  3. Fortron.
  4. I'd go with Fortron Source. They handle higher loads and have a longer service life than the Antec True power, and many "high end" power supply "makers" use them for their own supplies (usually adding extra features like quieter fans, etc). Sparkle is part of the FSP group, for which Fortron Source is the manufacturer.

  5. Thanks for the help Crashman, the detailed explanation helps a lot.

  6. Falcon Northwest, Maingear and Voodoo PC all use Enermax PSU for their $5,000+ PC. I think it is good indication that Enermax makes great PSUs.
  7. I just purchased a Zalman PSU and it has very stable voltages, I'm not sure how well it handles high loads since I don't have a lot in my system right now. But the Zalman PSU's are sure quite. The only noise from my case right now is my CPU fan, and that will change soon.

    <b>Just because I like AMD or Intel more at a time because of one product compared to another, does not make me a fan boy, it makes me a person who is able to make a decision for myself.</b>
  8. Zalman uses Fortron Source power supplies with their own quiet cooling modifications.

  9. Thanks Crash, it's always good to know who is actually manufacturing what you are using.
