Cheers on getting the Decathlon, although it's typically cheaper because you do get what you pay for. I still think the CWT build of the Gigabyte is better quality than the Impervio built SilverStone. Just my opinion.

my personal favorite, Fortron is an old company that used to make very sturdy power supplies.
The Fortron Epslion/Everest 800W is rated at 25C with a de-rating curve of --10W/+1C. In other words, at 40C, you're only getting a 650W, never mind that at 650W and up you get out of spec ripple+noise at ANY temperature. Considering you can get good 650W rated at 40 or 50C for less money, I'll pass.
