As far as I've heard they both have adjustable pots, which is a big advantage.

But, I'm just not really sure which is better/more reliable.

A thing in the PSU that you can turn to adjust the voltage rails.

No problem. ;)

I would get the fortron

but only becuase of the number of fans

fortron's 2 fans are already too many

I find fans on the bottom of the psu bothersome

fotron's have a better reputation than ttgi, plus, they give out more wattage than they say they do, for example, fortron's 350w model peaks out at 454w

i would buy the fortron 530w because its such a low-priced high quality power supply

They are both very good products as far as the reliablity/ low cost ratio. I'm kinda a noise nerd, so my choice would be which ever one is quieter. 4 fans could be loud but I looked and they are adjustable. Does either one have seperate pot adjustements for each rail? Thats a pretty cool feature some PSU's are now offering .

I would tend to agree.
Those PSU with 4-5 fans are a bit silly.

Does the TTGI really need all those fans?
If so why? Do they use less efficient components, thus
creating more heat?

Personally, I'd get the Fortron. :D
They are clearly capable of more than advertised.
Some use the fsp250 to power their OCed nForce2 rigs.
Still others use the fsp300 in thier loaded dual CPU systems.

I would go with the 530w Fortron Source also. Corrected my rails when my antec true power 420w was getting the **** kicked out of it.
