    ok then is it in my best interest in your opinions to spend and extra 5 quid or so to get it from either tekheads or overclock? They are the only other two that stock this part and to be honest I have decided to go for a Thermal Take over the CWT, the thremal take is a peak 550, sustained 480W psu....

    peak means nothing, qtec 550w psus have a peak of about 550w, where as there sustained is about 300w. how long they can sustain peak is more important. im not sure if this is the right value so i will quote the sites:
    "Hold up time: >20ms at full load, nominal line" - cwt
    and the TT "Hold-up Time 16ms"

    You can sit here all night and quote things off the site's of both makes, and explain things to me Ive been explaining to others on this forum since the beginning of time, but it still doesn't alter the fact that my TT is better than my Trueblue on my NF7-S. Period

    Granted, using the TB on my system doesn't cause me any instability, or any other issues. But the Rails are undoubtedly more stable on my TT than my TB (yes thats via a multimeter). The main issue i had with the TB was it taking a disliking to sudden requests for more power. Eg, switching on 4 fans on my baybus would cause a .3 voltage drop for about 1/2 second on the +12 line. I didnt get this on my TT (or nearly as bad anyway).

    As proof ?, what do you want me to do ?. Set up a video camera and record the voltages on it with each PSU plugged in ?.
    If you don't believe me, fine. It don't bother me either way ! . It makes zero difference to me as to what PSU somone buys at the end of the day. Ive got no reason to make bullrubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish up for a "This hardware is better because i own one" battle.

    Maybe I'm just unlucky with this TB (and the one i sent back for just dieing :\ ). But for me, its 2-0 to TT.

    that was what i meant by proof... now i can understand why you think its better.. not that i care what you think... i still think the cwt is better.. not that you care what i think either...
    what i said was quoted fact which i done so i could find out if the tt was any good, which it appears to be.. i wasnt saying it just becuase i own one..................
    also true blue is crapper than the truepower, which is what the CWT A series are, so theres some differences, which might be why you had problems with yours..
