I just ordered one from newegg to replace my Antec Truepower 380, it should arive Monday. I haven't had a problem with the Antec yet but i wanted something with a 24 pin connector and a PCI-X 6 pin connector so I don't have to use an adaptor. I was feeling a bit inadequate with my wimpy little 380. Anyways my buddy has this same PSU for about a year now and his voltages are right on and the thing is soo whisper quiet. I like the idea of the PSU staying on for an additional 2 minutes after shutdown to cool components. Supposedly it will keep my case cooler as well but I idle at 30C already, so I'm not expecting much more. The PSU has gotten great reviews on newegg and Enermax has great rep.

My specs:
P4 630 3Ghz w/ Artic Cooler Freezer Pro 7 HSF
Asus P5GDC Deluxe MB
1GB (2x512) Patriot DDR400
Leadtek 6800GS Extreme (485/1100Mhz)
120GB WD SATA II HDD
A-Open DVD-RW
Lite-On CD-RW
Linksys wireless network card
2 120mm Aspire case fans
