The best reviews are usually done by jonnyguru, he has a website and forum regarding power supplies.

He used to be a member here, though he does not post that much, there are also a few others here that are forum members at jonnguru's forums, they know there stuff!

The Kingwin 80+ are nice PSU's(just wish they were a single rail design)
The Sunbeam's are not very efficient and dont have a very clean current and poor heatsink's(from the reviews I read).

1000w Kingwin Lazer

1000w Kingwin Mach 1 modular

Superflower builds that are nothing spectacular, but they're not bad either. They are much better PSU's than Kingwin's older, Absolute Power series, which are also built by Superflower.

The last good Sunbeam PSU was the Andyson-built 550w NUUO Modular

the more expensive, active PFC offerings that newegg has might be decent, but for the price, there are better PSU of known good quality.

the active PFC Rosewills are probably going to be ATNG, not great but not terrible, either.

trusting voltage readings from speedfan is only slightly less crazy than trusting what Everest reports.

software readings are crap

can't really tell who makes that one, Orn, but I'd bet my next week's paycheck that it isn't capable of putting out it's rated wattage.

I'm sure there is someone out there who bought one of those expecting it to power a heavily oc'd quad-core quad-sli system with a TEC and water cooling...then wonders why he has bizarre stability problems.

Ive had my hands on that same coolmax at a local shop, and it weighs less than a roswell green series 530w 80+ if that tells anything about the quality, you can almost twist it apart with 2 hands its so flimsy.
