Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER eXtreme RP-500-PCAR ATX from factor 12V V2.01 500W Power Supply 90-132V/180-260V Nemko, TUV, cUL, CE, BSMI, FCC, CCC - Retail
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply 115/230 V CSA, CB, TUV, FCC, UL - Retail

the logysis psu i have right now is giving me a STUNNING 6000 on 3dmark05!!! YOWZA





im thinking the xcilo or the rosewill, the rosewill has more amps, and more reviews, but the xcilo just seems more reliable, but i buy a LOT of rosewill stuff, and I like them, they're reliable, never heard of xcilo :?.

I can't wait till i get my psu... I get to give this psu some hammer time
