    I just ordered a Lian-Li PC76 chassi, I need comments on PSU

    just ordered a Lian-Li PC 76 server chassi =D

    I really need some recommendation what PSU i should buy!
    400 watts or higher is my only demand so far. It doesn`t have to be super silent, but it has to be really stable.
    Thanks in advance!

    The One and Only..... "Antec True Power 550w".

    I just love mine..!!

    Stable and nice. One thing though...the volt rails seems a bit low first time you looka at it. My rails areas follow: 12v= 11.80 5v=4.95 3.3v= 3.29.
    But trie to put it under load....feels like there´s no end to how much it can take....and the volt still remains the same.

    8) or if you like to modefy things get an Q-TEC 550w and rip out the 2 80mm fans and put in an 120mm instead (papst 120mm 56cfm 26dB silent - nearly impossible to hear).Komplett.se is selling q-tec PSU.
    and papst is selling at gtec.net

    Thansk for that tip, i will surely check it out. Is it a true 550 watt PSU? Many PSU manufacturers dont deliver what they promise. Of course if this one deliver 520 watts it will more than enough satisfy my needs, but still ... it would be interesting to know.

    Btw we have some reviews coming up on PSU:s in a short while =)

    well fellas ... I just got my PC76 Lian-Li chassi! :shock: 8)

    Its so huge you could live in it hehe

    About the PSU, I will go for a Zalman 400 watt.
    Here is the specs when we reviewed it:
    12 v 12,12 volt
    5 v 4,87 volt
    3.3 v 3,27 volt

    The cables are somewhat short, but I think it wouldn´t be a problem 8)
