Mushkin is not popular, however they still have some good power supplies.

Nice review. I have had mushkin on my power supply guide for awhile now.

Oh yea? Which one did you have? Did you ever get around to any voltage or line testing?

Did you give it to someone else or do you still have it?

I have the one that was reviewed above and I have the old 650 watt one they came out with last year around CES. I still have both I have like 9 test rigs lol PSU's are things I hang onto :)

They are both stable actually my testing was exactly what Alans was.

One thing that I liked about the 800 is its partly modular their last one was not.

Modular is the way to got for maximum cooling :) I have had many power supplies from hundreds of dollar ones to the el cheapo freebie model and this one is great with a balance of power and design all in one. It's definatly a keeper.
