    And why do you think that we asked you to make a picture of the PSU?! Do you think we are idiots?! Sorry but as -The_Mask- stated, this is THE Place to ask about PC-PSUs. There are people around here that really know their stuff. So why is it so hard to listen to those people?!


    As for the exploding units: Have you taken a look at how old those PSUs were?! How long they were used?! FYI: PSUs don't last forever!
    Depending on the model and usage, some only last about as long as the warranty lasts, others about 5 years...

    Yes but we did!
    And have you seen one in this thread that didn't say that 550W is (more than) enough for your rig? Why do you think we did that?! Because it's the truth!!

    And that's still no reason to waste our time, ignoring all our recomendations and buying something else...

    And you totally ignored our opinion, that's why we are a little angry at you for wasting our time...

    Than you should listen to those things the people in this thread are trying to say and not totally ignore them...

    If you want a big PSU you go some place where no one has a clue about Power Supplys, not here...
    You come here to ask people who know about PSUs, some even repair them regulary...

    oh dear...
    Why bother with you at all. You'll just ignore us...

    And a 1000W High Power is everything but NOT the best option for you. Well if you wanted 4 GPUs, you may think about it, but with one on the lower end side?!

    Oh well, not even 400W with a Power Virus, or Battlefield 3...
