Fortron/SPI 530Watt will always get my vote for cost effective use when ordered from NewEgg by uSa user. Can even open the supply and tweak the 3.3V rail for added Vdimm oomph for ~75.00UsD shipped. I now have two of them since buying the second one to power my UT250 and installing it stopped my cold booting problems as well> which was the reason I upgraded a very 'good' spec'ed 460 watter for the 'known' to work Fortron 530.

I also vote for the fortron. On a very respectable(strong rails via a DVM) no name PSU tha came with my Cheiftec case, I was unable to clock my CPU passed 2250Mhz. With the fortron i can hit 2450. The 64's seem to need a higher 12v rail.

A real good one at any rate.

 

I have a 460 something watt AgPb that has a +12V rating of like 22Amps and the thing must be highly over-rated. Groaned like a biatch when pushed. Cold booted and well you should have the picture.

 

New 530watt Fortron with 18Amps on the +12V and nary a whimper and gone to clock her.
