Bingo! i am bragging...
The AMD FX sit at work and just folds its brains out i don't care what happens to it... I use the cheep PSU's because i get them DIRT cheep... i got the CX750m for $50... it is now sitting in an open frame at work... if it wrecks any thing it is a base model GTX570 and low end $50 main board i think i am out $300.
so if any one is upset buy this think of it as an experiment if the cx750 lives for more then a year its a good PSU...

my PC and my wife's PC computers have good PSU and i don't beet the crap out of them

I've always held with the assertion that the PSU is the life blood of your PC and the cheaper you go the more you stand to loose I'd rather spend a little more for good quality than go cheap and have my whole pc go poo

Lets see how far this corsair cx750m makes it with all 8 cores and a gtx 570
Good thing i keep the boxes and can rma them all....

The Roseweill and TT 450's blew the driver fets on the 120v side
The 600 w TT TR2 blew the 12v rectifire off the main transformer it is funny as it lists 2 rails there is only 1 and the rectifier was only rated @20 amps max

Get an Enermax Psu, Problems solved,

Very expensive psu but psu is the most important component in any high end pc build, especially gaming rigs.

Although I had an very old galaxy one years ago and that went out but I think I overloaded it to much, turn on your pc, the whole bedroom goes dark, trips the breaker.

But I had this psu for quite some time, Excellent psu.

Enermax is like asus for motherboards, wont switch anytime soon, all my mobo's been asus for the most part.

I mean if your dumping $$$ on high end components, at least at first buy a good high quality build psu, that is utmost of great importance, I can not stress this enough.

My highest recommendations on a Very good psu price wise:

$250-$300 U.S.D

200 maybe at the very least, but I recommended the above price range, even though that doesn't mean crap'o'la in some ways.

Granted, there is good ones out there that I am totally unaware of, stuff from Ultraproducts,Lepa,and so on.

This enermax psu I am using, I been using this since the x58 build, never used x79, I waited for the haswell-e cpu to come out along with the new ddr4 technology.

And that x58 system was highly overclocked, Xeon W3550 oc'ed @ around 4.4-4.5ghz I believe it was or a lil higher, GTX 690(Not at default clock speeds), Ran at that speed at all times, Not once did my psu ever flunked and still using it now, Excellent Built PSU, especially for lasting this long.

And I did alot of stress test on cpu's with this PSU, I have yet to see it fail.

I try to maintain it once in awhile, take it apart, use electronic dust cleaner, works excellent, clean psu FTW.

Hilbert did an review on the Current PSU I own, here take a look:

Review title: best power supply ever

Pros: This power supply owns your fase off. Every once in a while it shoots flames out the back grill. The first time my friends saw it happen they were like, "whoa you rule!" One time I was at a LAN party and totally owning fools playing CSS. I got a rad headshot and this PSU started smoking and i was like this is satans power supply! at that point i knew i was in love with it. I tested the 12v line and it was putting out 15V, how sweet is that??? thats like 3 extra volts of pure power, which is I'm sure is totaly upping my megahurts. Oh yeah and at least once a day this thing will make rad noise like an electric guitar wailing. If your hardcore, this PSU is for you.

Cons: None at all. this thing weighs only like 1/2 pound so your LAN rig is way easy to carry. I cant even believe how sweet this thing is.

Other Thoughts: This power supply is for true hardcore overclockers! if you had problems with it before its only because you dont even know what you are doing!!!!
