Default PSU died. Help me find a replacement

My silverstone 1200 stopped working friday

I hooked up a corsair 650 temporarily with a cheap little radeon card with a passive heat sink just so it'll power the system.

I just sent silverstone an email requesting info on getting it repaired but if they fire back a massive quote for repair, I'm considering just going to buy a new one.

Although, I know it's hard to find a PSU on par with the silverstones, I'm not necessarily wanting a tremendous amount of power here. Something that's strong enough to adequately power what's in my sig.


thanks for any suggestions.

I'm pretty sure that I have a couple of uber-power supplies in my computer room that aren't being used. If you're interested, I'll locate them and maybe we can work out a deeply-discounted deal.

Dig the site and the name!

How about giving me a really cool name? MikeC is so generic and I'm tired of using it.

Hook me up man.

Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen!

I have found a PC Power and Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW SR. Pay for packaging and shipping and it's yours.

http://www.pcpower.com/downloads/specs_3834.pdf

Or you may want to see what is available behind Door Number 3.

I'll be back in a few, but seem to recall that we ordered 2 high-end PSUs with modular fittings a while back. One of them must be around because I'm looking at the fittings that are stored in this here black leather pouch.

Not what I expected behind Door Number 3, but a PSU nontheless. It's a Tagan TurboJet 1100W Model TG1100-U96.
