    The PSUs in my house are all Delta-built. I have a Delta DPS-750CB in my main rig, My parents PC has a re-capped lower end Delta* (a GPS-300AB IIRC), and My brother's PC has a re-capped Antec EA-500D (Delta OEM)

    *The story behind the PSU is quite amazing. I originally aquired it after the fan failed and the PSU had all but destroyed itself, taking the motherboard in the customer's PC with it. I re-capped it, replaced the fan, the wires and the 3.3v toroid coil, and it works fine now. It does 320W well and truly in spec.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Main PC: Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz, Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600, 240GB Intel 335 Series SSD, 750GB WD HDD, Sony Optiarc DVD RW, Palit nVidia GTX660 Ti, CoolerMaster N200 Case, Delta DPS-600MB 600W PSU, Hauppauge TV Tuner, Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I test Corsair Link a lot. So I use an AX860i and probably won't change that out any time soon.

    My wife's PC just had a fanless Enhance unit die on her. Replaced it with a CX430. Ironically, I obtained the CX430 PRIOR to working for Corsair.

    My daughter's PC..... I have no freakin' idea.

    I still have a number of PSUs lying around. I really need to sell some of this shit off.
