The Tagan 480 was actually the only contender to the Enermax Noisetaker 475 I've fancied, when I was chosing a PSU for my high-end system.
In the end, the reasons that turned me away from the Tagan were these (unverified, as I didn't buy it - just stating my reasons) - my apologies if I can't recall where the links are, for review that I'd based my opinion on:
- Tagan reported to be running VERY hot.
- Tagan reportedly not overly quiet (by SPCR standards).
- The Noisetaker's ATX 1.3 spec is a nice bonus, as is it's pretty impressive adherence to the voltage variances (1-2%).
- The seperate 12V rail is a DARN good idea, IMHO
- As is the "extra" Molex channel, for a graphics card (800XT / 6800 Ultra anyone?).
There is mostly one bone of contention I have with the Noisetaker, that is it's rather stiff cabling - it makes it downright impossible to lay the cable under the motherboard. But, all in all, it doesn't seem to be doing a whole world of damage to my airflow.
My support is case for the Enermax Noisetaker 475 - a darn fine and silent PSU
