    I kind of need a definate answer hehe thanks for the input thugh....also looking at this one which is cheaper and i know it has enough power on the 12v rails as it actually tells you on the specs!

    http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119250

    So which one should i get and does anyone know if the igreen can handle it? All coolermaster sites are down for me..

    EDIT: Scrap that, thanks mith!

    The definite answer is yes

    365 watts as you have read from the specs is fine max draw on the 320 is around 185 watts, so you still have a fair amount of head room for the rest of your components. the rails already stated will be plenty.

    Watts has little to do with it as you know.

    TBH....the Fortron Blue Storm 500W is a better unit at that price. Here: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=271185

    For a few quid more (less than £10) you can go to a very decent unit. Here: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/(14917)...00W-Power.aspx

    Beware of that collermaster psu, I've got the same one in my sff that has my music collection and vista on that I experiment with.

    Anyway to cut a long story short the +5v rail on mine hovers around +4.79v and the +3v rail is around +3.21v (all taken in the bios.) its not to much of a problem with me as I only use it occasionally but might be something to keep in mind.

    They are decent units. FSP does the OEM job on the OCZ its an Epsilon FSP in disguise

    The iGreens are made by channelwell I believe and are looking better in the internal components than the earlier designs.

    I have used the iGreen series in a couple of builds based on the GTS and E6600, both are still working and havent killed my customers pc's yet.

    Dunno why there is this downer on the new series of Coolermaster PSU, still history does have a way of dragging a product down.
    Just thought I would these comments from customers on NewEgg and the final page on ModdersInc

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171010

    http://www.modders-inc.com/reviews-story-5-54.html

    If I had the money however I would go Seasonic. Mainly as it has the 8 pin connector so at least you are covered.

    Test it with a multimeter, then report back

    Should be ok, and ebuyer alternative is Hiper 580W Type-M at £52.29 (I'm sure they'll sjhout at me if it's not)

    Not much in the line of lower cost Seasonic or targan on ebuyer
    a Tagan Dual-Engine 650Wat £80
    a Seasonic S12 Series 430W £45.55
    a Seasonic S12-550E+ 80Plus 550W £87.50

    they have got the Corsair HX Series 520W Modular at £68.01
    And they've got the OCZ StealthXStream 600W for £54.24 which is good and is actually made by FSP

    EDIT: Review of the coolermaster igreen 430w on hardware secrets they liked it and deffinately thought this was not a cheap generic PSU
