im not sure what happened but it billowed smoke, threw 2 caps off of the circuit board (found em rattling around in the casing. then it fried my mobo. so its a piece of junk and dont use it...

That PSU is overkill, are you planning to upgrade the graphics card?

^ Yeah, the XFX is an excellent PSU, but imo, it's an overkill for that set up with a 4670. Unless you plan to get a 5850,etc and CrossFire, that XFX is a massive overkill. DO NOT get that Thermaltake PSU.
