I have it lol so I can give you a fairly good review. I love it dude...+12v line has never dropped below 11.92 during full load, heavy overclocking and even when I had 13 system fans, 4HD's, and 2 optical drives....it's a trooper indeed...very worth the money IMO

ive heard good things about it.
have u looked at the antec neopower?

i know its only 480W but its really really good. u can unplug molex cables if ur not using them. its got a 120mm fan that is silent and temperature sencing. its got a dedicated 12v fan rail that is also ran off the temp sensor so you dont have to use a fan controller for them.


both are good, just read reviews about them and make your own mind up

I was looking at PSU's from UK websites and I spotted the 680 Thermaltake for about an extra £5-10's I can't remeber but I was fristly considering getting that PSU but then I seen the 680 for the extra money even though I didn't buy any of them, just an idea.

This is the 680 watt one. I got mine just recently, this is probably the best one they have. It has THREE +12V rails.
Anyway I think it's great, very steady flow and it has active pfc and all that stuff.
Fans are cool and quiet also.
