Id go with the Thermaltake, youll find generally they have a better reputation

The Raidmax has better 12v rail ratings, and by specs, is a stronger psu. A lot of people say it's a bad brand though. Higher specs won't do you any good if the thing is defective. I have no experience with either, and can't say. :p

Notice the 5 egg rating on that Thermaltake.


I think my work here is done...
