LMAO. That 550w has the same amperage on its 12v rail as my 400w PSU. No wonder it blew up.

lol thats pretty funny. and the main reason my eyes locked to the TT was because of the amperage, price, looks, and most importantly: Modular Cabling. I love that stuff, makes wire management soo much easier.



Man I forgot how fast my HP was

Too lower amperage for that price...

This is the one I would have chose.

Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550V2-S-SL 550W SLI Ready-ATX12V V2.01 Power Supply 115/230 V CSA,UL,TUV,FCC - Retail

Actually I did choose it as I own it. Excellent stability and amperage for the money.
