The argument I was given is that TT pays those reviewers for good reviews

Additionally, you have to take the quality of the review into account. None of the reviews you linked are very thorough.

 

They spend pages talking about the cables and design of the enclosure but very little about the stability of the unit.

 

You can have a really pretty PSU with lots of nice cables that is abosolutely crap.

 

How does the unit hold up under varying loads? Are the 12V rails going to hold up if the 5V rail is lightly loaded?

 

So far none of these reviews has properly tested a ThermalTake PSU and given it a passing grade.

as much as i dislike Tom's Hardware Guide, I do read it occassionally

recent psu testing:

older psu testing:

now i dont live and die by one place such as this...but I add what i read (after checking their testing routines) to other stuff that I read and then try one out for myself.

The Seasonic 600W is on sale at ewiz for 106 atm

 

http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=PS-S12-600&c=pw

 

I dunno should I get it? Since I don't have my other parts yet, and let it sit around for a few weeks until I start ordering my other stuff? Or should I holdoff and hope the prices are still the same in a few weeks?

 

After much thought throughtout the week, seeing your post reminded me about that cheap price (found it myself today), I just ordered mine. I never did bussiness with ewiz before, so i hope it works out okay :)

 

I recently built my new lab PC at work, and used a seaonic 500W. i really like the quality, efficiency (80%), good reviews and it's also quiet. Newegg sells these for $161... it kinda seesms too cheap, i hope it isn't like some older revision or some sort :confused:

Hey I've just built a rig with the foll:

 

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice

DFI LanParty UT nF4 Ultra-D

OCZ 1 GB Dual Channel EL PC3200 Gold

Hitachi Deskstar T7K250

256MB ASUS Radeon X800XL

OCZ ModStream 450W

 

Things seem to work just fine now. Is there a chance of the 450W PSU blowing down the road. No OC out here... everything is and will remain @ stock.
