Yeah they are all Seasonic based units I believe. Worth the money.

I have the 850 in my rig. Its a very good, very stable PSU. If it wasnt for the fact that I will soon need a 1 - 1.2kw'er it would be going into my next rig....THAT is how much I like it.

Somebody on the HWC staff just ordered a 1000W unit.... rumour has it that it's going into a TT Lvl 10 GT along with a Sabertooth MB and a couple of MSI Twin Frozr 560ti cards... not completely sure who that might be though..... :) (The PP price over at NCIX on the 1000W unit makes it pretty competetive in the 1000W+ market.... ;) ).
