This PSU blew up!

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W

I am returning it since it only worked for about 30 seconds.

What should I get instead?

I am running a Phenom 965 and a 6870. I might go xfire on the 6870 in the future and I want it to be reliable!

Something from Corsair maybe?

Corsair, seasonic, or antec. I would also just run at stock settings for a few days to be sure the problem was the ps and not something else.

in addition to the ones mentioned.

xfx, enermax, silverstone

a 650w+ from any of them will power your PC with 6870 in CF easily.

A follow up question...
This PSU has 1 12V rail but they boast that it is all you need since you do not have to "balance your power." What should I be concerned with when hooking up the cables to "balance my power" if using more than 1 12V rail. Is the 12V rail a physical cable connection?

yes that a good unit you selected. the article below should answer your rail question(s)

What is "multiple +12V rails", really?

In most cases, multiple +12V rails are actually just a single +12V source just split up into multiple +12V outputs each with a limited output capability.
