Default Andyson MT8 AD-M800A2, Corsair TX750 or Thermaltake Toughpower 750W?

I might be purchasing a new PSU to replace my current Epsilon 600W, and these 3 fall in the same price range, the Andyson MT8 AD-M800A2, Corsair TX750 or the Thermaltake Toughpower 750W.

Which one's the best?

Pretty sure that Andyson unit is the platform used for the BFG ES-800. Capacitors even look the same....so I would guess the Andyson is probably the better unit.

The MT8 is the ES-800. It would be the best of the three.

Just got and installed the Andyson 800W. Right off the bat it's quieter than the Epsilon, perhaps because the Epsilon was running closer to its limit. I also noticed that one of my USB portable HDD that could never spin up properly with the old FSP, now does so perfectly without having to use the AC adapter...

Just a quick question on rail distribution. Does it matter which rails I load on this PSU or is it internally just 1 big rail? Of all the modular connectors, I have at least 4 molex connectors used and 1 SATA connector used. The modular connectors seem to be interchangeable so I'm not sure which rail I'm loading either.

Thanks.

You don't worry about it. Andyson distributed certain connectors over certain rails. You don't change that by plugging in different things in different places.
