Default PSU Recommendations for High End Gaming PC's

This list hasn't been maintained in six months. It's time for this thread to die.

jon,
I have 400 & 460W Zippys and with fan thermal control they are no louder than the old Fortrons with "noise killer" control on thier 80mm fans. It is true that Zippy units can be bought with NO fan thermal control.

True, but like the FSP's with "noise killer" they're not really high end gaming power supplies.

They get their own thread.

Jonny,
Noob here and new to the forum. Awesome list, just like the super PSU reviews you do.

Any chance the recommendations could be sorted by price, i.e. best PSU between US$100 - US$125; US$126 - US$150;... etc....

I am looking for a good SLI-ready PSU under $176.

Again thanks and keep up the great work!

Instead of going further down tiers, I plan to create multiple lists for different uses and price.

This is just the lst for high end gaming PC's.

Sweet! I'll definitely be looking forward to that.

Dunno what I would have done (prolly ) if I have not found your site.
