  1. Can you link to one or more of those retailers so we can make sure you get the best price/performance?
  2. Oh God no.. That is a horrible PSU. No PFC, only 360W on the +12V rail. Are you sure it was bought in this decade?
  3. That does not mean the PSU is working. You have to have the 24-pin connected to turn on the PSU. Otherwise, the only thing that's live is the +5VSB. It sounds like the 24-pin is wired incorrectly and causing a short. But that should only trip the PSU, not your breaker. So it sounds like the PSU itself is defective as well.
  4. Is it a BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB? Or more like an RARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARA, or it could it be a JAJAJAJAJAJA? Just kidding. You're fine.
  5. SilverStone and Cablemod both sell longer cable sets. Check the cable lengths of the cables that come with the PSU and see if they are or are not long enough first.
  6. What "Corsair"? SF750? Seems that Amazon is just out of stock. Give them a couple days. It's a current model and should be in constant Amazon inventory.
  7. People buy SFX power supplies and put them in ATX cases all of the time. They do it because the smaller form factor gives them more room to manage cables, etc. That said, if you DO get an SFX power supply, make sure the cables are long enough. SFX power supplies are made to go into SFX cases, which are smaller, and don't need such long cables. But quality PSUs (like from Silverstone, Corsair, etc.) will often have aftermarket cables available that are longer than the stock cables.
  8. Because it's literally a switch inside the PSU. It's a relay. Seriously? You're that paranoid? Welcome to the world of buying a quality PSU.
  9. @Tithonius Twins is loud AS F*** due to the 80mm fans. And overpriced. Why are you opposed to an SFX PSU with a bracket?
  10. That's just a cheap UPS. No AVR. Standby only. Good for keeping your router and cordless phone online during an outage. Wouldn't use it with a PC.
  11. @Tithonius That chassis is made for a lower wattage PSU with an 80mm exhaust. But if you're looking for something higher wattage due to the dual CPUs, you're probably going to want to opt for a good SFX PSU with an SFX to ATX bracket. While most higher wattage SFX PSUs have an 80~92mm fan mounted on the top/bottom as opposed to front/rear, the bracket will give you the extra space the PSU needs to allow air into the PSU.
