Default Anyone have any experience with these PSUs?

Does anyone have one of these? I was also wondering whether I should go modular on non-modular.

The Thermaltake is good, but I'd stay away from the Hiper.

Modular is good for cable management, that's pretty much the only point to it.

About modular. I know there is some resistance with the connectors, can this affect the voltages on the rails much? And why would you stay away from the Hiper BTW? I don't like the fan vent on the Thermaltake, it's a bad design.

Ah wait, I was thinking of a different brand, that Hiper is good. A little better than the Thermaltake actually.

If you can find it, get the Silverstone ST75ZF. Best of the best in power supplies. You might pay a little more though.

I doubt the modular PSU would effect voltages at all.

tbh the resisitance as created by the connectors should be negligible...

as far as the PSUs go, I dont know.

Do you know who makes the Thermaltake toughpower series?

EDIT: Yay, got the Thermaltake for 53. I couldn't get the Hiper because the modular connectors will not fit in because of my CPU cooler.
