Default Antec or OCZ Modular PSU

ok here we go. Im looking to buy a modular psu. i was looking at the Ultra but everyone said to stay away from them. So fine, now i'm debating over these two...

Antec NeoHE 500w

or the

OCZ Modstream 520w

to me, theyre both the same so i'm guessing on the antec so its cheaper...the OCZ looks a little crappy to me, the way its built. I still don't know why you guys hate the Ultra. its the same as the Antec and has 38a total on the dual 12v and is just as good as any other modular psu.

The reason people dislike ultra and other brands is because of their reliablity. My advice is stay away from modular. They wont help much, and are more expensive than an equal non-modular PSU.

I'd say the opposite, I have the ModStream 520w and I love it. ****, besides looking sweet it's a great psu. I love having a modular one tho, healps a ton w/ cable management.

the OCZ PSU is great. it not only looks good, and is modular, but it is also of high quality and delivers stable voltages.
