    You rich man

    Well as long as you know it's dead then there's no worries. Always better to have tried all options than to just assume and sit there smug then be told it's working when it gets tested

    Anyhoo I just tried that freightsearch to pick a box of 6kg size 46x34x25cm and it cost £7.92. £100 insurance included I've been told (got it on an email from the owner of the site) but like I said as long as the stuff is well packed you'd have to be seriously unlucky to ever have it get lost or damaged.

    Just had my PSU rma'ed by Scan and got it back within the week so hope the same goes with yours

    Re: My 520W HX is a paper weight!

    Not too worried when it comes back as long as it does. My OCZ is happy running it and I'm not using my PC at all right now so no big deal.

    I measured it roughly and I think its a bit less than 6KG but that is a good price, thanks.

    won't stop buying them on the basis of this, but if there were a closey matched enermax I might think twice lol
    There is an Enermax that is cheaper and better though

    Yeah thats right. It was one of the most efficent at the time of buying and wasn't too expensive as I remember it.

    I've never heard it on it's own or in a quiet case before though, very quiet indeed, not far behind the corsair.

    Very true blitzen but since I'm not in the market for a new one (yet..) I was thinking more down the line with model changes etc..

    I do very much like the enermax modu82 though, I see what you mean about the build quality now.

    modu82+ 625w?

    Is it real silent?

    How's the fan controlled? By temp or load?

    Having a real problem with PSU's here

    I have the 625 but the 525 is almost the same.
    Fan is temp controlled and silent.

    It blows my Corsair away.


    Its THE BEST PSU i have ever owned.

    Good to hear that though. I may try and get one of those.

    It's a shame the 425W has disappeared. £50 was a bargain for those.

    Yeah, I've noticed that, it's a shame, one of those would have been ideal for my HTPC. Modular too.
