I know its been done but what about some other brands
Seasonic and Corsair are good but what about Antec, Silverstone, OCZ, Coolermaster, Enermax, Thermaltake and Gigabyte
They are reputable brands in Cases, Graphics and Mobos etc but are they any good at power supplies.
Also if you have had any bad XPs with power let us know.

Hi candlelarbra5212!

Here is a review from Johnny Guru:

OCZ with their new awesome:
ocz zx 1000w gold certified

Antec with their:
HCP850

Kingwin with their:
Kingwin Lazer Gold 1000W
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...

Cooler Master has designed 80plus gold psus but according to Jonnyguru i think they arent worth listing, they are just ok psus and they are expensive.

So yeah just giving you the top other players who do make good psus.
When we are talking about bad psus we are most of the time talking about non brands or generic with no rating nothing at all.

Ok thanks for the clarification. Do you think its worth spending extra on a top brand like seasonic or just getting an antec or somthing like that?

it is worth it alot,
however remember not all Superflower, OCZ, Kingwins etc psus are good.Most of them unfortunately are bad.So before you try to buy a psu look up a review or two to get the feel of the quality of the psu.

And of course there is no bad corsair or seasonic psu.
