From your first website review conclusions....

Quote:
As mentioned earlier, some people have found that this PSU can’t handle [COLOR=#000099 !important][COLOR=#000099 !important]full [COLOR=#000099 !important]load[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]. While we couldn’t verify this finding, we did notice how the variance and ripple increased with the load. Coupled with the average internal components, I wouldn’t find this possibility unbelievable. This unit costs $110 online, and for that price you can find a higher quality PSU like the Corsair TX line. Thermaltake makes great power supplies, but this mid-range line performs a little lower than an enthusiast should expect.
They themselves came up with a 4% varience on the 12V line from idle to load and that with a medium/high load (500W) compare that on their own charts with the corsair TX @ 1% and you end up with a 12V varience that's 400% worse than corsair's older line let alone their new one.

It's up to you of course, but if a company doesn't stand behind it's product enough to send it to somebody like jonnyguru for testing, it probably isn't up to the task of putting out it's rated power.
