Agreed! A great review as always. I'd recommend the Corsair TX750W before this though.

Yeah Paul, your review was very in-depth.
To be honest a lot of it was over my head. I understand what you were doing with the oscilloscope n such but it is just something I would never take in to consideration or even think about when buying a PSU.
I think its really cool that you take the testing to the next level like that.
