    Well, they make them to order.
    Not all psu's are made with the same board, or with the same components, or to the same specs.


    And I follow Hardocp and JohnnyGuru psu reviews.
    Even the low end ones, and mid range stuff.

    Its just my personal preference on the psu's though, based on all the reviews over the last 4-5 years.

    Agree 100 %

    Just was pointing out Seasonic as they do have some decent proucts of there own . The thing with PSU's is you get what you pay for and Knowing spec's and ratings are key to buying the best for given situation . Reveiws are a good comfirmation ....
    Nutcase gave very good advice
    Reason#1: cheaper power supplies have low efficiencies. This will mean you will chew up more AC power to produce the same current to the computer.

    Reason#2: cheaper power supplies fudge on the current ratings and usually use substandard parts in them. Too many people I know of have used cheap power supplies and have ended up with a fried computer.
    Get a Power supply that is at least 80+ certified and has large +12V rails. you will be better off in the long run.
