Default Psu

Is this PSU any good? Is it a good company?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817121012

If not, then what is a good PSU? I realize that it is a bad thing to get a cheap PSU so if this one isn't all too good then what does everyone else recommend?

Also, I need this thing to have at least 6 3-pin connectors (I think) for the Zalman fan controller that I am getting, will the 9 peripheral connectors cover that? Is that what a peripheral connector is?

Edit* How does this thing have so many connectors and only like 6 plug outlets on it?

Looks good to me, only thing that I see that would be a problem are people who reviewed it were saying the cables were very stiff.

Also, I noticed that it only has two SATA connectors. Does that limit me to only two hard drives?

I personally don't know anything about Kingwin and I'm pretty sure it's not an A brand. Th efficiency is also not that great so you can get better for that price (FSP, Enermax, Seasonic, OCZ, Hiper)

^^ > Than the one you posted All for the same price or less. And that doesn't even begin to cover them all.
And you can always get Converters if there aren't enough connectors.

Don't get that PSU. Bad amp distrobution..

Out of those, the Mushkin is so much better than all of those. 3.3v and 5v rails aren't full of amps, 80 12v amps.. amps *12v = 824 * .84 = 692... basically 700 watts out of 12v rails..

just get the mushkin, i say ^^

Supposedly it has a green LCD light on the fan and I was mostly going for a blue/black theme.

How does this one look? I don't want one that's worse than one that I can get for less.

This is the case that I am going to be getting.

Will the usb and other stuff at the top of the case be in the way of the PSU? Someone said that they had a problem with a fan at the top of case because the PSU was too long.

Those would be my top 2 picks around that price range. Or one of the psu's Ste linked you to. Any one of those would be great imo.
