    Sparkle 400w PSU - seems like a really good price?

    I was browsing through ZZF and ran across this PSU - seems like a pretty hot deal to me.. Thought about getting one so I could mod it with sleeving and such..

    Here's a link
    Case: Cooler Master HAF XM
    Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V
    RAM: G-Skill Ripjaws X-Series 16GB DDR3-1600

    CPU: Intel i7 3770K @ 4.2GHz - 1.18V
    CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme
    Video Card: EVGA GTX 670 FTW Edition
    PSU: Corsair AX-750
    Monitor: Dell U2410

    Any Sparkle or Fortron PSU is a great deal. Inexpensive yet quite capable of putting out much more than their listed wattage. I wouldn't be surprised if that unit can do 500W at peak.

    I know they are good PSU's.. I already have a PCP&C so I don't need it, but at the same time, it seemed like a good price..

    I can find lots of things for good prices on Newegg and ZZF, but I dont buy them if I don't need them...

    You might want to check eBay ... there seem to be a lot of those PSUs lately for a lot less than that. Look for Fortron, Sparkle, or Emacs. I know there are some Emacs 400W PSUs there right now for $9.99.

    Zippy/Emacs is about the only brand I would consider over Fortron/Sparkle, but they get mighty costly in the higher watt models. They mostly cater to the server and workstation markets.
