PCWizKid always looks for reliability and constistant delivery of power in a high end gaming rig. Settle for no less with the Tuniq Ripper. As seen in the video review on idle and load the voltage readings for the 3.3v, 5v and 12v lines showed little variance no matter what conditions. Each individual rail has proved to be clean and within spec which makes this a terrific hard core gamers dream to use for their multiple GPU setup. Only one thing would have made this the ultimate PSU, making it modular. The amount of cabling to work with is a lot, however with a large enough case with good support for cable managment you can easily tuck away all the cables neatly. All round a terrific PC enthusiast PSU.
