looks like corsair HX520, enermax Pro82+ 525W and CM Silent Pro 500W are all pretty good midrange PSUs..

CM just needs to be at the same $139 price range instead of $159 to be a viable recommendation locally.

locally our high end PSUs are mostly overpriced

and we need a better selection of lower wattage high quality PSUs..

Well, i thought wheen my M700 Silent pro started buzzing it was sort of a damper, doubting its quality.. but good thing it was a faulty AC 3pin plug..haha.


Well, strange but true. Anyway CM all the way ...
