As a perfectionist and owner of a watercooled pc, I feel a need to get rid of the last fan in my system. Not because it's noisy, but because I can. Aquacomputer (http://126.96.36.199/
) sells watercooled psu's in Germany for 300 Euro (hence the word "silly" in the topic), and I feel the urge to buy one. They are based on an existing Engelking psu, and I believe the quality is rather high, it's just that for such an expensive thing, the power rating is modest : 250 W. Now this is not peak power, but sustained power, so it's not that low. I'm just worried about the max output of the individual lines, and if they are enough for the next pc which probably has an even more power hungry processor because I'd like it to last longer than just my current pc. So to the experts on how much current is needed on each voltage lines I ask: Are these numbers more than adequate (alas: also good for future), or just adequate (good for now, but not for the next pentium 4 @ 4GHz) ?
Here are the numbers:
3.3 V : max 20 A sustained.
5V : max 21 A sustained.
12 V : max 13 A sustained.
Max combined power output :110W(30A).
Max sustained power output : 250W.
My current system (briefly):

Thanks in advance for a well argumented answer!
