Here goes a second time, lol.
As the sig will show, current case is Akasa Zen, which I consider to be a smart move.

I know that the PSU will elicit much views opposite to mine.

Currently Tagan 580W Silent 2Force.

Mr Wicked refers to Johnny Guru's review, and while that may be a good reference point, I tend to have my own way of rating things.

At present, the current PSU fullfills all my needs and I am thinking of upping to the 700W Dual Tranformer variant.

I am no overclocker, and as yet no catastrophe has befallen me.

I am on the whole happy with what I am familiar with.

Ergo, I would reccomend the Akasa Zen case -as has two other review sites.

PSU wise, I fully recognise that to each his own.

you're not alone. there are other folks here who will swear by their tagan or epower. there are also people in the world who will swear that their Kia Rio or Hyundai Accent is a better car than a Honda Civic or Mazda 6.

ROFL

At least we agree to disagree with civility


My big vote would go with the Akasa Zen; its Intel approved vent takes air to cool the cpu by 4 degrees C


If one is going to use ones pc for alot of load bearing work, then your choice might well be better.

As little or no stress is endured by my old faithful, I am happy with my PSU.
