Tagan Dual Engina 700w

Hey guys, I'm starting to really like the psu, its like THE quietest psu I've herd since the days of at psu's! When nothing on the system is really running, the fans cut off and it goes totally 0db. Even when I'm playing q4 or bf2 it doesn't make more noise than the 6 ultra quiet 80mm fans that I have in various places. I am fixing to go try and see if the final battle in q4 will make it kick up the fans, as I have yet to hear it, I'm satisfied I have got my money's worth.

OH one more thing, guys who are running full towers.... This psu is your soul mate, it has some of the longest wires I have seen yet(the sata/molex/12v rails are as long as my arm)!

No unfortunately(I wish though). The 12v rails have a actual output of around 56a, but when a single rail goes over 20a, the psu locks all rails together, and makes for one BIG 56a rail.
All votages are on the money, and are never more than .05v off(Fluke 112 multimeter tested). I went and jacked up the oc on my vid card, and it seems to like the Tagan much better than the old real pc power psu...hehe.

The only downsides to this psu are: if your have a mid-tower or smaller case DON'T GET THIS....unless you have 2 drive bays to shove cables in. Also, the manual is laughable, just showing which cables go where for what. I am upgrading soon to a full tower, so I got something with cables that were loooooong.

56 amps is still a whack of juice, my PSU is 28a on the 12v.

Yeah, the way I figure, I'm using around 20-30% of its power.... needless to say the HD cooling fans(2x 80's) are louder than it is.
