I stand corrected. Price doesn't correlate with quality in PSU's.
There's a lot of expensive no-name crap out there.

Of course brand is probably the best correlation with quality but interestingly so is weight.  So long as makers do not start purposefully adding weight (none I know of so far have) if you pick it up and it feels light.... its junk.

I have seen Xion and some other units and they are about 1/3 lighter then the good brand names and they do not last.

enermax and corsair are way too expensive to justify. I am totally for getting a solid psu for your mining rig, but those are borderline ripoff.

I use the coolermaster silent pro certified that's half the cost and never had any problems with them.

i have a computer w\ a 600w coolermaster and if i hook up more than 1 gpu, it starts smelling like burning.

I had a psu start to smell like that when I put the 3rd card on it.... so I left it running to see how long it lasted. Well let's just say in a few hours I was getting my RMA #.

coolermaster has many different lines of psu some are pertty cheap. but i like their silent pro gold/bronze certified models, seems to be high quality and half the cost of corsair/enermax. Most review tests confirmed the voltages are stable under max load. Good enough for me...

Choosing between these two, I took the Corsair - the difference of 50W wasn't worth the extra cost for the CM.

Apart from the lackluster cable length and the way they have paired the main cables, the Unit from a very quick specs glance and a quick look on Johnny Guru it doesn't look like a bad company. There lower end units got pretty good scores and looking at the power rating on the 12v rails they look pretty solid.  Wink pretty good by imo
