  8. I will never trust ThermalTake again. I had a PSU for about 6 months. It exploded (literally) one day for no apparent reason. TT replaced the unit under warranty. I installed a temporary unit while waiting for the replacement from TT and I found two of my HDDs fried. I received the replacement from TT and the second I attached the power cable, the replacement TT PSU exploded, killing my motherboard. TT would not compensate me for any of my damaged hardware. I will never knowingly purchase a ThermalTake product again.

    It's pretty highly regarded and more than enough power for your proposed graphics configurations.
