    Mixed opinions

    In general I avoid non-well known brands, so I would see if you can do some research on who actually builds these machines. My XClio for example is actually a CWT built unit that's basically an antec true power PSU. Otherwise check that you've got good amps on your 12v lines, and that you've definately got some good shut down features so that if it does go belly up it won't damage anything else.

    what system is it powering why not go with a safe option that you knwo people have and dont go wrong, i have heard of peples xclio psu making loads of noise and things and i wouldnt buy a lesser known brand as said above.

    if its gotta be around 600w then i would say hiper 580 type r many people including me have one and its great and has been for a year neally now and its 60 quid, oh and it looks great in blue

    The Tagan is a much safer bet. Its a well reputed brand and should remove any worries about stability you might have. I would def go for the Tagan

    that just means its sli certified meaning its powerfull enough to run two graphics cards, and nvidia have tested and agreed with hiper that its got the power

    obviously it depends what graphics cards your running, but it should be fine if your running a very high end single card

    not ad i just dont see the point of paying 20 more quid lol. the enermaxs do have there faults as i seem to remember in custom pcs psu test they didnt do to well, at the end of the day 20w is nothing in the grand scale i mean its not going to mean your system does or doesnt run lol
