Default Corsair AX series

I notice that they're finally in stock @ NCIX so I thought I'd give a heads up to those who were waiting.

AX750, AX850, AX1200

I guess that's a pretty huge markup @ NCIX considering DC has it for $55 less. It's too new to show up on price comparison sites

Not sure what it would take these days to convince me that I needed to pay a premium for a PSU over and above the current accepted norms.

Back in the day when most PSU manufacturer's were putting out crap, there was (IMO anywise) a valid reason to pay a premium for a brand like PC P&C just to ensure that you were getting some kind of quality. These days, the pickins are a hell of a lot better, and we've got a lot more information available to us.

Wilson the PSU you and I got is still considered to this day a bulletproof brick!

I have the original PC P&P too not the one to come out later.
