    Changed Thermaltake from 3 year warranty to 5 per TT Tech (blame him if it's wrong.)

    Taking another look, how did Etasis get put above Seasonic? Are they that much better?

    In the way they're built, the quality of components, et al? Yes.

    You have to realize that a "server grade" PSU is actually a "grade" of PSU that's built to a higher standard than your typical workstation unit.

    Jonny, in which tier would you place the OCZ Powerstream 520? I imagine that, being one of Topower's better models, it would be a middle-low Tier 2, while most Topower on Tier 3.

    You'll note that there are no Topowers... even on Tier 3.

    Ok.... to be fair I should probably at least put a couple of the better Topowers on Tier 3 this weekend, and that includes the Powerstream 520W. But do realize, compared to the other PSU's on the list, even the Powerstream 520W does not have the power on the 12V rail, the efficiency, the voltage regulation and construction of most of the PSU's on the list.

    It was a VERY GOOD power supply for it's time, but there's a reason OCZ dosn't use Topower anymore.

    Jon, somehow, the Tagan branded Topowers seem to out do the others. Does this have something to do with European v/s US (UL) standards. I've noticed that the European standards are more elaborate and rigid. Last night, I was glancing through the UL and EU transient supression standards and boy, do they lay emphasis on the X/Y caps or what!

    Not so sure about that. I did an Easycon 530W review and that one didn't do too well either.

    "Didn't do too well"

    Garbage unit would be more appropriate. Is there a coincidence between crap units and this bogus rail combination scheme? Just a thought.
