patonb BFG psu's are just rebranded and built by Topower:

JonnyGURU.com - Power Supply Reviews and more! - Reviews - BFG BFGR650PSU 650W

Theyre not bad psu's at all....but not that great in the end.

if its running too hot:
a: you have inadequate cooling, or something is not installed properly.
b: you are applying too much voltage
c: all of the above

BFG doesnt make psu's or video cards, other manufactures make them and BFG puts their logo on them.

But yeah they need to use a different oem like seasonic or fortron.

yea i know they dont make all there stuff im just saying there rebrands arnt top notch especially the psu's

also quote from that review rican:
Quote:
But with it's crossload tendency, it's tendency for it's voltages to drop under high temps and the drastic drop the 12V rails exhibited when loaded to it's maximum, I would easily consider several 500W units on the market over this... especially at the price this goes for.

I think I'm just going to get a new psu guys. Plus I will probably need a little more juice for the 4870 gpu I will be getting next month.

So, any suggestions on a psu that is good for OCing?
