Definitely the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W at zipzoomfly.com. Free shipping there, and it's cheaper than the Corsair 620HX.

It's supposedly a continous 40C, assuming that is on load.

I wouldn't doubt PC Power & Cooling, in anyway. I would choose the 610w model, over any other brand of similar wattage and amperage.

The 12v he was referring to, is the +12v rail. The rails of a PSU, is what supplies the power to your components, and determines the power of the power supply. The +12v rail is responsible for supplying power to the CPU, video card, hard drive, etc.
