Opinions on an upgrade
Wasn't sure where to put this thread so i stuck it in PC mods.
I've been running with an Ultra X3 1K watt PSU for some time, but i've been looking at an In win commander for some time, I'm wondering if its worth upgrading to the In win or if what i got is good.
Reason i ask is i know Ultra had trouble with there PSU's awhile back and i'm kinda wondering if that maybe why i'm not getting my overclocks stable, but all i've read about the X3 is good.

so why do you need a 1.2kw PSU? heck why do you need 1kw even? the only way you are going to get close to 1kw even is if you ran 3 high powered graphics cards with a dual CPU setup or something.i5 3750 | ASUS P75 | GTX560Ti | 8gb Corsair Vengence
PII 720BE X3 @ 3.7Ghz | Gigabyte 790GX | HD6850 | 8gb OCZ Reper

(This PSU is serverly under rated, it is supposed to be closer to a 1500W unit).

If thats truly your concern, I would be looking at PC Power & Cooling.
I wouldnt use an Ultra PSU for a paperweight, it might STILL catch fire!
This would be my choice...
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer PPCS910 910W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Active PFC Power Supply Compatible with Core i7 - Power Supplies
