I would also stick with the xfx, i wouldn't think you would see too much of an increase with software voltage increase anyway. Your overclocks are going to be limited.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case

Also xfx warrentees overclocking... So you can push the crap out of it, and still be covered.

@baron: i've heard the general limits on stock volts end around 925ish. with a little voltage tweaking many have been getting 1000+

There's nothing about multi-rail PSU's that make them safer. That's just marketing. If anything, they're less safe, because the rails get strained more easily.
They make multi rail PSU's because it's cheaper to do with lower quality components per rail.

No they definitely do not use cheaper components.

Nobody I know has any troubles with Corsair PSU's at all.
