    I didn't read properly and only voted for one. What a douche.

    So, in addition to my vote for BeQuiet, can you add corsair and antec for me?

      PC Power & Cooling - Turbo Cool Series, the Sillencer Series are slightly more OCZ influenced, and not as good i don't think! (this is my personal fav, however may not sell all that well, but if paying top end prices for 860watt (ish) PSU's i want a top quality unit not just a wattage cranked budget unit)

      So for the purpose of the Poll.....

      Corsair has got to be in there, because they are simply good and i bet sell well.

      Seasonic generally good solid cost effective units, with a good history of stability

      Antec in picking this one i'm looking at progress, and antec have been making some good changes to their ranges, and make solid units as well as powerful units.


      Picking 3 were not so easy from that list, and then their are those that will look at the single vs multi rail option, and i think i have a good mix there, Corsair use a hybred single design if i remember correctly, whereas Antec are multi rail dedicated

      Despite picking those three in the poll, my personal prefference remains PC Power & Cooling, i'm just not sure how much of that expertise has filtered through to OCZ or been heeded, as they still seem hell bent on advertising things as silent or quiet, when quite obviously they will not be !! and marketting gimmicks to gain attention, PC P&C always had a simple approach, plain box, emphasis on stability, even at the cost of a little extra noise sometimes. Although those are not as likely to sell as well

      Added after 3 minutes:

      The biggest problem as i see it is to be able to keep the range down, whilst still being able to provide an option to cover most pockets, my choices are going to give you similar prices....... not ideal for you

        The Zalman ZM-750HP i have at the moment is the best psu i have ever had. It's reliable, efficient and very quiet.

        Second would be Enermax. Their new ranges are very good. I have a 385w Pro 82+ powering my second rig and it has'nt missed a beat.

        Third i would say Antec. The new Truepower modular psu's are excellent units and even their budget range is half decent.

            Not overly fussed.

            Currently using a couple of OCZ Xstream PSU's, and can't complain about them!

                    They are relatively new, and were not very well advertised (if they were even available) when the poll was created (still can't believe original poster missed off PC Power and Cooling!)

                      Corsair and CoolerMaster joint 1st. I've owned a Corsair from pretty much every power bracket (HX450, TX750, HX850, TX950) and every single one has been faultless.

                      CoolerMaster's RealPower and SilentPower series are both fantastic aswell, again owned everything from 500W to 850W and never did 1 skip a heartbeat (even when powering a 9800GX2 SLI rig for a short time).

                      Not sure what to put 3rd as I cant remember the last time I had a PSU not from the above manufactures.

                      I guess PC P&C get a vote for having one of the most robust reputations in the field.

                              I went with Corsair, Seasonic and XFX. XFX because they make a cloned Seasonic 850 that is 2/3 of the price of the real Seasonic 850.
