    Agreed - 80% is still not average for most of the units out there.

    Is the average efficiency of high power supplies better, over all, than lower power supplies? I mean of the quality units that is...

    since when has high efficiency been equated with high quality and workmanship??

    I am not being pita here....but I think some people are delusional to believe 100% that in order to have high efficiency that quality and workmanship all have to be present...thats just not the case..

    I would rather have a 70% efficient PSU that 5 years from now would still be humming right along rather than have a 85% efficient PSU that 6 months or a year down the line will need to be RMA`d...

    But hey thats just me..

    I have to agree JY. That's why I added a tier to my CPU list and put the Toughpower 1000W and 1200W in there. I just can't justify putting it with the "known performers" of PCP&C T-C, Etasis and Zippy. Yes, it's a CWT which is typically decent when not filled with Fuhjyyu caps and yes it has Teapo caps which is the same thing the Turbo-Cool and other high end PSU's use, but it's not really PROVEN. Before 2007, the biggest thing CWT had out there was a 850. Before 2006 it was a 480W. I can't believe that they'd pop out "the perfect 1200W" on such short notice.

    I wouldn't be too shocked if CWT was one of very few companies that could pull it off given how well engineered their units have been in the past, but I too want to wait and see how they hold up over the long haul

    The unit I had did not have Teapo's they were Nippon Chemicon.

    Well, that's normal. New products get "campaigns." They queue up review samples, spam a bunch of review sites and send product out to whoever responds.
