Are there any recent failure-rate reports on PSU manufacturers?

Cant be over 100

I would suggest one of these Zero point modules , they are able to supply a lot of power.

If there's anything about a computer you don't want to put a price limit on, it's a power supply.

My original PC Power & Cooling 750W silencer is now on it's 5th motherboard. I don't think it's model even been made in a year and a half.

I've heard great things about Corsair power supplies.

Though I don't think you can go wrong with Corsair, PCP&C, Silverstone or Seasonic.

My OCZ (made by FSP) has been flawless as well, but I don't think their reputation is in the same class as the others.

I have a corsair and love it, and I also have an enermax that I have had for many years. Both are great, but I have heard that enermax qc has gone down in the last few years.

I use Corsair and Seasonic. My HX620 has been a real trooper. (It's incidentally built on the exact same Seasonic platform as the Silencers).

I have heard that enermax qc has gone down in the last few years.

Well, there were some issues for a while with the Liberty units (maybe the Infinity too), where they had used a type of glue that somehow became conductive and made the PSU go "poof". They don't use that anymore, at least not in the new MODU/PRO82+ and Revolution series.

Tagan have always been good for my mates who have had them. CCL do a 780w for about 100..

PC Power and Cooling = Top of the Line

Anything from them that satisfies your power requirements will be good.

My OCZ 1000w power supply has been great so far. I know it's overkill for my system and I wouldn't have paid what they wanted for it but I got it free so I can't complain. :)

I would have...But was forced to buy an Antec , I'm hoping that wasn't a terrible mistake.

You should be fine. I used Antec PSU's consistently a few years back and only had one fail. I've used PC P&C in the last 4 builds until last month. I put Corsair PSU's into my last two.

Well its not DOA but ffs why couldnt they add another inch on the 8 pin motherboard lead!!!

You'd think they would make it compatible with their own cases!!!

I suppose the p182 is no longer supported by Antec PSU's...

Look for one that has capacitors rated at 105 C. The standard in 85 C I believe.

One with a 5 year warranty will be good too. If the manufacturer has confidence in them it's likely they will last longer.

I bought the Earthwatts 750w ,It has only a 3 year warranty unlike their Truepower that has 5 (looking at the numbers it seems to be a VERY similar unit).
