Just so you know most everyday PSU's will normally run between 30-70% of their RATED wattage under load at normal opperating temps. However, PcP&C 510 turbo series drops to only 90% under load usually and so does the OCZ psu's (420 470 520 variants). Anyways......food for thought. Im glad someone had pointed that OCZ out to me cuz I woulda never heard about it till after id already bought something else.
