    Eight power supplies compared ; There really is a difference

    Here's Power Supply Comparison I found very Interesting over at The TECH Report It's 24 pages and details what power supplys do what and how well They all do with Athlons64 and Opteron cpus.

    I think It since It was a Tie.... The OCZ did measure up. But If You like a cheap gaudy trinket like that Enermax(From Pricewatch.com TotalCost $129.00), Ok, Me I like the OCZ(From Pricewatch.com TotalCost $135.00). I like the adjustable pots and the LEDs that go from Green to Orange If You adjust them to far that the OCZ has. The Enermax reviewed doesn't even measure up to My Enermax 460w EG465P-VE(WC) psu which is better than the Enermax that was reviewed. I would rather Not have something that would look right at home on a pimpmobile(Gold plate instead of chrome and other garish colors).

    Coolergiant/Enermax EG485P-SFMA24P Despite its garish looks and awkward name, I'm quite impressed with the EG485P-SFMA24P. This power supply's voltages are consistent, ripple is low, and efficiency is quite good. The Enermax's noise levels and cooling potential are easily adjusted, too. Quality doesn't come cheap, or in this case pretty, but Enermax unit earns a shared Editor's Choice Gold award nonetheless.

    OCZ 520w PowerStream I loved adjustable voltage rails when Antec put them on its TrueControl power supply, so it's no surprise that I love them on the PowerStream. The PowerStream combines that with a classy mirror finish; an array of cables that are either shielded, sheathed, or neatly wound; and great performance in our voltage tests. Throw in a five-year warranty and eight-pin EPS support for server and workstations boards, and we have our other Editor's Choice Gold recipient.

    The OCZ 520 is a great supply.

    I'm probably never going anything besides PC Power and Cooling again.

    I've used many recent PSu form all the major brands, don't really like any of em.

    Aside from my first 510w deluxe blowing up (figuratively) within 2 weeks of getting it, the second one is an incredible psu. I didn't expect the enermax to live up to OCZ though, wow.
    ironclad.
