If you're going to play in the highly competitive 500-600 Watt range, your power supply better bring something to the table. OCC reviewer paulktreg takes on the latest power supply as he bench tests the Mushkin Volta 600W Power Supply - http://www.overclock.../mushvolta600w/

Such a tiny PCB in such a large metal case. But great noise/ripple suppression. Top notch!

No I couldn't find a price and as mentioned in the review I hope the price doesn't let down what is a great power supply.

Cheers

Well, time will tell. If Mushkin can put out a full line of good PSU's I will say they are as good as Corsair. Until then they can't compete in my mind.

I am the reason we can't have nice things.

that doesn't mean they can't have a better/cheaper quality 600W :P
