Been there & done that & am still doing that!
Making them is easy, keeping them updated is impossible!

Please anyone who wants to help update these, please do so, it will be greatly appreciated!

This is a work in progress & it will never be finished (10-25-04).

Quote:
These quality brands are highly recommended,
however not every power supply they offer will meet your needs,
[b]be especially careful to make sure that the +12V rail(s) offer a
Minimum of +12V@26A for Single Video Card Systems & +12V@34A for Dual Video Card (SLI/Crossfire) Systems.

Class 1: These are the Best:

PC Power & Cooling (All Turbo Cool & ULTRA-QUIET SILENCER 610W & 750W),
Seasonic (S-12, S-12E+, M-12),
Silverstone (Zeus models ST56ZF, ST75ZF, and ST85ZF),
Etasis &
Zippy.

Class 2:

Antec,
Enermax,
Enhance,
Fortron,
I-Star,
OCZ Technology,
PC Power & Cooling,
Seasonic,
Silverstone,
Sparkle,
Tagan,
Vantec &
XCilo.

Class 3:

Hiper (Type R) &
Sunbeam.


Seasonic has announced the release of their new M12 series, these will be available up to 750W.

Links to all of these fine manufactures websites & reviews are provided at the end.
Please anyone who wants to help update these, please do so, it will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Dave

Dave, My recommendations:

Modular psu guide: Ditch the Modstream and the Neo 480, and add in: NeoHE series, Silverstone Strider ST75

Bang-for-buck guide: I'd swap the Xclio for the Sytrin Masscool Nextherm 460. A bit more power, sleeved cables, and only a few bucks more. Not to mention seventeam

Just suggestions.

Yea, the modular PSU Guide has not been updated in over a year.

Keep the XCilo GoodPower 500W as they are working fine.

Half of the new egg reviews report DOA on that Masscool, WTF? lol

Thanks,
Dave

EDIT:

Feel free to copy/paste & then add/subtract,
it would be real nice if we had almost universal agreement on these guides!

I may come up with my own list. Not sure, but I want it to be known that I don't agree 100% with Dave's list either.

So for now, let it be known that Dave's list is DAVE'S LIST.

Like Dave said, it would be nice if we could all agree on a "universal guide," and if we don't agree on something, we just leave it off.

I think we could come up with a universal guide also. Maybe something like rankings on how a PSU stacks up in quality, then sub organized by wattage (or rated wattage).

YOUR list has some misplaced units david.

There is nothing that special about OCZ units and the Antec Neo, TP & SP units are loaded with Fujyyu craps. Fully 80% of the power related problems posted over at Anand's are with these Antec models. *shakes head*

Agree 100%. Topower units should not be in anywhere in the top zone. Just to reinforce what you said Galvo, the guy I play International conflic (Joint Ops) with had his Antec blow up on him last week. I'm amazed Antec are still putting out such crap instead of stopping the product line.
