Default Lukewarm: Tuniq Ripper 1000W $90 @ newegg after MIR.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tuniq%20ripper
Normally I wouldn't even bother with this, but at $90 it isn't that bad of a deal.

It got a pass at [H] so it can't be that bad!

Yes. One of the last commincations I had with Dave Hammock before he disappeared from the web was how a major brand single +12V rail PSU wasn't shutting down when shorted. We were literally arc welding with the PSU. Hopefully Dave's absense isn't due to the fact that he got over zealous with the welding.

You don't have any idea how far below cost that is. And a rebate that's 50% of the cost? That's got a redemption rate of over 80%. Something's up.

While Tuniq is not a very well known name in the PSU market, many of you modders out there are very aware of Tuniq's sister company, Sunbeamtech.
Nothing like a sunbeamtech power supply at least.
