    Thanks for the info mart. Hmm so which is the most reliable PSU around? I want something rock solid, I'm no rich but I don't mind paying little extra for reliability. Has OP decided which PSU to go?

    Komplett will be doing an offer on the OCZ 600W (it's a customer version of the FSP Epsilon) for £70 which is a good deal.

    I've just checked OCZ website for more detail, and it does seem really good PSU. It has 4x18A 12V rails with 83% efficiency which is amazing. I'm leaning towards this one now.(sorry NeoHE) But Komplette site says it's still at 85quid? When will I be able to get one at 70?

    And also.....where's OP? lol

    I think Seasonic RMA is handled by Nanopoint (UK based distributor) so you won't have to ship internationally.

    The main reason I didn't want to buy a NeoHE was because of the shipping to Holland.

    Still include Seasonic on the list if you're undecided as it looks like Scan have the new version.

    Check out the great review in Custom PC www.custompc.co.uk Labs and then find the PSU entry - it will help a lot - especially with what not to buy! I expect there will be another in the next 3 months or so - they seem to do a big PSU lab about once per year.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    I'd recommend Seasonic or the Corsair HX520W, which is made by Seasonic.

    Also, check out www.jonnyguru.com -- IMO he does one of the best PSU reviews on the web.

    Thanks for the info, psumann, that corsair PSU looked indeed attractive but I went for OCZ GameXStream 600W in the end. I've just ordered one at Komplett.
