just get the xclio

What do you mean, "works both ways"? If you have a 400w PSU rated at 60% efficiency, then yes, you would see a 640w power draw at the mains.

what about the PSUs being modular or non-modular? Should i be concerned about this?

ok ive finally decided to get the Xclio, so now lets end this discussion!

Errm, what..?

Same as the Antec.. what..? Antec has more than 1 OEM.. so you would have to be more specific in that case.

There are some Antec and Xclio models that are made by CWT, but that doesn't mean they are the same... Also, that doesn't mean CWT cannot make PSUs for Thermaltake. So what the **** are you trying to say..?

Nobody is talking about the Goodpower models.

Enermax Liberty is not even worth considering when there are power supplies such as the Corsair HX520 around the same price range.


So yeah, don't correct me until you stop talking out of your you know what. Much appreciated.
