    And although it failed the cross-load test, it didn't blow-up either! lol

    I guess this means...

    Pump more hot air into the box next time.

    It is. But that's ok. Everyone gets a second chance. You've got to realize, I used to do RMA/RTV for a tier 1. Things blowing up don't surprise me anymore. That's why I get all bent out of shape when people "change horses mid-stream" when they fall victim to an isolated incident. Of course, I do recognize the emotional impact of a failed component.

    By low-end if you mean the Supermicro-PWS 0056, yes I did. Tell me what is "Low end" about this unit? I don't think the FSP units are built nearly as well as this Lite-On. I would not knock a unit down because it has no PCI-E or SATA connectors.

    I suppose everybody who is using a rebadged Etasis or any "Server" unit is a lunatic, eh? As for DFI-Street, it has become more like "Viral Marketing Street" where any opinion from the rigid FUD/viral marketing is frowned upon and treated with utter contempt. I could care less as I've stopped visiting there (this is my personal opinion ONLY).

    I have a lot more to say (none too flattering if I may add), but out of respect for Jonny and the other excellent members here, I'm ceasing this right here and now.

    This is not good news, I jumped the gun and bought a ST75F figuring it would be as good as the ST60F and for a few bucks more(less than $30) the extra power might come in handy when the DX10 video cards come out. I should have waited for the review, hmm, maybe I should just return it?

    Well... let's be fair. I was pushing 750W in a 60C box. It shouldn't have blown up, but I was really pushing it. When the case was open, it handled the load just fine. Of course, temperatures were much lower too.

    I might have said 650W earlier, but it did that with no problem, although the temperature of the exhaust air was 57C.

    ^^^ Hold on man. It could be just a bad off-the-shelf sample Jonny bought. Your's may be perfectly fine. Let us see what caused his sample to blow up?

    Edit*I was referring to LL.
