    Question PSU Recommendations?

    So the story is I have a Vapochill PE and to my surprise my antec truepower 430W is not sufficient to power it!

    I need recommendations as to which PSU's will be able to cope with this power hungry beast, Do any of you know of a PSU which can handle a Vapo PE?

    Rep points on offer for promt help as always!
    Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

    Tagan 480W is the most well-built psu you can buy atm - and one of the most silent (better than the zalmans etc).

    Sheer perfermance must go to something like an antec truepower 550W. You just cant beat them.

    Have you considered using two psus for your system? Seems a shame the 430W truepower might be going to waste.

    Enermax 550w, great psu - solid rails and very quiet with the fan on low as well ...... bit pricey but well worth it imo.

    Just bought:

    Antec TrueControl 550W

    Praying to assorted gods that this will satisfy the vapo!

    The new OCZ 520W PowerStream, it mat be £104, but it has built in pots on each of the rails so you can manually increase voltage when overclocking, BTX ready, LED indicators for good/bad voltage etc etc
    Had good reviews too.
    Depends how much you want to spend i suppose.

    All the best.

    Q-tec....

    Nar, seriously, you should be fine with any of the major brands (Antec, enermax, thermaltake, new coolermasters, cwt's ect...)
    Personaly, ive always had excellent experiences with Thermaltakes.

    yay another psu thread (see what I mean, mods? )

    As above, the cwt 550w is good. Its same as teh antec 550w truepower.

    Read the other recent psu threads.

    I know but, I just cant justify spending more on my budget.. so can anyone give me a reccomend , even though it might break my computer .

    To be honest though, I run this box of some cheapo psu and its not broken after 2years. So its probably pot luck
