huh, so my earthwatts platinum showed up DOA im going to return it (and maybe not get the same) and I was wondering what else you guys thought would be good. I see all of the previously recommended PSUs but some are very expensive or not available nearby. I have now learned what you guys meant by "quality"
the earthwatts green 380 could work, but would probably need extensions for my ATX and 12VCPU in my P182, 4 to 8 pin adaptor and apparently a fan replacement, (i want to overclock my X3-440 so the 4 Pin connector on the EA-380D sketches me out a little though Quest says its fine, and i understand its only an issue on the PSU side, not the mobo side of the cable)
Im happy with a 400W+ PSU.
