Default OCZ Powerstream 600w Vs. PC Power&cooling 510w

Found this interesting post at XS http://xtremesystems.org/forums/show...7&page=1&pp=60

worthy of sharing I'd say

I have been thinking of getting a 500W+ PSU for more than a year now. I read alot of threads and reviews about them and the two finals were the OCZ powerstream 600w and the PC Power & cooling 510. However, all the threads related to these two are usles. They only have opinions and did not have any solid usefull peace of information.

If you really wanna go all out balls to the wall, get a REAL switchmode power supply used for industrial, medical, and critical systems.

You think high end computer power supplies area expensive, try thousands of dollars for some of the real nice SMPS's i've seen. If your worried about ripple, voltage fluctuation, current limits, etc. it may be a possible solution to the comparatively cheaply engineered/designed computer power supplies that everyone thinks is the holyest grail of grails to be grailed.
I spent 10 years in medical electronics .....

Almost all PSU in PC's today are unable to truely deliver the wattage at the temp they claim.

600 Watts UL approved for $18. They are likely made in a garage.
