Default Review: Coolermaster GX450 vs Nexus Value 430

The folks at Madshrimps just posted their double-review of two "low-end" units. They called 'em "low-end" but I think "low wattage" would be more accurate.... or would it?? Read and find out:
Asus M4N72-E SLI; AMD Phenom II x4 955BE 3.20ghz w/ Spire ThermaxII Eclipse cooler; 6gb DDR2; 750gb+320gb+250gb SATA HDD; 2xDVDRW; Zotac GTX570; Topower PowerBird900; NZXT Beta EVO case; Win7x64

So a review at Cookie Master Venlo with rimple ripple measurements.
The Nexus only has real low ripple at 12V, maybe to low?

The Nexus seems to be a good ATNG, I looked up on it a few weeks ago. CM is sucking with the ripple as usual. But yeah, ripple is a little too low on that one. The reviewer is ignorant as he's talking about running a 4870X2 or multi GPU configs and quads on a low end 430W PSU.

Ahh, good ol' ATNG. I love how clean their PCB's are and how well the components are mounted.

12v Ripple is too low, it should be in the 40-50mv range for the 430w unit.
