Default The most reliable & powerful PSU?

Hi,

I have set up a server with a Epox 8K5A3+ a few days ago. I connected 10 hard drives to it but after a few days, my new Antec NEO HE 550W has given up...

Which power supply can you suggest? I went through a lot of reviews for this Neo power from Antec... If it could be silent as well...

with something that big get a PC power and cooling powersupply

they are the best on the market. also expensive. but dang worth it.

also dont get a NEO.. they are bad.
if you cant get a pcp&c then get a FSP group 700watt

but pc power and cooling is the best

Im not sure what you mean by "System" but here are a few
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ice=&maxPrice=

IMO If I had to list Power supplies By quality It would go something like this.

PC Power And Cooling
OCZ
Antec
Enermax

I would only buy out of those four, but thats just me. :P
