    Personally, I like Sparkle PSU's. I've never had a problem running them ever. But, as long as you get a quality PSU and not some no-name one, you should be fine.

    I bought a 431w dual-fan Enermax about 2 years ago and it's been simply great! I run 5 hard drives, 2 cdrom drives, 6 LED case fans (4 of them quad led, 1 tri led, and 1 dual led), 2 self luminating IDE cables (which require power to each one), a red cold cathode light, 1 70mm fan in my Volcano 7+ HSF setup (stock fan), 1 floppy drive, and even my 9700 Pro requires power. All that and it runs completely stable with no fluctuations in any voltages when viewing stats via pc health in my bios or the MSI tool in Windows. Infact, the voltages are always a _little_ bit high, like 5.15 for +5v and 12.23 for +12v. I was worried that this PSU would not be able to handle it all, but it's doing just fine. I can't speak about the newer Enermax PSUs, though, because from what I have been reading, they are lacking the same quality that they used to have. Or, maybe it's just that they are so popular now, that a statistical rule is being exploited, which says with more units in service, there will be more failures... or something like that. Hmmmm... could be! :)

    As stated before, if you buy a major brand name 400+ watt PSU, chances are you will be ready for almost any power hungry setup.

    Well, that's probably why I hadn't heard of uneec when I bought my case. Same diff, same case.

    I own two of them. Once I bought about a year ago and it was supposedly an Enermax. My second one I bought at CompUSA as a generic CompUSA brand type, with window and no PSU. I swapped the window panel door with my other one so I could show off my gaming rig (the one shown in my sig pix). Awesome cases, indeed!

    Hey Guys,

    Need your opinions of the case and PSU I just bought. Hope I didn't buy a POS case, but for some reason I fear the response. Here is the casehttp://www.dealsonic.com/skyhapsma1mm.html and here is the PSU http://www.antec-inc.com/pro_details...p?ProdID=20481 ? I think the PSU is good, but the case probably doesn't have good air flow, although I'll be modding it with a top window w/fan as soon as it arrives.
