That psu looks shaky to me. I looked at the first 2 pages of reviews and saw multple doa's or died in a short time. The rosewill Hive series are the only decent ones. Take a look at this Corsair 600 watt..Its about $5.00 more right now, and is actually cheaper after the rebate. Its a much better unit
