    Zalman flower's seem to be everywhere......but i cant find a psu anywhere. I thought i had seen at kustompcs, but i cant find it anymore.

    I dont know the particular merits of this supply, but avs seem pretty keen on it. Has anyone tried it above the likes of an enermax?

    just another thought into my head. Big power ratings tend to mean a supply has less strain and thus sounds better. Is this also the case for hcpc supply? Is it worth going over the top on your power supply, say to the level of the 430w enermax?

    thanks

    The PSU is very important, the quiet ones are good for keeping the PC quiet but not as good as a power source. Get an Enermax even if its just the 350W one.

    I knew the quality was important.......i had just been led to beleive that the zalman was very good quality and quiet to boot.

    Is it worthwhile going for the bigger power supply? I'm not really concerned spending a couple pounds more!
