My vote goes to Enermax. High quality power supplies, I use two - No problems at all.

I vote for AOpen, since they're the only company on there I've used. I'm also throwing in a vote for Sparkle, Deer, and Antec:cackle:

I've got an Antec 400w PS and it failed on me after about 6 months of 24/7 agressive usage....

Luckily, Antec has awesome service...I sent in the bad Antec PS and they sent me a new one, no questions asked...

GREAT Service AND they actually STICK to their warranty!
I would recommend Antec

(The new Antec PS is still running very well)

I have the 300W P4 AOpen PSU mentioned, and it is doing an awesome job of keeping my (stacked) case powered. Here's what it is powering:

1.7GHz Willamette P4
Shuttle AV40R mobo
256MB Apacer DDR
2 x 20GB WD Protege HDDs in RAID-0
2 x 6.4GB Quantum HDDs
48x CD-ROM
16x10x40 CD-RW
64MB GeForce3 Ti200
SoundBlaster Live!
2 NIC Cards
TV/FM Tuner Card
6x 80mm fans
CPU Fan
Chipset Fan


Never had a PSU related problem with it :thumb:

Mum just bought a 350W AOpen for her system, and it is as heavy as a brick... the heatsinks inside are MASSIVE!!! :eek:
