ah you know what's interesting, the Neo HE 500 has an apparently very underpowered 5V rail that only supplies 17A, causing compatibility issues with some mobos... I guess they cut a corner there to make it cheap... the 520HX supplies 24A on the 5V rail. So I guess I can stop recommending the Antec over the Corsair...

yeah, the Antec PSUs Seasonic built

btw, anybody know much about underpowered 5V rails? It causes problems on boots right? I really wonder if it'll be a problem with a DS3L... I've heard it only being a problem with Asus boards..

That compatibility issue im aware of, and i think it was mainly asus mobos but the the earlier versions, the problem is fixed with the new ones. Ive had no problems since ive built this rig (over a month) and its up 24/7.
