Default Looking for a good PSU

I am trying to pick out a good psu for my up coming build and I havent had any luck. Heres what I have considered so far...

COOLER MASTER Real Power RS-550-ACLY 550W

Sunbeam Nuuo Series 550W SLI


Antec TrueControl II 550


And thats about it so far... I like the cooler master one but I have read bad reviews on it. I also like the Sunbeam one and I am not too sure about that. What do u think of these? Any other suggestions?

antec trucontrol or smartpower (I think thats right) 450w or 550w would be the best.. if not antec get a cooler master or thermaltake.. thats what I would get in that order. I am personally using a antec smartpower 450 and the exhaust fan wont come on utnil the temp reaches a certain point.. Also one of the few psu that is a 24pin and the last 4 pins can be snapped off to make it a 20pin for the older mobos.. very handy. and quiet with the fan feature.

The best psu's out on the market, in my opinion, are ones from ocz. Although expensive, they perform really well... like this one... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817711001. Cooler master's are good though, but, in my opinion, I would only good ocz, along with the 1k turbo cool for max power... lol....
