    Opinions please: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS

    NewEgg is having a 24 hour sale in thier newsletter and I'm interested in this psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...L0D-_-17152028

    Plenty of wattage for what I need it for (although I'll be disabling the LEDs), but it will be going into a 24/7 server, so I'm more concerned about reliability and longevity.

    And for anyone wondering, its $30 w/free shipping (after $10 promo code and $20 MIR).
    NZXT Switch 810 / ASRock Z97 Extreme4 / i7 4790K @ 4.6 / 32GiB / 780Ti 560TI
    ESXi server / i7-3770s / 16GiB / 16TB ZFS-z2
    Dell R710 in the works...

    if you're going for server reliability, do yourself a favor and don't get a raidmax.

    I couldn't resist

    Seriously though, my raidmax 450w PSU came free with a case I bought a few years back. Only thing I dared plug into it was a desk fan setup.
