    What do you mean it's good quality. Is it an Antec, Enermax, Sparkle/Fortron Source, thermaltake, etc.

    Or is it another brand or generic PSU that you have somehow tested the power rails yourself?
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?

    If it's an Antec 400w PSU then you should be fine unless you're also running 6HDD's or something of that nature. : peace2: Mista K6
