    Just bought a new XFX branded power supply for £80, works great. Loads of choices as reviewer says.

    ouch, not much of a deal. Corsair make such good supplies too for no more than this at the same output.

    Good to see this review today. I was beginning to lose faith in the site, but seeing as this actually raises a few critical points about the PSU and doesn’t just rubber stamp it and give it an award for having turned up for the review I figure there’s still hope.

  • Beginning to lose faith? im actually surprised you stuck it out so long Grok23 😉 Id give you an award for turning up to comment so often, but you might not like that either 🙂

    I’m way too old and stubborn to just move on and give up on something I like and I’ll be the first to admit that I can get a bit “passionate” about things. Well hopefully we can move past previous misunderstandings and get back to the important stuff, ie: tech stuff and reviews of new kit. 😉
