Default Silverstone Zeus 1200 watt

I was browsing for a new PSU and I came across this: http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...1200M&area=usa

I went to silverstones site and found that it is new. The design is pretty nice. You can switch between single or multiple 12v rails and when in single its 95A. I was going to get this or the decathlon. Decathlon is only 90A single. But is there some reason why it may be a better choice? Here is the Decathlon 1200: http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...a1200&area=usa

The Zeus has less ripple than the Decathlon. Everything I have read states it is an excellent PSU.

I went with the zeus. For anyone purchasing one, though, it should be noted: it is set to 6 rails by default, you must change it to single. Over the opening where the switch is, is a small sticker that says "warranty void if removed", which makes little sense to me. . . Why advertise rail switching if it voids warranty? Maybe my sticker was misplaced, I don't know. Further, it has one 80mm fan, instead of a 120mm fan, like the decathlon. This has its advantages, though. The PSU only vents to the rear of the case and has no large fan inside the case stirring up hot air. They claim the 80mm keeps it at the same temp as the decathlon, so, I will take their word for it.
