Under tier two of the first post

    "Silverstone Olympia OP650, 750 and Decathalon DA650, DA750 & DA850

    * Design by Impervio Electronics Co.
    * Built in Taiwan
    * Quit and efficient"

    Ok... now that I'm officially an idiot for pointing out spelling errors I'll finish this post and return to obsessing over what power supply I want to power the sig below, 11 fans, 2 CCFL's, future water cooling setup...and that has 8-pin pci-e, nice black cables like the Ultra X3 or Corsair and is under 230$ U.S.....thanks

    P.S. Forgive me for finding some humor in the possibility that you could not bring yourself to fully spell "quite" when it comes to those units
