    I should break them up. I'll do that today.

    Jonny,

    How's the new Enhance built Coolermaster Realpower 1000w? It looks good enough to make the list, doesn't it?

    You're right too.

    I've added both Enhance built Antec TruePower Quattro and Cooler Master Real Power Pro 1000W to tier 3.

    They didn't make tier 2 because the Antec has poor regulation at low loads and the Cooler Master didn't quite hold up at full load. That and the over all quality of construction of an Enhance isn't bad, but it's not "server grade."

    Could somebody help me understand the Enermax Galaxy's ranking? The actual review took away its "recommended" rating because of some ripple problem but its still very high on this list. At least the 1000watt lost its recommendation. The review of the 850 watt was not all that glowing either. So is it a tier 2 solution still?

    I'm trying to find a modular 1000 watt plus power supply and my first choice would be sticking with enermax as I've used a 430 watt enermax for 6 years without problem. However, i'm open to new options.

    Thanks in advance.

    Jonny, would the 850W version of the CoolerMaster RealPower Pro also be in tier 3, or is it a different underlying model from the 1000W version?

    Jonny, you have the Coolmax Green Power psus in tier 3, but the 500W and 700W models tested by OW both performed poorly. I guess the OEM is different from the higher wattage Green Powers, but you probably want to indicate that so somebody doesn't get one of these two thinking its a decent PSU.

    I've been looking at the Ultra X3 too. It's rated to put out it's stated power at 50C (good sign), has a big 130mm fan (quiet, I assume) and seems to be pretty beefy. Lifetime warranty with registration is a big bonus.

    I've got an Antec TPII-550 that's developed a nice coil/choke whine and don't want to deal with RMAing for fear of getting a refurb unit.

    Would be nice if Jonny had a thorough, test review of it though.

    Jonny: What do you think of the Ultra X3? Anything better in the same price range?

    Where would the Corsair TX750W fit in?

    And how about the Seasonic X900?
